Brain Injury Caused by Car and Truck Accidents
Tampa Bay Brain Injury Lawyers Get Results
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) result from an impact or jolt to the head; this type of injury is a very real threat in a car or truck accident. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are the third overall leading cause of TBI and the second leading cause of TBI-related deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The force from a vehicle wreck can cause the brain to strike the walls of the skull or rotate inside the skull. In either case, the damage can be severe and permanent. Additionally, if an object penetrates the skull and strikes the brain, it could permanently alter brain cells, blood vessels and protective tissues around the brain.
Every head injury is a cause for concern. Our firm’s founder, Florida brain injury lawyer Richard M. Shapiro, has experience in the medical and legal worlds; he spent much of his early career as a research assistant at a Yale University teaching hospital, and he has 30 years of experience as an attorney. He understands the needs of those who suffer from brain injuries and knows how to fight for the compensation they need.
What Can a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Do for Me?
If you or someone you care about suffered from a serious brain injury after a car wreck, our attorneys can help you secure compensation by finding out who is responsible for your injuries and holding them accountable. Often, the insurance company representing the at-fault driver will call the victim and attempt to offer a settlement. Accepting this settlement is usually a mistake. Insurance companies are notorious for offering settlements that are far less than what you actually deserve.
A TBI can incur tremendous medical expenses over a long period, and a victim may need fulltime care for the rest of his or her life. TBI victims are entitled to compensation for their past and future medical expenses, lost wages, damages to their vehicles and the pain and suffering they endured. We have the knowledge and experience to fight for this compensation while you concentrate on recovering from your injuries. Perhaps most importantly, we do not accept payment unless we secure this compensation for you.
