Head and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) Lawyer
Injuries to the head and brain are considered catastrophic when they cause long-term brain damage or disabilities. When a head injury is caused by negligence in a vehicle crash, fall or other type of injury accident, there can be lasting brain damage and disability. Our experienced head and traumatic brain injury (TBI) lawyer, Keith D. Leshine, can seek compensation for your head injury if you were the victim of a negligent accident in Georgia.
Head trauma can cause severe injuries that change the victim’s life forever. Physical trauma to the head can impact vision, speech, hearing and smell, and it can also impact appearance. Beyond the physical damage to the head, traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can occur. TBIs can be mild to severe. If severe, it can cause interference in brain function. Some effects of TBI can include:
- Decreased cognitive function
- Behavioral changes
- Memory loss
- Emotional or mood disorders
- Speech abnormalities
- Physical disabilities
Victims of head trauma may face a long road of medical treatments and therapies. Some will never completely recover and need long-term care. Head and traumatic brain injuries can be devastating to both the victim and their families.
Causes of TBI and Severe Head Trauma
Motorcycle and other vehicle accidents are common causes of head and brain trauma. A direct blow to the head can have severe damage to the skull and brain, with permanent damage. Falls from unsafe conditions at the workplace, medical facilities and even businesses can cause head injuries, especially for those who are elderly. When a TBI or head trauma is caused by negligence or unsafe conditions, the responsible person or entity should be held liable for the harm to you or your loved one.
