Frontal Lobe Brain Injuries

A brain injury, infection, stroke, or neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s usually cause damage to the frontal lobe. This lobe is located behind the forehead and has a right and left hemisphere. It is the area responsible for cognitive functions such as memory, emotions, judgment, and language. When the frontal lobe is injured, almost every aspect of a person’s life is affected, including the ability to work and/or maintain a relationship. The person may no longer be able to enjoy the quality of life they once had.

Many types of injuries can cause damage to the frontal lobe of the brain and result in serious, long-term consequences. In addition to a stroke or tumor growth, frontal lobe injuries can result from physical trauma.

Causes of Brain Trauma

  • Motorcycle or bicycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog attacks
  • Sports accidents
  • Acts of violence

Compensation for Florida Brain Injuries

After an accident, it is important to seek medical assistance for your injuries. However, a brain injury may not be as visible as a cut or broken bone, but it can be even more serious. A medical professional will evaluate the severity of the brain injury and determine a treatment plan. Recovery may be long, and the person may never fully regain the abilities they once had.

If the frontal lobe brain injury was the result of another party’s negligence, it is important to contact a brain injury lawyer immediately. If the brain injury victim is unable to file a claim on their own, a family member may wish to pursue a claim on their behalf. An experienced lawyer will investigate the case and determine who can be held liable for your loved one’s brain injury.
