Georgia Brain Injury FAQs

By Grant Law Office on February 18, 2016

Brain injuries often leave victims with long-term or even lifelong consequences. Those with traumatic brain injuries may need long-term treatment, care, and rehabilitation. Many costs may have to be paid out of pocket. Here are answers to some of the questions victims and families may be asking in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury.

What are some of the clinical features of a traumatic brain injury?

Immediately after suffering head trauma, you may lose consciousness, feel dizzy, or forget what happened right after the accident. These are warning signs that must be taken seriously. Some victims of head trauma experience a reduced ability to respond to stimuli, difficulties with breathing, and changes in muscle tone.

What are some of the common causes of brain injuries?

Atlanta car, motorcycle, pedestrian, truck, and bicycle accidents are common causes of traumatic brain injuries. Anyone who has sustained head trauma in an accident should seek out medical attention, even if you were wearing a seat-belt and were protected by an airbag. Traumatic brain injuries can also result from slip-and-fall accidents, construction accidents, and physical assaults.

Who will pay for my medical bills and other losses?

The cause of your brain injury will affect who is liable for the injuries you have suffered. For example, if a reckless car driver caused your injuries while speeding or driving intoxicated, that driver is liable for your injuries, damages, and losses. Property owners are liable for the injuries that occur on their dangerous premises.

What is my brain injury claim worth?

The cost of treating brain injury victims can be exorbitant. Many victims require numerous tests, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation services and time away from work. Some victims of head trauma are never able to return to work and require in-home care and support. The value of your claim will depend upon the severity of your injuries and the expenses you have incurred and continue to incur as a result of those injuries.

Do I have to file a claim right away?

In Georgia, there is a two-year statute of limitations on all injury claims. This means that you must file a claim within two years of the day of the accident. If you wait too long, you could lose the opportunity to seek compensation for your injuries. An experienced Atlanta brain injury lawyer can help you file a claim in a timely manner and help you secure the compensation you need and rightfully deserve.
