Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a common type of head injury that may be suffered in a variety of different accidents, including car accidents, sporting accidents, swimming pool accidents, and construction accidents.  They are the result of a significant impact to the head.

The category “TBI” encompasses a wide variety of head injuries, ranging from the minor concussion to the penetrating brain injury. This occurs when an object actually penetrates the skull and injures the brain tissue. Symptoms of a minor TBI can include:

Symptoms of a serious TBI can include any of the symptoms of a minor TBI, but also:

Based on these symptoms, it’s easy to see how a TBI can be a serious and life-changing injury. Obtaining recovery for a TBI can take additional steps to obtain necessary compensation. For example, it may require special witnesses to testify as to the severity of the injuries and explain how they may be long-term or last a lifetime. 

Getting Medical Help From Experienced Fort Lauderdale Head and Neck Injury Lawyers for Your Injury as Soon as Possible

Neck and head injuries can sometimes take time to present after you have been in an accident. Therefore, it is critical that you get a full physical examination as soon as possible to prevent the injury from becoming worse.  

Worsening symptoms can include shooting pain, headaches, dizziness, pain in the limbs and more. These symptoms can intrude upon your daily life and make it difficult to sleep, work and enjoy your normal daily activities.  

But more importantly, waiting to get treatment can make it harder to get compensation later. For instance, if you wait to get treatment, the insurance company or at-fault party may try to argue that the head and neck injuries weren’t severe. If they were, you would have gone to a doctor sooner.

Alternatively, they can argue that some intervening event occurred to worsen or even cause your condition. This could potentially reduce or eliminate your ability to obtain compensation for your injuries sustained in the accident. 

None of this to say that waiting to see a doctor will always prevent any chance at obtaining compensation. But it can present greater challenges later on should you choose to take legal action or file an insurance claim.

The category “traumatic brain injury” encompasses a wide variety of head injuries, ranging from the minor concussion to the penetrating brain injury (where an object actually penetrates the skull to injure the brain tissue).
