If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury because of another party’s negligence, it may be possible to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Speak with one of the experienced personal injury lawyers at Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, to learn how we may help you and your family during this difficult time.
