Long Island Attorneys Who Understand The Severity Of Brain Injury Cases
How would you adequately describe the loss of a person who has suffered a permanent brain injury? An individual with even a moderate degree of permanent brain damage may suffer from amnesia, short-term memory loss, a personality change, or the inability to concentrate or perform cognitive tasks. A more severe head injury may make it impossible for the victim to perform even simple daily tasks, leave the patient in a coma, or restrict the person to a nursing home bed for life.
Brain Injury: Calculating The Value Of A Claim
Attorneys at our Mineola law firm, the Law Offices of Louis D. Stober, L.L.C., have access to medical, occupational, economic and life care experts. When we are representing a victim of traumatic brain injury (TBI), we call on these experts to testify to the jury and insurance adjustors as to our client’s losses — including loss of earning power, loss of ability to enjoy activities, loss of ability to provide emotional support for our client’s family, and the projected cost of a life time of medical care. It is always our goal to help a client with a brain injury recover maximum compensation and live with dignity.
