Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

Brain injuries can result from any number of accidents. Many individuals assume that a brain injury can result only from an object striking the head, but any sudden jarring motion can cause the brain to hit the inside of the cranium with sufficient force to cause an injury. An experienced attorney can provide the legal advice you need to seek monetary compensation for your injuries or lost wages.

Headquartered in Coral Gables, the lawyers at Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A. are prepared to represent clients throughout Florida and nationwide.

Serious Brain Trauma Attorneys

Depending on the severity of the impact, individuals will likely be diagnosed with either a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Symptoms can include:

  • Persistent headaches, pain and confusion
  • Cognitive and/or memory problems
  • Fatigue and changes in sleep patterns
  • Mood changes
  • Sensory problems such as changes in vision or hearing

Medical professionals will typically run diagnostic tests to determine if the structure or function of the brain has been damaged. Depending on the extent of the damage, individuals might face serious cognitive challenges and devastating lifelong impairment.

Cerebral Hypoxia

The skull and the fluid surrounding the brain in the cranium are sufficient to protect an individual against trauma in a low-impact injury. However, severe impact or untreated infection can lead to a catastrophic reduction in cognitive ability.

Whether the structure (physical features) or the function (cognitive abilities) of the brain is damaged, there can be devastating ramifications. These symptoms can be more severe and range from persistent headaches to the loss of ability to speak. Depending on which part of the brain is affected and the doctor's ability to diagnose and treat the damage, an individual can suffer lifelong impairment.
