Aggressive Advocacy For Brain Injury Patients And Their Families
Because your brain is the hub of the central nervous system, any damage to it can have debilitating and potentially lifelong consequences. Moreover, the care and attention brain injury patients require can present practical and logistical challenges to their family’s financial situation and emotional well-being.
Therefore, if you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) through no fault of their own, you can contact the law firm of Chris Villemarette, Trial Lawyer. Our Lafayette personal injury attorney stands up for the rights of TBI victims and their families throughout Louisiana. We will aggressively seek maximum compensation on your family’s behalf to cover both your immediate and long-term needs.
Diagnosing A Brain Injury
Brain injuries range in severity from minor concussions to debilitating conditions resulting in permanent disability. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of TBIs, but individuals can also sustain serious neck or head injuries as a result of a serious fall, a trampoline accident, a sports injury, a work-related accident or even medical malpractice.
In some cases, simply diagnosing the extent of brain damage is difficult. Some of the more common signs of a serious brain injury include:
- Frequent headaches or debilitating migraines
- Forgetfulness/absent-minded behavior
- Slurred speech or language problems
- Lack of coordination in movement
- Disorientation or difficulty focusing
- Confusion or difficulty with comprehension
- Abrupt mood swings
- Wandering off
