Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries | Metairie TBI Lawyers
We are familiar with the sometimes difficult-to-identify signs of severe head injuries, and we have helped many clients get the medical care they need, as well as the compensation to pay for it.
We assist clients who are diagnosed with conditions including but not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Accident-related neurological damage
- Closed head injuries
- Open head wounds
- Related back and neck injuries
Sometimes the consequences of head injuries are obvious. The injured person may have lost the ability to control parts of his or her body, may have profound cognitive impairments, or may be unable to complete basic tasks by himself or herself. He or she may even be permanently incapacitated and require lifelong nursing care. When this happens, the person is usually suffering from a condition called traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Many times, TBIs cause more subtle impairments. For instance, the injured person may encounter difficulty completing routine tasks or may become frustrated easily. The person may become more confused or irritable than normal, have slurred speech, or act more impulsively or inappropriately than before the accident. They may even have problems at work or alienate friends. The injured person may say, “I just don’t feel like myself anymore.”
In these cases, a TBI may have been missed in the initial physician’s diagnosis; but that does not make the impairments it causes any less real. If you think that you or someone you love has suffered brain damage in an accident, see a doctor for a full medical examination. Then contact New Orleans Based Law Firm of Stephen Rue & Associates, so we can help you get the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills, ongoing therapies and rehabilitation, and for other long-term care or nursing care that is required.
