Semi-truck accidents have the potential to cause serious injury to people involved in them. They are an unfortunate reality of highway driving, and the risk of truck accidents cannot be completely eliminated. Fortunately for victims of truck accidents, Georgia law allows people to recover for injuries caused by negligence through a personal injury lawsuit. A person who is injured in a truck accident may be able to receive compensation for their medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, or property damage, among other losses that may have been incurred. Because of the complicated legal and technical issues that may arise in truck accident cases, it is important for victims to hire an experienced Clayton County truck accident attorney as soon as possible. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated to helping victims of trucking industry negligence get the full compensation that they deserve.
Many people who are involved in truck accidents suffer from concussions. Concussions are a mild form of traumatic brain injury that occur when a bump or jolt to the head results in a disruption in normal brain function. They can range from mild to severe, and may or may not result in a loss of consciousness. While many concussions will resolve on their own, they have the potential to result in serious long term complications. As a result, anyone who has been suspects that they may have sustained a concussion in a truck accident should seek medical attention immediately. Some common signs and symptoms of a concussion include:
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Nausea or vomiting
- Difficulty concentrating
Concussions can result in significant economic and non-economic losses which may be compensable in a lawsuit. Anyone who has been injured in a truck accident should retain the services of an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible.
