Brain Injuries Lawyers in New City, NY, Providing Compassionate Legal Services to Clients in Desperate Need
If you or a loved one have suffered a serious brain injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or malicious behavior, you may be entitled to seek compensation. Brain injuries are among the most dangerous and life-altering types of injuries that the human body can be asked to sustain. If this injury was caused by another person, then you have the legal right to hold them accountable and recover financial damages that may help with your recovery.
The legal process can be long and complicated, however. It is too much to ask for any ordinary citizen without any legal background to suddenly throw themselves into a legal matter when their livelihoods depend on it. So, it is far too much to ask anyone who has recently suffered a severe brain injury–someone who is dealing with recovery medically, adapting to new living conditions, and emotional distress–entering the legal process to present their case as an inexperienced and severely injured civilian.
You do not have to go through these legal battles alone. An experienced personal injury attorney could be an extremely useful ally in your pursuit of justice.

As your legal representatives, our lawyers will tend to all of your legal needs in your traumatic brain injury (TBI) case.

What are Different Types of Brain Injuries?
The brain is an extraordinarily complex organ, one that controls almost every aspect of a living, breathing body. The brain, along with the central nervous system (CNS), is responsible for controlling body movements, simple and complex motor skills, pain, and breathing. It also relays messages throughout the body relating to hunger, exhaustion, fear, and emotion. And while we, of course, understand that the human brain houses all of our thoughts, memories, language, and emotional responses, there is still so much about our brains that we do not understand.
We do understand their importance, though, and how the risk of injury can have devastating effects on the body, the mind, and the quality of life for the victim. There are many types of such traumatic brain injuries, ranging from mild to catastrophic.
Examples of brain injuries include:
- Birth injuries
- Brain hemorrhages
- Coup-contrecoup injuries
- Diffuse axonal injuries (DAI)
- Intracranial hematomas
- Penetrating brain injuries
- Second impact syndrome
What are Common Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
It may not always be readily apparent that a person has suffered a traumatic brain injury. There are symptoms to watch out for, though. If you’ve witnessed someone suffer a strong blow to the head, or if you yourself have recently experienced an accident, be on the lookout for these signs.
Symptoms of a TBI:
- Cognitive difficulties
- Convulsions and seizures
- Difficulty remembering or understanding what is being said to them
- Headaches and migraines
- Loss of consciousness
- Loss of memory
- Personality changes
- Slurred speech and difficulty communicating
- Tingling in hands and feet
- Unusual aggression, depression, and general agitation
- And, in some cases, death
Regardless of whether you do or do not notice any of these traumatic brain injury symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately. Only a trained medical professional can accurately diagnose a traumatic brain injury.
Should you Hire an Attorney for Your Brain Injury Case?
Sometimes victims of traumatic brain injuries are able to recover well with proper medical care and years of rehabilitation. However, in other injury cases, some victims can only be made more comfortable, as medical science is limited by just how much it can do for catastrophic injuries to the human brain.
A traumatic brain injury could cause loss of vision, loss of hearing, loss of ability to speak, seizure disorders, muscle atrophy, paralysis, cognitive difficulties, memory loss, comas, and death.
With the help of our law firm, you could recover maximum compensation from the at-fault party and their insurance company, which could provide for your recovery as you adjust to your life. This settlement can cover financial matters such as lost wages and unpaid medical bills, but it may also go towards future medical expenses, ongoing care, in-home help, physical therapy, speech therapy, medical devices, necessary modifications to your home, surgery, and any physical or mental pain and suffering.
