“$250 million in settlements and verdicts in Florida”
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating for victims as well as their loved ones. This year alone, an estimated 1.5 million Americans will suffer from TBI, and many of them will never fully recover from their injuries. For some victims of TBI it can take years of extensive therapy to live a normal life after such devastating injuries. TBI is often the result of the carelessness or negligent actions of others. Florida victims of TBI can rely on the brain injury attorneys at the Get Smart Legal to thoroughly investigate their injuries to determine who was at fault and pursue fair compensation for their pain and suffering. Contact our Florida law firm to speak to our brain injury lawyers about your case today.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
A TBI is the result of violent shaking or impact to the head that causes the brain to hit the skull or causes the skull to break, resulting in damage to the brain. Mild and serious forms of TBI have differing symptoms. A person who is suffering from a traumatic head or brain injury may remain fully alert and conscious and have only a slight headache that may increase over time. At our Florida firm, our brain injury lawyers have experience in handling a variety of brain injury cases, including some in which the symptoms of a TBI are not apparent until much later following an accident.
Some of the symptoms experienced following a traumatic brain injury include but are not limited to:
- Dizziness and problems with balance
- Loss of consciousness
- Ringing in the ears or changes in hearing ability
- Dilated or unequal sized pupils
- Vision changes, such as blurred vision, loss of eye movement, or sensitivity to bright light
- Numbness or tingling
- Slurred speech and difficulty speaking and swallowing
- Memory problems and poor attention span
- Slow pulse and slow breathing rate
- Increase in blood pressure
- Spinal fluid coming out of the ears or nose
For TBI victims in Florida, our brain injury attorneys use their resources and experience to review the circumstances that led to their injuries and pursue fair monetary compensation.
Causes of Traumatic Head and Brain Injury
Serious head and brain injuries are often the result of an auto or motorcycle accident or trucking accident, but can also be caused by sporting accidents, violence, or a bad slip and fall accident. Also, when an object traveling at an increased rate of speed hits the skull, it is likely that a TBI has occurred. A TBI also occurs when an object pierces the skull and comes into contact with brain tissue.
The effects of traumatic head and brain injuries can be both emotionally and financially draining to families who have a loved one who has been injured. A TBI is a very serious and debilitating condition, and a full and healthy recovery can take years. Third parties are not only frequently involved in traumatic brain injuries but can oftentimes be to blame. At our Miami, Florida law offices, our brain injury lawyers are committed to helping victims and families get the compensation and care they need.
