When most people think of brain injuries they think of people lying in a hospital bed in a vegetative state. However, many victims of moderate and mild brain injuries can, at first glance, appear unaffected by their injuries. At Modica - Dowden, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, we know how to identify and prove the causes and effects of severe, moderate, and mild brain injuries.

A lot of terms are used when discussing brain injuries: brain damage, TBI, closed head injury, and concussion are only a few.

Experienced Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

When people think of spinal cord injuries, the first thing that comes to mind is paralysis. While paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia are common results of spinal cord injuries, there are also less severe results that can nonetheless have significant short- and long term-consequences. Cervical injury, thoracic injury, lumbar injury or sacral injury are associated with specific parts of the body. Some of the common results of spinal cord injuries are:
  • Paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Lack of bowel and bladder control
  • Loss of sexual function
  • Heart rate and blood pressure problems
  • Inability to control body temperature
  • Chronic pain
  • Incontinence
Your physician can determine if you have suffered a spinal cord injury, neck injury, disc injury, head injury or other injury. At Modica - Dowden, Attorneys at Law, we have over 40 years of experience dealing with serious and catastrophic injuries. We recognize that when spinal cord injuries occur in car accidents, trucking accidents, and in slip-and-fall premises liability cases, they are often undervalued by insurance companies. Our firm works with a variety of medical experts to assess the short- and long-term consequences of a spinal cord injury and help ensure you are fully compensated for your injuries. We handle all our spinal cord injury cases on a contingency basis. If we do not win your case, there is no fee for our legal services.
