An impact causing brain trauma can be highly consequential if not life-threatening. One of the scariest aspects of brain injuries is that they can take months or years to manifest. The degree of trauma the brain experiences in an accident can leave a person with debilitating and life-long injuries.

If you or a loved one suffered a head injury in an accident, a Gainesville traumatic brain injury lawyer could offer their assistance in holding the responsible party legally accountable. A dedicated catastrophic injury attorney could help investigate the accident, determine which parties are at fault, and help you pursue an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. In either scenario, an attorney could help you seek compensation for your financial losses and the pain and suffering you have experienced.

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Trauma

Violent blows to the head or high-intensity impacts or jolts are often the cause of head trauma. As the brain comes into contact with the skull, it can bruise, bleed, and nerve fibers can tear.

In other situations, a skull fracture can cause broken shards to penetrate brain tissue. Additionally, oxygen deprivation and exposure to toxic substances can cause brain damage. Serious brain injuries can result from:

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) symptoms vary depending on which part of the brain is affected, whether the damage is localized or widespread, and the extent of the damage. Mild brain trauma can cause brief confusion and headaches. Serious injuries may result in unconsciousness, memory loss, coma, long-term impairment, or death. Depending on the nature and severity of the traumatic brain injury that a person suffers, a Gainesville lawyer could build a case the demands appropriate compensation.

Resolving a TBI Cases in Gainesville

A prospective plaintiff should consult a Gainesville traumatic brain injury attorney about their case. A lawyer could listen to an individual’s story and investigate the facts further. If a case is well-suited for legal resolution, an attorney could explain to a claimant which options they have.

One option, depending on the circumstances of the injury, is to negotiate for an insurance settlement. In car accidents, medical malpractice, or premises liability cases, this may be a particularly appealing option.

One advantage of proceeding with an insurance company negotiation is that it can bring swifter resolution for a brain injury claimant. If, on the other hand, parties cannot reach a settlement or the defendants give an offer that is less than what the case may be worth, legal counsel could prepare to take this person’s case to court.

Proceeding to litigation means that an attorney has a lot of preparation to do. In most instances, the personal injury lawsuit proceeds under a theory of negligence, which means that a plaintiff is arguing that because of the defendant’s carelessness or recklessness, they suffered head trauma and consequent damages.

A plaintiff must, by a particular standard of proof, convince the court of the defendant’s negligence. A jury will be responsible for determining who is liable for the incident and what amount of damages the plaintiff may receive.
