Fort Lauderdale Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are among the most common types of severe injuries suffered in vehicle collisions, falls and other accidents. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) describe a TBI as “a major cause of death and disability in the United States,” and note that while anyone can suffer a traumatic brain injury, TBIs are more common among – and present greater risks for – certain segments of the population. Due to the risk for long-term health and financial consequences, anyone who is experiencing symptoms of a traumatic brain injury should consult with a Fort Lauderdale TBI attorney promptly.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a concussion or other TBI, you probably have lots of questions. Our Fort Lauderdale traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you answer questions such as:

  • Is there a difference between a personal injury attorney and a TBI attorney?
  • Where should you go for diagnosis and treatment of a TBI in Fort Lauderdale?
  • Does health insurance cover TBI from accidents? What about other types of insurance?
  • What should you do if you or your spouse will be unable to work due to a TBI?
  • When can you recover financial compensation for a TBI from an accident?

Seeking Financial Compensation for TBI Based on Negligence

In most cases, seeking financial compensation for a traumatic brain injury requires proof of negligence. While personal injury protection (PIP) insurance provides “no-fault” coverage for auto accidents, PIP will not cover all of the costs of a serious TBI. As a result, after any type of accident, one of the first steps that must be taken is to determine who (or what company) is legally responsible.

Negligence can take many different forms. Distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and running red lights and stop signs are all forms of negligence. So are mistakes such as failing to fix known property hazards and failing to adequately protect athletes on the field of play. When you hire a Fort Lauderdale TBI attorney at Maus Law Firm, your attorney will oversee a comprehensive investigation focused on gathering all available evidence of liability.

While negligence is the most common cause of accidents resulting in TBI, there are other potential causes as well. For example, product defects and unsafe work conditions will also be to blame for individuals’ traumatic brain injuries in some cases. In addition to looking for evidence of negligence, our Fort Lauderdale traumatic brain injury lawyer will examine all other possible causes and all other possible sources of financial recovery.

Early Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you have concerns about a possible traumatic brain injury, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. We can refer you to a specialist in Fort Lauderdale, and we encourage you to contact us immediately if you have not seen a doctor already. Some of the most common early symptoms of TBI include:

  • Anxiety
  • Blurred vision
  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty maintaining balance or walking
  • Difficulty thinking clearly
  • Lethargy (lack of energy)
  • Mood swings (becoming easily upset or angered)
  • Sadness and depression
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Trouble sleeping

Financial and Non-Financial Costs of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Whether a traumatic brain injury lasts for weeks, months or years, its catastrophic effects can lead to significant financial and non-financial costs. If negligence, a product defect or unsafe work conditions are to blame for your (or your loved one’s) brain injury, a Fort Lauderdale TBI attorney may be able to help you recover costs including:

  • Medical treatment costs (including psychological treatment)
  • Rehabilitation and long-term care costs
  • Lost wages and future income
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Negative impacts on your relationship with your spouse, children and others
