South Florida Law Firm Pursuing Justice for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
Because the brain is an exquisitely fragile organ, almost any kind of accident can lead to a traumatic brain injury. However, TBI is most frequently caused in motor vehicle accidents, particularly motorcycle accidents, car accidents, and truck accidents. Our attorneys have the knowledge to handle both the law and the medical science related to traumatic brain injuries at any level of severity:
- Severe Brain Injury: A severe brain injury causes drastic cognitive impairments and fully prevents the victim from functioning independently. Individuals with a severe traumatic brain injury require full-time permanent care. Severe brain injuries can eventually lead to wrongful death.
- Moderate Brain Injury: Moderate brain damage causes noticeable behavioral changes and can hinder the victim from performing job duties or socially engaging with others. Individuals with moderate TBI may be prone to socially unacceptable behaviors, depression and irrational, unpredictable outbursts of anger.
- Mild Brain Injury: A mild brain injury causes subtle changes to personality, impairment of short-term or long-term memory or consistent headaches. Because mild TBI primarily manifests itself only in subtle behavioral changes, it can be difficult to prove. However, it can make an individual unable to perform jobs that require a high level of cognitive functioning.
Our attorneys work with experts to illustrate the root medical causes of brain injury symptoms, including closed head wounds involving "shearing" or "coup contrecoup" damage as well as blunt force trauma and open head wounds.
We are dedicated to the pursuit of justice for our clients and to helping the victims of traumatic brain injury and their families prepare for their future with TBI. We provide a comprehensive array of services, including pursuit of just compensation as well as the formation of special needs trusts and other trusts to ensure your personal injury settlement can provide a stable, secure future.
