Power lawyer Ben Brafman is recovering at home after a serious fall that he told us could have lead to a “tragic situation.”
Brafman — who has represented Michael Jackson, Diddy, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Harvey Weinstein and “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli — said he fell down the steps at his house in Nassau County on April 18 and was taken to the hospital, where he stayed for five days.
“I was unconscious for a half-hour,” Brafman told us. He said that two CAT scans revealed no brain damage, but “I feel as if I was hit by a baseball bat,” and he said he’s more “tired than I ever have been before.”
But he assured us he will make a complete recovery. “I am out of work for a week when, quite frankly, there is no work, so the timing was fortuitous,” he said. “I am coming back and I will be stronger than ever. That is what every neurologist told me. I will be in fighting form again soon.”
The 71-year-old called the incident a story “of survival and coming back from an otherwise potentially tragic situation.”
