Brain Injuries

Atlanta Brain Injury Attorney

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Personal injury accidents are almost always traumatizing and, in many cases, catastrophic. One of the worst injuries that a person could suffer in an accident is traumatic brain injury. This injury is sustained when the victim receives a blow to the head that is strong enough to impact the brain and cause injury, resulting in swelling, dizziness, and nausea, and confusion. More severe cases may also include unconsciousness, memory loss, or even a coma.

Effects of Brain Injuries and the Need for Ongoing Compensation

When a brain injury is severe enough, there may be long-term or permanent consequences. Permanent brain damage could result, or the victim could require ongoing therapy and treatment to rehabilitate from severe trauma.

Unless you retain an aggressive lawyer who will fight relentlessly for ongoing compensation, you could face financial stress when the compensation stops before your medical bills do. At The Kalka Law Group, we have experienced defending insurance companies from such claims in the past, and we know how much compensation you are entitled to for these situations.

Brain Injury Claim Statute of Limitations

Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations on most personal injury cases, including those involving a brain injury. The two-year statute of limitations begins on the date of injury. If it expires, then the court will usually refuse to even hear any claim filed after that point.

However, the statute of limitations for a brain injury claim could be a little different. Not all brain injuries are diagnosed or even obvious on the same day that they occur. For example, you could have an underlying brain injury after a car accident but not see a doctor about your symptoms until a year later. A court might agree that the two-year statute of limitations in your case should begin on the date of your traumatic brain injury (TBI) diagnosis, not on the date of the crash.

Most Common TBI Symptoms After an Accident

Given that a brain injury is not always immediately noticeable, it is important that you see a doctor after an accident that might have hurt your head. Only a medical professional can order diagnostic tests and accurately diagnose your injury.

Symptoms that might indicate you have an undiagnosed brain injury include:

  • General confusion
  • Memory issues
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Chronic migraine
  • Uncharacteristic mood swings
  • Dizziness or balance issues
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Fainting or unconsciousness
  • Tinnitus
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Unexplained seizures
  • Slurred speech

Please see a medical professional as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. If you are suffering from an acute symptom or have no one to take you to the hospital, then you should call 911 because driving yourself could be dangerous.
