Brain Injuries

Lives Forever Changed By Negligence Resulting In A Brain Injury

Through the years we have handled numerous brain injury cases. Some of these cases involve comatose clients who go on to make recoveries only after a team rehabilitative approach with physical therapists, psychiatrists, orthopedists, neurosurgeons, and psychologists. Other cases involve mild traumatic brain injuries which may not have been immediately diagnosed at the emergency room. We devote a great deal of time, effort, and expense to documenting the nature of the brain injury and its effects on the individual and his/her family. These cases are often vigorously disputed by the insurance companies so it is vitally important to be familiar with the best experts and the best testing available to document these injuries.

There is nothing minor about a traumatic brain injury (TBI). For children and adults, it is significant and life-altering. If the damage occurred due to negligence, it was completely avoidable. You want to hold the responsible party accountable. You want justice. At Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., in Gainesville, Florida, our personal injury lawyers will see that justice is served.

If you suffered a traumatic brain injury, your life may never be the same. Perhaps you can no longer work. Maybe you are unable to carry on a simple conversation. Contact us at 352-562-7809.
