Traumatic Brain Injuries

Lawyers Serving Traumatic Brain Injury Victims in Ocala

Traumatic brain injury, also known as intracranial injury, presents a number of unique challenges. These are caused by a blow to the head or penetrating head injury that harms the normal functioning of the brain. The harm can range from mild to severe. In 2010 there were 2.5 million cases of traumatic brain injury in the United States, many of them caused by car accidents, work accidents, or slip and falls. If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury because of somebody else's negligence, the Ocala serious injury attorneys of Dean Law Firm may be able to help.

Holding Others Accountable When Carelessness Causes Severe Harm

Although great strides have been made over the past decade, the brain remains mysterious to us. It is still difficult to diagnose and treat traumatic brain injuries. They can affect the ability to speak or understand a speaker, concentration, walking, and more. Early symptoms of traumatic brain injury can be mild. Even if you believe the damage was minor, you should take your loved one to a doctor as soon as possible. The long-term effects in an individual's ability to function may become more serious. Some signs of this injury are headaches, concentration problems, forgetfulness, dizziness, and anxiety.

Intracranial injury can be caused by many different kinds of accidents. If someone else's carelessness caused the accident that resulted in the injury, you should consider filing a negligence claim. To succeed, you will have to show that the defendant owed a duty, that the defendant breached the duty, and that the breach caused the traumatic brain injury. This is true whether the context is a truck crash, a motorcycle crash, a slip and fall, or a boating accident. The damages can be very significant for severe traumatic brain injury. The person who is injured may be able to recover past and future medical expenses, past and future lost earnings, vocational rehabilitation, loss of enjoyment, and pain and suffering.

It is commonly and falsely believed that you cannot have a traumatic brain injury if you don't receive a direct blow to the head or lose consciousness. However, even a jolt such as shaking a child can result in an intracranial injury with long-term effects and symptoms. Some insurers refuse to pay a claim on the basis of these popular misconceptions. If you or your loved one suffer a traumatic brain injury because of someone else's negligence, you should ask experienced attorneys for help with filing a personal injury claim.
