Tallahassee Brain Injury Attorney
The Cotterall Law Firm Can Help You Seek Compensation
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change your life and the lives of your family members in an instant. One moment you are driving to work, walking to school or doing your job, and the next, you are facing weeks, months or even years of difficult recovery. While severe injuries have the greatest impact, even mild and moderate brain injuries can cause permanent damage to cognitive and functional abilities. The treatment for these injuries can have a devastating impact on families due to large medical expenses, financial burden and other losses which result from the injuries. To protect yourself and your family financially, you need to hire an attorney with experience in representing brain injury victims and can pursue compensation on your behalf.
Why Should I Hire a Lawyer for My Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries resulting from collisions, falls and other accidents can have serious short and long-term effects that require costly medical treatment and extensive therapy and rehabilitation. Without help, many victims are unable to cover the costs of their injuries on their own.
If someone else is responsible for your brain injury, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit and recover fair compensation for your physical, financial and emotional losses. This includes not only your medical expenses, but your lost income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and other damages as well. At The Cotterall Law Firm, we represent brain injury victims in lawsuits throughout the Tallahassee and North Florida area. When you contact us about your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation and make sure we pursue maximum compensation from all of the parties responsible for your injury.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
Importantly, not all brain injuries constitute grounds to file a lawsuit. In order for you to have a claim, someone else must be responsible for your injury. However, even if you think you may be partially to blame for your own injury, you should still contact us. The law might see things differently, and even if you were partially to blame, you could still be entitled to a partial financial recovery.
Some common situations where brain injuries can lead to claims for compensation include:
- Accidents involving defective products
- Auto accidents
- Aviation accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents

We care about the members of our community. If you have a claim, we want to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
