A brain injury can be the result of a few different actions including car accidents, falls, medical negligence, and physical assault. The effect of a brain injury on the victim’s life will depend on the severity of the injury. A brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe. Some of the effects of a brain injury include:
While some patients may recover from their brain injury, others may require life-long medical care. Their injury may also limit their ability to work and contribute to family life.
Given how debilitating a brain injury can be, a victim’s damages can be very extensive. In assessing your case, the following factors may impact the value of your compensation:
Depending on the incident that caused your brain injury, the defendant may try to reduce their liability by blaming you for the accident. This is not an unusual tactic in auto accidents involving pedestrians, bicycle riders, and motorcyclists. Because New York follows the pure comparative negligence rule, being partly at fault for your brain injury does not stop you from making a claim for damages. Under the pure comparative negligence rule, you can still recover damages even if you were 90% at fault for the incident that caused your injury. Your recoverable compensation will be reduced by the percent of fault attributed to you.
There is no way to predict the exact amount of compensation you will receive. However, Gold & Gold has a track record of seven-figure settlements for brain injury victims. We aim to recover the maximum compensation that you are entitled to and we deploy our resources to ensure that we get the best outcome possible for our clients.
