Brain Injury Lawyers in Florida


Feldman & Getz, LLP

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Lawyer
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is most often caused by a severe impact to the head and can result in lasting physical and mental problems. Emotional trauma often affects both victims and their loved ones. Because traumatic brain injuries are most often caused by accidents, they are often the fault of someone other than the victim. Automobile accidents are the most common cause of TBI. Other causes include falls, violence, and sports injuries. While people with minor head injuries often make full recoveries, people with severe traumatic brain injuries often face permanent disability or death. Many TBI patients require long-term rehabilitation beyond their initial medical care. Some may never be able to work again. As a result, many TBI victims and their families find themselves facing tremendous financial obstacles. Our firm is committed to helping victims of traumatic brain injury receive compensation so that they can focus on healing. We will fight for you with tenacity and compassion. Please contact our firm today.

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injury is sudden physical damage to the brain. The damage may be caused by the head forcefully hitting an object such as the dashboard of a car (closed head injury) or by something passing through the skull and piercing the brain, as in a gunshot wound (penetrating head injury). The major causes of head trauma are motor vehicle accidents. Other causes include falls, sports injuries, violent crimes, and child abuse.

The physical, behavioral, or mental changes that may result from head trauma depend on the areas of the brain that are injured. Most injuries cause focal brain damage, damage confined to a small area of the brain. The focal damage is most often at the point where the head hits an object or where an object, such as a bullet, enters the brain.

In addition to focal damage, closed head injuries frequently cause diffuse brain injuries or damage to several other areas of the brain. The diffuse damage occurs when the impact of the injury causes the brain to move back and forth against the inside of the bony skull. The frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, the major speech and language areas, often receive the most damage in this way because they sit in pockets of the skull that allow more room for the brain to shift and sustain injury. Because these major speech and language areas often receive damage, communication difficulties frequently occur following closed head injuries. Other problems may include voice, swallowing, walking, balance, and coordination difficulties, as well as changes in the ability to smell and in memory and cognitive (or thinking) skills.
