Brain Injury Attorney in Tampa
Brain injuries most often result from things like car accidents, workplace accidents, sports injuries, assaults, and sometimes even medical malpractice. Victims who sustain a brain injury can suffer long-term damage, including cognitive impairment, behavioral changes, difficulty sleeping or relating to others, and more. Brain injury victims may require surgical procedures and therapy to mitigate the damage, but for some, the consequences can be permanent. Brain injuries can be classified as either traumatic (resulting from a severe blow to the head or extreme outside force) or non-traumatic (in which the brain is damaged due to a lack of oxygen). Both types are very serious.
The costs of treating a brain injury can be overwhelming to a family, especially if the injured person was their primary source of financial support. Get in touch with an attorney to determine whether you are eligible to pursue compensation for these costs from the liable party.
The Lifetime Impact of Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury can completely change a victim’s life, resulting in constant pain and a loss of mobility. Spinal cord injuries often result in some level of paralysis, depending on the severity and location of the injury. Paralysis can be either complete (resulting in total loss of feeling and movement below the level of the injury) or incomplete (leaving the victim with some feeling or movement below the injury site). A diagnosis of paraplegia or quadriplegia means that the victim will be dependent upon constant medical care, which can cost millions of dollars over the course of a lifetime. Holding the party responsible for your injury can bring you the financial resources you need to ensure your continued care.
