Queens Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
A traumatic brain injury, which is generally caused by a sudden, severe impact to the head, can result in permanent physical and mental trauma. Victims often endure permanent disability, impaired functions and need long-term care and rehabilitation. Compounding these high costs is the fact that a traumatic brain injury victim is unable to return to work and will often face significant financial burdens.
At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, our Queens traumatic brain injury lawyers are committed to helping you and your family obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Since 1971, we have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
The effects of a traumatic brain injury can vary greatly among individuals and largely depends on the location and extent of the damage to the brain. The complications may range from mild to severe and can include some or all of the following symptoms:
- Blurred vision
- Dizziness and lightheadedness
- Changes in behavior and mood
- Headache and fatigue

If you suffer any of these symptoms following an accident, you need to immediately seek medical attention. Our Queens traumatic brain injury lawyers can provide you with names of physicians specializing in traumatic brain injuries in your local area.
