Our Brain Injury Fights For Your Rights
While we cannot guarantee an outcome, we can assure you that we put forward our best efforts. Our attorneys are seasoned trial lawyers and while we attempt to settle cases outside of court, we are not afraid to battle before a judge.
Damages for a Brain Injury
When the brain suffers an impact, it can result in physical, behavioral, and cognitive consequences. You may lose some of your memory, become irrationally angry, or experience extreme migraines. Traumatic brain injuries can even lead to paralysis or permanent mental disability. Because of the impact a brain injury can have on a person, these fall under the category of catastrophic injury.
With the help of a lawyer, you can seek damages for:
- Medical bills
- Continued medical care
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of wages
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Medical equipment
If someone is responsible for your condition, you need to hold them accountable. Filing a lawsuit could help you secure much-needed finances while also making sure the other party pays for their actions.
What Are the Signs of Brain Damage?
Common signs of brain damage include but aren’t limited to:
- Mood changes
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of consciousness
- Tiredness or dizziness
- Problems with memory or speech
- Blurred vision
A brain injury is a very difficult injury to suffer through because it usually impacts you on so many levels. If you have suffered a brain injury through someone else’s negligence, contact our firm today to learn more about how we can help you.
Why You Need to Act Now
In Mississippi, you only have three years after the date of an accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. This is called the state “statute of limitations.” In some cases, you may have three years from the date of the discovery of the injury. For example, if you were hurt in a car accident, but you did not start having seizures for six months, you would have three years from the time that you were diagnosed.
