Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Caring, Results-Focused Legal Representation for Louisiana Accident Victims

One of the most severe potential consequences of any blow to the head is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Whether classified medically as severe, moderate or mild, a brain injury can have a profound impact on an individual’s ability to work, think clearly, communicate and function both physically and socially.

Dodson & Hooks, APLC is on the forefront of head injury legal recovery in the United States and abroad. Our team is dedicated to justice for our individual clients in the court of law. We also remain actively involved in building rehabilitation centers in countries lacking the resources needed to successfully rehabilitate head injury patients. Our goal is to help head injury patients achieve a higher level of functioning and an overall better quality of life.

A Track Record of Sizable Recoveries for Brain Damage Sufferers

Our respected law firm has extensive experience advocating for people injured in car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents, along with a clear strength in maximizing recoveries for Jones Act seamen who have suffered offshore injuries. Our lawyers are diligent not only in proving negligence and liability, but also in fully documenting the medical costs and total impact of a traumatic brain injury, as we have in past cases resulting in:

  • A six-figure confidential settlement for a seaman who suffered severe head injuries aboard a vessel docked in Iberville Parish
  • A six-figure settlement for multiple international seamen who suffered brain damage, disfigurement and other injuries when high waves crashed onto the deck of their vessel at sea
  • A multimillion-dollar judgment in the case of two Filipino seamen, one killed and the other left with permanent brain damage, who were struck by an 18-wheeler when returning from shore leave on the ship’s bicycle

Our Baton Rouge traumatic brain injury attorneys immerse ourselves in the medical facts of the cases we handle, aided as necessary by qualified neurologists, other physicians and behavioral specialists.

Head Injury Complications and Costs

Even a seemingly minor head injury can result in permanent disabilities. The costs of urgent care immediately following a head injury can be significant, but immediate care can be the difference between developing complications and regaining functionality. In addition, many moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients require treatments and rehabilitation for years or a lifetime. Our Baton Rouge traumatic brain injury attorneys calculate a just recovery taking into account the lifetime costs to you and your family.

We know that a TBI — whether diagnosed as edema, hematoma, concussion or otherwise — may require extensive, costly rehabilitation or even lifelong care. As a result, we are relentless in holding any insurer or responsible party accountable for negligence that causes a TBI.
