Traumatic Brain Injury

Based in Alexandria, Louisiana, Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC has provided legal representation for clients in the Alexandria area for over twenty years. The firm handles serious injury cases including brain injury cases stemming from car accidents and other traumatic events. Trauma from a motor vehicle accident can cause the soft tissues of the brain to push against the unforgiving bone of the skull, potentially leading to bruising and even bleeding in the brain. It is important to understand that these injuries can occur even when a person’s head does not strike the windshield or other surfaces inside a vehicle. The impact itself may be sufficient to cause such an injury.

A personal injury victim suffering a serious head injury must find an experienced Alexandria attorney who focuses on personal injury law. When you hire Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC to represent you, you will get an aggressive lawyer who understands how significantly even a mild brain injury can change a person’s life.

Possible Symptoms

  • Most brain injuries are classified as mild. The injured person may not have lost consciousness at the accident scene and may not seek immediate medical care. Symptoms may include headache, confusion, dilated pupils or a dazed feeling after the accident.
  • Delayed symptoms may include insomnia, memory problems, fatigue, mood swings or greater sensitivity to noise or light. It is important to seek expert medical treatment if you are concerned about a potential brain injury even if you were not transported to the hospital from the accident scene.
  • Moderate and severe brain injuries can result in more obvious symptoms like amnesia, extended loss of consciousness, paralysis, numbness, slurred speech, seizures or even a coma.

Proving Your Claim

  • Personal injury attorney Chris J. Roy, Jr. with Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC will obtain expert medical opinions from your treating physicians to prove your injury.
  • The treating doctors can testify about your diagnosis, the cause of the injury, necessary and reasonable treatment for your injury and your chances for recovery.
  • We will obtain your medical bills and payroll records to prove your medical expenses and wage loss caused by your head injury. Your lawyer will send these documents to the responsible driver’s insurance company to allow the insurer to evaluate your claim.

Settling Your Head Injury Claim

  • As the client, you possess ultimate control over what personal injury settlement offer to accept. However, Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC will assist you in determining the value of your claim. Remember that part of the settlement amount may be needed to pay outstanding medical expenses.
  • The attorneys at Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC in Alexandria focus on serious personal injury law. We frequently negotiate with Louisiana insurance companies to get the money our clients deserve. We can explain all of the legal documents you will have to sign when your case settles.
  • If your case does not settle, we can take your case to court. Sometimes litigation is necessary if the insurance company is not willing to pay a fair amount for your head injury claim. Many cases are settled during the litigation process. Filing a lawsuit does not guarantee that a case will go to trial.
