Suffering a blow, strike, or penetration to the head can lead to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Those who suffer from a TBI often experience physical, emotional, and cognitive damage. This damage can require extensive care at enormous expense.
If your loved one’s injury was caused by someone else’s negligent, careless, or reckless actions in a car accident, you might have the ability to seek compensation to help ensure your loved one receives the medical care and support they need.

The Life-Changing Impact of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries can vary in degree, with mild cases causing temporary dizziness and other minor symptoms. According to Cleveland Clinic research, of the 230,000 people diagnosed with a TBI each year, 99,000 will have a long-lasting disability. This data further indicates the long-term and life-altering effects of TBI include:
- Cognitive difficulty, including impaired focus, memory, judgment, temperament, ability to grasp and understand concepts, and ability to reason and make sound judgments
- Difficulty controlling movement and motion, overall muscle weakness, and diminished balance, coordination, and dexterity
- Decreased sensory abilities, including physical sensation and visual acuity
Many TBI patients also struggle with behavioral and emotional challenges, including inappropriate excitement, irritability, depression, and lack of impulse control. These symptoms of TBI can mean those who suffer from it may require constant observation, care, and assistant throughout their recovery. In some cases, this might mean lifetime assistance.
Our team takes your current and future needs into account when we represent you in your pursuit of compensation. When we value your compensation claim, we include the care you or someone you love will need in the future.

Talk to your lawyer about the cause of your loved one’s injury. It may qualify them for financial compensation.
We might be able to help you file an insurance claim or lawsuit on your own behalf or behalf of an injured loved one. The care required to recover from or cope with a TBI can last a lifetime. These are not financial expenses you and your family should be responsible for.

Take Immediate Action
A TBI can lead to immediate financial losses. Do not wait to take swift action toward recovering from the immediate physical and financial impact of this life-changing injury.
Also, Louisiana law generally limits your ability to seek compensation from a personal injury lawsuit to one year from the time of the injury, according to Louisiana Civil Code (CC) § 3492. If you do not file your lawsuit during this time, then you may not be able to receive any financial awards for your injuries and losses. However, if the injured loved one is your minor child, the law may allow the statute of limitations to toll, or pause, until they turn 18.
Your lawyer can find out how the state-mandated timeline applies to your personal injury claim and how your loved one’s age and other factors might alter the timeline in your favor.
Recover These Expenses For Your Ongoing Needs
A TBI can make it impossible for you or an injured loved one to work to support themselves. It can also mean you and other family members might miss earning opportunities while you or your loved one recover and learn to cope with the changes their injury will necessitate.
