I am Patrick Flynn, a personal injury attorney dedicated to helping victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in Albany, Georgia. With extensive personal injury experience in both state and federal courts, I am ready to represent you, no matter how complex your case is. You will work directly with me, not a paralegal or junior associate, because I always make myself accessible by phone and email. I use expert witnesses, eyewitnesses and other evidence to build a compelling case for maximum recovery. My excellent track record of success for TBI victims speaks to my dedication and effectiveness.

The Danger Of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries often result from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. They can occur during car accidents, medical malpractice cases or other preventable incidents. TBIs can range from mild to severe. Mild TBIs might temporarily affect your brain cells. However, according to the Mayo Clinic, more serious TBIs can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain. Such high severity injuries can lead to long-term complications or even death.

The Physical Effects

TBIs can cause various physical complications, including:

  • Seizures: Some people develop seizures after a TBI, which may start immediately or not appear for years.
  • Fluid buildup: Cerebrospinal fluid can accumulate in the brain, causing increased pressure and swelling.
  • Infections: Skull fractures or penetrating wounds can allow bacteria to enter the brain, leading to infections like meningitis.
  • Blood vessel damage: Damaged blood vessels in the brain can cause strokes or blood clots.
  • Headaches: Frequent headaches are common and can last for several months.
  • Vertigo: Many people experience dizziness following a TBI.

Cognitive And Emotional Complications

TBIs can also lead to cognitive, behavioral and emotional changes. You may experience:

  • Memory and learning difficulties
  • Problems with reasoning, judgment and attention
  • Challenges with problem-solving, multitasking and decision-making
  • Communication issues, including difficulty understanding or organizing thoughts
  • Behavioral changes such as difficulty with self-control, a sudden tendency toward risky behavior and social challenges
  • Emotional changes like depression, anxiety, mood swings and irritability

Depending on how severe and treatable they are, these symptoms can make it impossible to return to work or care for your family. The financial and emotional toll can be overwhelming. A personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party can help you recover compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
