New York Brain Injury Lawyers

If you or a loved one suffers from a brain injury, you know that the grave consequences are not only physical but are also emotional and financial.
The brain is the most delicate and integral part of the body. It’s also an organ that can easily be damaged in almost any type of accident. Any injury to this area of the body can significantly alter a victim’s life.

Causes of a brain injury

Brain injuries commonly occur in the following types of accidents:
  • vehicle or motorcycle accidents
  • industrial or occupational accidents
  • construction accidents
  • physical assault
  • slips, trips & falls
  • medical malpractice
  • premise liability accidents

Consequences of a brain injury

After a brain or head injury, the victim may suffer from some of the following:
  • physical discomfort or inability to perform even simple tasks
  • chronic head or neck pain
  • paralysis of any body part
  • cognitive loss
  • dizziness, nausea, lack of balance
  • behavior or mood changes such as anger or sadness
  • slurred speech or inability to find words to express an idea
  • constant sleepiness or wakefulness
  • permanent disability
  • death

The list goes on. If you or a loved one has a brain injury due to an accident and are suffering from any of these symptoms, what you need most is justice.
