Traumatic Brain and Head Injuries May Require 24-Hour Care for a Lifetime

Most of the clients with traumatic brain injuries that we represent at The Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff, P.A. in Morristown, West New York and Newton, New Jersey, have closed head injuries. While physical scarring is not apparent with closed head injuries, the damage is no less severe. We aggressively represent our clients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. We also exercise a high level of sensitivity and compassion for our clients and their family members who are suffering. Their lives have been changed and will likely never be the same. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help recover compensation for a client's damages and hold the careless or negligent party responsible.

Your Legal Advocate

Attorney Michael P. Burakoff will leave no stone unturned in establishing your case. He knows the top medical specialists in this area and refers his clients there for thorough testing. He will review medical reports and bring in medical experts to assist with the case. He will interview family members, close friends, and others who see the victim on a day-to-day basis to document the changes they have seen in the individual.

On many occasions, the individual who suffered a traumatic brain injury is unable to perform the basic functions of their job and may not be able to return to any type of occupation. The other side may accuse them of laziness, but we will have the facts to back up the extent of their injuries. Past and future lost wages must be accounted for when determining just compensation in settlement or litigation.
