If you are suffering from a brain injury due to one of these accidents, contact our firm to discuss how we can help you.
Although the skull is dense, it is still subject to an injury. The skull is made up of twenty-two bones, each of which, are subject to a break or fracture. A skull fracture may occur when the head is subjected to a significant impact, as seen in a truck accident or from a fall. When the brain experiences the significant force, the blood vessel and tissue in the head can be suffer brain damage. Although a head injury does not necessarily mean neurological injury or damage, there is a higher probability of injury with these types of accidents.
Our Long Island Brain Injury group at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC has found that many accidents are caused by the negligence of another individual or party. If someone else has caused an accident leading to a brain injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them. We can help you determine who is liable for your injury and help you file a lawsuit to hold them accountable for your physical injury and financial damage.
An individual suffering from a brain injury – whether minor or severe – may show a wide variety of different symptoms. More common symptoms of this type of injury include nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, dizziness, headache and pupil dilation. If a brain injury is suspected, the treating physician will likely order a CT scan or a MRI. If you were treated at a hospital and the physician did not order these tests, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim regarding the physician’s negligence. Contact our experienced Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyers to learn about your options.
If the tests do not reveal a brain injury, the doctor may recommend that the injury victim remain at the hospital for additional monitoring. In some cases, a brain injury is immediately apparent but brain injury symptoms will develop later. Our Long Island Brain Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC states that many problems do not develop until after twelve to twenty-four hours after the brain injury or accident.
Although the majority of brain injuries are not serious, the costs of treatment can still be significant. Just a few hours in the Emergency Room can cost an accident victim several thousand dollars. If a traumatic brain injury is severe, the patient will face mounting medical bills, in addition to lost work time and the possibility of permanent physical impairment and disability. The New York Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC will successfully handle your case in order to obtain an appropriate award of monies for your physical injury and resulting financial hardship.
