We Can Help You Seek Compensation After A Life-Changing Traumatic Brain Injury
If you or someone you love has experienced a severe traumatic brain injury, it’s important to speak with an attorney at The McGarity Group right away regarding your legal options in Georgia. Insurance companies, whether working on behalf of a negligent party, an employer or even a health care provider, will always try to settle as fast as they can for as little as possible. We know that hardball negotiations with the insurance carrier or litigation are often the only ways that you or your loved one who has been injured will be awarded the resources necessary to move forward after a life-changing injury.
Common Symptoms And Consequences Of A Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. Some signs or symptoms may appear immediately after the event, while others may appear days or weeks later. Symptoms and side effects of TBI often depend on how severe the injury is.
Symptoms associated with mild TBI include:
- Loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes
- A state of being dazed, confused or disoriented
- Memory or concentration problems
- Dizziness or loss of balance
Moderate to severe TBI symptoms include:
- Loss of consciousness from several minutes to hours
- Profound confusion
- Agitation, combativeness or other unusual behavior
- Slurred speech
- Inability to awaken from sleep
- Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
- Persistent headache or a headache that worsens
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
If you have been involved in an accident and are showing any of these side effects, it is essential to seek medical attention and determine if you have suffered a brain injury. It is also important to meet with an attorney at The McGarity Group for help with seeking accountability and compensation from the at-fault party.
Challenges TBI Victims May Encounter At School Or Work
Depending upon the severity of the TBI, some individuals may experience only a few challenges in the workplace while others have more difficulties. The most common difficulties in these settings are related to attention span, short-term memory, organizational skills, headaches and mental fatigue. If you’ve had to take significant time off work due to your injuries, we will include lost wages in your calculated damages.
