Hialeah Brain Injury
We rely on our brain not only for thinking, but for mobility, memory, and for completing everyday tasks such as grooming and eating. Sustaining a serious brain trauma is about a lot more than simply losing some memory or developing headaches. A serious injury can leave you unable to return to your job and unable to lead the full life you enjoy before a serious accident.
If your life has been affected by a serious brain injury in Hialeah or another Florida community, get legal advice. Depending on what has caused your injury, you may qualify for compensation by filing a legal claim.

Traumatic brain injuries and brain damage can occur as a result of number of situations:
- From a sudden blow to the head. This can result in a closed head traumatic brain injury. This type of injury can occur due to traffic accidents, falls, and other incidents and can be difficult to diagnose because patients don’t always experience symptoms right away. However, these injuries can be extremely serious and can lead to fatalities or permanent injury.
- From a birth injury. Childbirth can be difficult for both mother and child. During birth, brain injury can result from inadequate oxygen to the brain, often as a result of an umbilical cord wrapped around the baby’s neck. Injury can also happen due to incorrect use of forceps and due to other issues. In many cases, birth injury in Hialeah and other cities is preventable if the baby and mother are correctly monitored and if medical staff responds promptly to any problems. Often, children born with severe brain injuries are unable to pursue careers and may require around-the-clock care for the rest of their lives. Pursuing compensation in these cases can help parents provide their child with the best quality of life possible.
- From a penetrating head injury. These types of injuries often occur as the result of violence, especially gun violence and knife violence. They can also occur as a result of physical assault and battery. In this type of head injury, the skull is pierced with an object, such as a bullet or knife, and that object as well as fragments of the skull can enter the brain, causing severe and even fatal injury. In these types of injuries, it is often possible to bring about a legal case not only against the perpetrator but in some cases against a property owner who failed to provide a safe environment for visitors to their property.
- From oxygen deprivation. In some cases, lack of oxygen to the brain can result in cell death and damage to the delicate tissue inside the brain. Oxygen deprivation can occur as a result of medical malpractice during surgery, as a result of swimming pool near drownings, and as a result of birth trauma. Often, brain injuries resulting from oxygen deprivation can lead to difficulty with mobility, cognitive function, and other basic skills.
