Hire a Brain Injury Lawyer to Help With Your Claim

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident or a diving accident or have suffered blunt force trauma to your head from an assault, you maybe suffering from a traumatic brain injury. Due to the subtle nature of some brain injuries, they often go undiagnosed and untreated, especially in emergency rooms. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve a patient’s outcome.

Skull fractures and skull penetration are obvious causes of traumatic brain injury, but brain damage can also result from a closed head injury. If physical force injures the brain, blood vessels can break and cause bleeding. The brain can also be damaged if it swells and presses against the bones of the skull or if it is deprived of oxygen.

At Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, our attorneys represent victims of serious injury and wrongful death from traumatic brain injuries and head injuries due to the negligence of others. If you are struggling with a brain injury or lost a loved one due to a serious head injury, contact us today for an immediate free consultation.

Chopra & Nocerino Traumatic Brain Injury Case Results

  • $1.25 Million Settlement for a female pedestrian knocked down in the street who sustained a traumatic brain injury and had to have open reduction internal fixation surgery to the left leg.
  • $1 Million Settlement pedestrian in their 20’s was struck by a passenger vehicle while crossing mid-block in a heavily trafficked Queens intersection. Many other law firms rejected the case, but we felt the victim was entitled to compensation. Our client is still dealing with the effects of the sustained traumatic brain injury, but the settlement helped pay for medical bills and lost wages. 

Long-Term Care After Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious injury to the head, often resulting in severe and/or permanent damage to the brain. Brain injuries caused by truck and motorcycle collisions, large beams dropped from overhead at construction sites, falls from scaffolding or dangerous staircases, and pedestrian accidents frequently require costly long-term care because of the permanency of the impairments.

Traumatic brain injuries often result in some form of disability such as:

  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Loss of voluntary or involuntary motor functions
  • Loss of reasoning and thinking abilities
  • Memory loss
  • Sensory loss such as sight, speech or hearing

If your loved one’s injuries were caused by someone else or by a defective product, we can help your family pursue the maximum compensation available to provide for his or her future care.
