What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?

After an accident, if you suffer a serious impact to your head, you may suffer a traumatic brain injury. That means that as your head moves one way, your brain inside your head may hit the side of your skull and cause injury. A closed head injury is another term for a traumatic brain injury. There’s no open bleeding but something went wrong and caused you tremendous damage. Your brain has been injured, you may black out, you may be dizzy, you may lose consciousness, you may be nauseous. You need to seek medical care right away. You need to have the doctors take care of you, and you need a lawyer who is experienced in these cases, who knows how to handle it, who knows how to help you out. Our personal injury attorneys at Fetterman & Associates P.A., have been handling these cases for decades. We know how to help you. Call us.

West Palm Beach Brain Injury Lawyer

Accidents that result in brain injuries can strike at any time, while driving a car, playing sports, or even just walking down the street. Unfortunately, many Florida residents have their lives turned upside down as a result of these accidents.

Brain injuries are often categorized as either traumatic or acquired. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) arise from any significant or sudden contact of the head with a hard surface.

In fact, even the jostling of the organ inside the head (without external contact on the skull) may cause head trauma. Acquired brain injuries are slightly different than TBIs and are caused by oxygen deprivation, exposure to toxic chemicals, and similar situations.

Our legal team at Fetterman & Associates, PA works with families in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, and other nearby communities on the legal ramifications that often accompany brain injuries.

Head and Brain Accident Injuries

Various head injuries may occur in a motorcycle accident, including mild to severe concussions. Although a concussion is serious, an even greater concern is traumatic brain injury (TBI).

TBI can compromise your ability to function on physical and mental levels, and it can lead to the victim being in a permanent vegetative state or even to their death.

Florida Brain Injuries – The Scope

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 1.7 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each and every year. Sadly, these injuries are often very serious, with nearly a third of all injury-related deaths rooted in some form of brain trauma.

Some of the most common accidents leading to traumatic brain injury include:

Acquired brain injuries are the common following:

  • Traumatic births
  • Drowning or near-drowning
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Medical malpractice

Common Brain Injury Symptoms

The most serious brain injuries usually include obvious symptoms. For example, individuals who suffer a life-threatening TBI following a car accident may lose consciousness or otherwise have clear external trauma which make the injury easy to identify.

However, there are many other brain injuries that do not come with obvious external injuries, and it is common for sufferers to miss signs of the damage. Any time that you are in a situation where a head injury was a possibility, it is important to remain on the lookout for signs of injury.

Common brain injury symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Frequent headaches
  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Sudden personality changes
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Trouble with concentration
  • Vision problems

It is critical for outside friends and family members to help identify problems with those who suffer brain injury. That is particularly true for child victims. Children may not be able to articulate their symptoms and may not appreciate the seriousness of their trauma.

As a result, it is incumbent upon others to keep a close eye on youngsters who may have suffered a TBI.

In all cases, it is prudent to seek out medical attention whenever there is a risk of brain injury. Delay in seeking care can cause a myriad of complications. The stakes are too high to put off seeking medical support as soon as feasible following an accident

Florida Brain Injuries – The Law

Receiving timely medical treatment is the most important first step following a brain injury. Once the condition is stabilized, it is important to also consider the legal ramifications of the event.

Under the civil law, whenever one is injured by the negligence of another, the injured party likely has legal recourse to recover for their losses.

In the case of brain injury, the specific legal issues involved depend on the details of the accident. For example, in a car collision, a negligent driver may be partially or fully responsible.

Following a fall, the individual who failed to fix the broken stair or wipe the wet floor may be required to provide redress.

In all cases the underlying purpose of the law is to provide compensation for those hurt so that they are given the best chance at a full and speedy recovery.

Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.
