Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

Injuries to the brain are often difficult to diagnose and devastating to the victim. Sometimes, multiple tests and scans are necessary before the problem is properly identified.

If you have reason to believe that you or someone you know has been the victim of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused in a workplace accident, you should contact an Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney immediately.

You deserve the best and most advanced care. Securing the compensatory payout you deserve may go a long way toward helping you receive the treatment you need to recover.

Benefits that You Could Recover

Georgia state law entitles victims of “severe brain or closed head injuries” to compensatory benefits. Georgia statute O.C.G.A. § 34-9-200.1 defines “catastrophic” head injuries that are entitled to workers’ compensation as evidenced by the following:

  • Severe sensory or motor disturbances

  • Severe communication disturbances

  • Severe complex integrated disturbances of cerebral function

  • Severe disturbances of consciousness

  • Severe episodic neurological disorders

  • Other conditions at least as severe in nature as any condition listed above
