Few things can turn your life upside down like a head injury caused by an auto collision. Find out what a fair settlement would be by working with a Baton Rouge car accident brain injury lawyer.
It’s no secret that a brain injury can completely change your life. Not only are our brains central to our cognitive functions, but they also enable our physical capabilities. This means that a traumatic brain injury (TBI) suffered in a car crash, such as a concussion or contusion, can have devastating consequences for both areas of your life.
With that in mind, brain damage can cost you financially, emotionally, and physically, justifying you to a substantial settlement from whomever caused your wreck. A Baton Rouge car accident brain injury lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers can help you both gauge what a fair settlement would be and obtain it from those responsible.
The Impact of an Auto Wreck Traumatic Brain Injury
As the full effect of brain injuries are often delayed, it can take some time to fully understand how your TBI will affect your life. This shouldn’t prevent you from filing a personal injury claim as soon as possible, however. Louisiana only allows a liberative prescription of one year, and filing quickly will preserve your right to seek compensation.
After a traumatic brain injury, you’ll be faced with repercussions to both your finances and your quality of life. For example, if you experience amnesia, memory problems, emotional changes, or difficulty understanding concepts, this can strain your marriage and personal relationships, and it can also make it impossible to work.
You might also encounter physical problems, such as blurred vision and problems with your balance and coordination. This can interfere with your ability to drive and take part in hobbies, whether they involved reading or playing sports. And once again, you might no longer be able to continue with your current line of work.
Obtaining a Settlement for a TBI Caused by a Car Crash
Because your brain injury was caused by a car accident, your monetary settlement will most likely come from an insurance company. This might seem like good news, but the reality is that they aren’t going to be on your side. Brain injuries are expensive to both treat and live with, and insurance companies maintain their profit margins by settling claims as cheaply as they can get away with.
By working with our office, you can negotiate a settlement for your TBI on equal footing. We’ll clearly lay out everything that needs to be included in your demand for compensation, such as any of the following that apply to your case:
Current and future medical expenses
Medication and therapy
Lost income and earning potential
Pain and suffering
Lost companionship and damage done to your marriage
Lost enjoyment of life
