To insurance companies and negligent parties, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) case is something to get over with. For you, it is something that may have fundamentally changed your life. Liable parties try to reach the finish line while paying the minimum. You face expensive and perhaps permanent consequences.
Our Manhattan traumatic brain injury lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates protect the rights of TBI victims like you. We understand what this represents to you and work to ensure the other side understands that too.
The Liable Party may have to Pay for Your TBI Treatment and Losses
The human brain is complicated and treating injuries to it is therefore equally complicated. Unfortunately, complicated treatments cost money. Hospital stays for TBIs are 74 percent more costly than stays for other injuries, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
As a result, calculating fair compensation for a victim’s medical care is one of the primary considerations in TBI cases. Any expense related to the diagnosis and treatment of your injury could be eligible for compensation, including:
- Emergency care
- Imaging tests
- Medical equipment
If someone else’s carelessness caused your TBI, focus on recovery while we focus on recovering the full value of your physical, emotional and economic damages. You should not be held accountable for their mistake. We can pursue the liable party for your expenses and losses.
Our Attorneys Consider Your Long-Term Prognosis When Seeking Damages
Your TBI may affect you for the rest of your life. Your compensation should cover future costs, like:
- Ongoing physical, occupational, psychological, or other therapies
- Long-term prescriptions
- Medical equipment
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, our traumatic brain injury lawyers will fully investigate the unique facts and circumstances of your accident and ensure that your claim is filed before the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations (CVP § 214).
If you have been involved in an accident that was the fault of another, contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. Failure to bring your claim by the deadline could result in your being prevented from recovering the compensation you deserve.
Our Attorneys Consider Your Income and Personal Life When Pursuing Compensation
The Mayo Clinic lists the multiple ways TBIs impact individuals on a personal level. Some victims see their motor skills diminished, forcing them to abandon beloved hobbies. Others suffer from depression if their relationship with their spouse or family members changes.
Additionally, you may be facing lost income, as your TBI could disrupt your normal brain function and ability to perform daily tasks.
These losses could be covered by damages like:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
Your ultimate settlement or award amount will depend on your symptoms, the severity of their impact on your life, and other factors.
The team at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates wants to hear all the ways your TBI has changed your life, big or small. You deserve to seek compensation for everything you suffered, even the consequences that are less visible.

Dansker & Aspromonte Associates Can Help with Many Types of TBI Accidents
Our attorneys will investigate your accident to determine its cause and pinpoint the liable party or parties. In Manhattan, traumatic brain injuries can be due to:
- Construction accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall
- Premises liability
Falls are a leading cause of TBIs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), while motor vehicle accidents are another common culprit. In Manhattan, you may suffer a TBI if you were struck by a falling object on a construction site or if you were struck by a speeding vehicle.
However, simply sustaining a TBI in one of these scenarios does not mean you automatically qualify for compensation. Instead, we will work to establish negligence, showing that someone violated a duty of care to you and caused your injuries.
Our Legal Team will Establish Negligence and Identify Liable Parties
Reckless or negligent actions that could be grounds for a TBI case are:
- Drunk driving
- Poor building or property maintenance
- Puddles or leaks
- Defective tires
- Texting while driving
- Faulty machinery
- Loose railings
- Unsecured cords
- Illegal turns
- Dangerous workplaces
This is just a sampling of behaviors that we could pinpoint as the cause of your accident. Our team can obtain police reports, review photos and security footage, and consult experts to piece together what led to your TBI. That can then help us identify who to hold accountable.
Additionally, more than one party may have contributed to your accident, and we can pursue all of them for their part in your case. Liable parties may include:
- Trucking companies
- Rideshare businesses
- Construction companies
- Independent contractors
- Property owners
- Government entities
Each of these liability scenarios may require a different approach. Some may be affected by New York’s road laws, others may intersect with workplace scaffolding regulations, and still more might be governed by product liability law. Leave untangling that to us. We do the research while you focus on healing.
