Seattle Brain Injury Attorney

Defending the Injured in Kirkland, Everett, and Beyond.

Kornfeld Law has decades of experience with traumatic brain injury cases caused by medical negligence, construction accidents, car wrecks, or maritime accidents. Brain injuries include aneurysms, intracranial hemorrhages, subarachnoid hemorrhages, strokes, and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).

If not treated properly and in a timely manner, the outcomes can be dire. We see victims that have suffered paralysis, quadriplegia, permanent brain, or spinal cord damage and even death. Brain injuries are catastrophic not only for the patient but for their loved ones as well. Recovery can take months or years and may not ever see the victim back to the life they once lead. This is why having an experienced attorney is critically important.

Traumatic Brain Injury Involving Medical Negligence

Rob Kornfeld has extensive expertise in cases where medical personnel failed to timely diagnose and treat intracranial aneurysms (aneurysms in the brain).

The negligence of primary care providers, family physicians, radiologists, and other HMO providers who failed to administer needed diagnostic tests, didn’t run them in time or improperly read the scans can cause irreversible injury or even death.

Failure to timely diagnose and treat strokes or aneurysms can lead to intracranial bleeds and cause devastating, life-long injuries, paralysis, cognitive impairment and other health care issues for patients and their families. For those that survive this terrible type of medical negligence, cognitive impairment and occupational or vocational disabilities are common.


Our Seattle brain injury lawyer is committed to brain injury cases than any other attorney you’ll find because he has first-hand knowledge of how devastating recovery can be. Read Rob’s story about his serious car accident where he suffered a mild brain injury and physical injuries including post-concussion syndrome. Fortunately, Rob was able to make a complete recovery and has devoted himself to helping head injury victims and their families.

Rob has helped families recover the finances necessary to put their lives back together and care for their loved ones. No matter the cause of the brain injury, Rob helps victims and their families recover damages from ruptured aneurysms, brain injuries and strokes resulting from medical mistakes, construction work, maritime, or motor vehicle accidents.


With all brain injuries, timely and accurate diagnosis is imperative but the failure to timely diagnose and treat an aneurysm before it ruptures will lead to catastrophic brain injuries or death. Patients who survive will likely have cognitive impairment and disabling injuries, unable to ever live independently again. When victims come in for treatment, it’s important that the proper tests are run promptly.

Failure to diagnose an aneurysm is often caused by a health care provider’s inability to recognize the obvious clinical signs and symptoms of an expanding aneurysm or a sentinel bleed. Misdiagnosis or failure to recognize symptoms of a stroke or an aneurysm is usually tied to providers neglecting to timely perform diagnostic tests (MRI, MRA, or CT-arthrogram) and correctly interpret these diagnostic tests.

Kornfeld Law can investigate whether you, a family member or loved one has a health care malpractice case or personal injury suit related to a brain injury, aneurysm, intracranial hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or stroke. Rob has successfully handled personal injury cases throughout Washington, Idaho, Oregon, as far north as Alaska and south to Arizona.

We have contacts in the healthcare community to facilitate neuropsychologic evaluation of your cognitive deficits and can even direct you to a leading cognitive rehabilitation center to help you recover. For catastrophically injured clients, Rob has enlisted the services of life care planners to help gauge the future medical and financial needs of the victim, particularly when there is significant cognitive impairment and/or full or partial paralysis.


Since the cost of legal services is always a major concern, our Rob Kornfeld offers his legal services to victims on a contingency fee basis. This means the fee is based on a percentage of what Rob recovers for you which is paid at the conclusion of the case. If there is no recovery, there is no fee. Typically, we are able to handle your case with no money out of your pocket up front.

Firsthand Experience with Serious Injuries

In July, 1985, Attorney Rob Kornfeld woke up in the hospital severely injured, with no idea what had happened to him. Through this horrible experience, Rob learned the importance of recovering, financially, physically, and emotionally. After all his surgeries and a full recovery from a head injury (a mild traumatic brain injury), our firm understands what you are going through. The challenge is to find a Seattle brain injury lawyer who not only has the experience, but understands firsthand, what many of you are experiencing.
