Who Can I Take Legal Action Against for a New York Brain Injury?

By WRSH on February 29, 2016 - Comments off

Victims of brain injuries endure not only physical challenges as a result of those injuries, but also significant financial burdens in the form of expenses for medical care, nursing, and rehabilitation. It is common for families to go into debt to help pay for a loved one’s treatment and care in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury.

Some of the most common causes of brain injuries in New York City are auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and physical assaults. When a brain injury is caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the at-fault individual or entity can be held liable for the victims’ injuries, damages, and losses. Plaintiffs in such cases must show that the at-fault party’s negligence or wrongdoing caused or contributed to their brain injuries.

Here are a few examples of injury accidents that can result in brain injury:

Auto accidents

Victims of New York car accidents can seek financial compensation from the at-fault driver. Examples of negligence on the part of the driver include impairment, distraction, fatigue, inattention, and speeding.

Slip-and-fall accidents

If you take a fall on someone else’s property and suffer a traumatic brain injury, the property owner and/or property manager can be held liable with a premises liability claim.

Construction accidents

Falls from ladders and falling building materials can cause devastating head injuries. Victims of head injuries at construction sites can pursue support through workers’ compensation benefits. In some cases, it is also possible to pursue compensation by filing a claim against the property owner or against a third party responsible for the accident.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, contact an experienced New York City head injury lawyer who will help you understand your legal rights and options, and secure maximum compensation for your significant losses.
