Orlando Brain Injuries

The human brain is incredibly complex, and despite the advances of modern medicine, much of the brain remains a mystery. Unfortunately, this also means the medical community often struggles to understand, diagnose, and treat brain injuries.

A serious brain injury can change the victim's life forever. Even a moderate brain injury can impact your work performance, your relationships, and your quality of life. Yet despite such effects, proving the existence of a moderate brain injury can often prove a challenge.

That is why at Morgan & Morgan in Orlando, Florida, our brain injury attorneys rely upon a distinguished network of cognitive, neurological, and psychological experts to vindicate victims of cerebral trauma — and help them and their families receive the compensation they deserve.

What Causes a Brain Injury?

A direct and significant impact to the victim's head, such as in an auto accident or by falling construction material, is what typically comes to mind. But the medical community is coming to understand just how sensitive the brain can be and that significant brain injuries can be caused by seemingly moderate or even minor impacts.

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, a direct impact to the head is not necessarily the only cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Significant wounding of the brain can also be caused by periods of rapid acceleration, deceleration, or change in direction. This is because the organ sits inside the skull surrounded by a cushion of fluid. Also, the brain is not rigidly attached to the skull at any point and thus can be thrown against the inside of the skull and injured when subjected to a high degree of inertial force.

This type of brain injury is often referred to as a closed-head injury. A doctor can explain more thoroughly how a brain injury can occur even when there is no actual impact to the head and no external head injury.

The Impact of TBI

The impact of traumatic brain injury can vary and may not be noticed immediately. While victims of severe TBI in Florida may suffer significant cognitive impairments, victims of less severe TBI can still experience the following:

  • Seizures
  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Personality changes
  • Psychological symptoms

In the case of a closed-head injury, these symptoms may resolve in weeks or may last for months or years. In some cases, they may be permanent and can result in difficulties in your career and your family life.

For some victims of moderate to severe brain injury in Florida, the existence of TBI may be clearly shown through CT scans and other diagnostic testing.

Mild to moderate TBI, however, may not show up on objective scans and may be revealed only through cognitive testing and observation. In either case, the impact is all too clear for the victims and their families.
