Our client and his family were rear ended by an 18 wheeler while stopped for traffic on a bridge in Louisiana. Our client was a successful business man who initially did not appear to be injured in the wreck. But, after the dust settled, his family began to notice changes in his behavior and his personality. Forgetfulness and confusion that weren’t present before the wreck became more apparent. They reported this to his family doctor who fortunately recognized the clues of a mild traumatic brain injury. As time passed, the symptoms did not go away and began to have an adverse impact on his ability to make business decisions. They hired CMZ after the trucking company’s insurance carrier offered only to pay for their initial hospital visit and for the value of their luggage that was destroyed in the wreck. We retained specialists in the field of neurology and neuropsychology to diagnose and examine the extent of his problems. And, we retained qualified experts to evaluate his loss of earning capacity due to the mild traumatic brain injury. The insurance company treated our client as a fraud. But, the jury saw it differently and awarded him just compensation for his physical injuries and loss of earning capacity.
