Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer

Brain injuries are often debilitating, with life-changing consequences for the victim and their loved ones.

Having a traumatic brain injury dramatically impacts a victim’s daily activities. A brain injury can influence a person’s decision-making abilities and personality. In severe cases, victims may no longer be able to take care of themselves, putting the whole family in a very difficult position.

Any person who has suffered such an injury and believes they are entitled to compensation in Orlando, Florida should get in touch with a personal injury attorney. An experienced attorney will take care of the legal aspects so that victims and their families can focus on recovery.

Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

Any type of head injury can have severe consequences. These types of accidents happen in the US every day, with direct and indirect effects on the economy and healthcare system.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has a variety of statistics to keep in mind regarding brain injuries:

  • Every year, approximately 500,000 people go to the hospital because of head injuries
  • Car accidents account for more than two-thirds of all head injuries
  • Men are two times more likely than women to sustain a head injury
  • Seven million brain injuries occur throughout the United States each year
  • One out of every 220 people in the United States is currently suffering from the effects of a head injury

Victims are not alone: according to the statistics, many other families have experienced the pain of a TBI and gone through the lawsuit process to collect the compensation they need.

What Causes a Brain Injury?

One can sustain a brain injury in a number of ways including:

  • Car accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Aviation accidents
  • Meningitis
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Truck accidents
  • Railroad accidents
  • Boating accidents

Even what seems like a minor incident can sometimes cause a crippling TBI. Any hit to the head requires medical attention right away.

What are Symptoms of a Brain Injury?

There are a number of symptoms that can arise from sustaining a traumatic brain injury. Some effects are obvious, but others may take weeks or even months to manifest. Only a medical practitioner can assure a clean bill of health.

Some key indications of serious brain injuries are:

  • Language problems
  • Slurred speech
  • Forgetfulness and confusion
  • Issues in social situations
  • Difficulty concentrating and thinking
  • Problem-solving difficulties
  • Difficulty learning new information

Construction Worker Injury Case

The Umansky Law Firm took the case of a young father who was a construction worker injured while on the job. Our client’s injury was sustained while constructing a new home in an up and coming subdivision. After an investigation, the lawyers at the Umansky Law Firm determined that the construction company had failed to install a barricade on the second floor of the new home to keep the workers safe. Due to this negligence, our client fell and sustained severe injuries. Our client fractured his leg and had to undergo two surgeries due to the accident. As a result of the operations, our client — the family’s primary wage earner — missed several months of work. The Umansky Law Firm demanded that the named defendants take responsibility for their negligence, but they refused. As a result, we filed suit and vigorously pursued a claim against their insurance coverage and successfully reached a six-figure settlement.

Recovering from a TBI is expensive, placing more stress on families who have already been affected. Making sure that medical bills are covered, along with any damages for pain and suffering, is the best chance that victims and families have for restoring their quality of life. Victims affected by their TBIs should understand that acquiring a lawyer will give them the best chance to recover the compensation that they need to move forward.
