New York man suffering from brain injury after head-on crash

No parent ever wants to receive a phone call about his or her child being in an automobile accident. It would be natural to be concerned about possible injuries and their likely prognoses. There would also be a tendency to think ahead to the time when the injured person would fully be able to get back to normal activities. Unfortunately, not all victims of car accidents completely recover on a given timetable. An upstate New York family is grappling with the effects of their son's brain injury following a head-on collision.

A 23-year-old man was on his way to work at a grocery store when he was struck head-on by another driver. According to reports, the crash occurred when a vehicle operated by an 86-year-old driver crossed a median. Records show that the elderly man had been involved in numerous accidents over the past several years. The young man's family was understandably upset that the older man was still allowed to drive. In an interview, they questioned why the man's family or insurance company had not intervened after his previous accidents.

While at the hospital, surgeons removed the young man's spleen and put a bolt in his head to relieve the pressure on his brain. According to physicians, the severity of his brain injury was significant. At this time, the young man remains in a coma with severe trauma to his brain. While hopeful, his parents acknowledge that their son's future is uncertain.  

A brain injury can be catastrophic, leaving victims unable to care for themselves, communicate or perform routine functions. When someone's negligent behavior caused the accident that led to an injury, families may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit. A New York personal injury attorney can assist families with the litigation process. Providing round-the-clock care for a brain injury patient would be extremely expensive. A successful outcome in a lawsuit could provide families with compensation to provide ongoing care to loved ones.
