ABOUT THIS PRACTICE
Brain Injury Lawyer
Suffering a brain injury is an extremely traumatizing experience, exacerbated when the injury occurs at the hands of another individual. The Miami personal injury attorneys of Gamba, Lombana, & Herrera understand the significant medical, legal, and emotional implications of head injuries. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is also referred to as “the invisible injury,” as the physical trauma is completely internal. These types of injuries range from mild to severe, and there are both short and long-term consequences.
Traumatic Brain Injury
According to the latest statistics, there are approximately two million brain injuries reported in the United States each year. More than 50,000 of these injuries are fatal, and a significant percentage of those who survive TBI suffer permanent and irreversible disabilities including paralysis, loss of motor functions, loss of reasoning and critical thinking abilities, memory loss, sensory loss (including sight and hearing), impaired speech, and emotional disabilities such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The most common causes of these injuries are concussions, trauma from the violent jarring of the head (often seen as a causality from car accidents), and injuries caused by lack of oxygen to the brain typically seen in drowning incidents but also a result of surgical accidents.
Are You Entitled to Recover Damages?
When a brain injury is caused by the negligence or acts of another individual, the victim may be entitled to recover damages for their current and future medical costs, property damage, pain and suffering, and loss of current and future earnings.
Families of TBI victims may also be entitled to compensation if their circumstances or lifestyle has been altered in order to care for their loved one by cause of the injury. Punitive damages aimed at admonishing the responsible party and deterring the behavior that caused the injury from being repeated in the future are also possible in many brain injury cases.
