Causes and Results of Head & Concussion Injuries
Head, concussion, and traumatic brain injuries account for more than 30 percent of injury-related fatalities in the United States each year, based on data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The CDC lists some of the most common ways that these injuries occur, which include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- The impact of a falling object
- Participating in sports
- Defective safety products
CDC data shows that, among those people who suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), only 26 percent saw an improvement in their condition. The remainder stayed the same, got worse, or died. More than half can never return to work.
Because of the potential for dire consequences from a head injury, you should seek medical treatment immediately and call a lawyer at Anidjar & Levine for help right away.

Our attorneys and legal team provide representation for clients who suffered a head or concussion injury in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We have experience with Florida Statue 768.81 and how it relates to this type of case.
We can analyze the details of your injury accident to determine whose negligent behavior led to your injuries. Once we make that determination, we will begin the process of documenting your case and submitting it to the at-fault party’s insurance company.
