As a Louisiana resident who has been involved in a dangerous car accident, there are many injuries you could face. Traumatic brain injuries are just one of them. At McGlynn, Glisson & Mouton, we strive to help you through this difficult post-accident period as you recover.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are known to cause victims many problems in both the short and long term. For example, you could face behavioral changes or personality changes. You may experience mental disorders like depression or anxiety. Your sleep pattern could be disrupted, and you may begin to have recurring nightmares.
You can also face physical issues. For example, you may become paralyzed. You could lose both sensory functions and motor capabilities, including fine motor skills and more. You may also lose cognitive abilities. These damages can last for weeks, months, or even years. In some cases, they can be permanent.
The cost of therapy for handling TBIs can be quite high, as you may need to deal with hospital bills, medications, surgeries, at-home care, and possibly more. You may also not be able to do as much work - or the same type of work - as you did before your accident. This can mean you're still losing money without actually making any back.
