We Handle All Types of Brain Injury Claims 

A brain injury impacts how the brain functions. The type and severity of the injury determine the impact on the brain and bodily functions.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by a blow, bump, or jolt to the head (closed head injury). You can also sustain a penetrating injury that results in brain damage. Penetrating injuries occur when an object fractures the skull and enters the brain.

Our lawyers handle all types of brain injury claims, including those involving:

  • Mild, moderate, and severe TBIs
  • Concussions
  • Strokes
  • Birth injuries
  • Contrecoup brain injuries
  • Diffuse axonal injuries
  • Hematomas
  • Edema (swelling of the brain)
  • Hemorrhages
  • Hypoxia (lack of oxygen)

Insurance companies try to label brain injuries as “mild” TBIs. However, even a mild brain injury can cause severe damage, especially if it is not treated promptly. Therefore, it is always best to seek immediate medical treatment after a blow to the head.

Prompt medical care reduces the risk of developing a permanent impairment or life-threatening condition. It also helps limit allegations that you made your injury worse by failing to seek timely medical care. 

Allegations of failure to mitigate damages could hurt your chance of receiving compensation for the full value of your damages.

Potential Symptoms and Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The signs and symptoms of a brain injury vary greatly. 

However, common signs indicating you may have sustained a brain injury include but are not limited to:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Tingling in the extremities (i.e., limbs, feet, and hands)
  • Loss of control of body functions
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Unexplained mood swings
  • Seizures
  • Paralysis
  • Memory loss
  • Confusion and/or difficulty concentrating
  • Diminished mental capacity
  • Loss of balance and/or coordination
  • Vision and/or hearing loss

It can be difficult to know whether you sustained a brain injury because some of the symptoms may be mild, and you may experience vastly different symptoms than another person. The symptoms may develop over a few hours or days or worsen. That is why it is essential to be checked out by a medical professional after any type of accident.

  • Defective products (product liability)
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Slip and fall accidents

What Damages Are Available in a Brain Injury Claim in Kennesaw, Georgia?

Georgia tort laws allow personal injury victims to pursue economic and non-economic damages. 

Examples of the damages you could receive in a brain injury claim include:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Occupational, physical, and other rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Nursing and/or personal care
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Mental health counseling and therapy
  • Long-term care for permanent impairments
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and diminished quality of life
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress

A brain injury that causes permanent impairments could prevent you from returning to work or earning any income. You might require round-the-clock care. Even if you recover fully, the recovery period could be lengthy and expensive.

Our Kennesaw brain injury lawyer will diligently document all damages you incur. We’ll work with you, your family members, your physicians, medical specialists, financial professionals, and other experts to analyze your damages to determine the correct value of your personal injury claim.

Can I Recover Damages If I Am Partially to Blame for the Cause of My Brain Injury?

A handful of states bar victims from recovering money for damages if they contributed in any way to the cause of their injuries. Georgia’s comparative fault statute is not as harsh. Instead, the state has adopted a modified comparative negligence law for personal injury claims.

If you are 50% or more at fault for causing your brain injury, you are barred from recovering compensation from the other party. In other words, you won’t receive money for your damages.

You may receive compensation if you are under 50% to blame. However, the court will reduce your damages by your level of fault. Therefore, if you are 10% to blame for the car crash that caused your brain injury, you are only permitted to receive 90% of the damages awarded by the jury.

Insurance companies and defense teams use comparative fault against accident victims. They may argue that you are partially to blame – with no evidence to back it up. An insurance adjuster might try to trick you into saying something the company could twist to imply you admitted fault.

Our Kennesaw personal injury attorneys are familiar with these tactics. We’ll fight the allegations aggressively to protect your right to fair and just compensation for your brain injury claim.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Brain Injury Lawsuit in Georgia?

The Georgia statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years from the injury date. However, there could be exceptions that shorten or lengthen that time.

Therefore, you should not delay speaking with an attorney. If you don’t file your claim before time expires, you could lose your right to take the party who caused your brain injury to court. You would have no legal means to hold them responsible for the damages they caused.
