New York Coma Injury Attorney

New York Coma Injury Cases that involve coma patients are generally caused by negligent or intentional acts, that cause severe head injuries. A coma can be defined as a deep state of unconsciousness from which people cannot be woken, and it can leave patients in vegetative states for lengthy periods of time. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we fight for the rights of coma patients and their family members. 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.

Causes of Comas

Most traumatic brain injuries that result in coma are caused by motor vehicle accidents.

Other causes of comas include:

  • Dangerously low blood sugar in diabetic patients
  • Lack of oxygen
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Brain swelling
  • Infection
  • Stroke
  • Toxic poisoning, such as exposure to carbon monoxide

Coma patients may experience serious complications, the worst of which is a continued vegetative state (defined as a coma lasting longer than four weeks). The longer a patient remains in a vegetative state, the lower their chances of recovery, and the increased likelihood that they will develop bedsores and skeletal or muscular atrophy.

Caring for someone in a coma requires an expensive team of professionals, and many families do not have the means to pay for the level of care their loved one deserves. The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm will do everything we can think of so that you receive just compensation for your family’s loss.

What Are Economic vs. Noneconomic Damages?

Damages recovered in these cases are classified as economic or noneconomic. Economic damages are the actual costs incurred by the coma patient and their family. They include all expenditures for medical expenses, loss of income, and other out-of-pocket costs. Noneconomic damages include physical pain and suffering and emotional pain and suffering for the injured person and spouse.

Our firm has brought many negligence related cases to trial and obtained large settlements for our clients so they could focus on moving their lives forward.

When my daughter was burned in an accident, my husband and I looked for a good lawyer who specialized in burn cases. My husband found Mr. Kenneth A. Wilhelm, and we called him and met with him. He told us he would do whatever he could for our daughter, and he did! We were very pleased with the work Mr. Wilhelm did for our daughter, and we are glad we chose such an excellent lawyer. We would choose his services again if we had to, and I would recommend his services to my family, friends, or anyone who has need of a lawyer. My daughter is doing well because of him.read more
Stanley G.
My son was born prematurely, and I trusted the doctors and hospital to get him through the first few weeks and out of danger. The doctors made some mistakes in their procedures and my son is now injured for life because of their mistakes. I didn't know what to do. I hired Ken Wilhelm's law office because I heard from someone that Ken Wilhelm is the best. He and his attorneys held the hospital responsible for their errors. We received a very large settlement. It doesn't fix my son's suffering but I feel that my attorneys helped me get what my family deserved for our hardship.read more
