Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys in Tampa
Compassionate Representation for Injury Victims
Our brains are incredible machines that many of us take for granted until there are complications with brain function. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect a person in seemingly countless ways, physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. After suffering a TBI, your life could be turned upside down. The impact of a brain injury can be long-lasting if not life-long.
If someone else’s negligence led to you or your loved one’s TBI, you have avenues to pursue legal action and receive compensation for the damages you have suffered. In the midst of this overwhelming and unfortunate situation, the last thing you should have to worry about is how you will pay your medical bills or provide for your family. The Tampa brain injury attorneys at Harmon Parker, P.A. can take that burden off your shoulders.
The Lasting Impact of a Brain Injury
Brain injuries sometimes take days if not weeks to reveal themselves after an accident. That is why you should always seek medical attention immediately following an accident, even if you do not feel any pain or notice any symptoms.
Over time, those who have suffered a brain injury may begin to notice:
- Changes in personality
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of consciousness
- Persistent headaches
- Loss of coordination or muscle function
- Disorientation and confusion
These symptoms can be a sign of a serious and potentially even life-threatening brain injury.
Many people who are diagnosed with TBI must completely alter their lifestyle and undergo extensive, ongoing treatment or therapy. You might not be able to return or work, or you may have to enter into a new line of work. You might require an expensive medical device, which could come with additional expenses such as ramps in the home to accommodate a wheelchair. Many brain injury victims also face mental incapacities and disabilities.
Traumatic Brain Injury Information and Guidelines
After suffering a traumatic brain injury, or seeing a loved one suffer, you likely are in search of information for how to handle the case as well as what the future may hold. We’d like to offer our guidance and provide the necessary information you require.
Immediately following the accident, here are some steps to take to help the victim achieve their best chance of healing:
Stabilizing the victim
Seeking immediate medical attention to preserve brain function
Locate medical professionals to assist with the long-term recovery
The most important guideline you need to follow is that the victim needs medical treatment at once. Even an individual who suffers what seems to be a minor concussion should be taken to the doctor at once for testing and evaluation.
Once the patient is stable, physicians will want to begin rehabilitation to assist with the long-term healing process. These professionals will work with the patient to relearn basic and important daily activities, such as caring for one’s self. The road to recovery after suffering a brain injury is long and will require patient navigation by the victim, friends, and loved ones.
As brain injury legal specialists, we have the knowledge to help you pursue fair and full compensation.
