Suffering a spinal cord or brain injury has lifelong consequences. Creed & Creed Law can help you fight for the compensation you deserve for your or a loved ones' injuries.
Brain injuries caused by someone's negligence do not just affect your physical and mental health. They can also take a severe toll on your financial health. Treatment for a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to several million dollars, depending on the extent. In addition to the medical costs, you lose more money to prescription medicine, nursing home care, lost wages, and diminished quality of life.
An attorney from Creed & Creed, serving the Delta region in northeast and central Louisiana, is experienced in obtaining evidence, including expert medical opinions, that is necessary in establishing your brain injury resulted from negligence of a third party and fight for compensation while you recover or manage your new circumstance.
A sudden, violent jolt to the head can cause a traumatic brain injury. The trauma can result from car accidents, falls, falling objects, sports-related injuries, gunshots, assaults, or wounds created by sharp objects.
Unlike most injuries, even seemingly minor trauma on the head can be catastrophic. The injuries often leave severe, medically-unnoticeable problems, which can manifest several months or years after you suffered a concussion.
Clinicians classify traumatic brain injuries based on the cause and severity of the injuries sustained. The most common types for which we help clients get compensation include concussions, contusions, skull fractures, and anoxic brain injuries.
Aside from the most common types of traumatic brain injuries, doctors have four classifications for traumatic brain injuries. These classifications are:
Depending on the force, traumatic brain injuries can create mild to severe symptoms that have short and long-term effects on a person's cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being. The most common symptoms associated with this injury include the following: headache, dizziness, confusion, impaired coordination, memory loss, mood changes, fatigue, insomnia, sensory changes, and loss of consciousness.
Why hire an attorney who is experienced in handling brain injury cases? Your local attorneys at Creed & Creed have the experience necessary to navigate Louisiana's complex legal system. We will investigate the circumstances of the brain injury and gather solid evidence to support your claim. Representation is crucial, as insurance companies may try to minimize the amount to which you should be entitled by making the following claims:
Once you file a claim for TBI compensation, insurance companies may allege that you did not suffer a TBI. The providers tend to make claims when there are no symptoms to show that you have brain injury conclusively.
Having handled such scenarios for more than 25 years, our attorneys will collaborate with skilled neurologists and medical experts to find even the most microscopic injuries you could have suffered in the event of an accident.
Besides trying to refute claims of a TBI, insurance firms might claim that your injury is minor and deserves little or no compensation. In such a case, our award-winning brain injury attorneys will ensure that your compensation includes past, present, and future medical expenses and lost wages as well as general damages for pain and suffering.
