Dealing with Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries in Florida

In a flash, life can take an unexpected turn. A simple drive home, a fall, or an accidental hit during a recreational game can lead to serious brain and spinal cord injuries. These injuries not only catapult you into a whirlwind of medical treatments and rehabilitation but also into a complex maze of legal procedures and compensation claims. It’s a road no one chooses to travel, but one that many Floridians find themselves on every year.

At the Law Office of Shannon J. Sagan, PA, we acknowledge the steep challenges that accompany brain and spinal cord injuries. Our mission is to guide you through the legal complexities and advocate for your rights, so you can focus on your recovery and the journey ahead.

The Basics of Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Brain and spinal cord injuries often result from accidents such as falls, car crashes, sports injuries, or even violent assaults. In Florida, if these injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. It’s important to note that proving negligence involves demonstrating that the person at fault failed to act with reasonable care.

Impact and Complications of Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries in Florida

The effects of brain and spinal cord injuries vary widely and are dependent on the severity of the injury. Consequences can range from mild concussions to severe paralysis, and these injuries can significantly alter a person’s life. Additionally, long-term care and rehabilitation are often necessary, adding to the financial strain.

Attorney Shannon Sagan has been in two accidents that involved brain injuries and kept him from attending school for over 9 months, so he has not only legal but personal knowledge of what a client is going through. 

Living with these injuries can mean adjusting to a new way of life and grappling with emotional distress, not just for the injured person, but also for their loved ones.

Seeking Legal Help in Florida

Securing legal representation when dealing with such profound injuries can help protect your rights and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. At The Dash Cam Lawyer®, we will guide you through the complex legal process, gather necessary evidence, and fight for your interests.

It’s important to remember that as of March 2023 in Florida, you now only have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Therefore, it’s crucial to reach out to a legal professional as soon as possible.

The Role of Your Legal Team

As your legal team, we will help establish the extent of your injury, the costs associated with it, and how it has affected your life. We will handle the legal landscape on your behalf, negotiating with insurance companies and, if necessary, taking your case to court. Our goal is to secure the best possible outcome for you and ensure you have the necessary resources to focus on recovery and rebuilding your life.

Understanding Your Compensation

Compensation can cover medical bills, ongoing care costs, lost wages, and even non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. Every case is unique, and the amount of compensation varies based on several factors, including the severity of the injury, the level of negligence involved, and the impact of the injury on your quality of life.
