Legal Counsel To Help You Recover From Traumatic Brain Injuries
Cuts and broken bones are obvious after accidents. Some of the most serious problems – traumatic brain injuries – are not always noticeable. Yet they are a leading cause of injury and death after accidents.
Almost three million people suffer traumatic brain injuries annually according to the Brain Injury Alliance. Over five million people need ongoing assistance and about 60,000 people die every year. If someone else’s negligence contributed to your brain injury or the death to someone you love in Georgia, contact our brain injury attorneys at Kenney & Medina, P.C.
Auto accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries and deaths for children and young adults. Older people suffer them in falls. When there is a sudden stop (including car accidents), the brain can continue to move forward. It hits the skull and there can be unseen bleeding and bruising.
There are warning signs that might indicate a serious brain injury. Some do not show up for days and weeks. They include:
- Difficulty speaking
- Personality change
- Vision problems
Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Be Complicated
As common as traumatic brain injuries have become, they can be hard to prove in lawsuits. Even in minor cases, there can be cognition problems and problems with daily activities. In more serious situations, there can be lifelong complications and death.
Life Changing And Horrifying Injuries

- Brain death
