Unfortunately, on continual basis, innocent people driving in Gwinnett County or elsewhere in Georgia are hit by careless and negligent drivers. Along with having their vehicle damaged, many drivers have their heads impact their car’s windshield, steering wheel or other extremely hard surface in the car. Auto accidents throughout Georgia can cause minor to severe injuries. Severe injuries from auto accidents can include a brain injury.
Along with auto accidents, one can sustain a brain injury from other types of injuries including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Other trauma to the head, including a sports-related injury
Regardless of how you sustain the traumatic brain injury, it can be life-altering. In fact, treating a traumatic brain injury is a lengthy process, from the emergency care to the long-term medical implications (often life-long 24 hour care). This medical treatment is very expensive and adds up quickly.
