When someone acts carelessly or recklessly, others often suffer catastrophic injuries. This could include traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that make it difficult to work, participate in favorite activities, or even live independently. Victims of these injuries have rights, including the right to pursue justice and hold the at-fault party accountable. A Pompano Beach brain injury lawyer from our team is here to help.
You can talk to a personal injury attorney from Ged Lawyers for free today. We provide free case consultations for injury victims and their families. If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury because of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to hold them responsible and recover compensation for medical bills, lost income, and more.
Our Pompano Beach Attorneys Seek Compensation for Brain Injury Victims
Traumatic brain injury survivors often live with lasting effects. These vary greatly but could prevent them from working or living independently for a short time or the rest of their lives. The expenses and losses incurred because of these injuries vary widely, too. When our team takes on a case, we identify and document the recoverable damages and seek compensation for our client.
Depending on the circumstances and case facts, this could include:
- Medical bills
- Care and support expenses
- Lost income and reduced ability to work and earn in the future
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous costs
- Pain and suffering
We understand how much of a financial strain catastrophic injuries can cause. We regularly work with families who need to know they can provide the care and support their loved ones need in the coming years and remain on steady financial footing if they cannot return to their previous jobs. We seek compensation for current and future expenses, working with experts to document the estimated future costs of treatment, care, support, and pain and suffering losses.
We also represent families in wrongful death actions. Unfortunately, not all TBI victims survive their injuries. If you lost a loved one in Pompano Beach, our attorney can explain this process and your options. Florida Statutes § 768.21 allows family members to recover compensation, but only the decedent’s personal representative can represent the family as the plaintiff.

Developing a Pompano Beach, FL, TBI Case With Help From Our Lawyers
When our team represents a victim recovering from or living with a TBI, we handle all aspects of the case. The client can focus on treatment, rehabilitation, therapy, and physical recovery. The necessary steps to build a strong and compelling case are not something most victims could handle on their own, regardless of the severity of their injuries.
Our lawyers have the knowledge, experience, and resources to take steps to investigate and document what occurred, building a case against the liable party or parties. The goal is to show the four elements of negligence are present. These include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
When one party owes another a duty of care and then violates that duty, it often causes injuries. Consider a driver violating a traffic law. Their breach of the law is the proximate cause of a collision and the injuries that occur. Documenting these four elements shows that the at-fault party’s carelessness or recklessness caused the incident and injuries.
Using the evidence collected, we organize and present a compelling argument for fair compensation to the insurance carrier representing the responsible party. This often leads to settlement negotiations. We often secure payouts for our clients through these negotiations, either before or after suing the liable party.
Settlement negotiations are not always successful. There could also be other reasons why our attorneys believe taking a case to trial is the best approach. We can explain this if it occurs in your case. Our trial lawyers are familiar with how this works and even have mock trials to ensure you know what to expect as the process proceeds.
