In the catastrophic injury category, several injuries can result in head and neurological function issues. An individual who suffers from a neurological injury can face life-changing damage such as memory loss. It is not uncommon for a head injury to result in neurological function issues, including short-term and long-term memory issues, among other problems. When you suffer a head injury, it is essential that medical attention is provided but also legal action considered. At Cueria Law Firm, we often represent individuals who have been injured on the job and suffered from a head and/or neurological injury.
If the injury is due to the negligence of others or an accident on the job, you may be due compensation for your injuries. By contacting our New Orleans personal injury attorneys, we can review your case and determine if you have a legal path to claim compensation.
One area affected by head trauma is memory loss. It is not uncommon for an individual who suffered a neurological injury to have problems with memory recall. Memories can be lost on a permanent basis or the individual may lose the ability to create new memories. The memory issues one may face will be based on the individual as well as the type of injury incurred.
Memory loss can be a debilitating issue that the individual will have to face for the rest of their life. Everyday tasks may become difficult as the individual is unable to recall certain memories. An individual with short-term memory loss can become extremely forgetful, having trouble finding items in the home, remembering how to complete tasks or trouble traveling to destinations they formerly knew by heart.
Memory loss can affect everyday life in a variety of ways and after the injury, care may be needed in order for the individual to function. Additional symptoms can make every day living even more difficult.
When you or someone you love has been injured on the job and suffered a memory loss related injury, the attorneys at Cueria Law Firm can help. Depending on the type of injury and symptoms you face, you may be due compensation. It is important to seek legal action if you were injured on the job due to someone else’s or the company’s negligence. We can help you build a case where compensation will be provided so that you or your loved one can receive the care they rightly deserve.
