Head Injuries Explained
A violent blow to the head, neck, or upper body can cause the brain to slide back and forth forcefully against the inner walls of the skull. The sudden speeding up or slowing down of the head, which occurs when a person is violently shaken or bounced around during a car accident, also can cause this type of injury.
Any of these injuries can briefly or permanently affect brain function.
Symptoms of Head and Concussion Injuries
The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up for days. That’s why it is vital that if you hit your head, or were struck or violently shaken, you should seek medical attention immediately.
Immediate signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:
- Amnesia, as it relates to the traumatic event
- Headaches or head pressure
- Ringing in the ears
- Slurred speech

Delayed symptoms may include:

Since head injuries can be caused by numerous incidents and activities, head and concussion cases often are the most complicated cases to prove. This is just one of the reasons why our firm believes victims must hire a head and concussion injury lawyer in Florida sooner than later. Florida’s statute of limitations requires one to file a lawsuit within four years of the accident, so contact the firm now for the help you need.
We Conduct a Prompt Investigation
With any case, time is of the essence. In addition to conducting a detailed and timely probe, we also may:
- Interview witnesses before their memories fade.
- Consult medical professionals, such as neurologists, therapists, and behavioral specialists.
- Preserve vital evidence.
- Ensure all victims get necessary, proper medical attention.
We Stay a Step Ahead of Insurance Companies
Many insurance companies will employ private investigators to visit injury sites, to strengthen their versions of how accidents occurred. Having a lawyer in place will help level the playing field when this occurs.
Also, we will handle all discussions and negotiations with insurance companies. In many cases, insurance companies contact victims immediately. When they talk to you, it may seem like they are on your side. But they are not. Their job is to minimize insurance payouts.
When you retain our services, we do all of the talking for you. This will ensure you no incorrect or misleading information is provided.
We Negotiate With Your Best Interest in Mind
From the start, we work to get an outcome that is best for you. We negotiate aggressively with insurance companies in an attempt to get you the best possible settlement. If insurers fail to offer a fair settlement, we stand ready to move forward to trial.
