Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer In The Villages
The effects of a traumatic brain injury can last a lifetime. To make sure you will be able to cover your medical bills and live as comfortably as possible, it is important that you speak with an attorney about asserting your legal rights.
Although few people contemplate the risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), government statistics show that more than 1.7 million Americans suffer brain injuries every year. More than 1.3 million of these injuries require visits to the emergency room and an estimated 52,000 lead to fatalities. Most people who suffer traumatic brain injuries get hurt while going about their daily routines. In fact, car accidents, golf cart accidents and trip and fall incidents are all among the leading causes of TBI.
While anyone can suffer a traumatic brain injury, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that senior citizens are at the greatest risk both for traumatic brain injuries and TBI-related complications. Families of older adults living with TBIs can face extreme emotional and financial burdens as well. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, The Villages traumatic brain injury attorney Tim Babiarz can help you assert your right to just compensation.
Let Us Help You Seek Just Compensation
Concussions (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury)
Concussions and other mild traumatic brain injuries account for approximately 75 percent of all forms of TBI. Despite being classified as “mild,” these injuries can often have lingering effects. Anyone diagnosed with any type of brain injury should be committed to following his or her doctor’s advice.
Head trauma can be classified as either “open” or “closed.” Both forms of TBI can result from vehicle collisions, golf cart ejections, falls, abuse in nursing homes; and other causes. As with other forms of TBI, when seeking compensation for accident-induced head trauma, understanding the long-term prognosis is critical to ensuring that you receive a fair measure for the harms you have incurred.
Individuals with traumatic brain injuries can experience seizures anywhere from several days to several weeks following the initial event. Sudden dizziness and other effects of seizures can be extremely dangerous -- especially for senior citizens -- and any injuries resulting from a seizure should be included in your claim for financial recovery. A traumatic brain injury attorney can help you understand your options.
Loss of Consciousness
Loss of consciousness is a symptom of many forms of TBI. Similar to having a seizure, losing consciousness can lead to falls and other serious injuries. While loss of consciousness is often the first noticeable symptom of a traumatic brain injury, in many cases, it will result in lingering trauma and symptoms that require emergency medical attention.
Coma (Severe Traumatic Brain Injury)
Severe brain injuries resulting in coma will often have permanent effects and often result in fatalities. We have significant experience representing victims of severe traumatic brain injuries and their families in The Villages and throughout Central Florida.
