Traumatic Head Injury

Nothing can throw your family’s life into a tailspin quite like being involved in a severe accident, especially if a serious or traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or head injury is involved. You may know, based on seeing and hearing lots of auto accident personal injury attorney commercials over the years, that finding a full-service personal injury law firm may be in your family’s best interest.

But how do you go about deciding which one is right for your case? And what should you expect them to do for you?

A Full-Service Law Firm Should Do More Than Just Fight for You in Court

If you or a loved one has recently suffered a severe injury, such as a traumatic brain injury or head injury, you likely have a lot of logistical hurdles to face. Money can quickly get tight in situations like these, where medical, rehabilitation and ancillary costs are going sky-high, and your household may not have a reliable, steady income due to the injury. Most people who suffer catastrophic injuries can’t return to work right away, and in some cases may never be able to return to their job.

Many law firms have partnerships with medical professionals or specialty financing that can help families pay for expensive treatments, especially if those life or mobility-saving treatments aren’t covered by their insurance.

They can also provide a wealth of resources and advice during a time when your family would most benefit from the experience and support of professionals who have helped other families with the same challenges you’re facing.

Attorney Liens and Letters of Protection

If you or a loved one have suffered a severe, catastrophic injury, you want to make sure you’re receiving the best possible care that’s going to give you the highest chance of a full recovery and maximize your mobility, especially if severe musculoskeletal or brain injuries were suffered.

Unfortunately, sometimes the best, most advanced care, treatment methods and providers may not be covered by your insurance or in your network. Some of the best orthopedic surgeons in the state of Georgia accept what are known as attorney liens or letters of protection.

These both essentially accomplish the same thing – it’s an agreement that the orthopedic surgeons will perform advanced diagnostics and provide the latest and best treatments possible today and wait until your case has been

settled to receive payment. The lien or letter is like a contract that guarantees to the doctor that they will be paid for their treatments out of the compensation you receive once your case has been concluded.

Not every orthopedic surgeon will accept an attorney lien or letter of protection and those that do may not accept them from just any attorney. If you do find yourself in a situation where your loved one needs the best orthopedic care possible, like for a severe spinal cord injury, and your insurance isn’t going to cover it, you should contact a highly rated orthopedic specialists and reputable full-service personal injury law firm to find out how the process works.

Fighting for All the Compensation You Need

The total cost of a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or head injury can be astronomical. Although the costs of initial emergency treatment, oftentimes requiring expensive neurosurgeries, can be extraordinarily high, those costs have the potential to pale in comparison to other long-term future costs. This is especially true if the injured party is the primary earner or caregiver for a household. A catastrophic injury could prevent them from continuing to earn a living or caring for children, both of which can leave families in dire financial straits.

There are also many costs that accompany a lifelong disability, like in-home nursing or caregivers, home accessibility modifications, mobility equipment like wheelchairs, specialized vehicles and lifts and many other additional health care expenses you would never have needed to worry about if the accident had not occurred.

It’s hugely important for families in these situations to receive adequate compensation to pay for medical expenses, make up for current and future lost wages and afford the many additional costs they will incur in the future due to the catastrophic injury.

Skilled, experienced personal injury law firms familiar with traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries will be able to work with medical specialists and other professionals to develop a realistic estimate that takes into account all these factors. They will also be able to build a strong case that uses accurate and compelling evidence to clearly show how a negligent party’s actions caused the catastrophic injury that led to all these costs.

Making a strong case grounded in evidence and developed through in-depth investigation is fundamentally the most important thing a full-service personal injury law firm can do for its clients. Their ultimate goal in every case is to get each client the compensation they need to recover and move on with their lives.
