Central Florida Traumatic Brain Injury Law Firm

Neurological deficits from brain injuries can last a lifetime, resulting in physical, cognitive, and behavioral challenges. Traumatic brain injuries are a significant cause of death and disability in the United States. The most common causes of traumatic brain injuries are falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, or assaults from a direct blow to the head. These injuries cause bleeding, swelling, bruising, and torn brain tissue. Catastrophic events may preclude a victim from earning present and future wages. It can result in a lifetime of care that costs in the range of millions of dollars.

It is prudent for a brain injury victim to seek legal counsel from an experienced traumatic brain injury attorney. Klausman Law understands the full range of brain injuries, from concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries. Even when brain injuries are not detected immediately after an accident, subsequent symptoms may cause the victim to need care and rehabilitation for the rest of their life. Treatment can include speech and occupational therapies, vocational skills training, physical therapy, and pain management. Unlike other parts of the body, the brain does not grow new tissue or bone to repair the damage.

A Brain Injury may manifest in Physical, Cognitive, or Behavioral Symptoms:

  • Physical symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, muscle spasticity, loss of coordination, paralysis, changes in senses, seizures, sleep disturbances, nausea, vomiting, and death.
  • Cognitive symptoms may include memory loss, shortened attention span, language and communication deficits, delayed processing of information, lack of judgment, and confusion.
  • Behavioral symptoms may occur, including depression, agitation, mood lability, and aggressive behaviors.

The Dangers of a Concussion

A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by the brain bouncing inside the skull. Anyone who has sustained a concussion knows the symptoms can be similar to a more severe traumatic brain injury. However, many persons have subtle symptoms and resume their normal activities, initially unaware of their altered ability to function. Without proper medical care, a victim’s symptoms can escalate, with devastating consequences. Recent studies have shown that suffering a concussion at age 50 or older increases the risk of dementia. We know that someone who has suffered a concussion is susceptible to more significant problems if they suffer a second concussion.
