Traumatic Brain Injury
Atlanta Brain Injury Attorney
The brain lies at the very core of what makes us human. Healthy brains handle the vast majority of system-level physical and mental tasks in the body, from processing emotions to storing memories to directing your limbs and allowing for cognition itself. Traumatic brain injuries suffered in an accident can therefore lead to an enormous range of impairments and other losses for which the plaintiff must be adequately compensated.
Founding Attorney Walter Gabriel has worked as both a prosecutor and as a plaintiff’s-side injury attorney, which has granted him a comprehensive perspective of personal injury litigation and how to effectively navigate such disputes so as to secure maximum compensation for clients who are faced with substantial losses, as in traumatic brain injury cases. Contact our firm today to learn more about how we can help.
Symptoms Associated with Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury can occur in any accident scenario in which the forces involved are impactful enough to cause trauma. Third-party violence, recreational sports and other physical activities, slip-and-fall accidents, motor vehicle accidents, product defects, and more — all can give rise to a serious traumatic brain injury.
Not all traumatic brain injuries are the same, however. Symptoms experienced by the victim may vary wildly depending on the circumstances, and they may include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- Loss of consciousness
- Persistent headaches
- Motor impairments
- Sensory changes (i.e., auditory, olfactory, and visual system impairments)
- Speech impairments
Like other catastrophic injuries, the impairments associated with a traumatic brain injury can be substantial and life-altering. Oftentimes, those who experience traumatic brain injuries cannot return to work in the same career, and they may have difficulty reintegrating into their familiar old lifestyle and relationships.
At the Law Firm of Walter Gabriel, LLC, we understand just how important it is to help our clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible, given their losses. Failure to secure sufficient damages could lead to a mountain of debt and overwhelming financial, physical, and emotional strain on both the plaintiff and their family.
