Atlanta Brain Injury Lawyer
The human brain is extraordinary. It is a nerve center that serves as “mission control” for the entire human body. The brain plays an important role in everything we do and in defining who we are as individuals. Fortunately, the brain is well protected from physical trauma by the skull and from potentially toxic substances by a protective membrane referred to as the “blood-brain barrier.” Yet, the brain is still vulnerable and thousands of people each year suffer debilitating brain damage.
Our Atlanta, Georgia brain injury lawyers know that a brain injury can come from a variety of harmful mechanisms including, among others:
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Anoxic brain damage (total deprivation of oxygen)
- Hypoxic brain damage (partial deprivation of oxygen)
- Untreated infection
- Burst aneurysm
- Traumatic brain injury or TBI (physical trauma such as that sustained from a fall, car, or truck accident.)
Brain injuries, regardless of the cause, can be physically, emotionally, and financially crippling. These terrible injuries can dramatically impair a person’s ability to function and enjoy life. When a brain injury affects a person and family due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others – whether from a motor vehicle accident, a fall, medical malpractice, a dangerous product, a near-drowning in an unsafe pool, or from some other harmful mechanism – the legal system may allow for just and substantial compensation.
