Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney in JacksonvilleOf all the injuries that can be sustained in an accident, injuries to the brain can have the most devastating effect on the human mind, body and spirit. Few things could be worse than having a loved one, family member or friend who has sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in an accident because of the negligence of another. At Wood, Atter and Wolf, we understand how emotionally difficult it is to care for a victim of a brain injury, and are here to provide you with the support and information you will need to get through these difficult times. When tragedy like this strikes, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered, and Michael Atter and David Wolf are here to help guide you through the process and represent your interests. Traumatic Brain Injury may be the result of an obvious impact to the head and sustained loss of consciousness. It can also occur even when the head is not directly impacted, as many accidents that seemingly only affect other parts of the body, such as the neck and spine, can result in a closed head injury, with bruising of the brain that often goes unreported and unnoticed by physicians. The effects of Traumatic Brain Injury can also be subtle, although very frightening. It usually takes a high level of alertness by the family and friends of the victim to note and report these subtle changes.
Effects of TBI'sThe ripple effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury usually reach far beyond the initial victim. When a person sustains a brain injury in an accident, close family members and friends are usually called in to lend a helping hand and supportive role, because the ongoing care is much more complicated than most other types of bodily injuries. A Traumatic Brain Injury is very difficult and taxing on family members as well as the victim. Compensation through an insurance claim only goes so far, where what is needed most is a recovery that takes time and cannot always be guaranteed. The one thing that can be counted on is that Wood, Atter & Wolf, P.A., led by both Michael Atter and David Wolf, will employ all of their knowledge, experience and legal skills to get you the financial compensation you deserve to cover medical bills, therapy, education, housing, and living expenses.
Of the 1.4 million Traumatic Brain Injuries that happen every year in the U.S., a majority occur as the result of a slip and fall accident, automobile or motorcycle accident. Traumatic Brain Injury victims are initially treated in an emergency room, most are hospitalized and approximately 50,000 die each year as the result of a Traumatic Brain Injury. It is estimated that at least 5.3 million Americans have sustained a brain injury requiring long-term need for help in performing daily activities. Traumatic Brain Injuries also affect a wide range of functional activities -- including language, learning, emotional and behavioral.
