Car Accidents and Other Incidents in Roswell Can Lead to Serious Brain Injuries
The population in the Roswell area grew significantly over the last 30 years. This means that Roswell’s roads are more congested than ever.
Also, the city lies at an important crossroads in Fulton County. The five state routes that connect to the city, including SR 400, are a source of heavy use. This means drivers may face traffic hazards while casually going about their lives.
City planners and leaders acknowledge that the area’s roads are overburdened, and several plans are in place to improve insufficient intersections and other dangerous corridors in the future, such as:
- Pine Grove Road and Magnolia Street intersections
- Riverside Road intersections
- Cox Road intersection
- Grimes Bridge Road, Dogwood Road, and Old Dogwood Road intersections
Crashes at intersections and high-speed roads can cause devastating accidents and brain injuries. Car accidents aren’t the only sources of TBIs in Roswell, however.
Whether you suffered harm in a collision, fall, or another negligence-related incident, you could recover compensation. Our attorneys have experience in Roswell and can use our resources to build the strongest possible case.
Brain Injuries Can Cause Serious Suffering for Injured Claimants
A traumatic brain injury can upend a victim’s life. As Mayo Clinic notes, your injuries could affect much of your body, from your emotions and personality to your ability to speak, think clearly, and move your facial muscles. While therapy can help some victims recover some of their previous functions, for many, life after a TBI is never the same.
On top of it all, you could suffer from serious pain after the initial injury. Some victims will have headaches and brain swelling immediately after getting hurt. Others will have to deal with long-term depression and other emotional consequences after a TBI.
You don’t have to deal with these costs and challenges on your own. If someone else is liable for the accident that led to your TBI, you could seek compensation.
Recovering Compensation Through a Personal Injury Case
Our attorneys have experience representing traumatic brain injury victims. We know that victims in these cases can face substantial damages. We can fight to recover losses such as:
You could have medical costs stemming from:
- Emergency care
- Ambulance services
- Visits to a doctor
- Diagnostic testing
- Physical therapy and other rehabilitative services
- Assistive devices, such as wheelchairs
After a TBI, you could find yourself paying medical bills for years after the initial injury. Our team can fight to include past, present, and future expected bills in your claim or lawsuit.
A serious injury can have a major impact on your earnings. A TBI could leave you unable to work and earn income. Some people cannot work for months or years after suffering TBIs. Others never return to work.
Your settlement or judgment should account for any lost earnings. Recoverable employment-related losses can include lost tips, bonuses, wages, income, and “side gigs.”
Some losses are not financial, but they still have a big effect on your life. You could seek compensation for your pain and suffering, mental anguish, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), scarring and disfigurement, and other intangible losses.

How a Lawyer From Our Team Can Handle Your TBI Injury Case
When you hire a lawyer from Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group, you hand off your case’s burdens to us. Our attorney can manage everything your case requires, including:
Managing All Relevant Communications
Managing communications with multiple parties after getting hurt can overwhelm you. Our team can send and answer all necessary communications relevant to your case, from insurance adjusters to witnesses. This way, you can focus on your well-being instead of managing a complicated legal case.
Investigating Your Case and Gathering Evidence
Every injury case requires strong evidence. Essentially, we need to show that the liable party was directly responsible for causing your injury, and you suffered damages.
While this may sound straightforward, gathering sufficient evidence to make your case—and get the compensation you deserve—generally requires a great deal of preparation, documents, and persuasion.
Our team can support your case by finding and using the following information:
- Your medical records
- Statements from your doctor
- Expert witness testimony
- Police reports
- Surveillance camera footage
- Black box data
- Photos and videos
- Pay stubs or statements from your employer
Any piece of information you have regarding your case could prove your right to damages.
Another crucial element of our job is determining who is legally responsible for your accident and injuries. Again, this may seem clear initially. After all, if a truck driver hit you, it may seem as though the driver is responsible. However, this is not always the case.
For one thing, an employer could hold liability for an employee’s actions when they cause your accident—such as when a truck driver hits you. In this situation, we could hold the trucking company liable and pursue your recovery through a corporate insurance policy.
You must bring your case against the appropriate liable party. We have the experience to know who was responsible for your losses and can hold them accountable.
Handling the Legal Process
We handle the legal process for you, from your case’s day-to-day tasks to negotiating a settlement.
Often, we can seek fair compensation for our clients through out-of-court settlements. However, there are situations where we may file a lawsuit immediately or after attempting negotiations. We may do this if the other party doesn’t offer fair compensation, for example.
If we go to trial, we can take care of all the details related to litigation, including preparing court paperwork and cross-examining witnesses.
We Can Help if These Types of Accidents Led to Your Brain Injury
Several accidents can result in brain injuries, such as:
- Car accidents

Frequently Asked Questions in Roswell Brain Injury Cases
We understand that you may have many questions about bringing a personal injury case. Our team is ready to explain all you need to know, including:
What Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer?
You don’t have to pay anything upfront to hire a lawyer from our team. We work based on contingency fees, which means that our fees are contingent upon your case’s results.
Our payment comes out of any settlement or award we win for you. With this structure, you don't have to take on any financial risk to pursue damages.
Is There a Deadline to Bring an Injury Case?
Yes, there is a deadline to file a lawsuit after another party causes your injury. In general, injury victims have two years to pursue compensation via litigation.
This may seem like a long time, but it can pass quickly when preparing for a lawsuit. We recommend that you get started on your case as soon as possible. In doing so, you can also give your legal team more time to gather time-sensitive evidence, such as witness statements.
Other filing deadlines could apply to you, depending on the unique details of your case. Our attorneys can explain more about what you can expect.
What Should I Do After an Injury Accident?
After you're injured in an accident, to protect your well-being and case's potential:
- Get medical attention promptly. One of the most important things you can do immediately after an accident is to get medical care. You can then begin any necessary treatments recommended by a doctor. If you wait too long to see a doctor, you could risk your case’s outcome. Insurance companies will often look to your medical records to dispute your case. They could also argue that you made your injuries worse by neglecting treatment.
- Hang onto important evidence. If you took down eyewitnesses’ contact information or have receipts for out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident, these details could support your case.
- Decline to offer a recorded statement. The other party’s insurance company may call you and ask for a recorded comment about the accident. We don’t recommend that you do this. Often, this is a strategy to use your words against you and limit the value of your potential settlement or award.
- Get a free case review. Our team offers free case reviews. During your call, you can learn more about the claims process and other financial recovery avenues. It can help to have all the information before making major decisions, such as accepting a settlement offer.
- Limit what you share online. Sharing information about your brain injury on social media could give the claims adjuster more information to contest your case. While your case unfolds, you shouldn’t share public information about your condition.
