Brain Injuries in Georgia
A serious accident can change life permanently in seconds. The effect of even a mild brain injury can stretch long into your future, requiring an altered life plan.
If you or a loved one suffer from brain injury brought about by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, it is important to consider seeking compensation to assist you and your family meet the challenge of a possibly permanent disability.
Pursuing Compensation for Head and Brain Injury
When considering a settlement offer or personal injury litigation, it is important to retain attorneys experienced with how Georgia law handles brain injury cases. Skilled legal counsel can analyze your case and your medical condition to determine the best avenue forward given the facts of your accident.
Henry Spiegel Milling LLP is a premier Atlanta law firm representing clients throughout Georgia suffering the devastating consequences of brain injury. We work with a team of recognized specialists in the field of brain injury to ensure your injury is correctly evaluated and potential future medical and rehabilitative costs are appropriately calculated.
Georgia head and brain lawsuits are complicated due to the type of injury and the technical knowledge required to accurately assess long-term compensation. With the help of experts, our legal team develops projections for compensation you will need in the future, including the following:
Lost wages and reduced earning capacity: People suffering brain injury are often unable to return to their job or work at the same level they formerly enjoyed. Individuals suffering traumatic brain injury generally retire from the workforce earlier than others in their age range. Given their disability, the earning potential of individuals suffering brain injury may drop dramatically, severely limiting their ability to support themselves or their family.
Medical and life care costs: The cost of long-term medical and other therapeutic expenses must be factored into a possible brain injury settlement or compensation claim. Life care costs in Georgia—including altered or assisted living housing, costs of a caregiver, and adaptive, psychological, and rehabilitative services—also must be considered.
- Pain and suffering: While lost wages, earning capacity, and medical and therapeutic expenses are economic costs, non-economic damages for pain and suffering and loss of companionship are also considered as part of a settlement offer or compensation claim for brain injury.
