Miami Springs Brain Injury

In recent years, traumatic brain injuries have gotten a lot of attention in the media. This is because new research has shown that even so-called minor concussions can lead to long-term damage, especially if the patient has sustained multiple concussions or injuries. Researchers have shown that athletes who have sustained repetitive minor head injuries often face a lifetime of brain injury, and this has led to some lawsuits filed against professional sports organizations. In addition, research has shown that soldiers who have served overseas sometimes sustain traumatic brain injuries that change their lives forever.

If you have sustained a serious head injury in Miami Springs or your community, however, the attorneys at Flaxman Law Group understand that your concerns have nothing to do with the news. Rather, you may be concerned about being unable to work or having large hospital bills to pay because of your injuries. There may be options available to you under Florida law that allow you to seek compensation for these costs. To find out whether you qualify, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free case review. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group would be happy to review your options with you.

Common Causes Of Brain Injury

The most common causes of brain injury include:

  • Traffic accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Sporting injuries
  • Workplace injuries or violence
  • Violence, especially firearm injuries
  • Recreational accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Boating accidents

Any time the head strikes a hard surface or is violently shaken, there is a risk of injury.

Consequences Of Serious Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can cause:

  • Emotional impairments
  • Physical challenges
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Memory loss
  • Vision problems
  • Mobility issues
  • Difficulty completing everyday tasks or personal care tasks

Brain injuries can be one of the most devastating injuries to sustain, and they can also be one of the most expensive. Brain injury patients may face a long road to recovery, complete with occupational therapy, counseling, medications, surgery, and other expensive and complicated medical treatments. Some brain injury patients never recover and must adapt to life with changed abilities. This can be devastating not only for the patient but also the entire family.

Finding All Liable Parties In Your Head Trauma Case

if you have sustained brain trauma, it is important to find all liable parties in your case and to pursue compensation if you qualify. Pursuing all liable parties in a legal claim can improve the chances that you will be able to secure fair, full compensation so that you can pay for more of your medical expenses, hospital stays, and other expenses related to your injuries. However, finding all liable parties can be difficult. If you've been injured in a traffic accident in Miami Springs or another community, there may be multiple liable parties in your case, including:

  • The at-fault driver
  • The municipality where the accident took place if road design or road repairs were a factor in the accident
  • The truck carrier or truck driver involved in a trucking accident
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle if mechanical failure played a role
