Seizures are a complication that can be suffered from head trauma in an accident. It can also lead to a chronic condition known as epilepsy. When someone else’s reckless behavior, such as a drunk driver car accident, causes you to suffer serious injuries then you may have the right to seek compensation. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can explain your rights.
The impact on a victim can be difficult physically and emotionally. However there are also costly complications that can be suffered. Not only are there the medical costs to treat these seizures but some people may not even be helped by treatment.
This can lead to reduced earnings or even permanent disability. In addition, if there is any delay in treatment there may be consequences such as brain damage or even death. The cost to care for a brain injury can be significant.
When you have suffered any type of loss or incurred expenses after developing seizures from a truck accident, you may have the right to recover damages. These damages can include not only your economical losses (medical bills, lost earnings) but other losses such as:
- mental anguish; and
- reduced quality of life.
