Vincente’s company refused to acknowledge that his brain injury was work-related. After months of fighting in court, Vincente obtained a favorable, confidential settlement. Our office was very proud to help him through his tough fight with the company.
Vincente is from Dallas, Texas and suffered a brain hemorrhage while working offshore. His company refused to acknowledge that the hemorrhage was work-related. After months of successful fighting in court, Vincente obtained a favorable, confidential settlement. Our office was very proud to help Vincente through his tough fight with the company.
Brain injury cases like Vincente’s are some of the more difficult and rewarding cases to work on. Unlike other injuries, brain injuries can be difficult to detect and determine a cause. They also tend to have drastic, longlasting effects on a victim’s personality and ability to function in day-to-day life. Oftentimes the victims suffer severe psychological issues such a depression, anxiety, and even PTSD. They can have difficulty interacting with family members the way they used to and many times feel like completely different people after their accidents. This puts a strain on the family and those closest to the victim.
This kind of case requires not only a lot of patience, compassion, and support but also a team of experts and specialists to accurately diagnose and treat the injured worker. We had to consult with neuroradiologists and neuropsychologists to truly understand what injuries and longterm affects our client was suffering from.
In the end, we were able to get him the support, care, and settlement he needed to be able to support himself throughout the rest of his life. Though Vincente will never be able to return offshore to the work that he loved, he’ll be able to find other ways to create a fulfilling life with his settlement money and support from family and friends.
