Jacksonville Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Jacksonville Injury Attorney for Head Injury Victims
Brain injuries are among the most devastating and traumatic injuries that anyone can endure. Far too often, these types of injuries are caused by what should be a preventable accident spurred on by reckless or negligent behavior from outside the injured person's control. The medical costs of treating a traumatic brain injury can be incredibly expensive, and often result in long-term and even permanent health complications.
You shouldn't have to worry about the cost of your recovery. You should be able to focus the recovery itself, rather than being forced to spend your time dealing with insurance companies who may try to reduce, delay, or deny your claim. Our Jacksonville brain injury lawyers can guard your rights and help you pursue maximum compensation.
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 a settlement.
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. Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Slip and falls
- Auto accidents
- Falling objects
- Concussive blasts
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 contact our skilled Jacksonville personal injury attorneys 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.
