What is a traumatic brain injury according to Florida Laws?
Traumatic brain injury is most often caused by a violent blow to the head, such as in a car accident or an industrial or construction accident. The injury commonly affects one or more areas of the brain and results in significant loss of memory, vision, and the ability to communicate. A traumatic brain injury can occur when a person suffers a concussion (caused by a violent shaking of the brain that disturbs brain function) or a contusion (a hemorrhage inside the brain). The severity of a traumatic brain injury depends largely on what area of the brain is affected and how much damage was done. While a mild brain injury can cause a person to become disoriented or suffer headaches, a traumatic brain injury results in more serious problems and may be the basis for a personal injury lawsuit.If you have additional questions about Traumatic Brain Injury or if you have been injured and would like to arrange your free consultation with our Orlando Brain Injury Lawyers call 407-490-1271 or fill out the free consultation form found on this page.
