Traumatic Brain Injury

Compassionate Personal Injury Lawyers Aggressively Representing the Interests of Accident Victims Across South Florida

A traumatic brain injury occurs when the head experiences a sudden jolt or blow. Often, traumatic brain injuries result from the brain colliding with the inside of the skull. Traumatic brain injuries can not only cause immediate damage to the brain but can also result in molecular changes in how the brain functions. Thus, the long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury can be severe. At the South Florida personal injury law firm of Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, our team of attorneys helps accident victims pursue the compensation they need and deserve after experiencing a traumatic brain injury.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Almost any type of accident involving force being applied to the head can result in a traumatic brain injury. Some of the most common causes of TBIs include:

At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, we have extensive experience representing individuals and families of those who suffered traumatic brain injuries. Regardless of the type of accident you were involved in, we can help you effectively pursue a claim for compensation against the at-fault party.

What to Do After Experiencing a Traumatic Brain Injury

If you were recently involved in an accident, you cannot rule out a traumatic brain injury without a doctor’s evaluation. Traumatic brain injuries are incredibly serious; however, there are often no immediate signs of brain damage. Thus, while feeling a bit groggy or out of it after an accident is to be expected, this could also be the sign of something much more serious. Below is a list of things to do if you were involved in an accident and suspect you may have suffered a TBI.

Obtain Medical Attention

If you hit your head in any type of accident, the first thing to do is to get checked out by a doctor. Although there may be no outwardly visible signs of a traumatic brain injury, doctors can determine the extent of any damage.

Document the Accident

Once you’ve received medical care, it is important that you write down everything you can remember about the accident. For example, if you slipped and fell in a grocery store, document the time, the location of the fall, the names of any witnesses and the names of any store employees who came to your assistance. If you are able to take any photographs of the area before you leave, even better.

Be Careful Who You Talk To After an accident, you will likely receive a call from an insurance company asking about the accident and your injuries. When talking to a representative with an insurance company, it is important to remember that anything you tell them can be used to deny or reduce the value of your claim. Insurance companies have one goal when talking to accidents victims; to make the case go away for as little money as possible. Contact an Experienced Brain Injury Lawyer

If the insurance company is giving you the run-around, or you just want to make sure that the offer they are making is a fair one, contact an experienced South Florida traumatic brain injury lawyer. An attorney will provide you with an honest assessment of your case, so you know what to expect from the insurance company.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
