Manhattan Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain Injury Lawyer Manhattan, NY

A Manhattan, NY brain injury lawyer from Blitz Law Group, LLP has represented victims of injury accidents for many years, and understands what it takes to get fair compensation for our clients. And when this injury was caused by another’s fault, then there may be grounds for filing a lawsuit. The human brain is the consistency of gelatin, and because of its delicate material, it relies on the skull as its form of protection from the outside world. Despite the protection the skull offers, the brain can still get seriously injured from internal or external factors. 

Concussion

One of the most commonly sustained traumatic brain injuries is the concussion. This happens when the brain changes in function due to hitting the inside walls of the skull. Symptoms of concussions include nausea, vomiting, headaches, moments of unconsciousness, insomnia, sleeping too much, blurry vision, confusion, memory lapses, sluggishness, being bothered by noise or light, and balance problems.

Edema

Edema is brain swelling that can happen from any type of traumatic brain injury. The skull is not able to accommodate brain swelling, which can put dangerous pressure on the brain. Injury, health problems, tumors, infections, and high altitudes can cause brain swelling to occur. As a Manhattan brain injury lawyer would suggest, immediate medical attention must be sought for any brain injury, as it can become a life-threatening condition that puts the life of that person at risk. 

Hematoma

A collection of blood within the skull is referred to as an intracranial hematoma, which is prevalently caused by a blood vessel that has burst in the brain. The blood may build up within the brain tissue or underneath the skull, putting further pressure on the brain. Hematomas can be caused by trauma, like being involved in a car crash or slip and fall accident.

Skull Fracture

A head injury where the skull bone breaks is called a skull fracture. Mild breaks may not cause long-term issues and can heal overtime, while severe fractures can result in complications related to brain damage, bleeding, infection, seizures, and leaking of cerebrospinal fluid. Symptoms of a skull fracture include headaches, confusion, dent or lump on head, swelling or bruising, loss of consciousness, vomiting or nausea, and clear fluid or blood coming out from ears or nose.

Traumatic brain injuries can be the result of external force being suddenly and forcefully applied to the head that affects the ability of the brain to function. Traumatic brain injuries are often linked to car accidents, slip and falls, sports accidents, and physical assaults. There are more than a million cases of traumatic brain injuries that occur every year. If you or a relative is one of these people and someone else is responsible for what happened, then we urge you to contact a Manhattan brain injury lawyer for assistance.
