Brain Injuries

Gelch & Associates, P.A. represent people in Florida who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A traumatic brain injury occurs in accidents when some form of trauma disrupts brain function. These types of brain injuries affect 1.4 million people in the United States each year and range in severity from mild concussions to coma or death.

Common causes of TBI are

  • falls in which the head of the injured person strikes the ground or another hard object,
  • car accidents,
  • discharges of guns and other firearms,
  • assaults and other criminal acts, and
  • explosions or blasts (for members of the armed services).

Our firm recognizes that effects of traumatic brain injury can be severe and long-lasting. Let us review your available legal options, including how we may be able to secure compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages and future medical treatment.
