New Jersey Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Winning Results for Victims of Falls & Accidents
Like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries are costly and more likely to result from an accident than most serious injuries. The leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, were falls—followed by car accidents. Up to 52 percent of TBI survivors are left moderately to severely disabled, and less than 1 percent were fully recovered by the time they left the hospital.
The disabilities associated with TBI include the loss of:
- Cognitive function
- Motor function
- Emotional health
These disabilities often necessitate extensive physical and psychological therapy, equipment and home modifications, and the loss of income. An Australian study calculated that the victim of a moderate TBI had to spend on average $8,000 on equipment for the first six years of the injury. Other costs—aides, travel costs, long-term care—took an additional $20,000.
The Real Cost of TBI
Traumatic brain injuries have concrete, damaging quality of life effects on their victims—even if those effects can’t be measured with a dollar sign.
In a study from ClinicoEconomics, TBI survivors were statistically more likely to be unemployed, cause significant stress to their families, lose their closest relationships, become divorced or socially isolated, and have mood disorders. In many cases, victims were also at a higher risk of committing suicide. Another study noted that even if a patient had no physical disabilities and a normal life expectancy, they were often unable to regain full social independence.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
