Florida Brain Injury Lawyer

Florida Brain Injury LawyerBrain injury survivors often suffer severe and lifelong disabilities and impairment. This can make it difficult to work, provide for your family, or even enjoy life.

Unfortunately, insurance companies also know how much a brain injury will change your life. As such, they may offer you a low settlement quickly in the hopes that you will sign before you truly understand the full extent of your injuries. They may even pressure you into signing by using a “take it or leave it” approach. You don’t have to accept this.

When this happens, you want someone on your side who can fight for your rights and your future. An experienced Florida brain injury attorney from Meldon Law can negotiate with insurance companies while you focus your energy on what truly matters – your health and your recovery.

You Don’t Want to Handle a Brain Injury Case on Your Own

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect every aspect of your life, even if you weren’t the one injured. You need to focus on your recovery or caring for your injured loved one. You have enough on your shoulders without the burden of a legal battle with insurers who want to pay you less than you deserve—or nothing at all.

To successfully fight insurers, you need to have an in-depth knowledge of the legal process, an understanding of legal jargon, and a willingness to fight tooth and nail for what you need. You want to leave this to someone with the experience, knowledge, and skills to get you the settlement or award you need.

We Are the Florida Brain Injury Attorneys You Want on Your Team

At Meldon Law, our experience and results speak for themselves. We have decades of success representing accident survivors who suffered brain injuries throughout Florida. Our attorneys understand the issues that brain injury survivors face and the extensive compensation their injuries require. We know you may feel that your life will never be the same and that your injuries may affect every aspect of your future.

Our extensive knowledge of traumatic brain injury cases is why we fight aggressively from the start. We don’t let insurance companies offer insufficient settlements or pressure our clients into accepting less than they deserve. This is just one reason so many injured Florida accident survivors choose us to represent them after a devastating crash. Our brain injury attorneys offer the compassionate support and legal guidance you need to move forward in life.

How We Help With Your Florida Brain Injury Case

At Meldon Law, we know that brain injury survivors need a significant amount of compensation to help them deal with their injuries and future. Brain injury treatment is often lifelong and can result in substantial medical expenses. These costs can quickly exhaust most medical insurance policies and put victims and their families in financial distress. Without help, they may not receive the care they need throughout their lives.

Our brain injury attorneys can help you recover the money you need to pay for:

  • Medical treatment expenses
  • Long-term care
  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Specialized medical equipment
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of benefits
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost quality of life
  • Pain and suffering

Unfortunately, not all brain injury victims survive their injuries. If you lost a loved one, please accept our condolences. We would be honored to fight for justice for your loved one through a wrongful death claim.

We know that insurance companies do not willingly offer traumatic brain injury survivors or families of lost loved ones what they need and deserve. This is why we fight aggressively every step of the way. Our personal injury attorneys work closely with your medical team to understand the full impact your injuries will have on your future. You can rest assured that we will fight for you to have the compensation to tackle whatever life brings.

We Keep Track of Deadlines in Your Brain Injury Case

Florida law limits how long you have to file a brain injury lawsuit. Per Florida Statute § 95.11, you only have two years to file a lawsuit for your injuries. If you fail to file within that time, you may be unable to recover the compensation you deserve. Two years might seem like a long time, but it can take months or longer for you to get a clear prognosis or reach maximum medical improvement. It also takes time to build a strong case for compensation.

The earlier you get in touch with us, the better.

We Take TBI Cases With No Upfront Fees

You have enough expenses on your plate. We know you don’t need any more. This is why we take your case on a contingency-fee basis. You don’t pay us any upfront fees, and you only pay us if and when we win your case.

There is no financial risk when you hire us to seek justice for you.

Understanding Brain Injuries and Their Effect on Your Life

Any traumatic blow to the head can cause a brain injury. These injuries may damage the delicate tissues and structures inside of the head in a variety of ways. From swelling and inflammation to bleeding, the results are devastating. When the brain suffers an injury, it can cause significant impairment and permanent disability. The type of impairment you suffer depends largely on the severity and location of the injury.

Brain injuries range from mild concussions to more serious and life-threatening brain injuries. And many don’t survive these injuries. In 2021, an average of 190 people lost their lives daily to TBIs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Not all brain injuries are severe, however. In fact, nearly 75% of brain injuries are milder forms known as concussions, according to Cleveland Clinic. These types of injuries are often common after sporting events and car accidents. While some of these injuries heal quickly and with minimal treatment, many concussion victims will suffer from long-term damage.

Post-concussion syndrome is a real and serious issue that often affects concussion victims, making it difficult for them to work and enjoy their lives for months and sometimes years.

For this reason, we do not believe that any brain injury is minor. Our traumatic brain injury lawyers aggressively advocate for our clients from the start to ensure that they have the compensation they need to tackle whatever complications may arise.

Types of Brain Injuries

There are numerous types of brain injuries. These injuries differ based on their location and the type of harm suffered. In general, the most common types of brain injuries include the following.

  • Concussions. These milder brain injuries are common after sports events and car accidents.
  • Coup-contrecoup brain injury. This occurs when the brain suffers damage on both sides from hitting the skull with force.
  • Brain bleeds. Any type of injury can result in bleeding. Brain bleeds can cause clots, and they can also impact the brain’s ability to oxygenate, resulting in significant impairment.
  • Brain stem tears. Brain stem tears are often life-threatening and fatal.
  • Penetrating injury. This is an open head injury caused when something penetrates the skull and damages the brain.

TBI Signs and Symptoms to Look Out For

Traumatic brain injury symptoms aren’t always apparent. It can take anywhere from hours to weeks for signs to appear. It’s integral that you seek medical care if you or a loved one experiences any of these symptoms after an accident:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness and/or balance issues
  • Vomiting
  • Confusion and/or memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Irritability, depression, and/or mood swings
  • Slurred speech
  • Ringing in the ears

Getting medical attention will help you get the treatment you need and link your injuries to your accident.
