Traumatic Brain Injuries

Were You Injured Through Someone Else’s Actions?

Brains control every single aspect of our bodies, ranging from keeping our heart beating to taking a step and everything in between. Even though they are by far the most important organ, they are incredibly fragile. Even the slightest bruise can cause serious problems and damage its ability to function at full capacity. When the damage is even more severe, the injury can be classified as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These types of injuries can seriously inhibit the brain’s ability to send out certain signals to the rest of the body, and could even lead to permanent disability.

Call us at (954) 866-5493 today to discuss your situation with one of our lawyers.

TBIs are some of the most devastating injuries anyone can face. If you were seriously injured because of someone else’s actions, you deserve the chance to fight for the compensation you need to cover any medical bills or other damages you may have incurred. With more than 60 years of collective experience, our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers at Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. are ready and waiting to provide you with the dedicated legal representation you deserve.
