Who Can Sue Over a Brain Injury?

Any Florida resident who has sustained a brain injury because of another party’s negligence can sue for compensation. Brain injury victims must prove that negligence caused the accident or incident in which they were injured, however. For example, if a drunk driver struck your vehicle and you suffered a brain injury, you would have to prove that the other driver was drunk and, therefore, acting negligently.

Other common negligent causes of brain injuries include:

Typically, those injured sue either an insurance company, such as for a motor vehicle accident, or a hospital/clinic, such as for a medical injury. It is very important to sue the correct party or the case will be thrown out. Unfortunately, this may cause plaintiffs (those suing) to miss the deadline to file suit against the correct party. Once this happens, the plaintiff will no longer have the right to seek compensation.

How Much Is a Brain Injury Case Worth?

Although every case is different, brain injury victims typically qualify to be compensated for one or more of the following damages:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Short- or long-term disability accommodations

Types of Brain Injuries

The brain can sustain many different injuries in a variety of ways, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs): An acquired brain injury (not present at birth) that results from trauma to the head, which causes the brain to shift, compress, or slam against the skull. Mild traumatic brain injuries are more commonly known as concussions.
  • Toxic exposure: When a person is exposed to toxic substances or materials, such as lead, a brain injury can result. These days, defective products and medications are often behind these injuries.
  • Oxygen deprivation: Brain injuries rooted in oxygen deprivation tend to be associated with near-drowning accidents, birth injury, anesthesia errors, and the like. A lack of oxygen leads to a decreased flow of oxygenated blood to the brain. Thus, the longer a person is deprived of oxygen, the more severely the brain will be injured.

It is also increasingly common for stem cell therapy patients to suffer brain injuries.

Work with a Proven Trial Team

Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen has built a legacy of successfully resolving high-stakes litigation, including litigation pertaining to brain injuries. We help clients who have suffered TBIs and other types of brain damage pursue justice.

Our notable brain injury case results include the following:

  • Eight-figure settlement negotiated in favor of a patient who suffered a hypoxic brain injury after medical staff failed to treat a heart attack in a timely manner;
  • $16 million settlement negotiated for a patient who suffered severe brain damage after she was left unattended despite having repeatedly pulled at her tracheostomy tube; and
  • $9.8 million settlement negotiated for a couple whose baby suffered severe brain damage and developed a permanent disability due to a lack of care during labor and delivery.

A lawsuit cannot truly make up for what happened. We know that. It can, however, help you recover compensation to afford the medical care you need. Further, holding the liable party accountable can provide you with a sense of closure.

After performing a brief examination, the doctor at the facility recommended that she undergo parathyroid surgery, however he did not order the necessary radiological scan that determines which side of her neck should be operated on.

  • Medical Malpractice Seven-Figure Settlement for Woman Who Lost Her Leg After Misdiagnosis

    A woman in her sixties was brought to a hospital after she slipped and fell, injuring her leg and causing severe pain.

    In 2015, a 23-year-old mother began experiencing severe complications while giving birth in Charlotte County, Florida.

The mother and her unborn child eventually died in the hospital.

    A 68-year-old man was complaining about pain in his left leg, which was swollen, red, and painful. He went to a local emergency room, and the family asked the doctor if it was a blood clot. The doctor assured the family that it was not a blood clot but was instead cellulitis from a sunburn. When the patient returned home the next day, he died of a pulmonary embolism due to the blood clot that was initially suspected by the family.

Tragically, while the patient was speaking with the insurance company on the phone about the transfer, the aneurysm ruptured, and he died.
