Standing Up for the Rights of TBI Victims in Brandon, Florida
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are always complex injuries that can affect each victim in a unique way.

Our legal team at Carman & Bevington handles many types of complicated injury cases, including those arising from brain injuries. Contact our office directly to discuss a potential case with a member of our team.
Common Causes of TBI
Traumatic brain injuries occur when part of your brain collides with the inside of your skull, causing damage to your delicate brain tissue. This collision can result from direct trauma to the head or even a sharp jolt of your neck and head. The following are only some of the many accidents and events that can lead to this type of injury:
- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Sports accidents
- Playground accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Defective products
Anytime you hit your head or experience a jolt, you should seek a medical evaluation to ensure you get properly diagnosed if you sustained a brain injury.
The Impact of Traumatic Brain Injury
As mentioned, the effects of a TBI can vary widely, depending on which part of the brain was affected, and the severity of the injury. Immediate signs of a brain injury can include:
- Disorientation and dizziness
- Blurred vision or ringing in your ears
- Unconsciousness, which can be brief or prolonged
- Memory problems and confusion
- Sleep disruptions
- Irritability and mood swings
If an accident victim is unconscious, they likely will be transported to the emergency room by ambulance. However, even if there are no obvious signs of a brain injury, you should still seek an evaluation. Many accident victims write off TBI symptoms as stress or feeling “out of it” after an accident when, in reality, they are dealing with a serious injury.
A concussion is a common form of mild TBI, which usually requires rest while you recover from your symptoms. A subsequent concussion before the initial injury heals can be potentially life-threatening. Moderate and severe TBIs can have long-term effects, which can even cause permanent impairments. Such impairments can affect:
- Cognitive processing
- Balance and coordination
- Behavioral and emotional control
Many victims of moderate to severe brain injuries require extensive rehabilitation, and they may not be able to return to their previous jobs or school programs due to their impairments.
