We’re Powerful Advocates For Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors
A catastrophic injury like a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change a person’s life forever. Because of an accident caused by another person’s carelessness, survivors may need to contend with astronomical medical bills, a lengthy and grueling recovery process and severe physical pain and emotional injuries.
When families in Georgia are affected by TBIs, the team at Hawk Law Firm, helps them forge a path toward recovery. Jon Hawk has more than 25 years of experience advocating for survivors of catastrophic injuries, during which he has established a formidable reputation and a successful track record.
How Do TBIs Happen?
TBIs usually result from a significant physical force, like a blow or jolt, being applied to a person’s head or body. TBIs can also happen when foreign objects pass through a person’s skull and into their brain.
How TBIs happen varies, but significant contributing events and activities include:
- Car accidents
- Violent attacks
- Work accidents
Explosions and other dangers in active combat situations also cause TBIs.
TBIs Have a Lasting Physical And Emotional Impact
The immediate cost of medical intervention is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to TBI recovery. These expenses could be a constant fixture in the lives of survivors and their families for years afterward. Medical treatment could interfere with a person’s ability to go to school, work or do the things they enjoy. If the injury is especially severe, they may never fully recover and be unable to do what they once aspired to. A person’s personality can change after a TBI; their relationships can fall apart, and they can develop mental illnesses like depression and anxiety.
It’s impossible to assign a dollar amount to the actual cost of a TBI. Still, when seeking compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, it’s essential to consider all of the above. We help TBI survivors and their families understand the full value of their cases and aggressively pursue the support they need for their recovery and the compensation they deserve for what they’ve been through.
