Welcome to Scholle Law’s Georgia brain injury blog. We launched this blog to provide medical and law-related information about brain injuries in adults and children. Our mission with this blog, as with our Atlanta Injury blog, is to inform our readers about new developments and treatments for brain injuries; help those injured in an accident caused by another person or entity to learn how and where they can get medical and legal guidance; and, provide information that is relevant and useful to all.
This is an area of particular concern for us as personal injury lawyers. Brain injuries often involve long term care for the victim. If a person who has suffered a brain injury does not get help early, this can result in a worsened long term horizon for the injured person. We hope to help our readers learn about these injuries, which range from mild to severe, so that the right help is sought early for the best outcomes.
In the past, we have touched on this area of the law and medicine. We have written about mild traumatic brain injuries that can be suffered after an auto accident or sports injury. These injuries can be overlooked since their symptoms might seem to be something else, like chronic headache or memory loss. But often these symptoms, which are not recognized as brain injury, are in fact just that. We have also written about the new research that is bringing hope to many who have suffered injuries and need continuing support. This is an exciting area, because research is moving quickly in this field. It is also very important because these injuries can be so significant and life-changing that research resulting in new treatment methods can make an enormous difference in the lives of so many.
