Highly Qualified and Experienced Brain Injury Attorneys
The American Academy of Brain Injury Attorneys is a select group of experienced brain injury attorneys from across the United States. Membership is by invitation only and is limited to the top 100 attorneys who concentrate their legal practice on representing individuals and families following a traumatic brain injury.
Each day, thousands of individuals will sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), often as a result of the negligence of others. Yet, unfortunately, many of these persons will not have adequate legal representation to protect their rights and obtain the compensation they so justly deserve.
Victims of brain damage injuries caused by the negligence of others in vehicle accidents including car, bus, or truck crashes, and those with a traumatic brain injury as a result of falls, construction site accidents, train wrecks, and landlord carelessness, are entitled to experienced attorneys who understand traumatic brain injuries. Members of the Academy also represent victims of New York medical malpractice including the failure to diagnose strokes and other neurological disorders.
Recovery from a traumatic brain injury is a long journey, both physically and emotionally. It is one that involves hope, fear, courage, and the support of many. You need an attorney on your side who understands brain injury and its long term impact. You need a lawyer that can work with you and your family to see that you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
The Academy of Brain Injury Attorneys promotes the highest standards of representation, integrity, and honor. We believe that it is our ethical responsibility to vigorously advocate for the rights of brain damage injury survivors; promote brain injury awareness and education; and support brain injury prevention initiatives.
Membership in the American Academy of Brain Injury Attorneys is by invitation only. Only the most highly qualified brain injury lawyers in America are invited to join this prestigious group.
Members are chosen based upon their experience, knowledge and commitment to the representation of victims of brain damage injuries. They all are active members in their state brain injury associations and in national and state trial lawyer groups.
Our Mission: Representing Victims of Brain Damage Injuries with Competence and Integrity
Our mission is to provide exemplary legal representation to victims of traumatic brain injury and their family members. Our skilled and experienced attorneys will aggressively pursue the rights of brain injury victims ethically and with compassion.
We believe that we must strive to be the best trial lawyers we can be. We believe we must give back to the legal profession and provide education to other lawyers on legal techniques necessary for representation of those with brain damage injuries. We believe we must make a difference in our community and actively support our state brain injury associations. We believe that the best cure for a brain injury is prevention and support programs and activities that reduce the risk of traumatic brain damage.
We believe that the legal representation of brain trauma victims must be accomplished with compassion and respect.
