Brain Injury

New York City Brain Injury Attorneys

About two million traumatic brain injuries (TBI) occur every year, with 500,000 requiring admission to a hospital and
about 140,000 resulting in death. Between 70,000 and 90,000 of the survivors
suffer lifelong disabilities. Each lawyer at Rubenstein & Rynecki
has extensive experience fighting for maximum awards for individuals in
Manhattan, NYC, and elsewhere in New York suffering brain injuries caused
by the negligent or willful acts of others.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

TBI typically results from trauma to the brain, often when the head hits
an object or when objects pierce the skull and enter brain tissue. While
brain injuries often occur as the result of sporting accidents, perhaps
the most common causes involve
car collisions,
construction accidents, and
slips or falls on
unsafe premises.

When victims lose consciousness or cut their heads, they typically obtain
the immediate medical attention they need. But identifying the full extent
of brain damage may pose challenges when victims initially experience
relatively mild symptoms like
dizziness, or
nausea. To ensure the best medical results, anyone who incurs a head injury should
seek immediate medical attention to help accurately diagnose the extent
of the injury and begin medical treatment.

Identifying Liability and Expenses

Individuals who survive TBI can face five to ten years of medical treatment,
physical therapy, and rehabilitation, and those with permanent disabilities
can face long lives dealing with the costs of these services – potentially
millions of dollars. Under NY
comparative negligence law, injury victims can pursue partial compensation from negligent parties
even when victims share responsibility for the accidents. However, the
law requires compelling evidence of the liability of each party and the
value of the claim.

Our attorneys begin each legal case by analyzing any evidence supplied
by accident victims and witnesses. Particularly for complex situations,
such as multi-vehicle accidents, we often call on our network of investigative
specialists who may look at damage to all vehicles, the accident scene,
and any available forensic evidence to develop an accurate scenario of
how the accident occurred. This analysis can provide compelling evidence
when proving liability.

The medical records and receipts of the victim provide evidence of actual
incurred expenses, but they do not predict the wide range of expenses
a victim might expect over a lifetime. With over three decades of experience and a
record of success obtaining recovery for our clients, our own familiarity with the issues
combined with information we obtain from medical and other specialists
help ensure that we can prove the full costs victims need to pursue to
cover a potential lifetime of expenses.
