Common Causes of Brain Injuries

A brain injury can occur a number of ways, including through:

  • Traffic accidents or car accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Violence or assault
  • Complications caused by medical error or medical malpractice
  • Medication errors
  • Pharmacy negligence
  • Boating accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Bus crashes
  • School bus collisions
  • Aviation accidents
  • On-the-job accidents

Essentially, any time that the brain is shaken violently inside the skull or any time the skull comes into contact with a hard surface, brain injury is possible. A devastating injury is also possible if an object punctures the skull and affects the brain tissue. In addition, certain medical errors or even medical treatments can cause non-traumatic brain injuries. For example, aesthetic errors during surgery or medication errors can produce dangerous reactions and seizure disorders as well as strokes and other issues that can affect brain function.

Why Seek a Legal Assessment After a Brain Injury?

If your brain injury was caused by recklessness or negligence in a car accident in Deerfield Beach or other incident, you may have a legal right to compensation that can help you pay for lost income, medical bills, hospital stays, and other expenses. However, it is difficult to tell whether you do have a case or not unless you speak with a personal injury attorney. Getting legal advice about your injury does several things:

  • It helps you review all of your legal options with an experienced attorney
  • It helps you to understand the likely total cost of your injuries so that you can evaluate insurance offers
  • It can help you find an attorney who will take care of the insurance claims or compensation process for you
  • It can help you launch a legal claim if that is what you decide to do
  • It can help you go over any paperwork or settlement offers that have been made

If you have been injured, speak with a personal injury attorney today. Some attorneys, such as legal staff at Flaxman law, do not charge for an initial consultation, so there's no risk and no obligation involved in at least getting an initial legal assessment.
