Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Jacksonville Injury Attorney for Head Injury Victims
The brain is extremely sensitive to impacts, and damage is often life-threatening
and irreversible. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in
a preventable accident, you may be faced with enormous medical bills and
long term health complications. Many people in your position are under-compensated
for their injuries or receive no settlement at all.
You should be allowed to focus on recovering, rather than being forced
to spend your time
dealing with insurance companies who may try to reduce, delay or deny your claim.
At Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., we are former prosecutors, dedicated to representing
the rights of the injured. Any type of blow to the head is capable of
causing brain damage, whether it is a concussion or a traumatic brain
injury. Even if you were not knocked unconscious, you may have suffered
a brain injury, and it is advisable to seek proper medical attention for
a diagnosis. Treatment can be outrageously expensive, and you may be losing
income while you recover. It is vital to do everything you can to achieve
If the accident was caused by another person's negligence, you may
be entitled to full compensation for every aspect of the injury, including
your pain and suffering. In addition to the pain of the initial injury,
you may be facing a lifetime of headaches, difficulty with physical coordination,
memory loss and other cognitive difficulties. If you lost a family member
to a brain injury, you should not hesitate to pursue a
wrongful death claim.
Fighting for Compensation
Brain injuries are common in
motorcycle accidents and
bicycle accidents, even when the rider is wearing a helmet.
Construction accidents also frequently result in injuries to the brain, such as when falling
objects or carelessly handled tools strike the victim's head. It is
also possible to receive an injury of this type in a
boating accident, when a partial drowning deprives the brain of its oxygen supply. Brain
damage is often permanent, and the victim may be forced to cope with the
symptoms for a lifetime.
