Catastrophic Injury Claims in Louisiana

Catastrophic injuries are those that are life-altering and commonly leave the individual permanently disabled. These are the type of injuries that affect a person’s quality of life.

They also deeply impact the surrounding family, who often face many hardships or make significant sacrifices when dealing with such a situation. Medical care expenses for catastrophic injuries can spiral into staggering amounts.

Victims of catastrophic injury and their families may also be burdened by the cost of:

Home and vehicle renovations
Medical equipment
Providing personal assistance

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury in a fault-based accident, it is imperative that you seek knowledgeable legal help. Obtaining the fair and full compensation to which you are entitled requires aggressive action and negotiation to battle an insurance company which will be determined to convince you to accept a minimal settlement.

These companies generally employ an army of legal staff whose sole aim is to reduce the payout of claims’ settlements to protect profitability.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when some type of blow to the head results in swelling, bruising, increased pressure, or microscopic changes in the brain. A TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe depending on the force of the  impact, and can lead to minor, temporary aftereffects or unresolved symptoms that last forever.

Despite treatment, people with moderate or severe TBIs generally suffer irreversible brain damage. They may experience severe or ongoing dizziness, headaches, migraines, sensitivity to light and noise, visual problems, fatigue, seizures, sleep problems, emotional problems, and cognitive difficulties, making it difficult or impossible for them to work and participate in normal activities.

How Do Catastrophic Injuries Happen?

Catastrophic injuries are typically caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, slips and falls, industrial accidents, defective product incidents, medical malpractice, and criminal attacks.

Such injuries can impact every aspect of the injured person’s life, rendering employment and independence difficult or impossible. Making any kind of recovery from a catastrophic injury can be a long, involved process that could take months or years.

The medical care required to manage a catastrophic injury is often ongoing, and could include multiple surgeries, rehabilitative care, occupational therapy, physical therapy, PTSD counseling, and more. In such cases, the financial resources available through a personal injury claim become extremely crucial to the injured person as well as his or her family.
