The human brain is extraordinary. It is a nerve center that serves as “mission control” for the entire human body. The brain plays an important role in everything we do and in defining who we are as individuals. Fortunately, the brain is well protected from physical trauma by the skull and from potentially toxic substances by a protective membrane referred to as the “blood-brain barrier.” Yet, the brain is as vulnerable as human life itself and thousands of people each year suffer debilitating brain damage.
Our Miami, Florida brain injury lawyers know that a brain injury can come from a variety of harmful mechanisms including, among others, exposure to toxic substances, total deprivation of oxygen (“anoxic brain damage”), partial deprivation of oxygen (“hypoxic brain damage”), untreated infection, stroke, tumor, burst aneurysm or physical trauma ("traumatic brain injury" or "TBI") such as that sustained from a fall, car or truck accident.
Brain injuries, regardless of the cause, can be physically, emotionally and financially crippling. These terrible injuries can dramatically impair a person’s ability to function and enjoy life. When the painful effects of brain damage on a person and family are suffered due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others – whether from a motor vehicle accident, a fall, medical malpractice, a dangerous product, a near drowning in an unsafe pool, or from some other harmful mechanism - the legal system may allow for just and substantial compensation.
