Serious Injury Cases

Injuries, such as those causing brain damage or paralysis, often occur through no fault of the injured party. These are injuries on a different level; they do not heal and often take away physical abilities, brain and motor functions and the ability to enjoy life. As such, more care is required in structuring a settlement that will adequately care for your needs. In addition to medical bills, lost wages and other current expenses, we consult with expert associates to calculate the cost of your future health care needs, rehabilitation, retraining and the pain and suffering you have or will continue to have in the future.

A catastrophic injury can severely impact your life, but such an injury should be overcome and not become the sole focus of your life. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, you can prevail over your injury and continue to be a positive influence on those around you.

We, along with the help of experienced experts in medicine, life care and economics want to help individuals and their families after a devastating injury has affected their lives.

Our goal is to make a substantial financial difference in their lives and to restore, to the full extent of the
law, what has been taken from.

Thorough preparation and experience helps us to prepare your case.

If you have been involved in a catastrophic accident that was due

Tramatic Brain Injury

The Florida Department of Health, Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, defines Brain Injury as an
insult to the skull, brain or its covering, resulting from external trauma which produces an altered state of consciousness or anatomic, motor, sensory, cognitive, or behavioral deficit.

Traumatic Brain Injury is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities, with no two injuries ever being the same and as a result is generally not as obvious to the casual observer as most serious injuries.

Brain injuries are difficult circumstances for individuals and families to overcome and can have a devastating impact on victims and their families with the resulting medical expenses and complications in daily life.

Auto accidents and other vehicular accidents are the main causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries, but falls, industrial/occupational/construction accidents, sports injuries, and physical violent assaults are also common causes.

Both Severe, moderate and mild Traumaic Brain Injuries can cause serious medical conditions such as seizures, blurred vision, loss of memory, depression an personality disorders to name a few. Our firm works closely with highly trained associates, specialists in the fields of diagnosis and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injuries, experts in life care and economics who can help develop the evidence needed to win your case in court.

If you have an Injury Claim, do NOT delay

If you've been in a car, slip and fall or other accident and intend to make a claim, there are several reasons why you must consult an attorney as soon as possible. One reason is there are time limits (called "statutes of limitations") for making claims.

 

If you wait too long and the statute of limitations passes, you will be prevented from bringing your claim.  Courts strictly follow statutes of limitations. Recently, a woman hurt in a car accident made a claim one day after the statute of limitations passed. Even though this was a minor violation, a court dismissed her claim and she could not recover money for her injuries.  

 

Another reason why you should seek legal help immediately is that delay can hurt your case. As time passes, it becomes harder to gather evidence and to find and interview witnesses, who may move or forget the details of your accident.  Since waiting can cause your claim to be dismissed or hurt your chances of getting the maximum recovery, seek legal help as soon after an accident as possible.
