A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change someone’s life. An injury directly to the brain from a bump or blow, it disrupts the brain’s normal function, with the potential for lasting, even permanent effects.
This can result in delayed cognitive function, memory loss, and other maladies that can profoundly affect the life of someone.

Some TBIs can be caused due to the negligence of another party. This includes:
Proving that negligence played a part in your injury can be grounds to file a claim for maximum compensation.
For most types of cases, the New York statute of limitations allows for three years from the date of an injury to file a claim or lawsuit. This does not mean that you have to be ready to walk into court within three years; it just means that papers must be filed within that period.
An exception to this that might be very relevant in a traumatic brain injury case is that certain problems may not come to light immediately after the trauma. For example, it might take several months for chronic headaches to begin. In such an instance, you would have three years from the date of discovery.
