Knowledgeable Legal Guidance for Victims of Head and Brain Injuries in Clermont, Inverness and Tavares, FL
The aftermath of brain trauma and head injuries can be devastating and expensive
Injuries to the body can cause terrible pain and damage. Fortunately, in many cases, such injuries heal completely over time. However, injuries to the head or brain can often cause permanent and debilitating damage. In addition to pain and suffering, brain trauma can cause loss of memory, changes in personality and reduced cognitive ability. Brain trauma can also devastate the family of the victim in many ways. At Largey Law, we have 27 years of combined experience in Clermont, Inverness and Tavares fighting for the compensation that victims of brain trauma and head injuries deserve.
Common head and brain injuries
One of the most common classifications of brain injury is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), which can include the following:
- Concussions can be caused by a direct blow to the head or the violent shaking of the head, for example in a whiplash injury. A concussion occurs when the brain itself strikes the internal wall of the skull. It may cause loss of consciousness and can lead to lifelong physical and mental impairments.
- Diffuse axonal injuries occur when the head is shaken violently. The brain does not move as fast as the skull does, tearing nerve tissue across the brain.
- Contusions, or bleeding within the brain, can be caused by a direct impact to the head.
- Coup-contrecoup injuries are contusions at both the site of the impact and the exact opposite side of the brain.
Other types of brain injuries, known as Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), can be caused by damage to the brain suffered in less traumatic — but no less damaging — ways.
Consequences of brain and head trauma
Symptoms of brain injuries and spinal cord damage can last long past physical recovery. TBI and ABI can affect a range of cognitive abilities, including:
They can also induce neurological conditions such as epilepsy and other seizure disorders. When a child suffers a brain injury, it can affect the ability to learn, mature, integrate socially and lead an independent life. Such injuries can also severely drain the emotional and financial resources of the victim’s family.
In many cases, injury claims provide the only option a victim and his/her family has to absorb the financial impact of such injuries. Skilled attorneys, like those at Largey Law, can help you review your case, determine the validity of your claim, and seek justice on your behalf.
