Fort Myers Head Injury Attorney

Head injuries can be caused by any number of traumatic incidents, such as traffic accidents, slip and falls, elevator or staircase collapses, golf cart accidents, bicycle crashes, boating accidents, and many others. Head injuries are serious: According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, traumatic brain injury (TBI) kills around 50,000 Americans every year. Deaths from head injuries, in fact, account for 34 percent of all traumatic deaths each year. Moreover, approximately 5.3 million people across the country currently live with a disability caused by TBI. If you have suffered from a severe head blow, see a doctor as soon as possible to diagnose any injuries and begin receiving treatment as quickly as possible. If your head injury was caused by the reckless or negligent behavior of someone else, a seasoned Florida head and brain injury attorney could help you recover damages.

The southern Fort Myers head injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A., have decades of experience securing compensation for head injuries from negligent defendants, employers, insurance providers, and others. A serious head injury can derail your life, limiting your ability to work and generating significant medical expenses. You may even have lost a loved one. You do not have to face these hardships alone. The compassionate and dedicated head injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. are prepared to help you recover the damages you are owed.

Signs of a Brain Injury

If you have experienced a sudden impact to your skull, you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Any injury to your head or neck may cause the brain to swell, bruise, bleed, or tear. You may not realize you have suffered TBI as you may not experience any pain, and the other symptoms range from mild to severe. Symptoms may arise several days after an impact occurs.

If you notice that you are suffering from any of the following symptoms after a sudden impact to your head, see a doctor immediately to test for a possible brain injury:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Vertigo or dizziness
  • Confusion, disorientation, or other trouble concentrating
  • Loss of consciousness for several seconds or even minutes
  • Memory loss, either short-term or long-term
  • Sensitivity to bright lights or noises
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Sudden mood changes or swings
  • Unusual fatigue or tiredness

Securing Compensation After a Head Injury

It is important to see a doctor as soon as possible after a head injury, especially if you notice any symptoms described above. A brain injury can quickly become much more severe if left undiagnosed and untreated. Also, if you need insurance coverage or damages from the at-fault party, it is important to get a diagnosis as soon as possible after an accident. If you wait too long, the insurance provider or defendant may claim that your head injury resulted from something other than the accident, cutting into your chances of a full recovery.

Speak with a knowledgeable Florida head injury attorney to ensure that you are prepared to fight for full monetary compensation for your harm should any parties resist paying you the amounts you are owed.
