Lake Charles Accident Lawyer Explains Brian, Spinal, & Orthopedic Injuries

The accident happened in a matter of seconds, but the injuries you suffered may last you a lifetime.

Some of the most traumatic and long lasting-injuries that people suffer in an accident impact their brain, spine, or bone structure. Sadly, these injuries are often preventable, and they leave you to face lifelong disability if not treated quickly and correctly.

At Marceaux Law Firm, we know that your pain will last you long after your accident and after your settlement is finalized. That’s why we want to give you valuable information to help you know what to expect and how to handle your recovery.

  • Brain Injuries. Car accidents, industrial accidents, and construction accidents can all leave victims faced with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Usually, brain injuries happen because of a direct blow to the head. This type of injury can have a significant impact on your mood, emotions, ability to focus, motor skills, and more. Because your brain is the central control station that tells your body what to do, how to feel, and when to move, any serious impact or injury could radically change your personality, abilities, temperament, and behavior.
  • Spinal Injuries. Your spine is critical bone structure in your body. Its job is to help you stand up straight and route nerve signals from the brain throughout your body. When your spine is injured, you may experience significant pain, numbness, or weakness— even paralysis. This can impact your quality of life and your ability to perform the functions of your job.
  • Orthopedic Injuries. Your bones are tough and designed to protect the rest of your body from certain amounts of force. When the force is stronger than your bones can take, they may break or fracture. Unfortunately, many breaks and fractures are difficult to fix and may require extensive surgeries or weeks and months of immobility. In many cases, your bones may never heal correctly and may never be the same. Many people that have broken a bone or experienced an orthopedic injury suffer from lifelong pain from arthritis or other types of bone injuries.
