BRAIN & SPINAL CORD INJURY

What Does A Spinal Cord Injury or Brain Injury Case Involve?

When a person suffers a brain or a spinal cord injury as a result of the negligence or carelessness of someone else, it is important that they or their family consult a qualified, experienced attorney as soon as possible. Statutes of limitation and other laws can bar or limit recovery for such claims if too much time passes after the event that causes the injury or death. An attorney who is experienced in handling brain and spinal cord injury cases can also counsel you on what to expect during the course of the case. More important, a qualified attorney can provide advice as to what actions the victim and victim’s family should and should not take to protect the injured party’s rights and interests during the case.

Types of Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuits

There are two general types of lawsuits that can be filed in brain and spinal cord injury cases: a personal injury case or a wrongful death case. There are somewhat different items of recovery that are available in each type of case. If an injured party passes away as a result of the injury during the pendency of a case, a personal injury case will be converted into a wrongful death case.

Why Choose the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to Handle Your Brain Injury or Spinal Cord Injury Case?

Brain injury and spinal cord injury claims are extremely complex, are typically hard-fought, and require a skilled attorney who is capable of taking on highly educated doctors and experts hired by the defense. Many times it is difficult to prove whether or not a person’s health problems or physical symptoms after an injury are the result of a brain or spinal cord injury, or instead are the result of normal health or aging factors, such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, brain atrophy, or congenital abnormalities.

Briggs WinstonSymptoms of brain injury usually develop soon after the trauma. In some cases, however, an injured person will have no symptoms at first, only to develop serious symptoms hours or days later. In minor cases, a person with a head injury may have a mild headache, a lump on the head, and a bruise or a cut on the scalp. The absence of major physical symptoms, however, does not rule out a serious brain injury. Symptoms may not appear until much later, especially in cases where an injury causes fluid to build up within the brain. For this reason, a person who has experienced a brain injury should be watched closely for any sign of delayed symptoms. Brain and spinal cord injury cases usually involve the testimony of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychiatrists, orthopedic doctors, vocational rehabilitation specialists, and life care planners. The trial of such cases can be a daunting, stressful, and hard-fought experience.

“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.

“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.
Cyclist Tom Erdmanczyk, Roswell, GA
I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest.
Ed Dietzel, Atlanta, GA
I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
