Being involved in an accident can be a very traumatic and stressful experience. In some cases, you will feel the effects of an accident long after the dust has settled. Among the most serious injuries you can sustain from an accident is a concussion. While this is considered a mild brain injury in New Orleans, there are still a number of side effects associated with a concussion. If the concussion you have sustained is due to an accident, then contacting a brain injury attorney is important. The attorney will be able to put a price tag on your injuries and work hard to get you the money you are owed.
Dealing With Post-Concussion Syndrome
The most complex condition associated with this type of brain injury in New Orleans is post-concussion syndrome. Some concussion sufferers can have this condition years after their initial injury. Some of the most common symptoms of this condition are dizziness, fatigue and behavioral changes. Many medical experts are baffled by this condition and not able to fully diagnose the cause.
There are many concussion sufferers who claim they have regular headaches and migraines as a result of their brain injury. In some instances, this condition will prohibit sufferers from carrying on with their daily life. If your concussion has caused you to be unable to work, then you will need to talk with a brain injury lawyer to see if you are entitled to compensation.
Getting Paid For Concussion Related Injuries
In order to get compensated for concussion related injuries, you will have to get a lot of documentation. The first thing you need get is a report from a doctor stating the medical problems being experienced are directly related to the accident in question. Without this type of medical documentation, you will be unable to get the money you are owed for a concussion. Be sure to schedule appointments with a few different doctors to get a wide array of opinions on your condition.
A Pain and Suffering Claim
Another common tool used to get compensation following a concussion related injury is the filing of a pain and suffering claim. When filing this claim, you will have to prove the accident in question has prohibited you from carrying on a normal life.
A doctor will have to document how severe your condition is and the restrictions it has produced. If this case goes before a jury, you will have to testify and tell about the suffering this injury has caused. Working with an experienced brain injury attorney will allow you to gain insight on whether or not the case in question is worth pursuing.
