Traumatic brain injuries are a major reason for death and disability in the United States. People who experience a minor brain injury may experience temporary confusion or a severe headache. However, a serious traumatic brain injury can cause unconsciousness, amnesia, disability, coma, and even death or long-term impairment.

If you or someone you love suffered a severe traumatic brain injury due to the negligence of another driver, coworker, or medical professional, now is the time to contact a well-versed Cobb County traumatic brain injury lawyer for a case consultation. An experienced catastrophic injury attorney could handle the legal process while you focus on recovery.

What Causes a Traumatic Brain Injury?

In general, a TBI occurs when there is a sudden, severe blow to the head, which causes brain damage. When the brain is rattled against the skull, it can become bruised, nerve fibers can tear, and there can be extensive bleeding. If there is a skull fracture, a piece of bone could even penetrate the brain, causing further damage. Common incidents that can lead to a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Workplace accidents
  • Physical aggression
  • Road traffic accidents such as car, truck or pedestrian accidents

Sometimes traumatic brain injuries occur due to a true accident that no one could have prevented. Other times, they are caused by the actions or inactions of other people. When negligence causes a traumatic brain injury, a Cobb County traumatic brain injury attorney could work to receive compensation on behalf of the injured victim and their family.

Filing a Traumatic Brain Injury Case in Cobb County

Filing a legal claim is a formal way of requesting that whoever caused the accident or incident that lead to the plaintiff’s traumatic brain injury pay for the economic and non-economic damages that they have caused. Damages could include pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, past and future lost income and wages, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Many potential plaintiffs do not realize that their ability to file a lawsuit after an injury is limited. As per Georgia Code § 9-3-33, potential plaintiffs must file their case within two years of the date of their injury. An experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer in Cobb County could ensure that a victim’s case is filed on time.

If a potential plaintiff fails to file their lawsuit within the two-year deadline, they will likely never receive any monetary recovery for their injuries. Although the case could still be filed in court after the statute of limitations expires, it will more than likely be dismissed.
