Brain injuries can result from any number of accidents. Many individuals assume that a brain injury can only result from an object striking the head, but any sudden jarring motion can cause the brain to hit the inside of the cranium with sufficient force to cause an injury. An experienced attorney can provide the legal advice you need to seek monetary compensation for your injuries or lost wages.
Headquartered in Miami, the lawyers at Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. are prepared to represent clients throughout Florida and nationwide.
Serious Brain Trauma Attorneys
Depending on the severity of the impact, individuals will likely be diagnosed with either a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries, ranging from mild to severe, yearly. The same CDC report stated that 50,000 people die each year from TBIs, and the early symptoms can include:
- Persistent headache
- Cognitive and/or memory problems
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Mood changes
- Sensory problems such as changes in vision or hearing
Medical professionals will typically run diagnostic tests to determine if the structure or function of the brain has been damaged. Depending on the extent of the damage, individuals might face serious cognitive challenges and devastating lifelong impairment.
