Some brain injuries are easily seen, such as those that result from skull fractures and profuse bleeding. Medical personnel can clearly see that an injury has occurred and begin to provide treatment. Closed head and latent brain injuries, on the other hand, are more subtle. Given a lack of external symptoms, these injuries can go undiagnosed, and can result in even more significant brain damage.
At the New York City law firm of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., our team of experienced attorneys has a proven record of results in cases involving traumatic brain injuries. We can discuss your options for seeking the compensation that you and your family deserve after an accident. We frequently consult with experts, such as life-care planners and rehabilitation specialists, to create a solid plan for care and recovery.
Representation for Individuals Affected by Closed Head and Latent Brain Injuries
When the head is struck with a certain amount of force, the brain can move within the skull. This movement can result in tears in brain tissue and the rupturing of blood vessels, causing bleeding in the brain. There may also be bruising and swelling, which can cause neural damage. Symptoms of closed head injuries may include headaches, weakness, vomiting and fatigue. In some cases, these symptoms do not appear until days or weeks after the initial trauma.
Our firm has seen the consequences that closed head and latent brain injuries can have, including their financial impact on loss of income, job retraining and future medical care. Our lawyers work to ensure responsible parties are held accountable and that full compensation is recovered for all necessary treatment and expenses.
