NY Head Injury
A large number of Americans live with disabilities caused by a head or brain injury. Studies show that more than 5 million people in the United States have a head injury, and nearly 270,000 more will sustain a head or brain injury each year. A head injury could cause death or devastating damage to a person’s daily life and can result from a crash such as an auto accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, bike accident, accidents at work and slip and fall accidents. If you have been a victim of a head injury due to someone else’s negligence, you should contact our NY Personal Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis and Associates.
A head injury may lead to significant physical problems, some being permanent, and could also cause a dramatic financial burden due to lengthy and higher medical costs, as well as loss of income. Our experienced NY Head Injury Lawyer group can provide legal advice regarding how to proceed with a legal claim against the negligent party who caused the accident and resulting head injury.
Traumatic head injury stems from an abrupt impact to the head, such as an object hitting a person or a persona’s head hitting the dashboard during a car accident. Serious impairment can be a direct result because of such an accident. A contusion, which is brain swelling and tissue bruising from a violent head injury, may cause brain injury. Some of the signs of a brain injury which require immediate medical attention include:
- Dizziness or balance problems
- Headaches or nausea
- Vision problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Changes in mood and personality
- Sleep problems
Treatment for a head and brain injury can be lifelong and very expensive. Head and brain injuries can threaten a victim’s quality of life due to the severity of the injury and the high cost of proper medical treatment, along with loss of wages. The experienced NY Head Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis and Associates can help you file a legal claim in order to hold the party responsible for your damages.
