New York Brain Injury Lawyers
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is caused by a hard impact to the head, neck or spinal cord. This blunt force trauma damages the body’s cells, causing localized nerve damage. Depending on the location and severity of a hit to the head, differing brain functions can be impaired.

According to the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, the leading causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries are as follows:
- Slip / Trip & Fall causing victim to hit their head
- Automobile Accidents causing blow to the head
- Workplace Injury & Construction Site Accidents, including being hit by falling object or collapsed scaffold
- Police Brutality & Security Guard cases, including assault & battery, battered spouse & shaken baby
These accidents can produce enough force to penetrate the protection of the brain provided by the skull.
Young children and elderly adults are most susceptible to traumatic brain injuries because of weaker bone structure. These cases require special review of future damages by experienced brain injury lawyers.

Traumatic Brain Injury Accidents
Patients hurting their head in an accident may suffer a concussion or fade into a coma. Loss of consciousness for several seconds to a few minutes indicates a serious trauma to the head.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include feelings of dizziness or fainting spells. Senses of touch / feeling, eye sight and smell can also be diminished by brain damage. These symptoms can be instantly apparent following an accident, or can occur over the weeks and months that follow the traumatic impact to the head.
A traumatic brain injury can leave the patient perminently diabled. The victim may have short or long term memory loss, and can experience stark personality changes.
Treatment for a traumatic brain injury involves careful supervision of a neurologist and physical therapist.
The expense of traumatic brain injury treatment can be recovered from a negligent party responsible for the accident. But the law limits your time to sue.
