When it comes to traumatic brain injury cases an attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith will be your advocate.
The brain controls who we are and what we do. After a Georgia car accident, a head injury can affect a person’s ability to communicate, relate to others, enjoy life, or function on a daily basis. Because getting a favorable brain injury settlement can impact your future significantly after an accident, a brain injury lawyer can prove invaluable to your wellbeing. The team at the Law Offices of Shane Smith understands the issues faced in traumatic brain injury cases and can help you and your family through this difficult time.
For instance, if you or a loved one has experienced a car accident and head injury, you are one of the more than 1 million Americans who will experience an injury to the brain this year. About 50,000 brain injury victims will die from their injuries; many others will never fully recover. Their lives and the lives of their family members will be changed forever.
Answering Your Questions about Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
If you or someone you love has sustained a brain injury, we understand that you may have questions, such as:
- Will my loved one recover?
- How will I care for and support my injured family member?
- Will there be ongoing medical expenses?
- How will I pay for medical care, rehabilitation and therapy?
- How am I going to make up for the time I have lost from work?
- What will the future hold?
In many cases, the outcome of a brain injury depends on the medical treatment that the victim receives. Brain injury victims may need ongoing medical treatment, physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation and other special services. These services are not cheap; every year, traumatic brain injuries cost Americans about $60 billion dollars in medical costs and lost wages. In fact, depending on the severity, a brain injury can cost $600,000 to $2,000,000 over a lifetime.
Working with You to Help Secure a Brain Injury Settlement
In Georgia, the law allows a victim to seek monetary compensation when their brain injury is caused by negligence or a wrongful act.
Examples of negligence include:
- Drunk driving accidents;
- Super speeders;
- Truck accidents;
- Reckless driving car crashes;
- Pedestrian accidents and
- Distracted driving car crashes.
We can work with you to seek compensation in a Georgia brain injury settlement, which may include payment for the cost of medical and rehabilitation services, ongoing therapy and long-term care, as well as lost income, loss of quality of life, and pain and suffering. Be aware that insurance companies don’t want to pay this money. You’ll have to fight for your rights at a time when you may not feel like fighting.
