Our brains are incredibly crucial for daily functioning, and impairments can be devastating. A traumatic brain injury can result from a fall, blow the head, oxygen deprivation, or a variety of other sudden accidents.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury that you believe was caused intentionally, or by negligence or malpractice, it may be beneficial to contact a Gwinnett County traumatic brain injury lawyer. An experienced catastrophic injury attorney could work to build a strong case for a personal injury claim.

Medical Consequences of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Some signs of a traumatic brain injury may not appear for weeks, so it may be important to monitor persons who have fallen or endured a blow to the head. Some, but not all, people who have received a traumatic brain injury might experience the following:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sleeping longer than usual
  • Imbalance
  • Confusion or combativeness

Individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury may have long-term problems with speech, hearing, and vision. Moreover, coordination and balance may be negatively impacted.

Sufferers may also have trouble with thinking and learning or with regulating their emotions. Financial compensation for learning disabilities or changes in behavior may be possible with the help of a seasoned lawyer and the testimony of expert medical witnesses.

Youth Concussion Laws

Sports are a particularly common cause for traumatic brain injuries. All 50 states have Return to Play guidelines that regulate how high school coaches and trainers should handle a student athlete’s brain injury. Gwinnett County’s Return to Play laws are administered by the Georgia Department of Public Health and apply to children and young adults ages seven through 19.

The details of the Return to Play Act are outlined in subparts of O.G.A. §20-2-324.1 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated. The rules apply to schools, both public and private, as well as youth sports organizations. Parents who believe their young athlete may have experienced a concussion might consider speaking with a traumatic brain injury attorney in the Peachtree Corners area.

Gwinnett County Brain Injury Trust Fund

Individuals with a traumatic brain injury who have exhausted their funds may apply to the state’s Brain and Spinal Injury Trust Fund Commission. If qualified, persons may receive a grant to help defray the costs of the traumatic brain injury.

Some of the forms of assistance that may be available to Georgia residents with a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Medical and rehabilitative care
  • Transportation
  • Assistive technology
  • Home access modifications
  • Personal support services
  • Durable medical equipment

For more information, contact a knowledgeable traumatic brain injury lawyer in Gwinnett County.
