Traumatic Brain Injuries

Shreveport TBI Attorneys

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are not just medical conditions; they are life-altering events. TBIs are injuries to the brain caused by a blow, bump, jolt, or other head injury that disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. These injuries can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage and can have devastating consequences for victims. In some cases, a TBI can lead to permanent disability, altering a person's ability to think, move, and even interact with others.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can occur in various ways. The most common causes include falls, vehicle-related collisions, violence such as gunshot wounds or domestic abuse, and sports injuries. Additionally, explosive blasts and other combat injuries are significant causes of TBIs among active-duty military personnel. Even what might seem like a minor head injury can result in a TBI if the impact is severe enough to cause the brain to collide with the inside of the skull.

Victims of TBIs often experience a wide range of symptoms and effects that can last a lifetime, including:

  • Persistent headaches or neck pain
  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, or making decisions
  • Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting, or reading
  • Getting lost or easily confused
  • Mood changes such as feeling sad, anxious, or listless
  • Changes in sleep patterns, such as sleeping more than usual or having trouble sleeping

Louisiana TBI Statute of Limitations

In the state of Louisiana, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is notably strict. The law provides a one-year "prescriptive period" that begins from the date of the injury or accident. This includes a range of personal injury lawsuits, such as those stemming from workplace injuries, auto accidents, and injuries caused by assault or violent conduct. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For instance, in the case of a minor who has been injured, the statute of limitations does not begin until the child turns 18.

It's crucial to understand these timelines when considering legal action for a personal injury. If you fail to file your claim within the appropriate period, you risk losing your right to seek compensation for your injuries. Therefore, it's always advisable to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible following an injury.
