Let Our Cumming Brain Injury Attorney Help While You Heal

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a personal injury that hinders or interferes with how the brain processes information. It may be caused by a jolt or impact to the head or some type of penetrating injury to the head, such as a gunshot wound. Generally speaking, TBIs are divided into three main categories:

  • Severe TBIs
  • Moderate TBIs
  • Mild TBIs or concussion

The severity of these injuries ranges from mild concussions that cause brief changes in mental status to severe concussions that cause extended periods of unconsciousness or memory loss, among other severe symptoms. Most brain injuries, fortunately, are mild concussions, although as the number of concussions rises, so do their cumulative effects. That is to say, 10 mild concussions can be as damaging as a single severe TBI. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s wrongful act or negligence, an experienced Cumming brain injury attorney at Gilormo Injury Law can help.

Establishing a Bonafide TBI

It can be challenging to establish the existence and severity of a TBI. Often, TBIs may not become entirely symptomatic for days, weeks, or even months. Additionally, TBIs can be difficult to objectively diagnose due to the fact that much damage may occur inside the head, with little to no visible physical damage. To completely account for all of the damage caused by a TBI, you’ll need the help of our Cumming brain injury lawyer.

Establishing a Connection Between an Accident and a Brain Injury

Once the existence of a brain injury has been established, it becomes important to show the connection between the accident and the TBI, as well as the extent of the accident and injuries. Pictures can be powerful evidence for establishing the likelihood of a TBI if allowed into evidence. They should show all damage to both the interior and exterior of all of the vehicles involved, as well as details of any visible injuries to the victim. 

This is because when the physical damage to the vehicles is severe and the injuries to the victim show extensive trauma, it’s easy to believe that a TBI has been suffered.  

Other types of evidence may be allowed, including testimony regarding reductions to a victim’s memory, physical and mental capacities, as well as any behavioral or emotional changes. Any admissible witness statements, official medical reports, and “before/after” comparisons from medical professionals, experts, family members, and friends are also important to establish the connection with convincing accuracy.

Let a Cumming Brain Injury Attorney Help You Recover Compensation

The common acts of driving, truck driving, bike riding, or even simple accidents like slips and falls expose you to potentially life-changing risks. Unfortunately, even if you’re driving perfectly, the negligent driver who runs a red light and T-bones your car often walks away with minor scrapes while you’re left with serious injuries like TBIs. Recovering the full amount of financial compensation for your injuries is the least you deserve. A Cumming brain injury attorney at our firm understands this and will fight for you to be sure you’re fully compensated. Contact us to schedule your free consultation.
