Experienced Legal Representation For Traumatic Brain And Spinal Injuries

Few injuries are as serious as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a spinal cord injury. These are life-changing injuries, you and your family need to be prepared for the changes you will endure. But you will need help. They can seem tremendously unfair, as often they can result unexpectedly from incidents involving a motor vehicle crash, falls from heights, violence, or sport or recreational activities. They can occur in an instant, but their consequences can last a lifetime.

Our lawyer, at Premo Law Firm PLLC, has worked with other clients in New York who have suffered these terrible injuries. We understand how unsettling they can be. Sufferers may have tremendous injuries or may appear to have emerged unscathed, only to exhibit unusual behavior days or weeks later.

A Traumatic Brain Injury May Have Long-Term Effects

Sometimes a TBI will be diagnosed as a concussion. The individual will be told to rest a few days and are then expected to return to normal. As we have learned with sports-related concussions, sometimes the effects can be longer lasting and vastly more severe. Any blow to the head that causes the brain to strike the skull can cause TBI. If you have suffered such a blow, whether in a motorcycle crash, fall or any other situation, you need to have a complete medical examination by a doctor qualified to diagnose the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury.

Spinal Cord Injury

Violent crashes or other blows to the upper body can also cause spinal cord injuries. While technology is improving, there are limits to what doctors can do to repair damage to the spinal cord. Injuries to the vertebrae and spinal cord often leave individuals paraplegic or quadriplegic. If you have suffered these injuries due to the negligence of another, you will need significant resources to provide for your lifetime health care, motorized wheelchairs, vehicle modifications, as well as structural modifications to your home.

Insurers recognize the long-term expenses in providing this level of care and will often aggressively work to minimize claims. Our attorney has handled complex cases involving these types of injuries and works to obtain the verdicts and settlements that are necessary for these claims.
