Head & Brain Injuries

Traumatic Head & Brain Injuries

There are many common causes of head injuries. This includes traffic accidents, home and occupational accidents, falls, and assaults.

Of the many types of head injuries, all are either open or closed. If the skull remains intact, it is a closed head injury. Should an object pierce the skull it is a penetrating head injury. Brain injuries  occur either over a wide area, or are focal, located in a small, specific area. A head injury may cause a skull fracture, which may or may not be associated with injury to the brain.

Head injury is a trauma to the head.

There are many common causes of head injuries. This includes traffic accidents, home and occupational accidents, falls, and assaults. Bicycle accidents frequently cause head injury-related death and disability. This especially applies to children. Head injuries can result in attention, emotional, and memory loss problems. Severe head injuries may lead to a coma or death.

Specific Problems after Head Injury Include:

Brain Injury: the disruption of the normal functioning of a brain. It is caused by a blow, jolt, or penetration to the head.

Concussion: an injury to the head causing the brain to strike the skull. It may result in brain malfunctions such as memory loss.

    I was helped by Brian after a terrible car accident, and he helped me every step of the way! The staff is super nice and very good with getting back to you, as well as answering any and all questions I had. I was coming out of high school and did not know anything about the legal system so I was beyond blessed that I had this law firm to handle everything . . .

    I was involved in a car accident where my vehicle was totaled and I suffered back injuries. I did not know any accident attorneys personally so I turned to google to find Brian Bell. And I am so glad I did. Brian was professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. He was able to settle my case very quickly and I was very pleased with the outcome. He is highly recommended.

    Brian Bell is the most thorough attorney I have ever had the pleasure working with. He genuinely cares for all of his clients, and always goes the extra mile. He is quick to respond personally, with any questions or concerns you have. I moved across the state of Florida, and still seek his counsel! He is the only one I would trust to handle any cases for me. HIGHLY recommend.
