If you live in Tampa Florida, and you suffered a head or traumatic brain injury due to someone’s negligence, a head injury lawyer may be able to help you to get a significant cash settlement.

Some injuries are easy to explain and understand. If you tell someone, “I broke my arm,” that person has a good general idea of what you mean. The severity of the break can come into question, but what does not is the pain and the disruption to your daily routine that it causes.
When you suffer a back, neck, or head injury, the situation is far less clear. These types of injuries have profoundly different effects from one person to the next. Getting all the compensation you deserve for your head, neck or back injury requires careful examination and preparation by an experienced back, neck, and head injury attorney team. At Winters & Yonker, P.A., our experienced, aggressive personal injury attorneys are ready, right now, to help you collect the money you deserve after suffering such a serious, and often life-changing, injury.
WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?
A traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI, happens when damage is caused to the brain as a result of a blunt force to the head. Traumatic brain injury can occur if the head slams into an object, or a sharp object pierces the skull and damages brain tissue.
TBI range from being mild to severe. Someone with a mild traumatic brain injury may remain conscious or fade in and out of consciousness. Other symptoms may include confusion, blurred vision, dizziness, or a lack in the ability to focus. A person with a severe traumatic brain injury could suffer with amplified symptoms above and excruciating head pain.
HEAD INJURY LAWYER CAN HELP YOU GET COMPENSATION FOR THE UNCERTAIN COST OF RECOVERY
If you have suffered injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated. The amount you deserve depends on many factors. Is your injury is preventing you from working? If so, you may be entitled to recover lost wages, both present, and future. You may be entitled to money for your pain and suffering and for the cost of your medical care.
Insurance companies will use deceptive tactics to try getting you to agree to a quick settlement before you have time to assess all the expenses you will incur as a result. Insurance companies almost never voluntarily assess the long-term costs. They know that back, neck and head injuries can require ongoing therapy and treatment. You may need care for your injuries for months or even years down the line.
Never accept an insurance company settlement without first contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer. Our Tampa injury lawyers will fight hard against the insurance company and get you a fair settlement. If necessary, we will take your case to trial. We aggressively pursue the rights of injured people and we won’t stop until we get you the money you deserve after suffering a serious injury.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY ATTORNEYS HELP FOR VICTIMS OF HEAD INJURIES
While a large number of head injuries are relatively minor, others can be very serious. Skull fractures, concussions, and other traumatic brain injuries can have lasting and debilitating effects.
In legal terms, head injuries have two broad classifications: Closed or Open. A Closed head injury occurs as the result of a powerful blow to the head by a foreign object. In a closed head injury, the surface of the skull sustains damage but is not fractured in any way.
An open (penetrating) head injury occurs when an object causes a fracture that, in turn, sends skull fragments into the brain. Open head injuries most commonly the result of a high-speed event such as car accidents, motorcycle accidents, blunt force trauma, and shootings (either accidental or deliberate).

A HEAD INJURY LAWYER CAN HELP YOU GET COMPENSATION TO TREAT TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY A NECK INJURY
Even seemingly minor neck injuries can damage soft tissue, cause headaches and radiating pain that shoots up into the brain, leading to lifelong pain and suffering and continuous medical treatment and care.
The neck is among most flexible parts of the human body. That remarkable flexibility, however, is also what makes the neck so vulnerable to injury. Injury to any part of the neck can, and often does, lead to other issues in other parts of your neck and exacerbate any pre-existing conditions in both the neck and the head. For example a whiplash injury to the neck can cause traumatic brain injury symptoms years later. Your pain may be minimal now, however, your long term symptoms can cause your quality of life to be less than desirable later in life. This is the reason to consider hiring an experienced head trauma lawyer today to help you get injury compensation for potential pain and suffering in the future.
BRAIN INJURY LAWYERS UNDERSTAND CATASTROPHIC NECK INJURIES THAT CAUSE TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
The worst neck injuries occur as the result of fracture or dislocation which does damage to the cervical spine (the area of the spinal cord that resides in the neck).
Neck injuries are also some of the most common work-related injuries. Neck injuries can result in pain in the shoulders, jaw, upper arms, and head. They can also result in headaches and, at times, dizziness, various head pain related issues. The pain suffered from a work-related injury is often the result of tears in muscle tissue or injuries to joints between vertebrae. Ligament rupture or disc damage are also common sources of pain with a neck injury.
The long-term effects of a neck injury are not always easily or immediately detectable. If you have suffered a neck injury at work, you might have concerns beyond your pain and suffering. You may be uncertain about when – or even if you will be able to return to work. Regardless of the consequences of your injury, the back, neck, and head injury attorney team at Winters & Yonker will fight to ensure that you are duly compensated for your injury, both now and for the future.
A BRAIN AND HEAD INJURY LAWYER HANDLES CASES OF HEAD INJURIES THAT HAVE HAD LONG TERM EFFECTS
Seek the help of a qualified medical professional if you have experienced any of the following:
- Tingling, numbness, or weakness in your hands or arms
- Any neck pain following a blow to the head
- Inflammation or swelling of the neck
- Sharp, shooting pain in either one or both arms
- Neck pain or stiffness that persists for more than a few days

HEAD INJURY LAWYERS CAN ALSO HELP GET COMPENSATION FOR VICTIMS OF BACK INJURIES
The severity of a back injury often depends on the point at which the spinal cord becomes damaged. At Winters & Yonker, we believe that every back injury should be taken seriously.
Back injuries can be both painful and debilitating. In more than a few cases, they require surgery to correct the problems they cause. A significant back injury could prevent you from ever returning to work. Back injuries are common in construction, manufacturing, and landscaping jobs as well as many others that place similar physical demands on the worker.
