More than one million people sustain brain injuries each year in the United States, and the effects can be devastating. Some people may be able to make a full recovery after a brain injury, but other brain injuries may lead to permanent disability and sometimes death. The brain injury team at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C. is dedicated to helping brain injury victims and their families recover compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s fault.
No two brain injuries are the same. There are many types of brain injury symptoms, and injury victims may experience any number and combination of those symptoms. Common symptoms include temporary loss of consciousness, dizziness, confusion, and loss of memory. Brain injuries may also cause pain, loss of concentration, sleep disturbances, irritability, and changes in personality. Severe brain injuries can cause loss of mobility and other bodily functions.
After a brain injury, it is critical to make sure that you get the medical treatment that you need. It is also important to make sure that you recover the compensation that you deserve, and we can help with both. Our brain injury attorneys can help you get an expert brain injury diagnosis and evaluation so that you can get appropriate medical treatment.
Your brain injury evaluation will help us understand the extent of your injuries and the impact those injuries will have on your future. The value of your claim depends on several factors including whether your injury is temporary or permanent, if the injury leads to lost wages, and if it impacts your ability to earn a living in the future. Other factors include your medical expenses, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Our attorneys may be able to help surviving family members recover compensation for fatal brain injuries under a wrongful death claim. Under New York law, close family members may recover for financial losses they have suffered as a result of losing their loved one. These losses may include loss of the decedent’s financial support, loss of the value of the decedent’s household services, medical bills, funeral expenses, and other damages. In some cases, recovery may be available for the decedent’s pain and suffering as well.
We know that you may be experiencing physical, financial, and emotional trauma after suffering from a brain injury, and we can help.
