There are many possible consequences of Georgia drunk driving accidents. One of the worst outcomes of these dangerous wrecks, which are caused by irresponsible and reprehensible acts, are head or brain injuries.
The skull and brain are incredibly important elements of the human body. The brain is our way to process and put out information; without it we cannot live or breathe. Despite its importance, however, the brain is also very vulnerable to injury or trauma.
Some 50,000 to 100,000 people suffer a serious head or brain injury every year. Motor vehicle accidents are the #1 cause of these injuries. Head injuries, such as a broken skull from hitting the windshield or TBI from whiplash can be alarmingly common.
Head or brain injuries can have serious costs associated with them. Not only can all head or brain injuries easily be fatal, but even slightly less serious instances of injury can lead to disability, memory loss, mood swings, pain and suffering and much more.
If you have lost a family member, or your family has been torn apart by the difficulty of dealing with the head injury of a loved one, you know how hard it can be. There is no reason that you should have to bear the consequences of someone else's negligent choices, especially if a drunk driver caused the wreck.
If you believe a drunk driver who caused a costly wreck while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs has wronged you, you may be able to recover damages in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against them. Call a lawyer in your area to learn more.
