Brain Injuries

Help For Brain Injury Victims in Atlanta

Brain injuries are a special category of injury and are unfortunately not an uncommon result of a car accident. These can range from mild concussions to severe closed head injuries that can lead to paralysis and even death. Even the more mild brain injuries can have long-lasting and severe consequences including debilitating disorientation and permanent personality changes. Brain injuries can be difficult to treat and their effects often take a long time to realize. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car wreck and suffer from a brain injury an Atlanta car accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for medical expenses and the associated costs of being unable to work and enjoy life fully.

It is extremely important to contact a car accident attorney as soon as you have been diagnosed or suspect brain trauma. It is very difficult to predict the long range outcome of such an injury and you need the best possible representation to ensure your interests are protected.

What is a Brain Injury?

When one suffers a blow to the head, the brain can be bruised inside the skull. It can suffer tearing on a microscopic level.  Fluids can build up around the brain which puts pressure on the brain. A serious brain injury can be diagnosed by medical personnel during after-accident evaluation but there are indicators of brain trauma that you need to know if you have been in an auto accident whether or not you have been diagnosed.

Are any of the following indicators present or more pronounced since your accident: Do you have headaches or temple pain or stabbing head pains that last just a few seconds? Does your memory seem worse after the accident? Are you now forgetful or have people told you that you ask the same question over and over? Do you have trouble coming up with the correct word or know it but can't say it? Are you easily tired or do you now find it tiring to think? Are you easily overwhelmed in crowded or chaotic settings? Are you more impulsive and do you say things you later feel were inappropriate? Do you have more difficulty concentrating and are you easily distracted? Is it harder to get and stay organized? If you have any or several of these indicators you should be medically evaluated to determine the level and extent of any possible brain injury.
