Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Brain Injury Lawyer
for TBI Claims
and Other Major Injuries

Head and brain injuries are among the most common serious effects of traumatic accidents. Not only can these injuries be costly, but they can also have lasting cognitive, psychological and emotional effects. If you or a loved one is exhibiting signs of a head or brain injury after an accident, you should consult with an Atlanta brain injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Warning Signs of a Brain Injury

While the human skull is reasonably strong, the human brain is not. As a result, it is not uncommon for individuals to suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in vehicle collisions, slips and falls, and other accidents. The following are all potential signs of TBI, and anyone who is exhibiting one or more of these symptoms after an accident should receive a medical diagnosis promptly:

  • Blurred vision, impaired vision, seeing spots or seeing stars
  • Changes in personality
  • Depression or other psychological symptoms
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty maintaining balance
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Forgetfulness or memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Loss of coordination
  • Loss of sensory inputs
  • Slurred speech
  • Vertigo

About Traumatic Brain Injuries

The phrase “traumatic brain injury” is somewhat misleading as it is often assumed that these injuries are limited only to head injuries that require hospitalization. However, this is not the case. The CDC defines a traumatic brain injury as one that results in a “disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.” Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) encompass many head and neck injuries including:

  • Mild traumatic brain injuries include concussions and other injuries where you lost consciousness for 30 minutes or less.
  • Moderate traumatic brain injuries are those where you lost consciousness anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  • Severe traumatic brain injuries are marked by a loss of consciousness for 24 hours or more.

Both moderate and severe brain injuries require hospitalization and you could be facing months or years of recovery, which results in overwhelming medical expenses and often an inability to work for an extended period of time. If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should speak with the Atlanta brain injury attorneys at our firm to make sure your rights are protected. You may be able to take legal action to help pay your medical bills and compensate for your loss of function.

Additional Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic head and brain injuries can take a variety of different forms. Regardless of the type of injury you or your loved one has suffered, you should speak with an Atlanta brain injury lawyer about your legal rights. At Gilormo Injury Law, our lawyers bring decades of combined experience and a compassionate, client-first approach to helping individuals and families recover just compensation for:

Penetrating Brain Injuries (PBIs)

An injury that may be less familiar to many is known as a penetrating brain injury (PBI). As the name implies, PBIs typically happen when an object penetrates one’s head. Not to be confused with perforating brain injuries that actually go completely through the head leaving an exit wound, penetrating brain injuries can be caused by various types of objects being thrown at low or high speeds (such as someone hurling a knife at your head), and can result in permanent disability or even death. 

Anoxic Brain Injuries (ABIs)

Anoxic brain injuries can happen when the brain does not receive an appropriate amount of oxygen for four minutes or more. Essentially, brain cells start to die during that period and after five minutes, permanent anoxic brain injury can occur. There are four kinds of anoxia that can cause serious damage to the brain: anemic (stemming from an acute hemorrhage or chronic anemia), toxic (which can stem from carbon monoxide poisoning), stagnant (stemming from strokes, cardiac arrest, cardiac arrhythmia, etc.) and anoxic anoxia (which can take place at high altitudes). 

The physical and cognitive issues that an individual may experience from ABIs include movement disorders, an inability to do normal tasks, a lack of coordination, loss of the ability to focus (visually), short-term memory loss and difficulty choosing words, among others.
