Homestead Brain Injury

Brain injuries can be one of the most devastating injuries to sustain, because they affect so much of the victim’s life. Brain injury patients in Homestead may suffer from depression, may have difficulty returning to everyday tasks, may experience behavioral or personality changes, and may be unable to return to work due to their injuries.

What Causes Brain Injuries?

Brain injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Workplace injuries
  • Car accidents
  • Violence or assault
  • Birth injuries
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Airplane accidents
  • Boat collisions
  • Truck crashes
  • Public transportation accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products

Any time that the skull is fractured or hit hard enough for the brain to smash up against the inside of the skull, serious injury can occur. Trauma and a hard impact can cause bruising and bleeding inside the skull, leading to tissue damage and brain damage.

No matter what has caused your brain injury, it is important to note that these types of injuries are not only painful and difficult, but they can affect you for a lifetime. Brain injury patients often face:

  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Concentration problems
  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly
  • Behavioral changes
  • Relationship problems
  • Vision loss
  • Mobility problems
Brain Injuries are Expensive for Victims

In addition to the pain and suffering caused by brain injuries, these types of injuries can be extremely expensive to treat. Brain injury patients who have sustained a permanent injury may face millions of dollars over their lifetime in lost wages, lost work opportunities, medical costs, rehabilitation costs, caregiver costs, and other expenses.

Someone who has suffered a serious brain injury may require around-the-clock care or may need to live in an assisted living facility because they can no longer care for themselves. In cases where brain injury patients are expected to make a partial recovery, the costs can still add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in surgery, expert medical care, rehabilitation costs, and other expenses. If your injuries were caused by no fault of your own you should not have to pay these costs out-of-pocket. Working with a personal injury attorney can help you seek out options for compensation.

It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Homestead quickly after you have suffered an injury. You may be offered an insurance amount or settlement right away, and you may face immediate financial needs as you pay for medical bills, replace lost income, and take care of the many other expenses associated with your accident and injuries. In addition to your immediate needs, you also will want to secure evidence and documentation in your case right away.

If you wait too long, it can be harder for your personal injury attorney to build a strong case because some evidence may no longer be available.
