      There is nothing worse than having a doctor tell you, or a loved one, that because of a brain injury, it will be impossible to take a long walk on a beautiful morning. Or be able to hug your child as deeply as you once did. Or….even do something as simple as tie your shoes quickly and efficiently.

I contacted Mike Ranzenhofer and he got started the process of getting money for me for my pain and suffering and future medical bills. Every time I called or came to his office he always took his time to help me. And we eventually won the case. He is an amazing lawyer and person himself and I would fully recommend him to anyone.

        Steps to take after an injury

        First, it’s very important to make sure you’ve documented exactly what happened with your accident or injury. The date, the time, the names and addresses of those involved, as well as details of what happened are critical components that you’ll need as you try to work through the problems you’re having. If you’ve been in a car accident, we already have a checklist you can use. You can see the checklist at our Car Accident Checklist page.

        Secondly, you really should contact an Injury Attorney in Buffalo as soon as possible….because the other party’s Insurance Company is probably already working behind the scenes…and preparing to defend its client.

        Contacting an accident attorney is really very simple – and for your case, it’s a Free Consultation. I’ll provide the accident and injury help you need by spending time reviewing the facts with you to be able to tell you what possible remedies you have and make suggestions on how to proceed.

        What most people take for granted is gone in an instant – the result of an accident – whether from a car crash, a fall or even a simple mistake made on a construction site. Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is physical brain damage resulting from a sudden impact.

        The majority of traumatic brain injuries are caused by car accidents – but falling, violence, sport injuries, and child abuse are also leading contributors to TBI.

        Experienced Buffalo Brain Injury Lawyers

        Two million people suffer from a traumatic brain injury each year. Of that number, 70,000 to 90,000 are left with significant and irreversible impairments….and 20,000 people die from their brain injuries.

        And traumatic brain injury is the number one cause of disability in children and young adults.

        The physical, cognitive, and emotional changes caused by a traumatic brain injury depends on the location and level of the injury.

        Different forms of brain damage that can occur:

        Focal Brain Damage

        Focal brain damage is restricted to the specific area of the brain affected by the impact.

        Diffuse Brain Damage

        Diffuse brain damage is the result of the brain moving back and forth inside the skull. This can cause damage to many areas of the brain.

        Major Speech and Language Areas

        The major speech and language areas of the brain are the most common areas affected because they sit in pockets that allow only minimal movement. Exceed that movement in a traumatic event, and speech and language are permanently affected.

        These types of traumatic brain injury can also leave a victim with sensory disturbances, cognitive impairments, and motor system damage.

        If one survives a traumatic brain injury, they may have difficulty processing new information, concentrating, organizing thoughts, making decisions, solving problems, and many other simple processes we do each day.

        Immediate medical care is crucial in those first few hours following the traumatic brain injury – with long term care a distinct possibility.

        TBI treatments vary according to the individual’s specific impairments. Long-term injury care often involves a team of professionals who specialize in the all aspects of rehabilitation.

        The results of a traumatic brain injury can be very difficult for the patient and his or her loved ones, both financially and emotionally.

        Through considerable education and experience, the Buffalo Brain Injury Lawyers at Friedman & Ranzenhofer, PC, are able to evaluate traumatic brain injuries and successfully address claims on behalf of the injured.

        Most traumatic brain injury accidents are preventable and occur because of the other party’s recklessness or irresponsible negligence.

        It is always important to talk with an experienced attorney about brain injury cases. We’ve spoken many times with brain injury victims or their families….and they had no idea what legal rights they had.
