Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are devastating injuries that are often a result of a serious motor vehicle accident. Traumatic brain injuries can be permanent, although victims could recover some of their lost capacity through rehabilitation and other medical procedures depending on the specific injury. When the victim’s nuero-pathways are damaged or destroyed, the victim may suffer paralysis, loss of brain function, loss of speaking ability, and they are often unable to function independently and must rely on others to satisfy some of life’s most basic functions.
Truck accidents often lead to traumatic brain injuries due to the extreme forces created in a violent crash. The weight of the truck may exceed the weight of a passenger car by 20 to 30 times. Therefore, an ordinary passenger car provides little protection, even with airbags and seatbelts, from the devastating forces generated by a truck when colliding with another passenger vehicle.
Determining who is at fault for a traumatic brain injury, and ascertaining the value of the loss is exceedingly difficult in truck accidents, which is why it’s important to contact experienced injury attorneys to help you navigate the legal system. Testimony from medical experts, financial experts, and even accident reconstruction experts may be necessary in some cases to demonstrate the nature of the victim’s injuries, how the injuries happened, who is to blame for the accident that caused the injury, and how the victim’s financial well-being will be affected by the traumatic brain injury. Typical damages in a Georgia personal injury cases include lost wages, compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and more. However, compensation for a traumatic brain injury sustained in a truck accident, for example, could also include future medical expenses, cost of continued care for the victim, and loss of future income.
