Jaw Pain From A Car Accident: It's More Common Than You Think

We have all heard about TMJ, also known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.  For some time, TMJ was considered a disorder which affected only those with prior teeth or jaw issues. A person could expect to have some sort of TMJ pain if they had chipped or missing teeth, or if they were prone to grinding their teeth at night. But there is actually another, lesser known, cause. For a surprising number of individuals, TMJ pain did not begin until after they experienced a traumatic incident. According to statistics published in the Journal of the American Dental Association in 1990, 44% to 99% of TMJ problems are caused by trauma. By trauma, we mean an injury as obvious as a blow to the jaw with a fist or something as subtle as a whiplash injury with direct trauma to the head or jaw. With that being said, the most common form of such trauma is a car accident.

I Haven’t Received My Wage Loss Check. What Are My Options?

When injured on the job, the workers compensation carrier is obligated to pay lost wages to you for the period of time you are determined to be incapable of working.  The determination regarding your work status must be made by a doctor authorized by the workers compensation carrier.   There are only 3 determinations a workers compensation doctor can make regarding your work status.  1.  No work status.  2.  Release to work with restrictions.  3.  Released to work with no restrictions.  There is a specific amount you are eligible to receive from the work comp carrier in the form of wage loss benefits.  This amount is referred to as your “compensation rate,” or “comp rate,” for short.  Your comp rate is determined through applying a specific formula.

*Tampa Bay Claim For Concussion & Post Concussion Syndrome8

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) that usually occurs after a blow to the head. Concussions can be caused by any number of causes including car accidents, falls, as well as sport-related injuries.  The symptoms of concussion can include headaches, inability to concentrate, and impairment of memory, judgment, balance and/or coordination. After a concussion, the blood vessels in the brain are stretched and the nerves are damaged.  It can be hard to diagnose this type of Traumatic Brain Injury as it may not always be revealed in diagnostic testing.  Fortunately, most concussions are mild, and, therefore, most people who get concussions recover fully.
What is a Florida Post-Concussion Syndrome?

Post-concussion syndrome is a complex condition in which the patient’s symptoms can last for weeks, months, or even a year or more after the concussion. Approximately 10% of people who get concussions suffer from post-concussion syndrome. According to Smithsonian.com, a new study has shown that abnormalities in the brain caused by a concussion can persist for as long as four months after an injury happens, even after the behavioral symptoms of a concussion have ended.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

When compared to a vehicle, a motorcycle itself provides no head injury protection to the rider or passenger. A vehicle is closed inside of a cage with airbags and seatbelts. An automobile has more weight and bulk than a motorcycle. It also has four wheels and due to its size, it is easier to see. What a motorcycle sacrifices in weight, bulk and other protections of crashes is slightly offset by its agility, maneuverability, ability to stop hastily and capability to swerve when necessary.  Therefore, ejections from a motorcycle is a common reason for the severity of injuries. If a motorcycle hits a car, has to come to a sudden stop or other causes of accidents, the rider and passenger with be forcibly thrown off of the seat and strike objects in the path as well as the ground.

What Are The Common Accident Injuries?
The CDC studied about 1,222,000 people who were treated in the U.S. emergency rooms for non-fatal, motorcycle-related injuries between 2001 and 2008, then recorded their injuries by location on the body. Some other common injuries have cause long-term medical hospitalizations as well. These injuries include:

Victims of Drunk Driving: What You Need To Know

In 2013, more than 10,000 Americans died in accidents involving drunk drivers. Thousands more victims suffer injuries, many of them life-altering, from collisions caused by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol.

If a driver was drunk when he or she was involved in an accident, that driver is nearly always going to be determined to be the party responsible for any victims’ injuries. Consuming alcohol inhibits an individual’s ability to perceive distances, react to obstacles and other drivers, judge his or her surroundings, and maintain the ability to walk or drive in a straight line. The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for drivers throughout the United States is .08%. Anybody found operating a motor vehicle whose BAC is at or above this limit may face a charge for driving under the influence (DUI).

Do I Have A Wrongful Death Case?

When an individual dies in an accident that he or she did not cause, his or her death is ruled to be a wrongful death. This means that another party caused the victim’s death through negligence or reckless behavior. When a wrongful death occurs, the victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for the death’s insurer to seek monetary compensation for their loss. This compensation can cover a variety of economic damages that a family suffers when an individual dies. The specific damages that a family may seek depend on both the victim’s position in his or her family and the relative seeking the damages.

