Florida Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious and often life-threatening condition caused by physical impact to the head. These traumatic events can seriously damage one’s motor functions, hormone regulation, memory, thinking, sensory perception, and numerous other important bodily processes. Unfortunately, an injury to the brain may not be easily diagnosed or identified when it occurs—even if there are serious effects on your physical, emotional, and cognitive abilities.
Symptoms that Could Mean you have a TBI
Slotin Law encourages everyone to seek medical treatment immediately after any head injury for any of the following symptoms:
- Skull fracture
- Any kind of open head injury
- A loss of consciousness
- A post-traumatic seizure
- Paralysis in one or more limbs
- Diminished coordination
- Loss in vision
- Extreme headache
- Persistent headaches
- Mood swings
- Behavioral changes
A traumatic brain injury can occur whenever an external force impacts the head directly or causes rapid acceleration or deceleration of the skull. However, symptoms may not be immediately apparent because brain injuries can take time to develop. So, even if a victim of head trauma believes they are okay, they may not be rational due to shock and/or injury impairment. That is why we recommend everyone with a possible traumatic brain injury seek immediate medical attention.
Once a you have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to recover significant compensation in Florida. Traumatic brain injuries, because of their severity, often incur the highest medical expenses for the future treatment, total loss of future income, along with expensive rehabilitation and home health care.
At Slotin Law, we are prepared to hold anyone who negligently caused brain injuries in Florida fully accountable under the law. Call Slotin Law now at (904) 710-9901 to learn how we can get you and your family complete compensation for traumatic brain injuries.
