A traumatic brain injury may happen if a Florida resident suffers a blow to their head or a penetration injury that affects their brain. Though they may range from mild to severe, traumatic brain injuries can happen when negligence-based accidents occur. Car accidents, slips and falls, consumer product hazards and a myriad of other sources of injury can result in traumatic brain injuries.
Any driver who chooses to operate a vehicle on Florida roads should be prepared to do so with care and consideration for their fellow motorists. That is because they have a legal duty of care to act as a reasonable person would when they get behind the wheel of a car. This includes private drivers of personal vehicles as well as commercial drivers of large trucks.
