Brain Injury Attorney Long Island

Brain injuries can be life-altering and overwhelming events. In addition to the physical and cognitive consequences and sometimes long recovery times, individuals with brain injuries may face crippling medical costs and a sudden inability to care for themselves.

If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury because of the actions or inactions of another person or entity, you may be eligible for compensation. Consulting with a brain injury attorney in Long Island can help you understand your legal options. Contact Shulman & Hill for your free legal consultation today.

Brain Injury Complications

The brain is a delicate organ, and when it gets damaged, it can affect your body’s physical, mental, and emotional functions. Severe brain injuries can require a long time for recovery and rehabilitation which may prevent the individual from working or living independently.

As noted by the CDC, traumatic brain injuries were the cause of over 64,000 deaths in the United States in 2020. Accidents that may result in a sudden blow to the head, such as falls or car accidents, can cause traumatic brain injuries. People can experience a variety of symptoms after a traumatic brain injury, including the following:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Severe headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of coordination

Getting Treatment For a Brain Injury

If you think you may have experienced a head injury, it is critical to seek medical help. Doctors can run appropriate diagnostic tests and help you get prompt medical treatment. Even if you feel fine, it can help if you have a doctor evaluate you as symptoms may not present immediately.

Treatment for a brain injury may involve:

  • Restricting certain activities to prevent further injury
  • Medications to prevent seizures, reduce the amount of pressure in the brain, or induce a temporary coma to help reduce the amount of oxygen the brain requires to function
  • Surgery to help reduce pressure and bleeding within the brain

Sometimes, you will need help relearning motor skills or speech after a brain injury. You may need help from specialists like neurologists and physical therapists to help you regain motor and verbal skills. Rehab and recovery can also be expensive, leading many to wonder if compensation is possible after a traumatic brain injury.

Am I Entitled to Compensation For My Brain Injury?

Some brain injuries are the result of accidents that may have been prevented had another individual or entity not been careless. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, you may qualify to file a brain injury lawsuit to recover compensation for the harm you have suffered.

Examples of Long Island accidents that may result in a brain injury include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: If another driver was at fault for the crash that caused your injuries, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit
  • Falls: Property owners and contractors are responsible for maintaining safe premises. If you fall on a construction site or in a Long Island business that failed to clear slip and trip hazards such as wet floors or broken stairs, you may be able to pursue legal action
  • Being struck by an object: Any blows to the head can cause brain injuries, particularly if an object falls from a great height. If a Long Island property owner, general contractor, or subcontractor caused an accident to occur they may be held liable for your injuries

A successful brain injury lawsuit may help you recover compensation for the following:

  • Your pain and suffering caused by the accident
  • Your medical bills related to your injury
  • Lost income or reduced earning capacity
  • Rehab costs or costs from accommodations you need because of new disabilities

If your loved one’s brain injury was fatal, you might be able to get compensation to help cover funeral costs and loss of financial support.

The exact amount of compensation you can get will depend on the unique circumstances of your case. How the accident occurred as well as the extent of losses and complications resulting from the brain injury may influence the final compensation amount.
