Florida Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
Whether it’s because a client’s head was subjected to a trauma, the skull was punctured or even that oxygen was cut off, we know that traumatic brain injury is serious and can be frightening for anyone in Florida. It can also be difficult to understand.
For starters, many injuries that occur aren’t visible. Unlike a compound fracture, the brain can be impacted by conditions that aren’t visible to the human eye. Because we are still learning much about how different cells interact and what different areas of the organ do, it’s not always easy to tell what will happen.
Worse, it can be difficult to figure out a prognosis for the same reason. That can be stressful for family and friends who want to know what will happen next. As we describe in other areas of the website, there can be miracles, and there can be setbacks.
Knowing that will give you the foundation as you read more in the blog about specific types of injuries, whether open or closed. It will also help you understand as we move through both the treatments and any new advances. Keep in mind that neurology is a new field, and one with a variety of advances on a nearly daily basis.
But above all, you will see how to use legal options for redress and to help offset the often high costs of neurological treatment, physical therapy and other needs of patients. It’s a fact that as expenses mount, it can become frustrating or frightening to imagine seeing thousands of dollars in bills each month.
So this will have two parts in our posts. I’ll show you the medical side in terms of what can be done to help treat traumatic brain injury and what can be done to minimize its impact. On the other hand, I’ll show you what legal remedies are available and how to have the best chance of being successful with them.
