One area of personal injury that Brister and Brister is particularly interested in is representing victims and their families who have suffered a brain injury.

Head injuries, even those from a seemingly mild blow, can turn out to be devastating, leading to a need for medical and rehabilitative treatment for the rest of the victim’s life.  The most common causes of brain injuries are falls, violent attacks, motor vehicle accidents, and sport injuries.  It is estimated that seventy to ninety thousand people suffer a traumatic brain injury each year.

Automobile Accidents

Driving is one of the most dangerous activities that we participate in on a daily basis.  Serious injuries often result from one car accidents or particularly, when two or more vehicles are involved.  When a semi (18-wheeler) or motorcycle is involved, chances of injuries increase dramatically.  In these situations, victims benefit from seeking a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney.

Andy Brister is experienced in helping his clients get the settlements they deserve after suffering injuries in automobile accidents.  Please contact the office of Brister and Brister at 1-318-559-5800 or 1-800-473-0295 for further information.  It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible due to the statutes of limitations (a time limit placed on filing a law suit) that may exist.


Causes of Car Accidents:

This list represents just a few of the many causes of automobile accidents.

1.  Intoxication – the driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol

2.  Driver error – Speeding, running red lights or stop signs, and talking on cell phones or other distractions are all examples of driver error

3.  Bad weather – rain, fog, and other inclement weather can cause tires to lose traction or a reduction in visibility

4.  Road Condition – Bad road conditions, such as: pot holes, debris in the road, poor visibility due to tree or grass overgrowth, can lead to serious accidents.


Wrongful Death

Death is a tragedy under any circumstance, but it is particularly tragic when it is believed that it was caused by the negligence of another person or by an intentional act.  The family members left behind have the legal right to file a wrongful death suit if they believe their loved one died due to neglect or other intentional acts that led to death.  They can sue for damages such as:

  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased and the deceased’s family

It is helpful to have a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney to assist with these types of suits.  Andy Brister is accustomed to the legal actions that are necessary to get positive judgments for his clients.
