How a Car Crash Can Cause Serious Head Injuries
In an accident, a person’s head may hit the steering wheel, dashboard, or window. A common object, such as a water bottle, may turn into a projectile and may cause serious injury if it strikes a person in the head.
Car crashes can cause several types of head injuries. Concussions are common, as are brain bruising and swelling. If a person’s brain strikes the inside of the skull, that may cause debilitating injuries.
An individual who has suffered head trauma may lose consciousness. A victim may experience a loss of sensation in parts of the body and declines in balance and coordination. Pain, fatigue, lightheadedness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, seizures, coma, and paralysis are all possible. A person who has suffered a head injury may also experience confusion, amnesia, difficulty speaking, problems with concentration, and changes in personality, depending on the type of injury and its severity.

How a Tampa Head Injury Lawyer May Be Able to Help You
When it comes to car accidents, Florida is a no-fault state. All drivers are required to have an auto insurance policy that includes personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. A person who is hurt in a car crash must seek compensation for medical bills and lost income from his or her PIP coverage, no matter who was liable for the accident.
In some cases, a person’s injuries are severe, and the amount of PIP coverage available is not enough to adequately compensate a victim. Under those circumstances, a person who was injured may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the individual who caused the accident.
The team at The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can review your case and advise you on your legal rights. We can start by reading the police report to find out 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 was unable to determine who was at fault, we might have to investigate to figure that out. We can interview you and your passengers and any witnesses who saw the collision occur. We can also find out if a camera at an intersection or at a business or home in the area recorded the crash.
If the other driver was liable for the crash and your injuries were serious, we may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the other motorist to seek compensation for your medical bills and lost income. You may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, which is not available from personal injury protection.
In many cases, both drivers are liable for a crash. For example, one driver may change lanes without signaling, but the other may fail to hit the brakes and avoid a collision because he or she is distracted by a conversation with a passenger or is reaching for an object that fell on the floor.
You may be entitled to compensation if you share some of the blame for the accident. Florida has a comparative negligence law, Florida Statutes § 768.81, that allows a person who was injured to seek a reduced financial award that reflects that individual’s percentage of liability for an accident.
A member of our staff can discuss what you have been through and how we may be able to help. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733.
