Neurological Injuries & Malpractice
Talk to Our Queens Medical Malpractice Attorney About Your Rights
A neurological injury is one that affects the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs, and all the nerves that connect these with the rest of the body. A neurological injury is one of the most devastating consequences of medical malpractice. It may affect every single aspect of a victim’s life, rendering him or her unable to work or participate in activities he or she once enjoyed. It may also affect a victim’s family, as they struggle to provide proper care and support.

Serving Queens, NY in Neurological Injury Cases
If your condition was caused by medical malpractice, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical care, as well as ongoing treatment, lost earnings, emotional suffering, and more. This is meant to help you restore your life to the condition it was prior to your injury, but with neurological injuries, this can be extremely difficult. You may require ongoing therapy, home modifications, in-home care, or round-the-clock assistance, not to mention assistive devices and medicine.
That is why we fight to maximize your compensation, so you can get as much help as possible and can experience peace of mind in knowing that the at-fault party has been brought to justice.
