Anything can happen in a person's life in Florida each day. Generally, no major events occur. People go to their jobs, do their work and go home for the evening. They also may enjoy participating in recreational activities in their free time and spend time with friends and family. However, in an instant, all this could change. If the person suffers a traumatic brain injury as the result of an accident, the person's life may never be the same.
Initially a traumatic brain injury may put a person in the hospital with a concussion or even a coma. However, depending on the severity of the injury, the person may never enjoy the same life that they had before. They could lose motor skills, have trouble concentrating or forming certain thoughts. They may also suffer certain emotional issues, as well, that can affect everyone around them.
The recovery time from a traumatic brain injury can take a long time and involve the services of various medical providers. Each of these services can be expensive, especially given the fact that these services may be necessary for months and even years. The person actually may need certain services for the rest of his or her life. In addition to medical expenses, the person may not be able to work while he or she is recovering. This means that they will not be earning an income, on top of having to pay the medical bills.
People who suffer these injuries may be entitled to compensation in some cases. If another person was responsible for the accident, that person may need to pay the victim for any losses and medical bills resulting from the accident. At our firm, we understand the devastating effects of a traumatic brain injury and have handled many of these cases.
