Brain Injury Settlements And Values In Florida

Brain Injury Settlements And Values In FloridaA traumatic brain injury isn’t the type of injury you’re always going to see. Because this type of injury isn’t like a broken bone or a large cut, it’s up to the person who has been injured and their own symptoms to show just how severely their accident may have impacted them. With traumatic brain injuries of any type and any severity level, treating the injury is often difficult, and those who have experienced traumatic brain injuries may also experience lifelong symptoms to go with them.

Due to a traumatic brain injury’s nature of lasting and prolonged symptoms, these are injuries that can cause a person to miss work for long periods of time, become disabled, and require repeated medical visits or treatments. Without some type of compensation should your injury be caused by the negligence of another party, a traumatic brain injury can take over your life not only physically, but financially as well. As medical bills continue to stack up, and you continue to be unable to work due to the consequences you’re experiencing due to the injury, it won’t take long to find yourself under-water, so to speak, in financial debt.

At GetMeJustice.com, we can help to lessen the financial load of a traumatic brain injury. By seeking compensation from the negligent party in your accident, you can have the means you need to cover all of the new expenses you’re now experiencing, and this can make recovering or treating your brain injury much easier and far less stressful. There are many different types of compensation you may be able to seek, and outlining those which may be relevant to your case is a great step in finally getting the settlement you deserve.

Some types of compensation that go along with traumatic brain injuries in the state of Florida are:


  • Special damages – Special damages are considered “out-of-pocket” damages, and these are awarded as part of your compensation to recoup any losses you may have experienced due to your injury. Damages such as lost wages due to lost work, a lost earning capacity, medical bills, property damage, and funeral costs in cases of wrongful death can all be covered by your compensation under special damages.

  • General damages – With general damages, you can also be compensated for non-out of pocket losses due to experiencing a traumatic brain injury. With general damages, some of the things that may be covered in your compensation are pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, loss of reputation, shock and anxiety, or mental anguish.


Due to the severity of traumatic brain injuries in terms of how they affect one’s life, it’s no surprise that these are often some of the largest personal injury settlements found in the state of Florida. In one recent case, a Florida man who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury resulting in permanent impairment due to a car accident with a commercial vehicle received $26 million in damages after seeking compensation. While not all cases are this extreme in terms of settlement amounts, it is not rare to receive a large settlement if it is determined your brain injury was caused by the negligence of another party.

At GetMeJustice.com, our personal injury lawyers want to help you with getting the settlement you need after experiencing a traumatic brain injury. Because these injuries will often leave a lasting impression on an individual for many years to come, the compensation received can be a huge help in their recovery.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
