Common Symptoms of Brain Injuries
Brain damage covers a wide area of injuries, and many of them have catastrophic effects on your ability to perform your usual daily activities.
Some common symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) include:
- Head pain or chronic headache
- Loss of consciousness or coma
- Bleeding in the brain
- Cognitive problems including memory loss or decreased ability perform routine activities
- Acting differently than usual
- Anxiousness or sadness
- Blurry vision
- Consistently being nauseated or vomiting often
- Problems thinking clearly or concentrating
- Loss of sense of taste or smell
- Slurred speech
After an accident, symptoms could come on suddenly or take days or weeks to appear. It is important that you seek medical attention both immediately after your injury occurred and throughout your recovery so that you can be properly diagnosed by a medical professional.
Common Symptom of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injury symptoms include:
- Spinal fractures
- Radiating pain or numbness down the spine or into the extremities
- Difficulty walking or breathing
- Head or spine lumps that appear
- Head pain, back pain, neck pain
- Loss of sensory and motor function below the injury level
- One arm or leg may have more functioning control than the other limb
- One side may have more function than the other side
- Retention of waste fluids or incontinence
- Tight pressure in the area between the neck and stomach
- Tingling in the extremities of the body: toes, fingers, hands or feet
A medical diagnosis will confirm whether you have a spinal cord injury, and if so, its severity. A medical report is vital to proving your case against the liable party.
It is Your Right to Seek Legal Assistance
Victims of brain damage or spinal cord injuries have a legal right to hire a lawyer to represent them if they feel that someone else’s fault caused their injuries. Since 1988, our lawyers have fought for victims to ensure that they recover the fair and just money compensation for which they are entitled.
If we agree to accept your case, we will not require any up-front legal fees from you. We accept all of our cases on what is called a “contingency” fee. That means we will only receive a legal fee if you receive monetary compensation. If we do not obtain compensation for you, we do not accept a fee for our services. There is no risk to you for hiring us.

The Time to File Your Claim Can Expire
Under New York Law, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim after your accident. Cases against some parties such as The City of New York or other City, State or Federal agencies have an especially limited timeframe. You should contact us immediately after your accident so that we can conduct a thorough investigation as soon as possible and identify those parties who were at fault before any deadlines expire.
