Closed Head Injury Attorneys in Albany
New York Concussion Injury Lawyers
Albany Lawyers Providing Legal Assistance Following Head Injuries Since 1950
The term "closed head injury" refers to brain injuries that result from accidents in which the head is struck but not penetrated. Closed head injuries can cause damage ranging from a mild concussion to coma and/or death.
Though closed head injuries may seem less severe since the skull was not penetrated or fractured, they can be highly damaging due to brain swelling and inflammation. Swelling and inflammation in closed head injuries can actually be worse than a penetrating injury because blood and swollen tissue cannot expand beyond the undamaged skull. Catastrophic neural damage can result.
If you or a loved one has experienced a closed head injury in New York state, contact the law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP. We work with neurologists, neuro-psychologists and other high-level medical experts to:
- Identify the scope of closed head injuries
- Devise methods to conclusively demonstrate the extent of damage
- Work to obtain clients' maximum settlement and jury verdict awards to fund brain injury rehabilitation and to compensate victims and families for their full personal and financial loss.
