Knowing When A TBI Lawyer Is Needed

TBI LawyerEvery year, thousands of people in Florida are injured through no fault of their own. While physical recovery is a challenge on its own, additional issues like coming up with the money for medical bills and recovering from lost wages can add undue stress to those who have been injured. While every injury can be serious, there is no doubt that injuries involving the brain are among the most serious.

Accidents that involve traumatic brain injury – or TBI – will often require a lawyer who is experienced at handling those types of injuries. The specifics of the injuries and the severity of the situation mean that a TBI lawyer will have additional challenges that others may simply not have to deal with.  But one of the biggest hurdles is just figuring out whether or not a TBI lawyer is needed.

In most cases, there are a few signs that can help suggest that brain injury has occurred. It's important to note that even when an injury occurs and doesn't seem to have damaged the brain, TBI may still be present. It's all too common for accident victims to assume they're not injured because a direct impact to the head didn't occur. But in some instances, nothing more than the sudden acceleration, deceleration, and force of impact is enough to damage the brain by moving it within the skull

With that in mind, the following are a few of the keys that could suggest that a TBI injury has occurred. Not only should a TBI lawyer be consulted, but seeking medical attention is an absolute must if you notice these symptoms.

  • Memory Issues – Any shifts in your ability to remember things could be a sign of TBI. Short term memory like remembering numbers or names, repeating yourself, or more could be a symptom. Another common symptom is being unable to remember the accident or the days just before the accident.

  • Mood Changes – If you notice that your mood swings much more rapidly than it once did, you could have TBI as well. Increased irritability, depression, anxiety, or nervousness are all signs that you may have suffered a brain injury.

  • Perception Changes – Increased sensitivity to light and sound, blurry vision, or smelling scents that aren't there are all signs that TBI could be an issue.

  • Difficulty Thinking – Problems thinking clearly, concentrating, and doing simple mental tasks like basic addition are potential symptoms of TBI.

  • Sleep Disruption – Sleep issues could include trouble falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or even sleeping more than usual. If any changes in your sleep patterns exist it could be a sign of TBI.

  • Other Issues – Other physical symptoms can include vertigo, dizziness, vomiting, severe fatigue, headaches, tingling in the arms, weakness in the limbs, and more.

If you notice that you're experiencing any of these issues you need to visit a health care professional as soon as possible. They may discover that TBI is present and that steps must be taken to address the issue. Once your health is assured, your next step should be to find a competent, qualified TBI lawyer who can help with your case.  A good TBI lawyer will be able to help determine who is at fault for your injuries and help get you the financial compensation you deserve.

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.
