New York City Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

New York City Attorneys Representing Victims Suffering From Brain Injuries

traumatic brain injuryTraumatic 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.

What Is a Traumatic 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.

Leading Causes of a Traumatic Brain Injury

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. If you have an actionable case, we will file a lawsuit against the responsible parties.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
