Recovery for Serious Injuries in NYC Accident Cases
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from almost any kind of accident. Anytime a person is involved in an accident, the potential of suffering a traumatic brain injury exists. Anytime someone gets hit in the head, slams their head into an object, such as a car windshield, pavement, ground or suffers a blow to the head, a violent shake, swelling, infection or a medical mistake, they can suffer a traumatic brain injury. A person who is knocked unconscious may have sustained traumatic brain damage. Even brain injuries that the medical community refers to as minor can cause severe pain and extensive physical and mental impairments. Moderate to serious brain damage can result in permanent, severely debilitating problems.

Importance of Early and Aggressive Head Injury Treatment
Traumatic brain injury has serious repercussions. And yet, you may not even realize you suffered TBI. Symptoms may only slowly become obvious to friends, family and coworkers many days, weeks or months later. However, early medical care may make a difference in how much functionality you recover.
If you hit your head in a car crash, fall, workplace injury, assault, been knocked unconscious in any accident or incident, you should seek immediate medical care. A doctor can evaluate your condition, prescribe diagnostic tests and assess the damage. Doctors can deliver the appropriate medical treatments and rehabilitation to protect your brain from further damage and improve your health.
Living with Permanent Brain Damage
TBI may result in permanent disabilities that can affect your family, your work and your quality of life. You may require extensive treatments and rehabilitation to relearn everyday tasks and you may never fully recover your memory, cognitive skills, motor skills and sensation. You may suffer nerve damage, paralysis, behavior problems, depression and seizures. Our goal is to help you recover as much functionality as medically possible and improve your quality of life in light of your disabilities. We keep your future needs in mind as we calculate the money you deserve.
