Brain Injury TBI Lawyers New York
Brain injuries associated with car accidents are called traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Brain injury severity depends on the extent of trauma and the quality of medical care that the brain injury victim receives. In some cases, car-accident-associated brain injury is compounded by medical malpractice.
Approximately half of all traumatic brain injury cases are a result of auto accidents. The severity of these types of brain injury can depend on a number of factors such as length of unconsciousness, amnesia, altered mental states, and the neurological deficits sustained.
Today, brain injury victims have a greater opportunity for rehabilitation thanks to the great strides made in medical techniques, especially in terms of emergency response treatment. The key, however, is medical attention to be given quickly. If there are delays, the victim can be exposed to a number of serious injuries and conditions. Any such delay by a medical professional can be classified as medical malpractice.
