He handles all types of brain injury (TBI) cases in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, South Florida and in all other areas of Florida.

Brain injuries can be either traumatic or non-traumatic. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) typically result from blows to the head. They can involve brain bleeds, require emergency brain surgery, and can result in all sorts of deficits for the victim.
Non-traumatic brain injuries can result from anoxic/hypoxic events (in which the brain is deprived of oxygen for some period and is injured as a result), meningitis or encephalitis (in which the brain is injured as a result of a bacterial or viral infection), or overdose of some drug, narcotic or pharmaceutical. These causes can all be related to medical malpractice. Brain injury can also result from exposure to a toxic/poisonous gas such as carbon monoxide.

If you sustain a brain injury in any type of accident, you will probably need to see multiple doctors in order to obtain the proper treatment. One type of doctor you will probably need to see is a neurologist. This doctor will most likely order an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT scan, or DTI testing. These brain studies will reveal the extent of your brain injury. If your brain injury is mild (i.e., a concussion), the neurologist may treat you conservatively.
On the other hand, if you have a brain bleed or other severe brain injury, you may need more aggressive treatment. A neurosurgeon may be necessary to perform emergency brain surgery.Discuss your Rights with a South Florida Brain Injury Law Firm
Following a brain injury, you may unfortunately wind up with permanent impairments – including speech problems and slurred speech, gait difficulties and limps, amnesia and other memory problems, and seizures. These symptoms can be the result of atrophy in your brain or low blood flow to certain parts of your brain (including the frontal lobe). In order to gauge your level of cognitive impairment, you may need to see a neuropsychologist – who may order neuropsychological testing. The neuropsychologist will compare the results from the neuropsych testing to a baseline (i.e, how you were before the accident) and determine the effects of the accident on your cognitive abilities.
Depending on the level of your speech and difficulties, you may also need to see a speech therapist to help you with your speech. Depending on the level of your gait difficulties, you may likewise need to see a physical therapist to help you with your gate.
If you are experiencing seizures after your brain injury, you may need to remain on prescription medication in order to prevent further seizures – possibly for the rest of your life.Contact Broward County Brain Injury Lawyer Anthony Quackenbush
