When you think of the Sunshine State, you think of beautiful beaches, palm trees, and of course all that sunshine. In fact, one of the last things you might think of is brain injury and head trauma. However, according to the Brain Injury Association of Florida (BIAF), 136,000 Floridians suffer from brain injuries each year.
Most people do not realize that brain injuries are devastating, life-changing and often not as easy to detect as one might think. That is why traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are sometimes called “invisible injuries”.
However, each year traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability all across the country.
In some cases, a brain injury from a serious accident is the result of the negligence of an individual, company or entity. If you or your loved one is the victim of such an incident, you may be entitled to compensation.
