Whether you call it a closed head injury, brain damage, or a concussion, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have a dramatic and devastating impact on survivors and their families. People who suffer brain trauma face a long road ahead. They may need months or even years of rehabilitation to perform the most basic tasks. Often, the aftermath of this “invisible injury” is permanent, leaving the victim disabled for life.
The New York law firm of De Caro & Kaplen, LLP focuses its national legal practice on representing brain injury survivors and their family members. Brain injury law is not just our profession; it’s our longstanding passion. Our success in helping people afflicted with head injuries is one reason our partners, Shana De Caro and Michael Kaplen, were selected as Preferred Attorneys by the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA). They are the brain injury lawyers for BIAA in the case against the National Football League, and authored the brief filed by BIAA to explain the science of brain injury and why the retired players are not receiving a fair deal before the United States of America Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States.
While it’s true that money can’t undo the brain injury you sustained from a car accident, medical malpractice, or other cause, it can help lift the financial burden of medical bills, lost wages, and other costs from your shoulders. A full and fair settlement will provide funds to use for long-term rehabilitation and medical care, replace loss of income, provide for your family, and get the assistance you need to live productively in your community.
Obtaining a reasonable settlement for your injury is no easy feat, however. It calls for the help of an experienced lawyer, one who understands the complex medical and legal implications of brain damage. You’ll find that lawyer at De Caro & Kaplen, LLP. Attorneys Shana De Caro and Michael Kaplen have been handling head injury and brain injury cases for over 40 years.
It's why we're known as The Brain Injury Law Firm®.
