Miami Brain Injury Lawyer
The cost of a brain injury often extends beyond the initial hospitalization. Serious brain injuries often cause cognitive and physical damage requiring surgery, physical therapy, and in-home medical care.
The personal injury attorneys of Ferrer Shane work with experienced medical experts and health care professionals when calculating the full financial impact of a serious brain injury, from current and future medical costs and lost wages to the diminished quality of life.

Negligence, Accidents and Serious Brain Injuries
Our personal injury attorneys represent people suffering from serious brain injuries. A serious brain injury almost always results in some form of permanent or long-lasting disability, especially in birth injury cases involving hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
Brain injuries can be deceptive when concussions and serious head wounds don’t indicate any immediate brain damage. However, over time, memory loss, chronic headaches, cognitive impairment or loss of physical dexterity can occur.
It’s important to talk to an attorney before speaking with an insurance agent or a lawyer representing an insurance company.
Brain Injuries: From Mild to Severe
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are categorized from mild to severe. In reality, there is no such thing as a mild brain injury. These injuries can have a serious impact on a person’s life.
A mild traumatic brain injury, or “MTBI,” is an injury that involves one or more symptoms, including a loss of consciousness, loss of memory, and other neurological defects. Often, these MTBIs arise from serious accidents, and when those accidents are caused by negligence or misconduct, it is important to have experienced legal representation.
When the brain ricochets inside of the skull during an accident or another collision, damage to the brain can occur and can impact the brain stem, the frontal lobe and temporal lobes. Sometimes, there not many outward symptoms and a person may seem fine on the surface. Left untreated, however, a mild traumatic brain injury can turn into something much more serious, which is why it is so critical to get the injury checked out immediately.
