Traumatic Brain and Spinal Injury Attorney in Marietta, GA Fights for Your Compensation
Compassionate injury lawyers on your side
Dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury can become a full-time job, especially if you do not have the money for specialized medical care or physical therapy. If your injury was caused by another party’s negligence, recklessness, or malicious act, you or your loved ones may have a personal injury case in which you could win compensation for medical bills, lost wages, loss of consortium, and, in the most difficult cases, wrongful death. At the Law Offices of Melvin S. Nash, we know how to fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
Causes of brain and spinal injuries
There are many ways you can injure your head or spine. As attorneys, we have seen hundreds of serious brain and spinal cord injuries, and most were caused by the following types of incidents:
- Vehicle collisions
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Sports-related injuries
- Slip and fall incidents
- Falling objects
- Blunt force trauma
This is not an exclusive list. If your loved one’s spine or brain injury was caused by another type of negligent act, consult a lawyer to discuss your case.
Severity of injuries
Most traumatic brain injuries and spinal injuries completely change the quality of life for those who sustain them. While some injuries are minor and victims make a full recovery, most of these injuries take away functionality, independence, and sometimes even the ability to clothe, clean and feed yourself.
Whiplash — Although whiplash is difficult to diagnose and prove, it is a very real injury that occurs when the head suddenly jolts forward and backwards, stressing the muscles and tendons around the base of the skull and in the neck. The soft-tissue damage is difficult to see on an MRI, but it is still a very real injury common to motor vehicle accidents that can lead to headaches, back problems, and insomnia.
Spinal cord injuries — Damage to the spinal cord, the long cord of nerves that control sensation and motion throughout the body, can result in paralysis such as paraplegia and quadriplegia. As part of your legal case, you will need extensive documentation from your doctor, but symptoms of spinal injury include loss of sensation, loss of bladder and bowel control, pain, spasms, difficulty breathing, and sharp back pain.
Concussions and post-concussive disorder — As we see in the news month after month, repeated head injuries, multiple concussions and untreated concussions can have profound effects on a person’s life. Learn the signs of concussion so that you can recognize it in your loved ones.
Traumatic brain injury — The brain is a delicate structure that controls everything about us. Open head wounds and closed head trauma affect the way we see and interpret the world and the way we behave toward others. Such injuries can also affect the way we manage everyday tasks.
