Brain Damage and Brain Injuries

BATON ROUGE BRAIN INJURY ATTORNEYS

Insightful, Caring Attorneys for Victims of Brain Damage in Louisiana

Brain damage may be apparent and quickly diagnosed after an accident — or it may require time and in-depth medical analysis. In some accident cases, head trauma is only one factor in an array of problems, and symptoms of a brain injury take time to sort out. If you have any suspicion a brain injury has occurred after an accident you believe was caused by someone’s negligence, please contact us for caring, informed legal counsel.

At the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, law offices of Locke Meredith, Sean Fagan & Associates Injury Attorneys, we have earned credibility as advocates for brain injury victims and their families. Some of our largest recoveries for our valued clients and their families have come in brain injury cases, including:

  • A jury award of over $15.5 million for one brain injury victim — and an additional out-of-court settlement worth $1.2 million for the passenger of his vehicle — after a truck accident case involving driver inattentiveness and negligence
  • A $5.4 million jury award in East Baton Rouge Parish for a man severely injured by an explosion while performing his job duties at a manufacturing plant
  • Many other sizable recoveries for people injured under other circumstances, whether brain injuries were moderate or permanently disabling

Diligence in Case Valuation and Accounting for Anticipated Lifelong Costs

Top-quality medical diagnosis, treatment and overall care can be essential to your claim as well as to recovering as much quality of life as possible.
