Our lawyers are adept at investigating brain injury cases in New York City. Some injuries occur at construction sites where proper safety considerations could have prevented the injury. Brain injuries can also occur as a result of sports injuries, falls or motor vehicle accidents.
The brain is complex and awe-inspiring, but it is also fragile. The brain has the consistency of firm pudding and floats in a small lining of fluid in the skull. There are several types of brain injury, including traumatic brain injury, which occurs when an external force causes an insult to the brain. For instance, a direct blow to the head can be great enough to injure the brain inside the skull or even break the skull and directly hurt the brain.
When the brain is injured because it has been deprived of oxygen or blood it is called an acquired brain injury. Another form of a traumatic brain injury occurs when there is a rapid acceleration and subsequent deceleration of the head, which causes the brain to move back and forth inside the skull.
