We Uplift TBI Clients and Take Down Insurers

Insurance companies are infamous for backing away whenever a client seeks damages for a traumatic brain injury or TBI. The required amount of compensation will often reach seven figures due to the extensive, permanent harm caused by brain damage, which is why insurers will look for ways to fight any such claim. The unfortunate end result is many people who need financial support due to a TBI do not get it.

Symptoms of a Mild TBI

In medical terms, a mild traumatic brain injury is one that causes slight brain damage and subtle symptoms. Do not be mistaken by the term, though. Mild TBIs are still extremely dangerous, as they can worsen without proper care and precautions.

Further trouble arises if a mild TBI causes subtle symptoms that you might be tempted to ignore. If you have been in a serious accident recently and have been experiencing new health problems ever since, then they could be warning signs that you have an underlying brain injury.

Subtle yet serious symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Migraines or chronic headaches
  • Spells of dizziness or nausea
  • Tinnitus or balance issues
  • Temporary vision loss
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Memory issues

After any accident, please see a doctor as soon as possible, even if you think you are relatively fine. An early diagnosis could catch the warning signs of a TBI and allow for early treatments that mitigate the extent of the harm done.

Seeing a doctor early will also improve the validity of your consequent brain injury claim. The more solid evidence you have your injuries, the stronger a claim our Tampa brain injury lawyers can build for you.

You deserve an award-winning team for your TBI claim. Choose Gunn Law Group, P.A. in Tampa, FL.

What is CTE?

CTE stands for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which is a catastrophic injury that is associated with repeated traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that may be caused by repeated head trauma and may also be found in the brains of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s.

Unfortunately, the diagnosis is difficult to make because the only reliable way to determine it is postmortem, during an autopsy that is focused on sections of the brain. If you suspect that you or someone you love may have CTE, it may be time to get contact a personal injury attorney in Tampa, FL who is practiced in TBI.

What Causes CTE?

Experts are still trying to understand CTE, however, the cause is most likely tied to repetitive head trauma. CTE has been found in the brains of athletes who have played contact sports such as football, boxing, ice hockey, and wrestling, and those who have served in the military, particularly those who have been in war zones and have been exposed to explosive blasts have also shown signs of CTE. It may also be seen in people with epilepsy and victims of domestic violence. If you or a loved one has experienced repeated head trauma and you believe they are suffering from CTE, speak with a Tampa injury lawyer at Gunn Law Group as soon as possible to see if you have a personal injury claim.

Symptoms of CTE

Experts are still trying to understand CTE, however, some symptoms are believed to develop over time after the head trauma happens. If you have noticed any of the symptoms listed below, make an appointment with your doctor to get an evaluation and consider getting in touch with a Tampa personal injury lawyer who has deep knowledge about traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Some symptoms of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE):

  • Difficulties with motor skills and maintaining balance
  • Difficulties with thinking; confusion
  • Loss of memory
  • Anxiety
  • Erratic changes in behavior and personality including aggression and depression, increased frustration, mood swings, and violent outbursts
  • Loss of interest in things or people that the affected person previously cared about

Who is Liable For CTE?

Although chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a condition that may take decades to develop, there are still cases where the liability was able to be traced to a specific party. Depending on the situation, whoever is liable for CTE depends on the facts of the case.

Possible sources of liability for CTE may include:

  • Defective Products - certain products may cause brain injuries, for example, a defective airbag, chronic exposure to dangerous chemicals, working with industrial equipment, slip & fall accidents
  • Assault or Battery - victims of repeated assault or battery may experience head trauma that may lead to traumatic brain injury over time
  • Negligence - if the victim is a contact sports athlete, the sports coach or teacher may have failed to provide adequate safety equipment

Seek Every Penny You Are Owed

  • Emergency medical attention

  • Surgery
  • Rehabilitative therapy
  • Lost or reduced wages
  • Emotional pain and suffering

When we accept a TBI claim, we carefully consider all possible damages that our client has already experienced and what might be experienced far into the future.

Any time you want, you can speak directly with your lawyer to put your mind at ease while we work diligently toward the most favorable outcome.
