Brain Injury Lawyer New York City

A brain injury is often the first serious injury to occur from an accident, but the last injury to be diagnosed by a doctor. The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury are often not immediately noticeable to the victim. It may take weeks or months for family members or co-workers to notice irritability, short-term memory loss or physical symptoms that are often attributed to a brain injury.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) is usually the result of trauma to the head. Quite simply, the brain is jarred against the side of the skull. This jarring of the brain can cause bleeding, bruising, or swelling to the brain, as well as damage to its nerves, tissues, and blood vessels. The severity of a Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) can range from a mild (a concussion) to moderate or severe. Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries (“TBI”) can tragically resulting in coma, or even death.
