New York City Attorneys Representing Victims Suffering From Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury, commonly referred to as TBI, significantly impacts all aspects of the lives of those who have experienced brain trauma. Most serious TBI cases result in the permanent disability of the victim and require years of rehabilitation.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 1.4 million Americans suffer brain injuries each year. Approximately 5.3 million people in the United States require some type of long-term care as a result of a traumatic brain injury.
The NYC traumatic brain injury attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. stand up for the rights of victims who have suffered a brain injury as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of other parties. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our injured clients. We do whatever it takes to seek financial compensation from those who caused your serious brain injury.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from any type of impact, such as a bump, blow, or jolt, or a penetrating injury with an external force that disrupts the normal function of the brain. A brain injury can dramatically impact a victim’s life and result in short- or long-term -impairment or even wrongful death.
The severity of a traumatic brain injury can range. A “mild” TBI involves a brief change in mental status or consciousness, while a “severe” TBI involves an extended period of unconsciousness or memory loss after the injury. The majority of TBIs that occur each year are mild and commonly referred to as concussions. Nevertheless, even these “milder” brain injuries can still wreak havoc on the lives of the victims and their loved ones.
There are many different factors that can lead to a traumatic brain injury. According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2010, slips, trips and falls were the leading cause of TBI, accounting for 40 percent of all cases that resulted in an emergency room visitation, hospitalization, or death. Falls disproportionately affect the younger (children less than 15 years old) and older (adults aged 65 and older) groups.
The second leading cause of TBI was unintentional blunt trauma, such as being hit by an object, accounting for approximately 15 percent of all TBIs. The third leading cause of traumatic brain injuries amongst all age groups was motor vehicle accidents.
Regardless of what caused your or your loved one’s TBI, you need to take immediate action to protect your legal rights. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we will investigate the factors that led to the accident that caused your traumatic brain injury. We will listen to you and tell you how we can help.

I would highly recommend the law firm of Gersowitz, Libo and Korek if you are looking for legal help and representation that is thorough, honest and personal. My family and I were faced with a horrible situation and both Jeff Korek and Ed Gersowitz were there from the beginning, keeping us well informed throughout the process and were always available at a moment's notice whenever we needed them. Their support staff was just as attentive and conscientious. They definitely made an awful situation easier to handle, and I am very grateful to all of them for that!
Working with Mr. Fruhling and associates has been an amazing experience, mainly because of the transparency in regards to every aspect. He was very patient with me. When I didn’t understand certain things him & his team explained step by step without any problems. Michael and his team constantly gave it their all to make sure they were always on top of everything. Cannot thank him and the rest of the office enough for all they have accomplished for me. Thank you!

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
