A brain injury can have a profound impact on a family. Brain injury victims must often incur expensive medical care. Sometimes brain injury victims require such medical care for the remainder of their life. Brain injuries can be so severe that their victims are left unable to work for long periods of time. Your attorney must hire the experts needed to calculate the extent and cost of medical care you will need. Your lawyer must also hire the experts needed to calculate the lost earnings you will sustain as a result of the personal injury.
The physical pain associated with brain injuries coupled with the emotional pain of the situation, can be overwhelming. Your attorney must speak to your friends and family to determine who might make a good witness to discuss how this brain injury has affected you from both a physical and emotional standpoint.
Louisiana law recognizes that brain injury victims are entitled to be made whole following an accident. Below are a list of damages that you could be entitled to recover in your personal injury case:
- Medical Expenses
- Past Lost Wages/Future Loss of Earning Capacity
- Physical Pain and Suffering
- Permanent Disability
- Scarring and Disfigurement
- Emotional Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
