When the Worst Happens, You Need a New Orleans Brain Injury Lawyer
Sustaining a brain injury is one of the most frightening and uncertain medical situations a person can experience. Symptoms can range from skull fractures, confusion, convulsions, unconsciousness, and blurred vision, and in serious cases, death. The aftermath of these symptoms is often undetermined, and a brain injury can result in permanent or long-term brain damage that can affect a person physically, emotionally, and financially. Because of the severity of this type of injury and the inconclusive impact it can make on a person’s life, it is paramount to contact an experienced New Orleans brain injury lawyer.
What a Brain Injury Attorney Can Do For You
Filing claims and dealing with insurance companies can be stressful and confusing, and you may often question if you are being treated fairly and receiving the adequate compensation you need. Because of the indeterminate nature associated with brain injuries, financial compensation can be difficult to measure and insurance companies and other responsible parties will not only try to underestimate the cost of your needs but they will also be less likely to treat your case with the serious attention it deserves if you attempt to negotiate without legal representation. A knowledgeable New Orleans brain injury lawyer at Bloom Legal will assess your needs in order to file the proper claims for you and will communicate with the insurance companies and responsible parties to ensure you are treated fairly.
Traumatic Brain Injury Claims
It is estimated that nearly two million people will experience a traumatic brain injury each year. These injuries are often caused from a variety of different accidents, such as car crashes, sports injuries, and slip and fall accidents. Most of these causes stem from human negligence and can be avoided. Yet the impact of a traumatic brain injury can be life changing, and sometimes the symptoms can take months to correctly diagnose and recognize, making the aftereffects of this injury even more challenging. This is why it is important if you or someone you know has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you need to consult with an experienced New Orleans brain injury lawyer.
Symptoms of TBI vary depending upon the severity of the injury. Mild TBIs typically produce symptoms including:
- Brief loss of consciousness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blurred vision
- Memory and concentration deficits
Moderate to severe TBIs produce more serious symptoms, including:
- Extended loss of consciousness (including coma)
- Convulsions or seizures
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Fluid draining from the nose or ears
- Weakness or numbness of the extremities
- Loss of coordination
- Slurred speech
Mild TBIs can often be treated with drugs, but moderate to severe TBIs usually require surgery and extensive periods of rehabilitation, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychotherapy. The costs associated with these treatments can add up and place a severe financial strain on victims and their families. If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should consider contacting a New Orleans personal injury law firm to evaluate your options for seeking compensation.

"I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
