New York Traumatic Brain Injuries
Learn About Our New York Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Motor vehicle accidents and slip and falls are two of the leading causes of brain injuries in the United States. Damage to the brain can also occur because of workplace accidents, and other incidents caused by negligence or wrongdoing.
A brain injury is catastrophic and impacts every aspect of your life. Brain injuries are very expensive to treat and can often be permanent in nature or even fatal. The major medical specialty involved in the care of head injuries is Neurology and rehabilitation medicine. New York law protects you if someone caused your brain injury, but proving all the elements of a brain injury case requires the skill and dedication of a qualified lawyer.

Common Causes of Head Injuries
Brain injuries have several common causes:
- deprivation of oxygen;
- Slip and falls;
- car accidents; and
- workplace accidents frequently cause trauma-related head injuries.
When brain cell death occurs, you cannot recover the lost cells and you may experience permanent cognitive impairments. Even a relatively minor trauma can have a dramatic impact on your brain structure and affect the function of your brain. Both open and closed head wounds can cause the type of trauma that will affect your brain in ways that impair you for the rest of your life.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common type of brain injury and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there were 2.5 million TBIs in 2010 alone. Concussions are the most common TBI, but more severe injuries can occur and it may be possible that TBI victims will lose consciousness for an extended period of time or even die from their injuries.
Sufferers of a TBI may experience temporary or permanent symptoms that include:
- Ringing in the ears
- Memory problems
- Communication/ speech impairments
- Loss of consciousness
- Cognitive limitations
- Changes in mood or behavior
- Impaired judgment
You may require a lengthy and expensive rehabilitation period to try to relearn basic life activities when you suffer a head injury. In some cases, even rehabilitation will be unable to restore full functionality and you will need round-the-clock medical assistance. It is also common for TBI victims to be forced to give up work or to be unable to earn the same level of income as before their injury.
The parties responsible for harming you should cover all of these costs and losses, as well as compensate you for pain and suffering, the loss of your quality of life, or the death of a loved one due to a TBI.