New Port Richey Back Injuries

Automobile accidents occur every day. Unfortunately, damage from these crashes is not always limited to the vehicles involved. On the list of common injuries caused by car accidents, back injuries occur all too often. Even a seemingly minor accident can cause back injuries in part because the human body simply is not designed to absorb the jarring impact of a car accident, even a low-speed collision.

Who Is At Fault In a Wind Related Clearwater Truck Accident?

High winds can be extremely difficult to drive in, but operating a tractor trailer in high winds can become very hazardous. A trailer’s high profile can act like a sail if struck broadside by a strong wind gust. Clearwater truck accidents are likely in high winds especially on the causeway and local bridges. Winds blowing across water have nothing to slow the force until they strike an obstruction. A big rig traveling with an empty trailer across a bridge or causeway is particularly vulnerable to tipping over when slammed by a high wind gust.

The Aftermath of a Traumatic Brain Injury

A TBI is a common injury and may be missed initially when the medical team is focused on saving an individual’s life. The two different classifications of TBIs, mild and severe, both have lasting side effects that can impede on the injured victim’s life. A mild TBI is diagnosed when the patient has a loss of consciousness and/or confusion and disorientation that is shorter than 30 minutes. Some known lasting effects include cognitive problems such as headache, difficulty thinking, memory problems, attention deficits, mood swings and frustration. While these injuries are commonly overlooked, the effect of TBIs on the family and the injured person can be overwhelming.

An individual will be categorized as a severe brain injury victim when the specific injury is associated with loss of consciousness for more than 30 minutes and memory loss after the injury or penetrating skull injury is longer than 24 hours. The range of deficit goes from impairment of higher level cognitive functions to comatose states. Some potential impairments may include limited functions of legs or arms, abnormal speech or language, loss of thinking ability or emotional problems.

Tina is an elite lawyer and I am proud to call her my friend. As a practicing trial lawyer, I can attest to the fact that very few of my colleagues actively litigate cases. Further, even fewer attorneys possess the resources, knowledge and experience to competently handle catastrophic injury cases. Tina Willis is an attorney that I would not hesitate in recommending her services to any individual or family that has been harmed due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. - Matthew Dolman

I have had the opportunity to work with Bill Hurst and Alexander Limontes on Indiana cases and they are truly among the finest trial attorneys and personal injury lawyers in the U.S., let alone Indiana. Bill and Alex provide phenomenal service and personal attention to their clients which is rare in a business dominated by television lawyers who spend significant funds to obtain clients whom they ignore and allow a paralegal to run the case. In fact, we often hear many individuals complain that they never speak to a lawyer during their case. Bill and Alex are just the opposite and clients have all reported back to me that they were extremely satisfied with the prompt and personal attention they received. Bill has a national reputation as a civil trial attorney which is well deserved. I would not hesitate to refer future clients (when the client either resides in Indiana or the accident took place there) to Bill Hurst and Alex Limontes.

Chris Zachar is a nationally recognized trial attorney. Although my practice is in Clearwater, we have interacted with Chris multiple times on several issues including Floridians who were injured in Arizona. Chris provides personal attention to his clients and the service his firm affords is quite impressive. However, the most important factor in judging Chris as a lawyer is his track record in taking cases to trial. Insurance carriers are well aware of his reputation. Hence the reason we would not hesitate to recommend Chris Zazhar and Zachar Law Firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence of an individual or corporation.

Steven Gursten has a well earned national reputation as one of the premier plaintiff civil trial attorneys in the U.S. I have personally worked with both Steven and his law firm on behalf of two clients on separate cases wherein the individual resided in Florida but was injured in Michigan. He is a phenomenal lawyer and an even better person. His staff is equally a pleasure to deal with and the law firm is simply a first class operation. Steven was very attentive to my client's needs and he made certain that this was an easy process for them. I would not hesitate to recommend Steven Gursten or his law firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. Steve is known as a pre-eminent trial lawyer, but I was surprised at just how humble and pleasant he is in our dealings. Finally, this is the lawyer you call when your dealing with a defendant with unlimited resources. Steve and his firm have the ability to deal with even the biggest corporate giants and hold them accountable for the harms they caused and the losses you have suffered. - Matthew A. Dolman, Esq.
