One of the more severe types of injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash in Georgia is a brain injury. A brain injury can have lifelong consequences or even result in death.

Treatment of a brain injury will depend on the extent of damage. Critical immediate types of treatment include relieving any pressure, maintaining blood flow, removing blood clots and stopping any internal bleeding.

Once a patient is stabilized, a doctor will be able to determine the next steps for treatment, including medication to prevent seizures or decrease fluid in the body so the brain doesn't swell.

Sometimes treatment includes barbiturates, which can put an individual into a coma.
This is typically done when there is a lot of pressure in the brain.

A ventriculostomy may be performed in order to drain cerebrospinal fluid from the brain. If breathing becomes difficult, an individual may be placed on a ventilator.

Surgery may also be necessary.
All of these treatments are expensive and may leave an individual unable to work and function for a long period of time.

You may be entitled to receive compensation for damages related to your brain injury if someone else's negligence led to a motorcycle crash in Georgia. An Atlanta personal injury lawyer can advise you of your legal rights.
