Traumatic Brain Injury

Boca Raton Personal Injury Lawyer

Every year, almost 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States alone. Most people are able to experience normal life without suffering serious repercussions. Unfortunately, in about 125,000 annual cases, TBI causes permanent disability. In the state of Florida alone more than 210,000 suffer from brain injuries.

If you or someone close to you has been the victim of brain trauma you may be entitled to compensatory funds. It is strongly recommended that you contact a Boca Raton personal injury attorney immediately for legal counsel.

The causes of brain injury are as varied as the results. A situation that involves extended oxygen deprivation - such as birth trauma or near drowning - can cause TBI, as can an external blow or penetrating head injury. Not all brain injuries involve a fractured skull. Closed head injuries can also cause brain trauma, such as the "coup contrecoup" injury in which the brain hits first the front, then the back of the victim's skull.

Both penetrating injuries and closed head injuries can cause bruising of the brain tissue and / or lacerations, bleeding, and nerve damage within the brain. In Florida, the most common cause is falling, which accounts for 42 percent of all brain injuries. Traffic crashes - such as car accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents - are the second-most common cause (21 percent).

Because the levels and symptoms of brain injury can suffer vary so widely, some victims may not know that they have been injured right away. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and may include headaches, dizziness, seizures, convulsions, inability to process information, forgetfulness, nausea, memory loss, lightheadedness, altered sleep, blurred vision, fatigue, irritability, and sudden language difficulties. In extremely severe cases, TBI can lead to coma or even death.

Hope for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims

No matter what level of trauma occurred, there are treatments designed to help those who have suffered a brain injury. These treatments have helped numerous TBI victims improve. Unfortunately, these treatments can be expensive. If your traumatic brain injury was the result of someone else's negligence or misconduct, there are laws that protect you and entitle you to compensation in many cases. The best course of action is to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can assess the special circumstances of your situation and help you determine which course of action to take.

Our Client's Testimonials

  • They relieved my stress and worry immediately.

    “Mr. Willis managed my case with effectiveness, efficiency, and with kindness. After the initial contact, Mr. Willis and his secretary, Helene, made it so that I never had to make another phone call or supply any further information. They relieved my stress and worry immediately, and that continued throughout to the conclusion of my case. Both Mr. Willis and Helene were accessible, caring, and responded to my questions quickly. I never had any doubt that they knew me and my case thoroughly. They were professional and kind, and I left any encounter with them feeling uplifted. In summary, I highly recommend Willis Law, P.A. for legal counsel. It is a relief to find a lawyer who is trustworthy, skilled, hardworking, and caring.”


  • Dedicated and Professional Legal Representation

    “I had a personal injury and needed legal advice and assistance. After seeing all the advertisements and the unflattering commentary about Personal Injury Attorneys I was very cautious. I needed coverage for my medical bills and had no desire to get rich. John put me at ease from the beginning. He said in no uncertain terms that if I was there to get rich he would not represent me. Instead John and his excellent assistant Helene were professional and treated me as if I was their only case. Their guidance through complicated insurance claims and negotiations with the medical billing offices allowed me to concentrate on recovering from my injury. No, I did not get rich. but my claim was effectively and reasonably resolved and I could not have made it with out John and Helene. Anyone seeking dedicated and professional legal representation, Willis Law will be an excellent choice!”


  • John Willis is wonderful.

    “John Willis is wonderful. I couldn't never thank him enough for helping me with my case. Working with John Willis and his paralegal Helene was an amazing experience. I got in a car wreck and needed medical attention afterwards. As soon as the doctors office made their claim to the insurance company my phone started blowing up. I was not at fault for the wreck but I felt like I did something wrong by the way the insurance company's kept calling me with 20 questions and repeatedly asking me the same questions over and over again. Deciding to ask for John Willis for help was the best decision I could have made. I know my case was not an easy one but that did not stop them for fighting to get me the best outcome they could. I would so recommend Willis Law, PA without any hesitation. I loved knowing I had someone like him looking out for me and if the day were to ever come again that I found myself in need of some help, he would be the first person I would call.

  • Well-prepared, On-time and Responsive

    “I have found John to be the most professional attorney exhibiting legal s kills and integrity beyond my expectations. He handled my son's Pl case with great results also. My case was water damage, mold and permanent injury. He researched and argued for my case on a monthly basis, it seemed, for over 3 years. Anything that was thrown at us by the most unprofessional defense attorneys, he was able to take before the judge and resolve the problem. It was a difficult case but he maintained ethical decision making and etiquette throughout. He was always well prepared, on time and responsive. John is well- respected in the community. He was very supportive with me in a positive but practical manner. John was always looking for the best ways to resolve the case. His negotiating skills are phenomenal. He has strength that won't back down to anyone. I believe that all his fine qualities, his professionalism, integrity, s strength, legal knowledge and ability to project that knowledge clearly - written and verbal - are the reasons he is so successful. I am proud to have had John Willis represent me. I am pleased with the settlement he negotiated. I would recommend John to represent any case, if he takes it he will do his best. And that is great!!!”
