Anytime that you hit your head, you may have a brain injury; even if you don't experience any symptoms right away. A brain injury can cause severe changes in your personality, behavior, and abilities to accomplish even the simplest of tasks. Brain injuries are some of the most complicated cases that our Boca Raton injury attorneys handle because insurance companies will often try to claim that the symptoms a victim is experiencing aren't connected to a brain injury. Because of this difficulty, we encourage anyone that has suffered a head injury to visit a physician immediately and begin to document what happened to you.
After contacting your doctor, please contact our Florida injury attorneys at Canter Law. We have the extensive experience that you need in order to properly navigate your case and help you get the compensation you deserve. Call us today at 561-447-4500.
What Causes a Brain Injury?
A brain injury can literally occur anytime that you strike your head. In particular, if the impact from your accident causes your brain to actually shift within your skull a brain injury will likely result. Brain injuries can be as simple as a concussion and as traumatic as a lift-altering, horrible injury that will affect your life forever.
Brain injuries can occur from any of the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Premises liability accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Sports-related injuries
If you were injured in an automobile accident because the other driver was being reckless or negligent, then you have recourse to file a lawsuit for your brain injury. The same is true if you suffer a brain injury because a person or company didn't properly maintain their property or construction site. Brain injury due to medical malpractice can occur very frequently because of a birth injury, so you must document everything that occurred to your newborn and contact our Boca Raton attorneys immediately for help.
With the increased awareness of sports-related injuries, concussions are now in the foreground of all parents' minds. If your child suffers a concussion while playing sports, you must insist upon the proper concussion protocol at a hospital and ensure that their brain is properly evaluated and treated prior to returning to activity.
How Our Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help
If you or a family member has suffered a brain injury, there are steps to take to ensure that you can get coverage. Your insurance company will undoubtedly try to avoid paying for your medical bills, rehabilitation, and life-long care if you don't have the proper documentation to show that you have a brain injury and it was due to the negligence of another. Therefore, anytime that you're injured, immediately seek out the care of a physician, specifically a neurologist for proper evaluation. Then, allow our brain injury lawyers at Canter Law to interface with your insurance company and begin the process of getting you the maximum settlement or award possible in court.
We will communicate with you every step of the way and want you as involved as possible during your case. We also operate on a contingency-fee basis which means that you don't pay anything upfront and only pay us our fee and reimburse us for our expenses if we win your case. At Canter Law, our attorneys are here for you and your family, so please don't hesitate to contact us for help. Call us at 561-447-4500.
