Not all Traumatic Brain Injuries show up on imaging scans, and there’s a strong case to be made that the majority of brain injuries are much more subtle than diagnostics can account for.
When a person is involved in an auto accident or a fall, their head can whip violently forward and backward. The brain, which is cushioned in a layer of liquid inside the skull, experiences the same movements, slamming into the skull with great force.
The forces it is subjected to can cause damage to sensitive neural clusters both on the surface of the brain, as well as in deeper structures that can affect mood, memory, and personality.
If you’ve been injured and have begun to display symptoms like memory impairment, vision problems, mood swings, vertigo and balance problems, changes in social behaviors, or trouble with reading comprehension or hand-eye coordination, you may be showing symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury.
These types of injuries can have a significant impact on your ability to work, maintain family relations, and manage friendships.
At The Gertler Firm, we build comprehensive cases that demonstrate the level of harm you’ve experienced from a Traumatic Brain Injury in New Orleans.
We rely on expert testimony to inform juries about how subtle changes in the brain may not be visible through imaging and other diagnostic tools, and then work with families, friends, and colleagues to show how the victim’s life has been altered by these changes.
