Louisiana Traumatic Brain Injuries Attorney
Concussions or other head injuries are often temporary and do not cause lasting brain damage. However, if there are internal injuries to the soft tissue area of the brain, the result may be permanent and disabling. Serious head trauma or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can cause permanent impairment to multiple functions including speech, memory, reasoning, abstract thinking, judgment, and problem solving. A head injury victim may experience personality changes and altered senses such as taste and hearing. The extent of the injury may not be immediately apparent, so it is critical to have a professional examination by a neurosurgeon if you have suffered a head injury.
