Understanding The Severity Of A Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries can have much longer-term consequences than you initially realize. A brain injury might limit your ability to work or significantly change your career path. Often the full extent of these types of injuries only becomes apparent in the weeks and months following an accident. This is part of the reason it is crucial to meet with an experienced personal injury attorney.

Caring about you and your recovery is part of what sets The Law Offices of Ossie Brown apart. Our Baton Rouge attorneys will take on the legal issues to allow you or a loved one to focus on recovery. From a free initial consultation, we'll be with you at every step of your case, advocating on your behalf.

We take on cases involving brain injuries on a contingency fee basis — this means if there is no recovery, you pay no fee. Regardless of whether a Louisiana car crash or bicycle accident was the cause of the injury, we'll fight to ensure you receive fair compensation.

From Diagnosis Through Recovery

Getting an appropriate diagnosis is the first step when you have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Technologies are constantly improving to diagnose brain injuries. Depending on the part of the brain affected, possible symptoms range from:

  • Inability to concentrate and make decisions
  • Problems with short-term and/or long-term memory
  • Language disorders and reading comprehension issues
  • Difficulties planning and following through

Unlike a spinal cord injury or broken bone, a head injury can initially be overlooked. It may take hours or days to recognize a brain bleed. By the time a diagnosis and treatment begins, damage could be permanent.

Because each brain injury is unique and with different effects, we work closely with you and your family to ensure that the right team of medical professionals is in place to aid your recovery. Our lawyers will work hard to ensure that you receive fair compensation that covers medical bills, wage losses as well as the harder-to-quantify pain you have suffered.
