New York Seizures Attorney
A seizure is a fit or temporary symptom of abnormal and excessive neuronal activity in the brain. The outward effect can be as dramatic as chaotic thrashing movement, or as mild as a brief loss of awareness, and manifests itself as an alteration in mental state, or rapid contraction and relaxation of muscles, convulsions, and other mental symptoms. Sometimes it is accompanied by a full body “slump” where the person experiencing the seizure will lose control of their body and crumple to the ground.
At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we protect those whose seizure or seizures were caused by the careless, reckless, or negligent actions of others. Negligence may be defined as failure to use that degree of care that a reasonable person would have used under similar circumstances. The person liable can be a medical professional, the at-fault driver in a motor vehicle accident, or any other person whose actions cause injury. Our firm will not hesitate to bring these parties to trial if that is the correct course to follow and if you approve. We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
In one case, $450,000 was recovered for an injured person due to seizures which she had from a slip and fall accident. Other seizure injuries can be worth well in excess of $1,000,000. Click here to see more verdicts and settlements. Click here to see what our clients say about us.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we will do everything we can to help you get the resources to live a healthy and comfortable existence.
