Brain And Spinal Cord Injuries May Permanently Change Your Life
Serious accidents that damage your brain or spinal column can be life-changing. Sometimes, the full extent of your injuries may not be known at the time of the accident. Symptoms may appear days or even weeks later.
If you or a loved one has suffered a head or back injury on the job, you should consult with an experienced Jonesboro brain injury lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. At Skibiel Law, we represent injured workers and their families throughout the Atlanta metro area with workers’ compensation claims.
Protecting Your Immediate And Future Needs
Proving brain damage or nerve damage can sometimes be difficult, and many insurance companies will attempt to minimize your claim if symptoms are not readily apparent. We have experience handling a variety of catastrophic injuries. We will fully investigate your claim to ensure you receive appropriate care, which may include medical treatment, attendant care, transportation, and in some cases housing or housing modifications. Our experience includes handling brain injuries and spine injuries involving:
- Cognitive difficulties or impaired memory
- Impaired speech
- Coordination issues
Additionally, brain and spinal cord injuries are often very painful and could involve multiple surgeries, pain management therapy and other long-term rehabilitation. We will seek full compensation for all of your immediate and future medical needs through aggressive negotiation or litigation, if necessary.
Because you only have a limited time to file a workers’ compensation claim, it is important to notify your employer immediately following an accident, even if you don’t think your injuries are that serious. Doing so could protect your right to claim income benefits and medical benefits should your injury become apparent later down the road.
