    A brain injury can affect a person’s life drastically. Every year, around 1 million individuals in the US visit hospital emergency rooms for traumatic brain injury (TBI). Of these, about 50,000 die. 

    Without immediate care, it leads to severe consequences – including physical, sensory, and cognitive impairments. Even medical attention leads to enormous expenses, and the victim may struggle to pay hospital bills while trying to live a normal life.

    How Does Our Florida Brain Injury Lawyer Help You?

    Berke Law Firm, a personal injury lawyer in Cape Coral, has decades of experience winning cases for TBI victims throughout Florida. Using our expertise, we can improve your chances of receiving the settlement you deserve.  

    Below are some ways we can help you with your TBI case:

    • Develop a Connection

    Accidents are traumatic. They not only affect you financially but also emotionally. We at Berke Law Firm have worked with a number of TBI victims. So, we know how challenging those circumstances can be for victims and their families. 

    When working on your case, we stay connected with you and ensure you are comfortable throughout the process. 

    • Offer Guidance 

    We want favorable results for you. That’s why we stand by your side. In addition to listening to you, we provide the right guidance to ensure the case stays on the right track.

    • Meet The Statute of Limitations Deadline

    When it comes to filing for a TBI case, it is necessary to consider the Statute of Limitations. On your behalf, we take care of it and file the claim before the deadline. 

    • Fight for Your Claim

    TBI cases lead to expenses like medical bills, lost wages, and disrupted family finances. We believe a victim doesn’t have to suffer when someone else is responsible for their TBIs.

    We aggressively fight for your rights and work to ensure that you get the rightful compensation for your loss.  

    • Collection Evidence

    We let you focus on your recovery and gather proof to prove that the other side is responsible for your injuries. The process of collecting evidence includes visiting the place where the incident took place and interviewing eyewitnesses. 

    • Do Settlement Estimation

    TBIs don’t lead only to injuries. They also result in disrupted life, lost wages, and affected mental health. We are your Florida traumatic brain injury lawyer who believes your claim should include all those aspects that experience the aftereffects of a TBI. On your behalf, we analyze what the rightful compensation for injury should be.

    • Representing You in the Court

    When you choose us as your brain injury lawyer, our work doesn’t end with collecting evidence and making a claim settlement. If required, we represent you during a trial.    

    What is the Statute of Limitations for Brain Injuries in Florida?

    A Florida brain injury attorney can help you get compensation for your TBI case. However, things work only when you start the process on time. It is because the state gives victims a limited time to file the case.

    In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for brain injury cases is two years from the time of the accident. It is similar to medical malpractice cases. 

    Causes of Brain Injuries

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there can be many causes of TBIs for which victims can hire a lawyer. Some of them are below:

    • Brain Injury During Childbirth: This type of TBI is a result of negligence by a healthcare provider, hospital, or doctor. In these cases, medical malpractice can cause a serious brain injury.
    • TBIs Due to Accidents: Incidents like accidents are inevitable. They can occur anytime, even when you are alert. If you suffer from brain injury as a result of performing duties, then you may be eligible to claim compensation for your loss. These can be car accidents, truck accidents, and slips and falls. 
    • Criminal injuries: Many times, people get severe brain injuries due to different types of assault. If you have been injured as the victim of a crime, a lawyer can help you in the entire legal process, from gathering evidence supporting your claim to representing you at trial.

    How To File for Traumatic Brain Injury Claim in Florida?

    Although we, as your traumatic brain injury lawyer, take care of your case, there are a few things you need to take into account before filing a claim. 

    • Obtain Legal Documents – Police Report, Medical Report

    In addition to explaining the incident that led to TBI to your lawyer, you require a few documents to support your claim. For example, a police report explains the time and circumstances of the incident. 

    Also, to increase the possibility of maximizing your claim, you must show your medical records to your attorney. 

    If possible, get:

    – MRI/DTI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging/ Diffusion Tensor Imaging)

    – MRI/SWI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging/ Susceptibility Weighted Imaging)

    – MRI/MRS (Magnetic Resonance Imaging/ Spectroscopy)
