Brain Injury Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Brain injury occurs when the cells in the brain are damaged, due to traumatic injury. In the United States alone, over 2 million people suffer brain injuries every year. While some brain injuries are mild, others can be devastating and make life difficult for the rest of the victim’s life. The following is an overview of traumatic brain injuries, what causes them and how a personal injury lawyer can help if you have been injured.

Types Of Brain Injuries

There are two main types of brain injuries that can cause deficits:

  • Acquired Brain Injuries

Acquired brain injuries typically stem from pressure on the brain after a stroke or other medical event.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are the most common in accident victims because it occurs after head trauma. When the head receives a blow, the brain shifts inside the skull and becomes injured during the process.

What Causes Brain Injuries?

According to the Brain Injury Association Of New York State, the primary causes of brain injuries in the United States today are:

  • Accidental Falls

Approximately 32 percent of all traumatic brain injuries are the results of accidental falls. These falls can occur at home, work or in a retail setting.

  • Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury. Studies have shown that 17.3 percent of brain injuries occur during car, truck or motorcycle accidents.

  • Being Struck In The Head By An Object

Approximately 16.5 percent of brain injuries occur when the victim is struck in the head by a blunt object. This may occur during sporting events, accidents at home or in construction site accidents.

  • Battery And Assault

10 percent of traumatic brain injuries are acquired during an attack or assault.

Brain Injury Symptoms

People who suffer brain injuries can display a wide range of symptoms and deficits. Some of the most often seen symptoms in people who have suffered a head injury include:

  • Short Attention Span
  • Difficulty Processing Information
  • Memory Loss
  • Problems Expressing Thoughts
  • Balance Problems
  • Increased Pain Sensitivity
  • Tremors
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Seizures
  • Paralysis
  • Slurred Speech Pattern
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Sensitivity To Light
  • Losing Consciousness
  • Intolerance To Stress
  • Increased Sensitivity
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Heightened Emotions

Damages

If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident that caused a brain injury, you may be able to obtain a settlement for your injuries. Some damages you may be entitled to include:

  • Ambulance Costs
  • Doctor Bills
  • Cost Of Hospitalization
  • Price Of Necessary Medical Devices
  • Therapy Fees
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Emotional Distress
  • Pain And Suffering
  • Home Healthcare
  • Income Lost
  • Future Lost Wages

If you cannot return to work because you were disabled as a result of the accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the income you would have earned during the course of your career. This may also apply if you cannot return to the same line of work after the accident.

Time Limit

There is a certain amount of time in which you must file a lawsuit for a personal injury. In New York, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the date of the accident that caused your injuries. It is essential to file your lawsuit before this time period expires. Failure to do so may result in your case being dismissed and losing your rights to obtain compensation for your brain injury.

Proving Negligence

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation from the at-fault party. To accomplish this goal, you must be able to prove that your injuries were caused by the at-fault party, who acted recklessly. The opposing lawyers may claim you had pre-existing medical conditions that caused your deficits and not the accident you were involved in. You may be able to prove negligence if the at-fault party:

  • Was Under The Influence Of Drugs Or Alcohol
  • Failed To Obey Traffic Laws
  • Assaulted You
  • Acted Recklessly

How Can A Lawyer Help You?

Personal injury law is difficult to understand and should be handled by a competent personal injury attorney. Your attorney may be able to help you by:

  • Examining The Accident That Caused Your Injuries
  • Compiling Evidence
  • Interviewing Eyewitnesses
  • Speaking With Medical Experts
  • Negotiating With The Insurance Company
  • Preparing And Filing Court Docments
  • Representing You At Trial

While many personal injury cases are settled without going to trial, it is important to have a lawyer with trial experience in case it is necessary. If the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to pay, it may be necessary to have expert testimony from doctors who have treated your injuries.

If you were injured in an accident and suffered a brain injury, you may benefit from speaking with a personal injury attorney for advice. During an initial consultation, an attorney will go over the facts of your case and let you know the best way to move forward. Having an experienced brain injury lawyer on your side may increase your chances of receiving a fair settlement.

Contact a personal injury lawyer today if you have suffered a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence. Hiring a lawyer is the best way to protect your rights, so you can obtain a fair settlement. Having a competent attorney to guide you through the personal injury claims process will diminish the stress associated with brain injury cases.
