Where Can Brain Injury Patients in Hollywood Turn After a Car Collision?

For brain injury patients in Hollywood, fear and anxiety are common after an initial diagnosis. Whether you have sustained a traumatic brain injury in a workplace accident in Hollywood, through a sports injury, in a Hollywood traffic accident, or through some other way, it can be a devastating injury. You may need specialist care and treatment and you may find yourself struggling with challenging symptoms such as motor loss control issues, memory problems trouble with concentration, personality changes, and more.


It is normal to feel afraid and alone, but it is also important to remember that there are many places you can turn to for help, including:

1) The Brain Injury Association of Florida (BIAF) (http://www.biaf.org/). BIAF is a statewide nonprofit organization for traumatic brain injury patients and their caregivers. BIAF offers advocacy, support, education, and other help. They even have a toll-free number, 800-992-3442, if you need to speak to someone right away.

2) Support Groups.
Support groups help you meet others who have suffered a serious brain injury in your area as well as professionals who can help you. It is often very useful to speak to someone who has gone through a similar experience and who has advice to offer about practical matters. You can find a support group for brain injury patients in Florida at this website: http://www.byyourside.org/support/support-groups/. You can also set up your own support group by contacting BIAF.

3) The Florida Health Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program (http://www.floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-conditions/brain-and-spinal-cord-injuries/index.html). This government program can help you and your family find resources as well as case management services.

4) Your doctor. Your primary care physician can refer you to specialists and can provide you with follow-up care. They can also help you manage your care, especially if you need to work with multiple health professionals.

5) Your personal injury attorney. A lawyer can often help you find local resources that can help you. They can also help you pursue any avenues or options for compensation – which is important, since brain injury treatment and care can be very expensive and may not be covered by your insurance in all cases.

6) Your employer. If your brain injury took place at work, workers compensation and your employer may have options for you. However, before you accept a settlement or workers compensation benefits, be sure to speak with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your city; once you accept benefits or insurance money, you may not have the right to pursue compensation later on if your injuries end up costing more than you thought.

Charlie is a very skilled attorney that advocates hard for his clients. But the best part is he is an all around great guy. He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
I found Mr. Flaxman to be an excellent attorney for my personal injury case. This is actually the second time I have used him and he really represented my interests. He explained everything thoroughly and he was very available for my questions. Carol
