Brain Injury Attorneys Monmouth County, NJ
Helping Clients Suffering from Traumatic Brain Injuries in Red Bank, Wall, Freehold, West Long Branch, and Monmouth County
While modern science is only beginning to scratch the surface of understanding the human brain and how it works, one thing we do know is that brain injuries can have severe and devastating consequences on the lives of those affected.
Anytime you are involved in a physical incident like a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, a slip, and fall, or any other kind of traumatic accident, you are at risk of suffering a “traumatic brain injury (TBI)”. However, if you have suffered a brain injury as the result of another party’s reckless or negligent actions, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering through a personal injury lawsuit.

Accidents and Brain Injuries in Monmouth County NJ
Any kind of trauma has the risk of causing injury to the brain. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of any brain injury is that they are often not discovered until some time after the accident, resulting in not only more severe long-term consequences, but also a much more difficult time recovering the necessary compensation.
For this reason, any time you are involved in any kind of accident or physically assaulted, it is critical that you seek medical attention as quickly as possible. Inform the examining physician that you were involved in a traumatic accident, are concerned over the risk of a brain injury. This will help you diagnose, and treat, any brain injuries you may have suffered before potentially suffering from some of the more severe affects of a brain injury, and protect the strength of any brain injury claim you may have by directly linking your brain injuries to the accident or incident in question.
If a doctor does determine that you have suffered a brain injury after your accident, contact our firm before speaking with any insurance company or their representatives. Anything you say to the insurance company regarding your brain injury can, and most likely will, be used against you, and our attorneys can protect you from making these critical mistakes that have the potential to seriously damage your brain injury claim.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury, Red Bank TBI Lawyers
As already noted, the symptoms and affects of a traumatic brain injury can take time to manifest themselves which is why it is critical that you seek immediate medical attention following any kind of accident, even if you are feeling “OK”. With that being said, here are some of the many symptoms and affects a brain injury can cause:
Physical Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
- Persistent or regularly worsening headaches
- Seizures and convulsions
- Loss of consciousness
- Vomiting and nausea
- Slurred or incoherent speech
- Weakness or numbness in extremities
- Loss of coordination
- Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
Cognitive Brain Injury Symptoms
- Dramatic mood swings
- Noticeably changed behavior patterns
- Profound confusion
- Loss of cognitive functions like reasoning or decision making
- Memory loss
Many of these symptoms have the potential to dramatically alter the lifestyle and lives of both the affected party and their family as well. The longer you wait to diagnose and treat a brain injury or the more severe the brain injury in question is, the worse the long-term affects can become, and the more you will want to ensure that you recover financial compensation to secure your financial future and stability.
Recovering Compensation for a Monmouth County Brain Injury
If you or a family member has suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party or parties, you may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering through a personal injury lawsuit.
One of the most critical aspects of your brain injury lawsuit will be that of the link between your brain injury, and the accident in question. The more time that transpires between your accident, and the diagnosis of your brain injury, the harder this link becomes to prove.
Beyond this critical aspect, you will also need to make sure that you accurately value your medical expenses and lost income. In the case of a less severe injury, this can be relatively straightforward. In the case of a brain injury, however, which often requires on-going and future treatment and rehabilitation, and may also prevent you from returning to your previous line of employment, accurately calculating these damages can be an extremely complex process.
Thankfully, your West Long Branch brain injury attorney will have a network of expert consultants to call upon to assist with this process. Medical experts can help estimate expected future expenses for treatment and rehabilitation, and financial experts can project how much you could have expected to earn, including promotions and raises, had you been able to continue in your previous line of employment.
Finally, the greatest recovery in any personal injury case is usually that of pain and suffering. Emotional distress, physical pain, and loss of enjoyment of life are all factors that can be financially compensated in a personal injury case. When it comes to severe injuries like a brain injury, you can generally expect somewhere between 4 to 5 times your medical expenses as pain and suffering damages.
Of course, while you will eventually have to reimburse your brain injury attorney for their services and any expenses associated with your personal injury case, the greater amount of total recovery an experienced attorney can secure you will almost always pay for these expenses, and often more.
