Brain Injury Archives

A brain injury may have delayed symptoms

Among the many potential injuries a Florida resident could suffer in a car accident, an injury to the brain may be among the most terrifying because there is no way to predict the outcome. A brain injury may not even reveal symptoms for days after the accident, which is why a medical exam is critical even for those who seem to be uninjured. Untreated injuries to the head can have life-altering consequences.

Riding a scooter could place individuals at risk for brain injury

Dockless rechargeable electric scooters are appearing in Florida cities and across the country, including multiple cities in Florida. Individuals have the ability to rent available scooters to assist in a commute around town through the use of a smartphone app. It is expected that scooter riders will experience risks similar to what bicycle riders and pedestrians may face when sharing the road with motor vehicles. Riders may be subject to brain injury, bodily injury and/or death if struck by a vehicle.

Brain injury: Family had difficult time with insurance claim

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, the insurance company for the driver deemed at fault is typically responsible for damages on both vehicles and documented personal injury claims, up to the limits of the policy. Most policies have a limit on medical expenses that will be paid, and one Florida family became familiar with policy limits over the last several years. Sadly, their daughter suffered a serious brain injury when she was involved in a car accident, and they had a difficult time navigating a claim against the negligent driver's insurance.

Brain injuries can affect victims long-term

As Florida readers are aware, the impact of a car accident can last for months or sometimes years. This is especially true for individuals who experience some type of brain injury in the accident. Depending on the severity of the impact and various other factors, head trauma can affect a person's ability to do normal tasks and enjoy a certain quality of life.
