This is one of the most heart-breaking components of personal injury law. Property such as homes, cars, and boats can always be replaced. But representing victims of brain injuries is
an altogether different realm.
The onset of a brain injury, as can reasonably be assumed, is always a highly scary and dire matter.
Often, there is no such thing as a full recovery.
When someone sustains a brain injury, inevitable lifestyle changes are sure to have a direct impact on family members and other loved ones.
Causes for brain injuries can vary greatly. Whether the injury occurred as a result of participation in a sporting event, or because of the effects of a car, airplane, or boating accident, or another activity or occurrence altogether, it is vital that the most qualified medical professionals are sought out to ensure the best chances for healing.
Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft has been an ardent and zealous advocate for head and brain injury victims in and around New York City for the last nine decades.
If you or one of your loved ones has sustained this type of injury, we would welcome the chance to assist, both in your recovery, and in the pursuit of receiving remuneration from the guilty party for your doctor's bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenditures.
Brain damage comes in many forms. After a sudden and direct impact to the cranium, any number of possible injuries can result, such as: concussions; hemorrhages; sub-dermal hematomas; swelling, blood and water on the brain; intra-cranial pressure; and global hypoxia. Of course, that is merely a partial list.
Any trauma to the head that is sustained in any fashion, be it from an assault and battery crime, a birthing-related injury, a mishap on a ride at an amusement or theme park, a sports-related accident, or a bumping or smashing of the head, can result in serious brain damage.
When such a vital human organ is affected, the list of potential consequences is staggering. Brain damage can result in the loss of basic faculties, such as the ability to think, reason, remember, recognize loved ones, and speak. We often hear of instances in which brain damage leads to a long-term coma or even permanent vegetative states.
Clearly, then, the importance of retaining a qualified, competent, and passionate attorney could never be greater.
