NYC Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are Dedicated To Your Case

Serious injuries can have a lifetime effect. The lawyers at the Perecman Law Film are ready to fight on your behalf to attain any and all compensation that you deserve.

Filing a Claim for Traumatic Brain Injury

Depending on the severity, a traumatic brain injury can impact someone’s life forever. Also referred to as TBIs, these injuries can develop mild, moderate, or severe symptoms in the victim. TBI is often caused by some kind of blunt force to the head, when the head is rattled violently, or when an object pierces through the skull and in the brain. This can occur in any serious accident such as a car accident or a workplace accident on a construction site.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City personal injury attorneys have over 40 years of experience representing clients in claims involving all kinds of accidents, including those resulting in serious injuries. We feel it is our duty to help injury victims seek the compensation they need and deserve if their pain was caused by someone else. TBIs are very serious and our firm treats them as such when handling each case.

What are the Symptoms?

The symptoms arising from a TBI depend on the severity of the injury. Oftentimes, more mild injuries can result in headaches, confusion, dizziness, mood changes, and memory loss. If the injury is more severe, the symptoms can worsen and cause concern for the victim and his or her family. While moderate and severe TBI victims can still show the aforementioned symptoms, there are others that may be just as prominent and require more attention.

Symptoms of a severe TBI include, but are not limited to:

  • Seizures
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Slurred speech
  • Extreme nausea
  • Trouble waking from sleep

These are all serious symptoms with which to deal. You may also notice pupil dilation and loss of coordination. If you notice any of these signs, speak with a medical professional and explain the situation that led to the injury. If negligence was to blame for the injury-causing accident, you may be able to file a claim.

The Lifelong Impact of TBI

Depending on how severe the TBI is, surgery may be required to stop a brain bleed or to repair hematomas. While mild TBIs may not cause as much concern for individuals, those who suffer a severe TBI may have to worry about how the injury will affect the rest of their lives. This may include many hospital visits, the inability to earn an income, and more.

Our team looks to find the most appropriate legal action for you during your time of need. We aim to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. We can even work with Social Security Disability Insurance if necessary. Don’t hesitate after suffering a TBI after somebody else’s negligent behavior.
