It is important to note, that the workers’ compensation insurance carrier  is responsible to pay for most related medical treatment that flows from the original work related injury.  EXAMPLE: If you suffered a work related back injury,  and following your injury, your doctor has diagnosed you with urinary incontinence (inability to control your bladder), workers’ comp  is responsible for providing medical treatment for that condition, as well as your back injury.   EXAMPLE: If you suffered a work related back injury and your doctor has diagnosed you with erectile dysfunction, workers’ comp is responsible for providing medical treatment for that condition, as well as your back injury.  The same holds true if you suffer with debilitating depression following your physical injury; you are entitled to speak with a medical professional to address your depression and/or anxiety.

After a brain or head injury, things that were simple and familiar are sometimes difficult, complex or strange. Victims who have sustained brain and head injuries can become less efficient, unpredictable, unreliable and at times violent. Behavioral problems can arise at home, work or school, which then cause personal and professional relationships to suffer. Many times diagnostic tests including EEGs, x-rays, CT scans, MRIs or PET scans cannot detect brain injuries. Psychiatrists, neuro psychologists, friends and family, however, can often provide assistance and insight diagnosing head and brain injuries.

There is much at stake and innumerable legal issues involved in obtaining proper compensation for these kinds of injuries in Louisiana. That is precisely why it’s so important that victims of head and brain injuries hire a lawyer who can examine and undertake the legal tasks involved to protect their rights.

When we see people who have sustained these kinds of injuries, we want to help them and take care of them by using the experience and knowledge of our team.
