Understanding Brain Injury And Your Options

Understanding Your Brain Injury Law CaseBrain injury is one of the most dreaded types of injuries out there, and with good reason. It can impact emotions, physical function, mental capabilities, and so much more. It's also caused by a wide range of accidents, and nobody is fully safe from brain injury. A closer look highlights just how dangerous and common this issue is.

  • 51,000 people each year in the United States die from brain injury
  • About 1.5 million in the country suffer from some form of brain injury each year. These injuries range from mild to very severe and include those who die as a result of their injuries.
  • Over 1 million people get emergency room treatment for their brain injury
  • 230,000 are hospitalized for some time because of brain injury
  • 80,000 to 90,000 people in the country suffer long term disability as a result of their brain injury
  • Over $56 billion is spent on brain injuries each year. This includes the direct costs such as medical treatment as well as indirect costs like lost wages or reduced ability to function.
  • Symptoms of a serious brain injury include coma, seizures, paralysis, personality change, vision or hearing loss, loss of taste or smell, learning deficits, and more.


Obviously, it's a more serious issue than many people realize. And it can be caused by a wide range of accidents. Common causes for brain injury include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Work related injuries
  • Assault
  • Recreational accidents like hiking, biking, or sporting injuries
  • And more


When you or a loved one suffers from any kind of brain injury, it can be incredibly difficult to continue your life the way you're used to doing. In some instances it will cause an injured person to be unable to work properly and could even lead to a need for continued, round the clock medical care. This, combined with the immediate medical care provided, will usually lead to very high medical bills and serious costs that can be hard to manage.

Luckily, there are options out there that could help. If you have suffered from a brain injury that was caused by another party, or if a loved one has been, you may be able to seek financial compensation for your injuries.

This is possible if negligence, recklessness, or carelessness led to your brain injury. You'll need to be able to prove that this is the case and that you aren't responsible for the injury. It can be difficult determining whether or not you have a legal case, but the fact is that with the help of a skilled brain injury lawyer you will likely have little trouble finding out more about your options. They will be able to help you determine whether or not you have a case, what you can expect to happen, and more.

It's true that in some accidents, an insurance company may try to settle out of court to help you get the kind of compensation you are owed. With a good brain injury lawyer on your side, the risk of settling for less than you deserve isn't as great.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
