Helping Clients Document the Full Extent of Their Injuries

After a maritime accident, motor vehicle accident or other serious accident, you may have only one opportunity to obtain fair compensation from the responsible party. It is important to understand the full extent of your injuries before signing any type of settlement agreement.

At the law firm of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., our Louisiana personal injury lawyers are experienced at helping clients identify and seek treatment for injuries that are often overlooked at first. Among the most common of these are the following:

Brain injuries: While some brain injuries are diagnosed immediately, some are more subtle, and symptoms may not become apparent until months or even years after the incident. These symptoms may include significant changes in personality and coping skills.

Psychological injuries: Serious accidents can leave victims with long-term psychological injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. People who develop these conditions as a result of accidents may be entitled to compensation.

Injuries that increase in severity: Certain types of injuries, including whiplash and herniated disks, may not seem very severe to begin with, but they may get worse over time, or they may persist even though they were fully expected to heal relatively quickly.

If you have been injured in an accident, your first step should always be to see a doctor and describe all of your symptoms in detail. If you develop additional symptoms later, it is important to talk to your doctor about those symptoms rather than hoping they will go away.
