After an Atlanta trucking accident, you or your injured loved one may be at risk for a traumatic brain injury (TBI), an oft-overlooked type of injury that is not always readily detected by emergency medical respondents. Speak with an Atlanta auto wreck attorney if you’ve been the victim of one of the thousands of truck driving accidents that plague Georgia highways each year. 

First, emergency room physicians don’t always check for traumatic brain injuries – remember, the job of an ER doctor is to stabilize you and address the most immediate and pressing injuries.

Second, mild cases of TBI can often be spotted by family members before the injury becomes serious, so know the warning signs.

Third,victims can sustain a TBI even without losing consciousness – based on Centers for Disease Control and Medline Plus Findings TBI is a blow or jolt that disrupts brain function and “may or may not” cause a loss of consciousness. 

Reach out to an Atlanta auto wreck attorney who can provide you with the aggressive legal representation you need to make your case to the insurance companies, and, if need be, to a court jury. Truck driving accidents leave chaotic destruction in their wake, and the financial burden of picking up the pieces should not be left on the shoulders of the injured victims.
