Brain Damage & Spinal Cord Injuries
Dedicated to Helping Individuals with Catastrophic Injuries in Baton RougeDodson & Hooks, APLC has taken a very active role in assisting those with spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries. The firm has pioneered recovery for brain injured and spinal injured clients and seamen, both American and international clients, earning tens of millions of dollars in awards. In addition to pursuing justice for those with a head injury or back injury, we have actively worked to build brain and spinal rehabilitation center programs in Europe where no facilities for recovery are technologically available.
We believe in putting our time, energy and resources, as well as our legal skills, into helping those with traumatic brain injuries.
Following even a minor accident or injury, brain injuries often take a significant amount of time to reveal themselves fully and for the victim to be able to understand the long-term consequences. It is extremely important to obtain medical help and proper testing and treatment soon after a traumatic event.
Long-Term Brain Damage Considerations
At Dodson & Hooks, APLC, we have a physician on staff to provide a preliminary evaluation of your case. By providing prompt medical attention, we are able to preserve evidence and establish a medical plan to repair the damages as quickly as possible. In addition, our team possesses the financial resources to strategically pursue the maximum compensation possible. In some cases, the brain damage is more apparent to the injured victim’s friends and family than it is to the injured individual. In other cases the damage is catastrophic.
