Having a Lawyer on Your Side Greatly Reduces Your Stress
Having a personal injury law firm managing your legal case should greatly reduce your stress and the stress your loved ones face. Victims and their families will be able to fully focus on medical care, rehabilitation, and recovery when they do not need to deal with insurance carriers, claims, filing deadlines and other details of the legal process.
Whether you were hurt in a car accident, truck accident, construction accident, or another type of incident, there is likely a lot of stress and uncertainty while you are recovering from your brain injury. Getting the money you need to pay your bills should not create more.
A Brain Injury Lawyer Understands Your Challenges
Your brain injury attorney will understand all the legal challenges your case presents. Our attorneys have a long track record of representing clients with brain injuries from traumatic accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, and other negligence. We know how long and arduous this recovery often is and that the road is often unpredictable and expensive. We are here when you need us most.
Your Attorney Will Ensure You’re Aware of All Applicable Filing Deadlines
You should not have to worry about trying to remember all the timelines necessary to build your case and file paperwork based on your injury. While New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 applies in most cases and creates a deadline to sue that may apply to your case, another, even shorter deadline may apply to your case and there are additional deadlines to meet other than the statute of limitations.
As long as your brain injury attorney knows about your case promptly after your injury, they will help you meet all applicable deadlines.

Your Brain Injury Attorney Will Help You Seek Appropriate Compensation
As a part of managing your brain injury accident case, your lawyer will identify and document your recoverable damages based on the expenses and losses you suffered. They will also determine a value for your case and use this value to negotiate for an appropriate settlement.
Some types of recoverable damages in these cases include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills, current and future
- Lost income from missed work
- Diminished earning ability for lasting impairments
- Property damage, if relevant to your case
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
A Brain Injury Lawyer Will Build a Compelling Case for You
Your brain injury attorney will gather evidence and build a compelling case against the party or parties who caused your injuries. This requires a full investigation into what happened and how the other party’s negligence led to your physical, emotional, and financial harm.
Our lawyers know where to look for evidence and the type of evidence generally available to support your case based on how your injuries occurred. We will interview witnesses, obtain key documents, and take other steps to build a convincing case against the liable party.
The Law Firm Will Manage All Communication About Your Case
Your brain injury lawyer will manage all communication about your case, both with you and others. You do not need to worry about talking to insurance companies, dealing with the courts, or making other calls. Instead, you will focus on your health while your attorney takes care of it all. You should call, text, or email with questions when they arise, but your lawyer will:
- Keep you updated on your case
- Identify liable parties
- Communicate with all parties for you
- Gather evidence
- Determine a value for your case
A Brain Injury Attorney Identifies the Liable Parties
A vital step in building a case and recovering appropriate compensation based on a brain injury is identifying the liable parties. Our personal injury attorneys understand how negligence and liability work under New York law. We investigate what occurred and identify all potentially liable parties, allowing us to hold them accountable. This is how we get justice for our clients.
Your Lawyer Will Have a Network of Expert Witnesses to Support Your Case
Our legal team has a network of experts we work with to support our clients’ cases. We often call on experts to show how negligence occurred, to document liability, or to support our claim for damages. For example, experts frequently play a vital role in estimating the costs of future or ongoing care for traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The list of experts who might contribute to a brain injury case includes medical experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists, life care planners, and economists. Our lawyers will identify, meet with, and work with all experts necessary to build your case for damages.
