Wesley Chapel Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

A traumatic brain injury can change your life. They are one of the most serious injuries that can result from an accident. Your brain controls all your bodily functions. So, it should come as no surprise that an impact to the head can have severe consequences. If you hit your head in a car accident or after slipping and falling, you may require extensive medical treatment. In addition to the emotional trauma associated with a serious injury, you may face financial hardships as well.

If someone else was responsible for your injuries, you might be able to pursue compensation from them. Consider meeting with a Wesley Chapel traumatic brain injury lawyer to discuss your situation. We can help hold the responsible parties liable and give you the counsel you need to move forward. Our dedicated injury attorneys are here to provide you with the support you need after an accident.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Any hit to the head can cause an injury, but not all impacts result in devastating harm. Florida Statutes Annotated § 381.745(2)(b) defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as harm to the “skull, brain, or its covering, resulting from external trauma that produces an altered state of consciousness or anatomic motor, sensory, cognitive, or behavioral deficits.” If you are unsure whether your severe head injury is considered a TBI, do not hesitate to ask a lawyer in Wesley Chapel.

Common Causes and How a Severe Head Trauma Can Alter Your Life

Head injuries can arise in a variety of ways. Some of the most common accident include:

Regardless of how you sustained your brain injury, you should be aware of the short-term and long-term effects of head trauma. After the accident, you might experience symptoms, such as:

After experiencing any hit to the head, you should seek immediate medical care.  The extent of the damage may not be apparent right away, but a swift response could prevent the development of secondary complications, such as:

In some cases, patients may succumb to a coma or vegetative state. Worse yet, some individuals may pass away due to their brain damage. Our compassionate lawyers understand the challenges you and your family are facing, and we hope to help you secure compensation to ease the financial strain of treating a TBI.

What Types of Compensation Could You Receive After an Accident in Wesley Chapel?

After suffering severe head trauma, your brain may never function at full capacity again. Due to the unfortunate and long-term consequences of this medical condition, you should seek compensation to address the losses you are currently experiencing and the ones you will face in the future.

Often, TBI patients must commit to long-term physical, occupational, and recreational therapy, which can be very costly. In addition to these treatments, you may need to purchase medical equipment to make your home more accessible. The cost of home and care modifications, in-home care, and on-going medical treatment may exceed your family’s available insurance and savings.

If you are unable to return to work, the loss of income can make it even more difficult to manage these expenses. An experienced attorney could help you obtain full compensation for your traumatic brain injury. Our attorneys who regularly practice in this area could also help you determine your eligibility to participate in Florida’s Brain and Spinal Cord Program, under Fla. Stat. Ann. § 381.79, which may fund some costs and provide essential services.
