Trauma to the brain, whether from a physical blow, bump, or some other serious event in which the brain is deprived of oxygen, impacts 1.7 million people in the United States annually. This may come as a surprise, but traumatic brain injuries are more common than you think.
At Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP, we realize that every minute after a traumatic brain injury or serious spinal cord injury is a fight. In addition to a lengthy recovery, you are probably facing mounting medical bills and rehabilitation costs. Yet accepting the insurance company’s first settlement offer may not provide you with the compensation you need.
You are far more likely to receive substantial compensation for ongoing care when you consult an attorney who knows how to fight your case. The Atlanta brain injury attorneys at Moraitakis & Kushel have already helped numerous accident survivors, and we’re here to help you.
Damages of Brain Injuries
The damages in a brain injury case can range from mild to significant. Signs of mild traumatic brain injuries include headaches, vomiting and nausea, ringing in the ears, difficulty balancing, and dizziness. In some cases, these symptoms do not appear for weeks after the blow to the head.
In more severe cases of traumatic brain injuries, the victim may have a headache that does not go away, repeated vomiting, inability to awaken, loss of coordination, and slurred speech.
Brain Injury Cases
The insurance company of the party or parities that played a role in your traumatic brain or spinal cord injury may try to avoid accepting legal liability. Regardless of how clear it may seem that a party is responsible for your accident, you’ll need experienced legal counsel to get the settlement or jury award you may deserve.
During your free initial consultation, we will tell you if the settlement offers are fair by taking into account the following:
- Future reconstructive surgeries
- Current and ongoing hospital bills
- Treatments and therapy
- Medical equipment
- Loss of wages and/or earning potential
- Loss of quality of life
- Pain and suffering
