Q
A year ago I suffered a brain injury in a car wreck. I’m still frustrated and angry with the person who did this to me. Are my feelings normal, and what can I do about them?

A

Yes, it is normal to want your old life back and to feel frustrated for not being able to do the things that you once did. This is especially true if your life has completely changed as a result of the accident. Perhaps your doctor pulled your driver’s license, leaving you feeling isolated; or you simply can’t do the things you used to do, or as fast as you used to do them. You may suffer from memory problems or feel depressed about your career opportunities. You may feel badly that your injury also has affected your family.

When you are the one who is suffering due to the negligence of another driver, it is justifiable to feel anger at the other driver. However, it is not okay to act out on that anger. Instead, here are two things you could consider doing as a Georgia brain injury victim:

  • Pursue compensation and justice. Although no amount of money will take away your injuries, receiving fair compensation and justice for the wrongs done to you can help you in your emotional recovery and healing process.
  • Join a support group. Other brain injury victims can understand you and help you get through this difficult time. Support groups are a great way to vent and talk to those who can relate to your frustration about the accident.

For help pursuing a Georgia personal injury lawsuit for your brain injury, please call an Atlanta injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith today at 770-HURT-999. We will offer you a free case consultation as our way of introducing the firm.
