Did you know that chronic pain can cause an acquired brain injury? When an accident causes you to have “Chronic Pain,” which is pain that doesn’t resolve after 6 months, two things can happen:
- The medicine that you are given and your endorphins, which are your body’s own pain killers, work on your brain to trick it not to feel the pain.
- Over time, this can cause atrophy to the hippocampus, which controls memory, learning and emotions. You may start to be frustrated because you can’t remember why you walked in a room or argue with your loved ones like never before.
When dealing with your injuries after an accident, it is important to have a lawyer that understands this fact. A knowledgeable and compassionate New Orleans injury lawyer cares as much or more about their client’s long-term health than the compensation he can get their client. Your legal representative should be made aware of any chronic pain you may be dealing with so that they can seek out any additional financial help to cover the cost of potential brain injuries.
