Brain Injuries

In today’s busy world, people often take for granted being able to think clearly, move their arms and legs with little thought, and have a life free of pain, anxiety, and confusion. However, for those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries, the world is a very different place. Rather than living a carefree life, victims of these injuries often face months, years, or a lifetime of agony physically and emotionally. Sadly, many traumatic brain injuries result from the negligence of others. Whether it is a car accident, slip and fall situation, or an injury occurring during a sports event, the effects of these injuries can linger on endlessly and result in both the victim and their family experiencing unnecessary pain and worry. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it’s time to take action against those who are responsible and hold them accountable for their actions. In situations such as this, experienced personal injury attorneys are needed to make sure the case is handled correctly from the beginning. For residents of Tampa and nearby areas in Florida, the law firm of Bernstein and Maryanoff should be contacted when help is needed.

The Numbers Are Staggering

While many people believe brain injuries are very uncommon, the numbers tell a much different story. Based on figures compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur annually in the United States. Of those who are injured, 25 percent suffer injuries extensive enough to result in long-term disabilities. And to make matters worse, many doctors are slow to realize the seriousness of the injuries sustained by their patients. As a result, the victims often endure far more difficult circumstances than they would otherwise. When this is the case, we at Bernstein and Maryanoff are prepared to go to work immediately in order to right this terrible wrong. We will look at the circumstances that led up to the accident, gather all the facts of the case, and then proceed to make sure those who are responsible pay for their actions.

Negligence and Carelessness of Others

In many cases involving brain injuries, what makes the circumstances even more sad is the fact that the accident never should have happened. However, because of the negligence and carelessness of others, victims of these accidents have their lives forever changed. Car accidents, the leading cause of these incidents, are almost always a result of another person failing to be careful and mindful of the safety of others. Unfortunately, the results are often catastrophic. Along with car accidents, carelessness is often exhibited in slip and fall situations, sporting competition injuries, and accidents involving blunt force trauma to the head. In each of these situations, it’s always clear the accident could have been prevented if those responsible had chosen to be careful rather than reckless. When dealing with these situations, we feel it is imperative to work extremely hard for our clients in order to help them gain the financial compensation they deserve. To ensure no stone is left unturned, we examine all the data available to us, speak with key witnesses, and compile a case that will get the results our clients deserve and need to make their lives better once again. While we may not be able to undo the physical and emotional damage already done, we can help victims gain the financial compensation needed to help them once again live a life filled with dignity and respect.
