Atlanta Brain Injury Lawyer
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur due to a violent blow to your head, affecting the brain tissues. You can also suffer the same in a car accident, a fall, or a bullet that shatters the skull. Brain injuries can be mild, moderate, or severe. A TBI can make you dependent and deny you a quality life.
Suffering traumatic brain injuries due to another person’s negligent acts is daunting. But the law in Georgia entitles you and your family to compensation. Consult an Atlanta brain injury attorney to check your case and discuss your legal options.
Our Atlanta brain injury lawyers at the Dressie Law Firm can help you get justice and recover maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.
Why You Need an Atlanta Brain Injury Lawyer
Traumatic brain injury victims have complications that last for days or a lifetime. As a result, they require long-term, often expensive, medical treatment and care. No amount of money can really compensate for your pain or the time you spent away from your family, but it can help you and your family get back on your feet and ease your financial burden.
A traumatic brain injury lawyer may be your only way to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies will take advantage of your lack of legal knowledge to give you as little as possible or flat-out deny your claim. You’ll then be obliged to take your claim to court anyway.
A fair settlement to a victim nursing severe brain injuries will cover all costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more. You need an experienced brain injury lawyer who can negotiate for maximum damages and relieve you of dealing with insurance companies.
If negotiations fail with the at-fault party’s insurer, your personal injury attorney in Atlanta will file a personal injury lawsuit.
Causes of Brain Injuries
A head injury is one of the common injuries after a car accident, but it results from any blow to the head. The damage severity depends on the blow’s nature and impact. Here are some causes of brain injuries:
Assault and other wrongful acts
Common Types of Brain Injury
Brain injuries can involve bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, or a combination of these. Acquired brain injury complications can be fatal or short-lived. Here are the common brain injuries:
A concussion is a minor injury common in sports accidents or car crashes and almost invisible in a CT scan or MRI. The condition is worse when suffered before another concussion heals. Concussions vary in severity, and they can be in three levels:
Level 1 – A mild concussion can lead to headache, loss of focus, nausea, or dizziness, but no consciousness is lost. Your doctor will likely recommend you resume regular duties once the symptoms subside.
Level 2 – Victims of this moderate concussion can pass out between one and five minutes. If this happens to you after a fall or a blow to the head, seek medical attention immediately. The symptoms include potential amnesia, tinnitus, and irritability.
Level 3 – A severe TBI needs immediate medical attention. Victims experience nausea, mental deterioration, speech difficulties, and loss of focus or memory.
Brain Contusion is bruising of the brain tissue and blood vessel leakage.
Penetrating Brain Injuries is the perforation of the skull that can reach the brain matter. Physical pain is inherent when the loose pieces make contact with the brain. Some causes are slip-and-falls that cause the skull to crack, crushes that crack the skull, a gunshot to the head, or an injury under intense pressure.
Anoxic Brain Injury is the lack of oxygen in the brain that causes permanent damage. It can occur in minutes due to a blood clot, suffocation, choking, drowning, or poisoning. When some (not enough) oxygen gets to the brain, the condition is hypoxic brain injury.
