A brain injury can change your life, affecting everything from your ability to work to your capacity for speech, mobility, and problem solving. If your brain injury was caused by a reckless driver, careless building owner, or due to negligence of any kind, you have the right to pursue compensation for the many hardships you face.

Behind every brain injury claim is a human being who is struggling to recover, and perhaps having difficulty earning a living and handling everyday life activities. At Kogan & DiSalvo, we never forget the human element of personal injury claims. An experienced Tampa brain injury attorney at our firm is here to listen to your story and how this injury has affected your life. If your case has merit, we will work tirelessly to help you pursue the financial resources you need to make it through this difficult time.

What Type of Brain Injury Did You Suffer?

The two main categories of brain injury are:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): These injuries are caused by a sudden force applied to the head. Closed TBIs involve a blunt force that jostles and damages the brain, while open TBIs involve an object penetrating the skull and impacting the brain directly.
  • Non-traumatic brain injury: Also known as acquired brain injuries, these injuries arise from medical conditions such as strokes, aneurysms, and meningitis. People may also develop these injuries from environmental factors such as exposure to carbon monoxide.

The type of brain injury you suffered will play a key role in your diagnosis and the treatment program your medical providers establish for you. It may also play a role in legal proceedings arising from your accident, including determining how your accident took place and identifying who is liable for your injuries.

Causes of TBI

Before helping you obtain compensation for your brain injury, we must get answers regarding the circumstances of the accident. How were you injured? Is someone else to blame?

We apply significant resources to investigations surrounding brain injury claims. A close look into the root causes of brain injuries can reveal evidence of negligence and wrongdoing, such as:

  • Misconduct by a driver of a motor vehicle, resulting in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident
  • A slip and fall accident caused by the negligence of a property owner or other party
  • Work injuries
  • Assaults, robberies, and other violent attacks

Whether your brain injury was caused by a negligent individual or a large corporation, you need facts and evidence to back up your claim.

The opposing party, which may be a powerful insurance company, will come armed with their own set of facts and probably a team of lawyers. They are not interested in helping you obtain a fair settlement. They are acting in their own interests and will do everything in their power to limit, delay, or outright deny the compensation you receive.

An experienced brain injury attorney in Tampa can help you compile the evidence you need to present a compelling argument, whether your case goes to trial or is resolved through negotiation and settlement.

Signs You Have Sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury

The goal of a personal injury claim is to restore you to the position in life you would be in had the at-fault party’s negligent conduct not occurred. In pursuing this goal, we must consider all of the various ways a brain injury has changed your life.

Every brain injury is different, but victims often experience:

  • Severe headaches
  • Memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty with speech
  • Impaired vision
  • Impaired cognition

People who have previously suffered concussions are at risk of developing chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) upon subsequent brain injuries. CTE generally becomes worse over time and may develop into Parkinson’s disease and progressive dementia.

An experienced CTE brain injury lawyer in Tampa can evaluate the impact this injury has had on your life to determine a fair amount of compensation that will account for the many losses and changes you have experienced.

How a Tampa Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help

If you are suffering from the effects of a serious brain injury, no legal action can undo what has happened. By filing a personal injury claim, you can, however, obtain the financial compensation you need to deal with the many hardships you face.

Florida law allows victims of catastrophic injuries to pursue compensation for medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other hardships, as long as it can be proved that the injury was caused by another person’s negligence or misconduct.

With a skilled lawyer on your side, you can pursue the maximum amount of compensation available under the law.
