Brain Injury Attorney Daniel Young

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change the life of a victim forever.  Call Brain Injury Attorney Daniel Young for a Free Consulation. Brain injuries are unlike any other injury – because brain injuries can occur on a microscopic level, they are often not detected by CT scans, EEGs, and X-Rays. However, despite the lack of physical evidence, brain injuries have serious consequences.  Even individuals that do not suffer a loss of consciousness or only briefly lose consciousness can suffer permanent cognitive impairment.

Even more so than other serious injuries, experience is key when it comes to selecting an attorney to handle your Florida brain injury claim. Proper screening for brain injuries is essential in proving the effects of an injury and related brain injury disabilities.  We are committed to protecting the rights of brain injury victims, and will zealously work to ensure our clients are not denied compensation or medical treatment for their injuries.  We help our clients recover full and fair compensation for their injuries.

Causes of Brain Injuries

There are many different causes of traumatic brain injuries:

  • Car Accidents
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Blow to the head
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Flexion-extension injuries
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Medical error / medical negligence
  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents

Types of Brain Injuries

The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1.5 million people suffer brain injuries each year.  Of these, 50,000 people die and more than 80,000 people are permanently disabled each year.  It is estimated that there are more than 5 million people in the United States living with brain injury related disabilities. 

  • Concussion
  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Skull fracture or penetration injury
  • Coup or contrecoup injury
  • Shaken baby syndrome
  • Anoxic brain injury
  • Hypoxic brain injury

Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Closed head injuries are physically detectable only in an autopsy. However, a neuropsychologist can evaluate an injury victim and confirm the existence of a TBI.  Symptoms of brain injuries include:

  • Personality changes
  • Distractibility
  • Attention deficits
  • Frequent fatigue
  • Communication issues
  • Memory problems
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of muscle coordination

Because a patient may not remember the accident and may be in denial of the accident, interviews of family and friends can testify to personality changes present after the accident and other cognitive deficits or impairments. Close friends and relatives can provide corroborative evidence and paint a clear picture in court.

Compensation for Brain Injuries

Victims of brain injuries deserve to be fairly compensated for their loss. We will determine who wrongfully caused your injury and help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Other accident related expenses
