Brain Injury Lawsuits New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia
At the Locks Law Firm, our experienced personal injury lawyers are committed to protecting the rights of individuals and families of individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injuries as the result of another party's negligent or reckless conduct. Assisting victims throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York, our brain injury attorneys promote the development of a safer society by seeking jury verdicts that discourage misconduct and make manufacturing defective products unprofitable. When a traumatic brain injury is the fault of another person or organization, the victim may file a personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits are intended to attain justice by awarding monetary compensation to injured parties, thereby discouraging the continuation or repetition of the behavior that caused their injuries.
In order to successfully litigate a traumatic brain injury claim, our personal injury lawyers will conduct an extensive investigation to find the evidence necessary to demonstrate that the defendant bears legal responsibility, or liability, for the injury. For a complimentary case consultation, contact the Locks Law Firm — convenient to the metropolitan New York City, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Camden, New Jersey areas — and speak with a traumatic brain injury attorney about your claim.
What are Your Rights?
Each case is unique and must be valued individually. Factors that affect the value of a traumatic brain injury case include the nature and extent of the injuries, the length of treatment and recovery time, the physical or mental impairment involved, whether there is comparative fault, and whether punitive damages are appropriate.
Traumatic brain injury victims may be eligible to obtain financial compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and any loss of wages that result from being absent from work. If you or a loved one has been permanently disabled, we can help you obtain compensation for your diminished earning capacity and for your future medical costs. Victims are also entitled to compensation for pain and suffering – both physical and mental.
Additionally, victims may be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded when the defendant is found to have acted willfully, intentionally, maliciously or in reckless disregard of the welfare of others. Intended to punish the defendant and to discourage the type of conduct the defendant engaged in, the actual size of a punitive damage award is difficult to predict, and the process of determining it is sometimes arbitrary, depending on the sound judgment of the jury.
Our personal injury lawyers have obtained many substantial verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients nationwide. To schedule a review of your claim, contact one of the Locks Law Firm's three offices – New York City, New York; Cherry Hill, New Jersey; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A traumatic brain injury attorney can help you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
