For a more complete list of our successes, please visit http://axelrodpc.com/results. We also have a focus on brain injuries, including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). In fact, in 2016 we obtained a jury verdict for over $2.5 million for a client who suffered a concussion when a part of the door at his apartment building fell on his head, permanently causing him headaches and various other problems.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), TBI plays a role in almost a third of all injury deaths in the United States, and is a common cause of both death and disability in the country. These injuries also have serious economic consequences: in 2000, TBIs in the United States alone caused an estimated $9.2 billion in lifetime medical costs, and an additional $51.2 billion in losses to productivity. Brain injuries, and the brain in general, are still poorly-understood, even by medical professionals and researchers. However, the long-term harm of even the most minor concussion is finally being appreciated by the general public. Consequently, long-term complications from head injuries that used to be dismissed as “all in your head” are now being taken seriously by courts and juries. Our experienced team of attorneys makes it a point to stay informed on the latest developments in medical research on brain injuries. If you or a loved one have suffered a TBI and had symptoms last for multiple months or longer, we may be able to help you get compensation.
