Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are often the result of accidents, including motorcycle accidents and automobile accidents, causing severe physical injuries to the victim. However, a victim can sustain a TBI in virtually any traffic accident, or other incident involving an impact or trauma that affects the head. The effects of TBI can range from mild to severe, and can impact the victim in a variety of ways. Therapy and medical treatment for TBI victims can be costly, frequent, and painful. The loved ones of these victims face the prospect of stress, pain, and increased responsibilities. Some victims may never fully recover.
If you or a loved one has suffered from TBI as the result of someone else’s conduct, you may be entitled to monetary damages. Under Florida law, the victim and/or their family is entitled to compensation for the at-fault party, which may include:
- Past and Future Medical Bills
- Past and Future Wage Loss
- Loss of Ability to Earn Money
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Capacity for the Enjoyment of Life
- Loss of Consortium
A brain injury is not always immediately apparent following an accident. In fact, in some cases, TBI can go undiagnosed and untreated. Loss of consciousness, blurred vision, and temporary memory loss following an accident can all be indicative of brain injury. It is important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident, particularly if you experience a head injury.
Modern medical technology has made incredible advances in diagnosing TBI. However, presenting a claim involving TBI to the at-fault party and/or their insurer can be extremely difficult. Proving that the victim has sustained a brain injury as the result of an accident can be complicated and frustrating without the assistance of an experienced attorney.
