Mild traumatic brain injury: Seeking compensation

Experiencing any forceful contact to the head that disrupts natural functions is the commonly accepted definition of traumatic brain injury. It's often referred to as a TBI. On occasion, a brain injury is the result of an illness or stroke, but they are known as acquired brain injuries. When a TBI is the result of an accident, especially if it is caused by someone's negligence or carelessness, the victim may attempt to get compensation for the injury through insurance claims or a lawsuit.

Planning for financial recovery after brain injury is critical

People who suffer traumatic brain injuries and the families who love them are devastated by the personal injury. It doesn't matter what the circumstances were that caused the harm when one drills down to what it will likely take to recover and move on. Out of fear, victims and loved ones might accept a settlement that sounds like a huge amount of money. We caution anyone involved in these circumstances to step back and, with the advice of an experienced legal advocate, think carefully about the myriad issues that may apply to the family in the future.

Brain injury victims need special legal help

Some of the most difficult personal injury cases that legal teams work on deal with injuries affecting a victim's brain. The injury can be the result of a horrific car accident or a simple slip and fall on someone's property. Sometimes, the injury doesn't surface immediately. Other times, intensive medical care is an immediate need. Whatever the circumstances of the accident are doesn't really matter to the victims. Recovery does.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

It is one of the most devastating injuries New Jersey residents can suffer: traumatic brain injury. It's also a serious public health problem all across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains a TBI is caused by a jolt, bump or blow to the head. It can also be the result of an intrusive injury that disrupts brain function.

What is traumatic brain injury and what causes it?

Sports injuries, car accidents, falls, bicycle and skateboarding injuries and major bumps to the head are all injuries that can lead to traumatic brain injury. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, traumatic brain injury is caused by a sudden trauma that causes damage to brain matter. A sudden and violent hit to the skull can cause the damage, but so can an injury that pierces the skull and allows an object to injure the brain's soft tissue.

Do you know the symptoms of a brain injury?

Most residents of New Jersey spend little, if any, time thinking about living with the aftermath of a serious injury. Perhaps one of the most disruptive is a traumatic brain injury. This type of injury can be suffered in a variety of situations including slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents and workplace accidents.
