New York Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Represent Both Injury Victims and Defendants
Providing experienced and focused representation for those involved in Mineola TBI claims
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a penetrating or concussive head wound that causes damage to the brain and disrupts its normal function. TBIs occur when the head violently and suddenly hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. The attorneys at Cassisi & Cassisi, P.C. are familiar with the medical and legal issues involved in brain damage claims and provide significant benefits in the resolution of your case. Our firm represents the injured and their families as well as those who are defending against a New York personal injury lawsuit.
Understanding traumatic brain injuries
Brain injuries range from mild concussions to serious diffuse axonal injury that causes coma or death. There are two basic types of traumatic brain injuries. In open head injuries, the skull is fractured. A closed head injury does not involve a skull fracture, but these injuries can be even more serious, because the brain may swell or blood clots may form under the skull. Brain injuries can cause many complications even when the victim appears outwardly healthy.
Helping traumatic brain injury victims get compensation
Because these injuries can result in serious and long-lasting damage that affects your ability to perform everyday activities, it is important to retain an experienced Mineola traumatic brain injury attorney to protect your interests. Our attorneys represent victims of all types of accidents including car accidents, truck wrecks, motorcycle crashes, falls and work injuries.
People who have sustained a TBI may struggle with disabilities including the following:
- Speech and language deficits such as difficulty speaking, reading or writing
- Memory loss
- Emotional problems
- Motor control
- Partial or total vision loss
- Loss of the sense of touch, smell or taste
Our attorneys seek to help head injury victims recover damages for their medical expenses, their diminished earning potential, the costs of future care, and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
