New York Brain Injury Lawyer

Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Focused on Helping You Obtain Justice

The brain is the most delicate and integral part of the body. Unfortunately, it’s also an organ that can be severely damaged in nearly any type of accident. If you or a loved one was in an accident that resulted in a brain injury, you know how grave the consequences can be — physically, emotionally, and financially. Not only can the costs of medical bills quickly add up, but a brain injury victim’s life may be changed forever.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we understand the significant impact a brain injury can have on an accident victim and their family — and the economic hardship that can arise. With more than 80 years of experience handling a wide variety of personal injury lawsuits, our firm has secured substantial compensation for clients who have suffered from brain injuries in some of the most complex cases.

Handling a Wide Variety of Accidents That Can Cause Brain Injuries

Almost any accident involving a blow or jolt to the head can cause a brain injury. Critically, these types of injuries don’t always involve an obvious open wound or fracture to the skull. In many cases, the symptoms may not appear until days or weeks later. Whether you’ve been in a car accident, slipped and fell on ice, or were struck by falling debris on a construction site, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately to diagnose a brain injury as soon as possible.

The personal injury lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP have extensive experience handling a myriad of accidents that can lead to brain injury, including:

If you have suffered from a brain injury, you need a personal injury lawyer on your side who will aggressively fight for your rights — and identify every potential source of liability. Although a large sum of money cannot undo the damage that was done, it can at least help to ensure the best possible quality of life for you or your loved one after the accident. The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP will thoroughly investigate your case and expose the negligent conduct that led to your brain injury.

Proficient Brain Injury Lawyer Working to Maximize Your Compensation

Brain injuries can be devastating and require life-long care. A victim may suffer from a wide variety of symptoms ranging from physical discomfort to the inability to perform even simple tasks. Other consequences of a brain injury can include paralysis of any body part, cognitive loss, mood changes, slurred speech, constant sleepiness or wakefulness, and permanent disability. In severe cases, a brain injury can also be fatal.

By filing a personal injury action for your brain injury, you may be entitled to monetary recovery for your economic damages as well as your pain and suffering. Our lawyers strive to ensure you are adequately compensated for your unreimbursed medical expenses, time lost from work, and out-of-pocket expenses. We also work tirelessly to hold the negligent party accountable for the physical pain and emotional anguish you have experienced in connection with your injuries.

In addition, the lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP provide compassionate counsel and trusted representation to families who have lost loved ones to brain injuries. While no amount of money can ever compensate you for the grief and sorrow you are forced to endure, financial recovery may bring some closure — and help ensure justice is carried out.

Aggressive Litigators and Effective Negotiators for Brain Injury Victims

If you’ve suffered from a brain injury, it’s crucial to have representation you can rely on to obtain high-quality results in your case. The lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP regularly obtain substantial verdicts and settlements for clients who have sustained brain injuries.
