Brain Injury

Your Catastrophic Injury
Case Is Our Top Priority.

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 as vulnerable as human life itself and thousands of people each year suffer debilitating brain damage.

Our Atlanta, Georgia brain injury lawyer knows that a brain injury can come from a variety of harmful mechanisms including, among others, exposure to toxic substances, total deprivation of oxygen (“anoxic brain damage”), partial deprivation of oxygen (“hypoxic brain damage”), untreated infection, stroke, tumor, burst aneurysm or physical trauma (“traumatic brain injury” or “TBI”) 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 the painful effects of brain damage on a person and family are suffered 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.

Ponton Law often hires a life care planner to assist in the preparation of a life care plan.  A life care plan is a summary of current and future needs with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs.  A life care plan should always include the following:

  1. Records Review;
  2. Projections;
  3. Diagnostic Testing;
  4. Medical Equipment and mobility;
  5. Medications;
  6. Home or facility care needs;
  7. Transportation needs;
  8. Home furnishings;
  9. Vocation needs;
  10. Health maintenance services.

Common Types of Late Appearing Car Accident Injuries

Immediately after a car crash, victims generally have an idea of the injuries they sustained. That could lead them to settle their claim fast, in hopes of getting compensation, so they can move on with their lives. However, some injuries resulting from a car accident do not reveal themselves until a few weeks or months later. That could potentially delay healing and hit one with unexpected medical expenses. The person might have to miss some time from work. Moreover, if the victim had already settled their case, they might be limited in pursuing extra compensation to cover the new expenses. They’ll usually be unable to recover compensation for the additional medical costs or lost earnings. Here are the most common types of late appearing car accident injuries: 1.      Concussion At times, the collision’s impact can jolt a victim’s body and cause them to violently hit their head on…
