How Do You Prove a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) In New York?

While a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not have all the characteristics of severe injuries like broken bones and puncture wounds, it is one of the most common debilitating injuries someone may suffer in a personal injury accident. Not only do they produce severe symptoms and often require extensive medical treatment, but they also need significant evidence to prove.

If you are pursuing a traumatic brain injury claim in New York, understanding how to prove the injury resulted from another person’s negligence is essential. Our experienced lawyers at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP have years of experience navigating and guiding clients through challenging legal processes. With our resources, knowledge, and community connections, you can count on our attorneys to gather the necessary evidence and documentation for your claim.

How to Prove a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in New York

Traumatic brain injuries often have severe symptoms easily identifiable through medical records and documentation. While showing the effects of a TBI is not difficult, proving the injury was the result of the defendant’s negligent actions may pose a challenge for those not experienced or informed in New York legislation.

While the specific evidence and documentation necessary to prove your claim is unique to each case, the following are a few examples of common corroborating information:

Medical Records

In a New York traumatic brain injury lawsuit, verified evidence backed by medical professionals is crucial. Your physician will conduct relevant tests and scans to assess the injury’s severity as well as determine the necessary treatment for recovery. Maintaining medical records from the incident to the lawsuit can illustrate the injury’s progression and severity. As TBIs can lead to lasting damage, medical documentation not only guides appropriate care but also aids in demonstrating the connection between the injury and the defendant’s actions.

Expert and Eyewitness Testimonies

Compiling statements from eyewitnesses and professionals can support your case when proving a traumatic brain injury. From expert physicians to biomedical engineers, having someone with schooling and experience testify on your behalf provides vital evidence for your claim. Specialists in traumatic brain injuries can affirm potential declines in your quality of life and the injury’s seriousness. Moreover, they can propose plausible explanations for the injuries sustained, bolstering your attorney’s arguments. Eyewitnesses may also prove extremely valuable when proving the other party’s fault.  

Other Forms of Evidence

Security cameras, pictures of the accident scene, and various types of evidence may increase your chances of a positive outcome for your case. Our Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP lawyers have years of experience gathering information and evidence to support our clients’ claims. We understand what it takes to secure a positive outcome for our clients and will utilize our tools and resources.
