If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain injury following a traumatic accident, taking the necessary action to assert your family’s legal rights will be an important step in the recovery process. All types of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) have the potential for lasting effects, and these effects can prove extraordinarily costly both in terms of their financial burden and their impact on your day-to-day life. Our Fort Walton Beach Brain Injury Law Firm has decades of experience helping accident victims and families recover their losses.

We represent clients throughout the Tallahassee area, including Fort Walton Beach, and we handle cases involving brain injuries resulting from vehicle collisions, falls and all other types of accidents. As your attorneys, we will work diligently to recover just compensation for your losses on your behalf, and we will help you make informed decisions about all aspects of your recovery.

Understanding the Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

Whether you or your loved one has been diagnosed with a concussion or other “mild” form of traumatic brain injury, or you are struggling to cope with the effects of an injury that resulted in severe brain damage, when it comes to recovering just compensation it is imperative that you focus on the long-term effects of your or your loved one’s TBI. Scientific research is continuing to point to potential long-term complications from concussions and other “mild” injuries, while the debilitating effects of severe brain damage can be life-altering for the victim and his or her entire family. 

Our Fort Walton Beach brain injury law firm handles traumatic brain injury cases, we focus on ensuring that our clients receive full financial compensation for the immediate and long-term effects of their injuries. Depending on the nature and severity of a particular TBI, these long-term effects may include:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Brain inflammation
  • Chronic headaches
  • Chronic memory loss or impairment
  • Cognitive impairments 
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Post-traumatic seizures

These and other effects can lead to numerous physical, psychological and practical complications, and these complications can substantially increase the financial and non-financial costs of recovery. In cases of severe brain damage, accident victims can also experience conditions including minimal consciousness, coma, locked-in syndrome, falling into a vegetative state and brain death. We work with our clients’ doctors to fully understand the consequences of their injuries, and we tailor our representation to the facts of each individual case in order to ensure that we are seeking maximum compensation for our clients’ losses.

Other Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries, whether mild or severe, can manifest themselves in any number of ways. Here are some of the specific brain injuries that we’ve helped our clients recover compensation for: 

  • Skull fractures. Blunt force trauma to the head can break the bones of the skull. These injuries often cause brain damage.
  • Edema (swelling of the brain). This is a very dangerous injury where the pressure from the swelling causes the brain to press against the skull. 
  • Subdural hematoma. This is when blood collects on the surface of the brain and underneath the skull. These injuries are potentially life-threatening and can result in permanent brain damage.
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage. This is uncontrolled bleeding in the space around your brain, which can cause vomiting and bleeding. 
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage. This is uncontrolled bleeding within the brain tissue. Over time, it can cause tremendous pressure on the brain. 

It’s quite common for victims of serious accidents to suffer many of these injuries simultaneously. Also, many of these injuries will require immediate hospitalization. As a result, many people who suffer severe brain injuries have significant medical bills and may not work for an extended period of time. If you’ve suffered one of these injuries due to someone else’s negligence, an experienced Fort Walton Beach injury law firm can help you get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and support yourself and your family during your recovery.
