Brain Injuries

Chalmette Brain Injury Lawyers 

Brain injuries are among the most severe and life-altering injuries that individuals can experience. The brain governs all bodily functions, emotions, and cognitive abilities. When an individual suffers a brain injury due to an accident, the consequences can be far-reaching and catastrophic. 

Brain injuries can profoundly impact not only the victims themselves but also their families, who may face lifelong caregiving responsibilities and financial burdens. When these injuries are due to someone else’s negligence, wrongdoing, or deliberate intent, victims and their families can file personal injury claims and lawsuits to pursue justice and the compensation they need and deserve. 

At Tonry & Giraud, our competent legal team understands the gravity of brain injuries and their impact on families. Whether caused by a car accident, a truck accident, a slip and fall, or some other negligence-based or criminal attack context, we fight hard to help you navigate the legal system for favorable results.

Brain Injuries in Louisiana Personal Injury Claims & Lawsuits

The brain is the command center for the entire body, and any damage to this organ can disrupt essential functions. 

Victims of severe brain injuries may experience a profound change in their quality of life, including:

  • Loss of independence: Due to cognitive or physical impairments, victims may no longer be able to perform daily tasks without assistance.
  • Emotional and behavioral changes: These injuries can alter personalities, causing increased irritability, depression, and even aggression.
  • Financial strain: The cost of ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and possible loss of income can be overwhelming.

The impacts on families are also significant. They may need to adapt their lives completely to support the injured member mentally, physically, and financially.

Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can range from mild to the most severe, which are traumatic brain injuries. 

These injuries can be categorized as follows:

  • Concussions: These are mild traumatic brain injuries that can cause headaches, confusion, and dizziness. They are common in sports and car accidents.
  • Contusions: These are bruises on the brain that can cause swelling and may require surgical removal if large.
  • Diffuse axonal injuries: These injuries involve tearing of the brain’s long connecting nerve fibers that occur when the head is rapidly accelerated or decelerated, as in whiplash-type events.
  • Penetrating injuries: Caused by an object piercing the skull and entering the brain tissue, these injuries can be fatal or result in significant disability.

Symptoms of brain injuries vary widely but often include headache or pressure in the head, loss of consciousness, confusion or disorientation, dizziness or balance problems, nausea or vomiting, or sensory issues, such as blurred vision, ringing in the ears, or a bad taste in the mouth. 

Brain Injury Accidents

Any accident can cause a brain injury, from traffic collisions and falls to sports injuries and acts of violence. These accidents can create sudden and severe impacts or violent jolts to the head, leading to brain trauma.
