How Will Your Lawyers Help Me Receive Compensation?
Anyone can file a claim for compensation on their own, but that’s not really wise. There are many benefits you can get from retaining a lawyer to help you during this challenging time:
- Filing your claim correctly and at the best time possible.
- Gathering information and evidence to build a strong case for your claim.
- Talking to witnesses and consulting with experts to help validate your claim.
- Representing your best interests with other parties and handling all communications properly.
- Representing you during negotiations and fighting on your behalf in court.
When it comes to filing a claim or negotiating for a settlement, the more legal knowledge you have, the better. If you lack the legal knowledge or expertise to file a claim or fight for a settlement, you run the risk of losing out on compensation before you’ve even begun to make your terms clear.
With one of our traumatic brain injury attorneys representing you, you don’t have to quickly become an expert on the complexities of personal injury law. Instead, you can focus on healing and recovering from your injuries.

How Long do I Have to File My Claim?
According to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33, you have two years to file your claim. Two years can pass very fast, and the longer you wait, the harder it becomes to build a strong case. This is because evidence can get lost or deteriorate, and any witnesses may forget what happened during your accident.
Our attorneys will assist you in filing at the right time. You should only file after you’ve completed as much medical treatment as possible and you have all of the evidence you need. Filing any earlier means you risk settling too early, so any damages down the line won’t get covered.
What Damages Can I Get Compensated?
You can compensate for virtually any damage that was a direct result of your traumatic brain injury accident. So long as you can show that you wouldn’t have had these damages if your accident and the resulting injuries didn’t cause them, then you can factor them into your settlement. Our attorneys can help you recover compensation for all of your damages in addition to the most common ones.
Going to the hospital for any ailment, regardless if it’s for traumatic brain injury, is expensive. With or without insurance, you can look at thousands of dollars of debt for surgeries, scans, tests, treatment, and prescriptions combined. The price continues to skyrocket when you start to include therapy, psychological services, medical equipment for assisted living, and much more.
Medical treatment is by far the most commonly compensated damage in any personal injury case. Our lawyers will ensure that every penny gets accounted for and that you get all of your medical damages reimbursed or covered.
A traumatic brain injury can put you out of work temporarily or permanently. Regardless of the issue, you can end up incurring large amounts of lost wages. You weren’t responsible for your traumatic brain injury accident, so you shouldn’t have to eat the costs of missing out on the wages you would’ve been earning otherwise.
We can help you calculate all of the wages you missed and would have earned due to your traumatic brain injury.
Non-economic damages commonly refer to damages outside of a standard fixed value. These damages usually include things like pain and suffering or loss of consortium. They’re damages that require further and more detailed calculation since they vary highly between cases.
Whatever anguish you’re feeling, we know that money won’t be able to cure instantly. Our hope is to get you the compensation you need for your non-economic damages so you can use it to move forward with your life and set yourself right on the path to recovery.
