Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

A traumatic brain injury is caused by head trauma, which can result from a skull fracture, concussion or sudden shaking of the head. Traumatic brain injuries commonly result from the following types of accidents:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Construction accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Sporting accidents
  • Medical malpractice

The cause of a traumatic brain injury can be particularly important, as this can help determine if the victim has legal recourse to recover financial compensation. Generally, those who have sustained a brain injury in New York due to another's negligence, and have suffered losses as a result, may be able to file a claim.
