When innocent victims and their families are burdened with the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of a brain injury, they trust our Florida brain injury lawyers to help them recover the compensation they deserve and depend upon.
Common Brain Injury Causes and Consequences
Sudden trauma to the head can cause a brain injury in mere moments, and many brain injury victims face a lifetime of diminished ability and suffering. Amongst the most common causes of brain injuries upon which our Florida lawyers have built strong claims are:
- Auto accidents
- Slips and falls
- Swimming pool accidents and drownings
- Boating accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction zone accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Sports injuries
There are a number of different types of brain injuries. A concussion is caused when a person suffers a blow to the head, and may lead to a brain contusion (bruising), nerve damage, or internal bleeding. When severe force causes the brain to move within the skull, it is known as a diffuse axonal brain injury. Many individuals who suffer these types of injuries never regain consciousness. A number of our athlete clients have suffered recurrent traumatic brain injuries, which result from a new trauma to the brain when a previous brain injury has not yet healed. These individuals may face a lifetime of impaired vision, mood irregularity, and respiratory failure, among other disabilities.
