It is no secret that suffering from a brain injury can cause physical and emotional problems going forward. This is why our New Orleans attorney takes the condition so seriously, especially when the injury is the result of someone else’s negligence.
At the Cueria Law Firm, L.L.C., our New Orleans brain injury attorney has witnessed every possible traumatic head injury scenario possible, from auto accidents to sporting injuries and slip and fall accidents to violent occurrences. The common factor in each of these accidents is that the result is devastating for the injured and their families. These cases can cause serious cognitive and mobility issues, leaving you or a loved one at the mercy of another for long term care. The medical expenses — even when extended care is not necessary — are considerable, and so are the lost wages. Our brain injury lawyer has represented innumerable cases over the past two decades, helping those who suffer return to their pre-accident livelihoods with the help of a financial settlement.
Our firm provides free consultations to the community of New Orleans in an effort to discuss the seriousness of these accidents and the toll the trauma can take on their livelihoods. The effects of brain injury can include vision problems, behavioral issues, and even mobility constraints, which is why it is important to assess the overall damage immediately so the settlement will become a reflection of your overall long term needs. Never take a quickly offered settlement from an insurance company’s lawyers, or from attorneys who represent the public or private party who caused your injury. Allow our professional attorney to provide you with the resources you need to determine the overall extent of your injuries so you are not left paying out of pocket for your pain and suffering.
