Brain Injuries

Personal Injury Attorneys in Tallahassee & Orlando, FL

Thanks to increased media coverage and a recent major motion picture, people are beginning to understand the disastrous effects of head injuries. Whether it's repeated head trauma or one concussion, the damage can be devastating. Not every attorney understands how to recognize and properly prosecute these complex, difficult-to-prove cases. Not every doctor is adept at diagnosing and treating concussions. Serious injuries need serious attorneys. Call our experienced attorneys and make sure your case gets the evaluation it deserves.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a serious health problem in the United States. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were 2.5 million visits to the emergency department, hospitalizations, or deaths related to traumatic brain injuries in the United States in 2010.

Traumatic brain injuries can be physically damaging and can result in death or permanent disability in severe cases. Additionally, traumatic brain injuries are often emotionally distressing and financially debilitating.

If you’ve experienced a traumatic brain injury due to the actions or negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as the cost of any medical bills and other costs or losses you may have incurred.

Contact our Tallahassee brain injury attorneys at (850) 583-9409 today. We can help.

Causes & Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The CDC points to the following as the leading causes of TBI:

  • Falls (40.5%);
  • Struck by/against (15.5%);
  • Motor vehicle accidents (14.3%);
  • Assaults (10.7%); and
  • Unknown/other (19.0%).

Following an accident, victims should seek medical evaluation for proper diagnosis. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the symptoms of a TBI include:

  • Loss of consciousness;
  • Headache;
  • Confusion;
  • Lightheadedness;
  • Dizziness;
  • Blurred vision or tired eyes;
  • Ringing in the ears;
  • Bad taste in the mouth;
  • Change in sleep patterns;
  • Behavioral or mood changes; and
  • Difficulty with memory or concentration.

Accident victims who suffer a blow to the head, fall, or other accident that results in head trauma should seek medical attention immediately. Additionally, if you have been the victim of a TBI, act quickly to recover compensation.

You Have No Time to Waste

If you’re the victim of a TBI and have experienced adverse effects as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. If someone else caused your traumatic brain injury — such as an assault, motor vehicle accident, or failure to maintain a safe property — retain a Tallahassee injury lawyer for counsel immediately.

In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases founded upon negligence is four years after the accident happened. Therefore, it is imperative that you act now.
