When you suffer a blow to the head in a serious accident, it can cause trauma to your brain that forever changes your life. The attorneys of Larson Johnson, PL, located in Tampa, understand how important it is to get compensation in traumatic brain injury cases and have the dedication needed to reach a positive outcome. Whether you sustained a concussion, contusion or some other head trauma in an accident caused by another party, we can help you seek justice.
What is a traumatic brain injury?
Traumatic brain injuries can be extremely debilitating. This type of injury will affect the basic functions of neurons, which carry messages to and from the brain. These messages coordinate motor skills, memory and actions such as breathing, heart rate and body temperature. They also make it possible to think, reason and perform even the most basic tasks. A traumatic brain injury can adversely affect all of these critical brain functions. Some common types of these injuries include:
- Concussions — This type of injury can be caused by a blow to the head, resulting in the brain hitting against the skull.
- Contusions — When the brain itself becomes bruised in an accident, it can become so severe that the brain swells and results in a loss of brain function.
- Penetrating brain injury — Objects can become lodged in the skull in a collision, such as glass from the windshield.
As a regular part of our representation, we obtain and present medical testimony to show how the traumatic injury occurred, then hold the party responsible for causing the injury accountable.
How does a traumatic brain injury happen?
A traumatic brain injury may be caused by a variety of accidents, such as:
- Auto accidents
- Slip and falls
- Falling objects
- Airborne projectiles
- Construction accidents
- Medical malpractice
No matter how the brain injury occurs, if someone else caused or contributed to the accident, we will work with dedication to build and present a strong case demonstrating how their actions or inactions resulted in your brain injury.
The effects of a traumatic brain injury
Brain injuries are often difficult to recognize because the effects are not always apparent. However, these injuries can cause effects such as headaches, lack of concentration, memory loss and personality changes. Still worse, they can disable you, make it impossible to think coherently, end your gainful employment, prevent you from supporting and caring for your loved ones and reduce your ability to enjoy life. If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s important to seek immediate medical care. Doing so can prevent a brain injury from going undiagnosed, and symptoms from getting worse.
Larson Johnson, P.L. recognizes the issues that are involved with living with a serious brain injury, like receiving proper medical and attendant care. We will document all the effects of your injury and do our best to make sure you are properly compensated for them. Some damages you can seek payment for include lost wages due to missed work, medical bills, pain and suffering and, in some cases, physical therapy and long-term care needs.
