Port Charlotte Brain Injury Lawyers
Helping You Plan for Your Future Needs
Brain injuries can have a long-term, permanent impact on the life of the individual affected, as well as his or her family members. The consequences of a brain injury can range from mild to severe. There may be physical issues like pain or lack of muscular control. Some injuries may affect cognitive abilities, personality, or the sight or communication skills of the accident victim. Each situation is different, making it difficult for physicians to deliver an accurate prognosis during the initial stages of treatment.
The uncertainty that accompanies a brain injury is one of the main reasons we encourage anyone who experiences a head injury to protect their options for the future. Our Port Charlotte brain injury attorneys have years of experience assisting the injured in Lee, Sarasota, Desoto, and Charlotte Counties. As a result, we can provide a seasoned perspective to clients who are overwhelmed with the trauma of the situation and the lack of clarity about future needs.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can happen almost anywhere and under a wide variety of circumstances.
Here is a short list of accidents which can result in a TBI:
- Striking the head during a fall
- Bodily collisions (such as in sporting activities)
- Truck or car accidents
- Being struck in the head by an object
- Any traumatic event in which the head is thrown forward or backward, even if the head does not strike another object
Symptoms of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are not always immediately evident. The initial symptoms for a TBI can be mild or have a delayed onset. Many times, victims don’t connect the symptoms they are experiencing with the accident until they become persistent.
Watch for these symptoms of brain injury:
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Memory loss or forgetfulness
- Mood swings
- Recurring headaches
