    Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) in New Jersey

    A traumatic brain injury typically occurs when an individual suffers a blow or impact to the head. In some cases, a person’s body experiences enough force to move the brain inside their skull. A TBI can also result from a puncture wound or a penetrating injury.

    TBIs are generally categorized based on their degree of severity: mild, moderate, and severe. However, no matter how serious or mild a TBI is, it could still result in an adverse and lifelong impact for the victim. For instance, a concussion is a mild degree of brain injury. Still, it could leave a victim facing long-term neurological issues, including brain fog, fatigue, nausea, depression, and persistent headaches. The most severe TBIs are often fatal.

    Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries in New Jersey

    A TBI can be caused by a wide range of accidents, from slip and falls to car crashes. Below, we review some of the types of cases that the Reiff Law Firm handles that result in traumatic brain injuries.

    Automotive Vehicle Accidents

    Cars and other vehicles are being engineered better to protect their drivers and passengers from fatal injuries. Unfortunately, many accident victims still suffer TBIs, which are one of the most common injuries sustained in an automotive vehicle crash. The excessive forces people in car accidents experience increase the risk of brain injuries, especially if the neck and head snap back and forth.

    Slip and Falls

    Probably the most typical way people are injured is through slip and fall accidents. These incidents usually only result in minor injuries. However, if a person loses their balance and hits their head on a hard surface at traumatic brain injury is likely. Older adults and younger children are especially vulnerable to head injuries from slip and fall accidents.

    Birth Injuries

    For some unfortunate victims, their life begins with a TBI. During a difficult delivery, an infant’s brain is vulnerable to a brain injury. When a doctor or other medical professional places excessive force on a child’s skull, usually with surgical instruments such as forceps or a vacuum extractor, a newborn could suffer a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries could also occur if the child’s brain is deprived of oxygen.

    Potential Financial Damages for a Traumatic Brain Injury in New Jersey

    If you suffered a brain injury caused by another’s negligence, you could seek monetary compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. This is critical because brain injury often results in a significant financial burden on a victim and their family. There is a long list of damages you could recover through a personal injury claim.

    Medical and Rehabilitative Expenses

    The medical costs associated with a brain injury are astronomical. No matter what causes a TBI, the victim will need immediate and expensive medical treatment, including surgery, hospitalization, diagnostic tests, medication, and physical therapy. Many of these treatments will last for years or a lifetime.

    If someone suffers a TBI, they could potentially lose a significant portion of their brain functions. Depending on the location and severity of the damage, a TBI could affect body functions, communication, or leave the victim with permanent muscle weakness or paralysis. Rehabilitation could include years of sessions with multiple specialists, including occupational and physical therapists. If the damage impacted a person’s ability to communicate, they could require speech therapy. Therapy could last for years and is very costly.

    Nursing Care and Home Modifications

    In severe cases, a person who suffers a traumatic brain injury will not be able to take care of themselves. In some situations, they will require constant medical attention at a nursing home or a specialized long-term care facility.

    In other cases, a victim of a TBI could return home – if the home is modified to account for their injury and disabilities. A family may need to hire a home healthcare professional to provide the medical attention necessary. It is also possible that the home will require modifications, such as ramps, rails, or guards to accommodate a victim’s wheelchair. Through a personal injury lawsuit, you could be compensated for these expensive necessities.

    Lost Wages

    If you cannot work for weeks, months, or for the rest of your life, you are could seek compensation for your lost wages. Many victims of TBIs are impaired to the point where returning to work is unlikely. Our New Jersey traumatic brain injury attorneys work with economic specialists to determine what you would have earned if you have not suffered such a devastating injury.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
