THE ATLANTA PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY WHO LIMITS HIS CASES TO SERIOUS INJURY AND WRONGFUL DEATH
If you see a billboard lawyer ad or an annoying television commercial for attorneys, those firms want ALL cases --- high volume --- to be able to keep their large staffs busy. If done properly, those cases can require almost as much time as catastrophic injury claims, and many do not yield money for the injured party. OUR OFFICE DOES NOT WANT 100 CALLS A DAY on minor fender-bender auto crash cases!
If your case has crippling injury (e.g., traumatic brain injury TBI, fractured or broken bones, scars), that is usually job-ending and life-changing for families, that is a serious bodily injury case with protracted loss or impairment of the function of any body part, that our law office wants to investigate and handle for you. By our law firm having fewer cases with major injury or death involved, this permits every accident attorney associated with our firm to have a laser focus on obtaining the top financial recovery available from the at-fault parties' insurance companies and available assets.
Atlanta attorney William C. "Bubba" Head has over 43 years of litigation experience in Georgia courtrooms located in Atlanta, Savannah, Lawrenceville, Decatur, Jonesboro, Newnan, LaGrange, Tifton, Valdosta, Macon, Columbus, Dalton, Brunswick, Albany, Dalton, Marietta, Elberton, Cumming, Canton, Savannah, McDonough, and Athens GA.
Paraplegia, Quadriplegia and other Serious Bodily Injury
Mr. Head and his affiliated attorneys near me handle the following types of serious bodily injury cases in every courtroom in the State of Georgia:
Serious bodily injury to a child or adult person's bodily organ or mental faculty (like closed head trauma) can come from a broken bone (regardless of the type of fracture), frontal lobe damage to the brain, loss of function of a bodily function (e.g., bladder control), loss of hearing, loss of arm, being rendered blind, being burned by an explosion, a blast of steam, caustic chemicals, all types of scars from a skin graft, having a compression fracture, scalding water or fire, or other disabling injury such as loss of use of an arm, leg, eye or finger.
When a neck injury fracture of cervical vertebrae leaves bone fragments and the bone heals over a nerve, impingement can cause crippling, severe pain down one or both arms. Clients have explained having phantom pains after loss of a leg, when all sensation should be absent.
Plus, we can help recover any civil damages claim for a broken neck, fractured back, compound fracture, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, brain injury or wrongful death claims. Plus, any piercing injury to brain tissue from any cause usually creates a substantial risk of death or paralysis, plus a fractured skull. It is wise for a family member or caregiver to chart on a calendar the progress made (if any) from treatment, occupational therapy or nursing home rehabilitation before and after medical care begins for a patient who has suffered a closed head injury.
What Is a Wrongful Death Action?
Wrongful death is a CIVIL action specially created by the Georgia Legislature to facilitate a full and fair recovery for loss of a person's life against the at-fault party or parties. The Georgia statute identifies who can file suit and recover, which limits the right to bring the legal action.
Like with all types of civil or criminal litigation, a statute of limitations applies. In addition, once a recovery has been paid out and agreed upon as being the full and final case settlement, barriers exist to trying to reopen or expand payouts from the responsible parties. The Georgia Supreme Court has recently clarified Georgia law relating to this topic of seeking additional money.
No single accident lawyer is the best for ALL categories of serious fatality and catastrophic injury cases. Personal injury and accident cases range from breaches of premises security, medical malpractice, childbirth negligence, electrocution deaths or injuries, nursing home neglect, to slip and fall serious injury. Plus, spinal fractures, mild or moderate concussions, big rig trucking accidents, fatal motorcycle accidents, scarring from a burn injury, car accidents, wrongful death cases and everything in between.
No matter the source or cause for a permanent physical injury or mental loss of normal function from an accident, doctor malpractice, on the job injury or car accident, if another person or company caused it, you may have the right to recover the full measure of damages for that tortious injury. Our laws in Georgia provide for a cause of action against those whose careless actions or negligent misconduct (like DUI) causes harm. The company, person or business responsible will be on the hook all types of damages for your losses, which can be from lost wages, medical bills, or permanent disability.
In some cases, a government agency (e.g., the State Highway Department), or a local medical clinic or regional hospital has breached its duty of reasonable care, and you can seek to recover monetary damages. In all corners of the State of Georgia, you can be represented by our experienced lawyers near me who are affiliated with Serious Personal Injury Attorneys. Mr. Head and his law group teams up with these highly regarded legal professionals to assure collecting the full compensation available against the parties or companies at fault.
Accidents or intentional conduct (like getting drunk and driving) causing damage to a victim's brain thereby impacts every aspect of the injured party's life. Some injuries that arise from a piercing of the skull or impact to the head can cause permanent damage to the brain tissue, affecting cognitive abilities. Advances in medicine now make an MRI or CT scan commonplace around the USA, even in smaller cities.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by another driver's neglect, disregard for the safety of others, or as the result of other types of impact with a citizen that jolts or impacts his or her skull. The most common civil cases our law office sees include:
A slip and fall case, as described above, either within a business or at a public building;
A truck, SUV, van, bus or car accident
Being attacked, struck or assaulted with an object, gun or a person's hands;
A motorcycle accident, scooter crash or a bicycle accident (two-wheeled vehicles);
An object thrown or that has fallen from a high place due to another negligence;
Construction sites and roadway building crews may be the source of head trauma; and
Being knocked over or attacked by a dog or other animal.
