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.

What are the Long-Term Consequences of Traumatic Brain Injury?

brain injury lawyer

The severity of a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can range from mild, which is indicated by a temporary change in mental consciousness or status, to severe, which is indicated by an extended period of amnesia or unconsciousness after the injury occurs.

When a TBI occurs, there are a wide array of short and long-term changes that may occur. These changes can affect a person’s way of thinking, their emotions, language skills and sensation. If you, or someone you love, has suffered a brain injury in New Orleans it is a good idea to contact an attorney to learn if you have the right to sue for monetary compensation.

Common Effects of a Brain Injury in New Orleans

Some of the most common effects that occur after a brain injury include:

  • Emotion – social inappropriateness, acting out, aggression, personality changes, anxiety and depression
  • Language – communication and expression ability and understanding
  • Sensation – balance and sight
  • Thinking – reasoning and balance

The effect of these factors can last on a temporary basis, or for months or years after the injury occurred.

A TBI can also lead to epilepsy that continues throughout a person’s life, as well as an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and several other brain disorders. The evidence of these often isn’t seen until later in a person’s life.

After a person suffers a TBI, it is important to undergo regular medical treatment and evaluation to ensure no other symptoms of a brain injury show up. If they do, contacting a brain injury attorney right away is essential.

The Problem with Repeated TBIs

If a person suffers mild TBIs occurring over an extended period of time, it can result in cumulative cognitive and neurological deficits. If repeated mild TBIs occur within a short period of time, such as weeks, days or hours of one another, the results may be fatal.

How to Prevent a TBI

There are several ways you can sustain a traumatic brain injury. Regardless of the cause of the brain injury, it is important to contact a brain injury attorney for help.

Some of the methods of safeguarding a person, at all stages of life, from a TBI include:

  • Make sure you wear a seatbelt each time you ride in a vehicle.
  • Strap children into car seats and booster seats appropriate for their age and height.
  • Never drive after drinking or taking drugs
  • Wear a helmet and make sure your children also wear a helmet during sports, while riding a bike, horse or snowboarding.
  • Make sure homes and businesses are free from hazards that may cause a slip and fall accident.
  • Reduce the potential for an injury from a fall on a playground or in a play area by installing shock-absorbing material.
  • Close and secure windows accessible to children.
  • Use safety gates at stairs if kids are around.

By taking a few precautionary steps, you can reduce the potential for you, or someone you love, to suffer a TBI. If you need help pursuing a TBI situation, a brain injury lawyer can help. You can contact us to learn more about these injuries.
