There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

TBIs in Sports

Cueria Law Firm LLC brain injury attorney

There is no question that sports are a great form of physical exercise and recreation for both children and adults. However, even though there are quite a few benefits offered by participating in sports, there is also the risk of an injury. Athletes suffer all types of injuries on a regular basis, including fractures, strains, sprains and others. A common sports injury that may result in long-lasting complications for athletes is a TBI – traumatic brain injury in New Orleans.

A TBI occurs any time the brain is injured due to an external, mechanical force that causes brain dysfunction. If this type of injury occurs, an athlete needs to contact a brain injury attorney for help in recovering compensation.

Symptoms and Effects of a TBI

When a TBI happens, several symptoms may occur, including the following:

  • Memory issues
  • Headaches
  • Issues concentrating
  • Disorientation or dizziness
  • Challenges with written and oral communication
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Issues following directions
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Agitation
  • Coordination issues

As anyone can imagine, these symptoms may have a significant effect on a person’s life. If a person does suffer a TBI, they need to contact a brain injury lawyer to ensure their rights are protected.

What Causes TBIs?

In sports, there are a number of forces that may result in a TBI, which include getting hit by an object, such as a ball or bat, physical contact with another person, getting jolted or hitting your head on the ground. A TBI can range from just a minor concussion to severe trauma that results in permanent disabilities. When a brain injury occurs, it needs to be diagnosed and treated right away. The victim will also need to be monitored to ensure that additional issues are not present.

Once you have suffered a TBI, even a minor one, the chances of suffering additional brain injuries increases significantly. Repeated brain injuries can result to serious physical and cognitive dysfunction and to other types of medical conditions in the future. However, this is an extremely common issue for athletes who return to their sport of choice after suffering a brain injury.

Who is Liable for a TBI?

The question of liability in a brain injury in New Orleans situation is best left to the attorneys to answer. However, there are several reasons that the TBI may occur and the reason behind the TBI will typically determine who is responsible. For example, many sports related TBIs occur because of:

  • Improper or damaged safety equipment
  • Not medically assessing the athletes while the athlete is still on the field
  • Allowing a player to return to the sport after the TBI
  • Encouragement of rough play and physical contact

If you or your child suffers a TBI due to a sporting related accident, then hiring a brain injury attorney is the best thing to do. They can evaluate the case and determine whether or not a person can receive monetary compensation for the damages. If you have questions, contact us today.
