Head trauma can be severe and devastating. If you suffer a head injury, you may be left with chronic pain, restricted mobility, and cognitive limitations. You may also be overwhelmed by ongoing medical care bills and other expenses.
However, you could pursue recovery to ease the financial burden. You might be entitled to compensation if you were hurt in an accident caused by another person’s negligence. A Tampa head injury lawyer may file a lawsuit on your behalf. Call our law offices to discuss how we can assist.
Car Accidents Can Cause Serious Head Trauma
During a collision, your head may hit the steering wheel, dashboard, or window. A common object, such as a water bottle, may turn into a projectile and cause serious harm if it strikes your head. Furthermore, if your brain strikes the inside of your skull, it may cause debilitating injuries.
In addition, car crashes can cause several types of injuries, including:
- Brain bruising and swelling
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Permanent brain damage
- Lacerations of the brain tissue
How To Recognize the Signs of a Head Trauma
If you suffer head trauma, you may have experienced a loss of consciousness, a loss of sensation in parts of your body, and balance and coordination declines. Other possible symptoms include:
- Blurred vision or loss of vision
- Ringing in the ears
Depending on the type of brain injury, you could also experience confusion, amnesia, slurred speech, concentration issues, and personality changes. Even if you suffered a mild head injury, seek immediate medical treatment to avoid complications.

A Tampa Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Our team of lawyers can review your case and advise on your legal rights. We can review all available options for recovery and help you make an informed decision. Whether you pursue a brain injury claim or file a lawsuit against the liable party, you have our support.
Negotiate With the Insurance Company
Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. All drivers are required to have an auto insurance policy that includes personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. A person hurt in a car crash can seek financial compensation for medical expenses and lost income from their PIP, no matter who was liable for the accident.
Our personal injury law firm can handle all communication with insurance companies. We will always represent your best interest before insurance agents. Our lawyers are experienced negotiators willing to fight for the compensation you need to rebuild your life.
In some cases, a person’s injuries are severe, and the amount of PIP coverage available is insufficient to compensate a victim adequately. Under those circumstances, the victim may file a personal injury lawsuit against the individual who caused the accident.
Identify the At-Fault Party
Brain injury attorneys can read the police report to determine what happened and whether an officer gave the other driver a ticket for violating a traffic law. If the police officer who responded to the scene of the accident could not determine who was at fault, we might have to investigate further.
Our lawyers can interview you, your passengers, and any witnesses who saw the collision. We can also find out if a camera at an intersection, a business, or a home, recorded the crash.
If the other motorist was liable for the crash and your injuries, we could file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to seek compensation for your medical treatment and lost income. You may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, which is not available from PIP.
Understand Florida’s Comparative Negligence Law
In many cases, both drivers are liable for a crash. For example, one driver may change lanes without signaling. Still, the other may fail to hit the brakes and avoid a collision because they are distracted by a conversation with a passenger or are reaching for an object on the floor.
You may be entitled to compensation if you share the blame for the crash. Florida Statutes § 768.81 is a comparative negligence law that allows head or brain injury victims to seek reduced financial awards. These rewards will then reflect your liability percentage for your accident.
File Within Florida’s Statute of Limitations
According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3), you have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. You may think there is no reason to rush to hire a brain injury lawyer, especially if the accident happened recently, but these cases can be complex.
Furthermore, you might not have as much time as you think. Under certain circumstances, you might have a closer deadline to meet. After evaluating the case, your lawyer can determine exactly how much time you have to file.

A Tampa Head Injury Lawyer Can Help You Recover
Catastrophic injuries can have a long-lasting impact. The medical bills might be staggering if you suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash. Furthermore, you may be permanently disabled and never work again in your chosen profession.
You may find another kind of work to support your family or be so severely injured that you cannot work at all. You may also be unable to perform routine activities, communicate with family members and friends, and enjoy the hobbies and relationships you used to cherish.
Personal injury lawyers can help you seek justice by filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Our team can work to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, but we can take your case to trial, if necessary, to obtain maximum compensation.
