New York Boating Accident Lawyers
NYC Lawyers Representing Head Injury Victims
The brain is delicate, and a sudden blow or jolt to the head can do serious harm, even when the skull is not fractured in any way. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most serious injuries a person can suffer, and it can be particularly difficult to diagnose or quantify.
At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City traumatic brain injury lawyers are experienced at helping accident victims identify the causes and consequences of their head injuries and pursue the full compensation they deserve from the responsible parties.
Our lead attorney, David Perecman, has more than 30 years of New York personal injury experience. Based in Manhattan, our firm serves clients in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island and Westchester. For a free consultation, contact us today.
Identifying and Seeking Compensation for the Symptoms of Brain Damage
A traumatic brain injury is a trauma to the head that causes brain damage. The trauma could be a skull fracture, a concussion, or the experience of having one’s head suddenly shaken back and forth or side to side. TBIs often occur in accidents such as the following:
- Vehicle accidents: The amount of force placed on the human body by a vehicle rapidly colliding with another and coming to a halt can result in serious brain damage.
- Construction accidents: When construction workers are not adequately protected, they can suffer serious head traumas in falls from scaffolds and other job site accidents.
- Premises accidents: Slip-and-fall accidents and other accidents caused by unsafe property conditions are another major cause of traumatic brain injuries.
TBIs are not always diagnosed immediately. Axonal damage and other forms of brain damage can have subtle, yet serious consequences such as memory problems, insomnia, inability to concentrate, difficulties completing basic tasks and lack of emotional control.
Our experienced lawyers work closely with knowledgeable medical experts to get our clients’ injuries diagnosed and compensated. Let us put our experience and passion to work for you.At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we stand ready, able and willing to represent people who have been injured in boat accidents.

We start to help our clients by thoroughly investigating the accident’s cause to determine the most effective legal strategy.
Our New York City law firm will assess the financial impact and long-term consequences of the boating accident. Then, we will carefully consider the most effective way of pursuing compensation on your behalf for medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.
Representing Boat Accident Injury Victims
We represent clients who have been injured in a boat accident involving any of the following:
- Collisions with other boats
- Mechanical defects
- Driver inexperience
- Driving while intoxicated
- Lack of flotation devices
- Excessive speeding
- Water skiing accidents
When a boat accident is caused by driver negligence, or the negligence of a product manufacturer, they can be held responsible for the harm caused.
In certain boating accident cases, admiralty law may apply. It is important to work with an attorney who understands both the personal injury component of a case, as well as the admiralty law component, if applicable. Admiralty law jurisdiction may apply if the boating accident occurred on navigable waters (which generally includes waters used for commerce, trade, or travel.) State law generally applies when accidents occur on lakes in New York state.
