Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic Brain Injuries, otherwise known as TBI's, can occur anytime a person's head suffers a bump, blow, jolt or sudden impact. The most common cause of traumatic brain injuries is personal injuries, which can result from auto accidents and falls.
Every year, millions of Americans suffer from brain injuries and over 50% of those are severe enough to result in a hospital visit. While it may seem like a simple bump, TBI's can be extremely serious and result in life-altering damage, health concerns and even death.
"TBI symptoms may vary widely, depending on the individual. After a TBI, you may suffer from headaches, neck pain, ringing in the ears, nausea, dizziness and fatigue, if you have had a concussion. These symptoms may not show themselves until hours or days after the physical damage occurred." says personal injury attorney, Dante Weston.
Anyone who suffers a severe accident in Florida needs a tremendous amount of funds to cover the cost of living with expensive and on-going medical care. The circumstances around an accident dictate the number of avenues of relief available to the plaintiff.
If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should talk to an attorney about your right to pursue financial compensation for what you have been through.
