Jacoby & Meyers, LLP is proud to announce the addition of The Neurolaw Trial Group to their New York and New Jersey Personal Injury Practice. Under Director Michael Flomenhaft and Assistant Director Benedene Cannata (formerly of Flomenhaft & Cannata, LLP), the group is dedicated to the representation of victims of traumatic brain, spinal injuries and severe chronic pain, and brings the most advanced tests of the brain, spine, and pain to the courtroom. “As one of our fundamental goals is to serve and educate people about their legal rights, the creation of The Neurolaw Trial Group brings us to the forefront of this important and pioneering area,” says Gail Koff, one of the founding partners of Jacoby & Meyers. “We believe the formation of this group places Jacoby & Meyers in a preeminent position in the representation of cases involving serious injuries that were previously minimized or unappreciated.”

Even seemingly minor traumas—whether a slip or fall or a low-impact motor vehicle collision—can have devastating but overlooked effects on a person’s memory, personality, and other aspects of brain function. Attorneys skilled in neurolaw (which refers to integration of neurology and neuroscience knowledge and law) bring a special competence to proving the full severity of these problems and obtaining large financial awards reflecting that severity.

As frequently the subtle nature of these injuries is the antithesis of the havoc they can wreak on a person’s life, showing the full life and family consequences of these injuries is much more than a matter of advanced medical tests. As explained by Mr. Flomenhaft, “The trial lawyer’s challenge in these cases is using these tests to help validate the story told to the jury of the victim’s loss: who they were, who they aspired to become, and the shattered future created in the wake of their loss.” Mr. Flomenhaft has achieved a consistently remarkable record in cases that before his entry on the case were not seen as being medically well-substantiated.

The attorneys in The Neurolaw Trial Group bring the knowledge and experience required for the enhanced investigation and demonstration of traumatic brain and spinal injuries, and severe chronic pain, as well as the elite trial experience and skill needed to present these injuries and the human and family agonies they cause. The group’s excellent reputation is further evidenced by its multiple million and multi-million dollar recoveries for proving brain, spine, and/or severe pain, most of which have come when entering a case-in-progress upon referral from other fine attorneys.
