What is a brain injury lawyer? A brain injury lawyer is a lawyer that represents people that have suffered a brain injury as a result of some sort of accident whether it is a slip and fall, trip and fall, car, motorcycle, construction or any other type of accident.
Brain injuries may also occur because of medical malpractice. The brain injury lawyers of Fishbeyn & Briskin are experienced in representing people that have suffered trauma related brain injuries.
We are available for you 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. When you call our firm for a free consultation regarding a brain injury, unlike many other firms, you will speak directly with one of the partners.
While a concussion is deemed a brain injury as well, the question that we explore as brain injury lawyers is whether or not the there a permanent residual effects of the injury sustained by our client. The more severe the residual permanency of the injury clearly the greater are the damages that are suffered by the client. In turn the value of the case grows depending upon the severity of the residual effects of the brain injury.
Brain injuries may be either closed head injuries or penetrating head injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are a leading cause of death and disability. Brain trauma causes secondary injury during the minutes and days immediately after the initial injury. Traumatic brain injury may cause a variety of cognitive, emotional, social, behavioral and physical effects, and outcome can range from complete recovery to permanent disability or even death.
Often times it is a family member of the accident victim that contacts us for a consultation. All of our consultations are free, and our representation of the injured is only compensated when we recover money for that person. Depending on the nature of the injury we will be more than happy to conduct our first meeting at a location that is convenient for you. We can travel to your home or even the hospital.
Remember that when you call Fishbeyn & Briskin brain injury lawyers it is a lawyer that you will meet with and speak to.
