New York Brain Injury Attorneys
A brain injury is a life-changing and devastating event for those injured, as well as their family and friends. According to the New York Department of Health, nearly 400 cases of traumatic brain injury occur each day in the State of New York. What’s more, there are more than 2,000 deaths, 19,000 hospitalizations, and over 112,000 emergency department visits amount residents in New York each year due to this severe damage.
Traumatic brain injuries often occur in car accidents, trip and falls, construction accidents, and other severe and catastrophic accidents. This injury can be caused by a trauma that results in a bump or blow to the head, or a piercing head injury that interferes with normal brain function. Another type of brain injury, concussions, can result from an impact to the body that causes the head to jolt rapidly back and forth.
Regardless of the cause of the brain injury, experienced New York brain injury attorneys at Frekhtman & Associates can hold the negligent party accountable for your losses.
How Can Traumatic Brain Injuries Impact an Individual’s Life?
Depending on the level of neurological damage, brain injuries are classified as traumatic brain injury, or TBI, or mild traumatic brain injuries known as MBTI. Accident victims suffering from MBTI may retain most of their cognitive skills but encounter significant behavioral or emotional difficulties. Inured victims who sustain TBI could face a lifetime of challenges and medical treatment. Some TBI victims are not able to work or take care of themselves or their families. These victims need financial compensation that will cover their losses over an extended period.
Areas of life affected following a brain injury include:
- Ability to speak and communicate

- short and long term memory
