Boca Raton Brain Injury
Any injury can have long-term consequences, but few are as debilitating as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Many victims never fully recover. They face overwhelming medical bills and are unable to return to work. They may find it difficult to perform everyday tasks or participate in activities they once loved.
The Boca Raton brain injury attorneys at Donaldson & Weston understand the challenge of coping with the physical, emotional, and financial impacts of a TBI. We have helped many victims of brain trauma recover the compensation they needed to pay for healthcare expenses and lost income. We can also help you pursue non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and mental anguish.
We offer free case evaluations and will not charge any attorney fees unless we win your case. Call 561-299-3999 to speak with a member of our team.Types of Brain Injury Cases We Handle in Boca Raton
Any severe blow to the head can result in a TBI. Sometimes all it takes is a violent jolt of the neck to cause brain damage. Although there are countless causes of brain injuries, the vast majority of them occur in preventable accidents.
A personal injury lawyer from Donaldson & Weston can review your case for free to find out if you have grounds for a claim. We handle a variety of brain injury cases including those arising from:
- Auto Accidents: The leading cause of TBIs in the United States is motor-vehicle collisions. Hitting your head on the steering wheel, dashboard, side window, or a loose object in the car can result in severe brain trauma. Because the vast majority—more than 90 percent—of auto accidents are caused by driver errors, those who suffer TBIs in collisions are often able to recover compensation for their medical bills, lost income, and non-economic damages by filing personal injury claims.
- Serious Falls: Although fall injuries are typically associated with the elderly, anyone can sustain a brain injury in an unexpected fall. Some of the most severe fall accidents occur in supermarkets and other commercial establishments when staff fail to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition. Others happen on worksites when employers and third-party contractors violate OSHA safety regulations. In either of these scenarios, the victim can bring a claim for injury-related damages.
- Violent Criminal Acts: When a person loses control and attacks someone, the assailant may be held liable for the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. If you or someone in your family suffered a brain injury in a violent attack, contact Donaldson & Weston to speak with a Boca Raton brain injury lawyer about your case.
- Other Brain Injury Cases: A TBI can occur in a variety of ways. If another person’s negligence or wrongful act caused your brain injury, you have the right to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim.
