Any accident can result in a brain injury. But what each brain injury has in common is that it is life-changing. Beyond the immediate need for medical care, brain injuries will require ongoing treatment, whether they were caused by a car accident, maritime industry accident, or a slip and fall. The extent of a brain injury can also mean loss of ability to work, which can be detrimental to financial security, even if it is only temporary. 

When you sustain an injury in an accident which was the fault of another person, you have the right to file a claim against that person, their insurance company, and any other third parties who may be found liable. In doing so, you must be able to prove that the defending party was negligent or intentional in their actions, which led to the accident. Beyond that, you must also be able to prove that the incident caused your injury. 

Insurance Companies & Traumatic Brain Injuries

While you may think this is open-and-shut, it’s often not. Insurance companies have the financial resources to fight individuals who are injured in court to protect their bottom line. Insurance adjusters understand that a traumatic brain injury causes significant stress and often will offer you a settlement amount, which is much lower than what is needed to recover fully. 

With medical costs adding up and income no longer coming in (or being much less than usual), it can be tempting to accept the insurance company’s offer. But in doing so, you’ll sign away your rights to any future claims. It’s essential to consult with a personal injury attorney who is experienced with brain injuries before you speak to the insurance company. 

At Cueria Law Firm, our brain injury attorney has over two decades of experience fighting the insurance company for fair compensation. Our team works with medical providers, insurance adjusters, and forensic experts to maximize your recovery. You can request a free consultation by giving us a call at (504) 525-5211.

The Effect of a Brain Injury 

The brain is the control center of our bodies, including our personalities, which means an injury can have severe consequences for our quality of life. Depending on the part of the brain which is injured, you can experience problems with your senses, digestion, immune system, muscle movement, and other bodily functions. 

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by excessive force impacting the sensitive tissues of the brain, causing them to move inside the skull. This kind of impact can have rippling effects throughout your body, affecting the function of body parts that were not injured directly in the accident. We’ve seen traumatic brain injuries result from a variety of accidents, including auto accidents, maritime accidents, and slip and fall accidents.

During a brain injury insurance claim, a knowledgeable attorney is needed to prove the extent of the consequences of the accident. Our brain injury lawyer has proven record successfully negotiating claims by injured parties suffering from a variety of symptoms:

  • Cognitive impairment
  • Emotional and behavioral problems
  • Loss of memory
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Seizures
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Fatigue and loss of movement
  • Mental illness such as depression or mood swings

Our brain injury attorney will also evaluate the effect a brain injury can have on the injured person’s family. Loss of ability to provide for your spouse, children, or dependents goes beyond lost wages. Loss of consortium and loss of society are damages that are difficult to quantify, but an experienced attorney will make sure the insurance company evaluates them fairly. 

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Wrongful Death Claim

In the most severe accidents, traumatic brain injuries can result in death. The sudden loss of a loved one is severe enough. Still, in these cases, the surviving families are often left with medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and more financial stress to add to their burden. In Louisiana, family members have a right to file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for their loved one’s sudden passing. 

While this money is not the same as having your loved one in your life, it can help ease the burden while you grieve your loss. To find out if you qualify for a wrongful death claim, consult with a brain injury attorney like ours at Cueria Law Firm. You can give us a call at (504) 525-5211 to request a free consultation at any time.
