If you or a loved one have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI), let us start by saying we are genuinely saddened that yet another individual has suffered such an unfortunate life event. We wish you and all survivors of TBI a speedy and complete recovery.
At Siegel & Coonerty, our attorneys represent individuals and their families who have survived a traumatic brain injury. We have the experience, understanding, and proven excellence in representing TBI survivors and never resolve a case until our sense of justice is fully satisfied.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) never discriminates. Each of us is vulnerable to unforeseen circumstances that — in the space of a heartbeat — can change life forever. Recognizing this, we see our responsibility as personal injury lawyers representing TBI survivors in New York courts, not simply to strive to achieve the fullest justice for our clients, but also to do our best to make their life easier in any way we can.
Experience has taught us too well how likely it is that an injured person will face a future with long challenges. Having empathy with these clients matters greatly to us every step of the way. As a result, the relationships we enter into with clients are also journeys we take together. At the same time, securing fair compensation for their pain and suffering winds up being only a fraction of what we do.
TBI is a complex injury that comprises a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities in which “mild” brain damage is never less than functionally severe. From the initial shock and despair associated with the trauma and throughout the recovery phases, TBI survivors and their families face a life of continuous coping and problem-solving. For the above reasons, we have dedicated our practice to helping all those impacted by TBI.

The objective of Super Lawyers is to create a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys in New York that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.
At Siegel & Coonerty, we believe it is important that the lawyer you choose to handle your traumatic brain injury case be a member of the select attorneys who have been chosen as a Super Lawyer. But beware: not all attorneys selected as a Super Lawyer are experienced or have the requisite know-how to handle a traumatic brain injury matter.
Andrew W. Siegel has been selected as a New York Super Lawyer continuously since 2010. In addition, Sean E. Coonerty has been selected as a Super Lawyer continuously since 2014.
Each year Andy and Sean dedicate their Super Lawyer statement to the courageous survivors of traumatic brain injury. The reason? Siegel & Coonerty commit themselves to and have deep experience in helping survivors of TBI.
Decades of advocating for the TBI community led Andy Siegel to sit on the board of directors of the Brain Injury Association of New York State. Andy’s knowledge, unmatched ability to explain brain anatomy and function, and deep litigation experience has resulted in him obtaining more than $80 MILLION in JURY VERDICTS.
These incredible results have achieved the status of Top 100 Verdicts reported in New York State on multiple occasions. He is also a published author of multiple award-winning novels chronicling the stories of these courageous survivors.
Siegel & Coonerty possesses the essential knowledge and expertise to properly, appropriately, and successfully litigate to a more than satisfactory conclusion all cases involving mild, moderate, or severe traumatic brain injury.
Our NYC traumatic brain injury lawyers can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, future care and treatment, cost of rehabilitation, lost wages, loss of future earnings, and, in some cases, pain and suffering.
