Louisiana Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers — Helping You Get the Compensation You Deserve

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can result from a variety of outside forces. Although not all TBIs are caused by negligence, it often plays a role in serious injuries. Considering how important a properly functioning brain is to our overall health and well-being, a TBI can dramatically alter one’s quality of life for months, years, or even a lifetime. 

The families of TBI victims can also experience immense suffering. With a severe brain injury, the family can lose its breadwinner, parent, spouse, or companion. When a child suffers a TBI, the parents may have to provide lifelong care. At the Lamothe Law Firm, we believe those responsible should be held accountable. Whether your TBI was caused by an industrial accident, motor vehicle crash, slip and fall, or another careless or purposeful act, contact a Louisiana TBI attorney today to seek the justice and compensation you deserve.

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussion Syndrome Explained

When an external force strikes the head and causes damage to the brain, the victim suffers a traumatic brain injury. A mild TBI is sometimes called “concussion syndrome.”

The external force can come from a projectile penetrating the skull or blunt force that occurs when the skull collides with another object. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 2.8 million Americans sustain a TBI annually. Although TBIs can occur for myriad reasons, car accidents are a leading cause in Louisiana and across the entire United States. Other common causes of TBIs include construction injuries, domestic violence and child abuse, physical assault, sports injuries, and acts of violence.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The Aftermath of a TBI

Depending on the nature of the TBI, the victim may need a few days or weeks of rest and observation; require months or years of rehabilitation, surgeries, and visits with neurologists, physical therapists, psychologists, and other medical professionals; or in worst-case scenarios, may need lifelong care. Along with the physical and emotional toll brain injuries can take on the victim and their entire family, TBIs often result in extensive medical bills, lost income, and other financial consequences.

Common Damages in Brain Injury Cases

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, you may be entitled to compensation for any associated damages. Typical damages in a TBI case include: 

  • Medical bills, current and future.
  • Lost wages, current and future.
  • Emotional pain and suffering.
  • Rehabilitation.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Loss of companionship.


Although economic damages, such as medical bills and lost income, are easier to calculate, non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, often account for the largest part of serious TBI claims. An experienced TBI attorney can position you for the best possible outcome and maximum compensation.
