Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Each year in the United States an estimated 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), resulting from a force or blow to the head that can disrupt brain functioning. A TBI can range in severity from a mild concussion to the extremes of a coma or of a persistent vegetative state, or even death. At least 5.3 million Americans currently live with disabilities resulting from TBI. The leading causes of these types of injuries are:
- Vehicle accidents and crashes
- Firearm use
- Slips and/or falls
The Law Offices of Bradley A. Sacks has successfully represented clients suffering from brain injuries and their loved ones located in New York City, the greater metropolitan area and throughout New York State. Our firm's extensive experience in this area enables us to understand that the long-term effects of TBI can be subtle and difficult to ascertain. The injuries an individual suffers as a result of a TBI can be acute and life changing. Sometimes the effects of what appears to be a minor injury can be perplexing to doctors treating patients. Even mild brain injury can have long-term effects upon personality, memory and the ability to concentrate on everyday routine tasks. Doctors are only beginning to understand these changes and how to document them. Our firm has been successful in properly presenting this complicated information in a way that convinces defense attorneys, insurance companies and juries that these injuries exist and were in fact caused by the accident. By selecting appropriate expert witnesses and working with your treating doctors, we are able to objectively document your injury to obtain the best possible result for you.
We are aware that after experiencing such trauma, your immediate goals involve making sure medical bills are paid and covered, ensuring you or your loved will not suffer financially through any lost earnings, and assuring the appropriate insurance company will cover future treatment relating to the injury. Our expertise extends to aiding you with such crucial matters.
Because of our experience with these types of injuries, we understand the changes in your life and routines. We will handle your case with compassion, as well as strive to prevent the litigation process from creating more stress for you.
