Our Attorneys Understand the Impact of a Traumatic Brain Injury
A broken bone may heal and fade into the realm of “history,” but a traumatic brain injury can severely change the lives of the accident victim and his or her family. Depending on the extent of brain damage, symptoms or side effects of a traumatic brain injury can include:
- Speech impairment
- Cognitive impairment
- Lack of motor skill control
- Partial paralysis
- Personality changes or mood swings
- Many other impairments
A traumatic brain injury can result from any type of accident in which there is forcible trauma to the head, such as a motorcycle crash, auto accident, construction accident or slip-and-fall accident. However, brain injuries can also result from other forms of negligence such as a surgical error involving anesthesia overdose.
Our Essex County brain injury lawyers have the experience and skill necessary to guide accident victims and their families through the legal process of recovering compensation for their losses and suffering following an accident that results in a brain or head injury. We also work with neuropsychologists to determine the amount of cognitive deficit you or a loved one has suffered as a result of the traumatic brain injury.
Essex and Hudson County Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
A spinal cord injury is one of the most severe injuries in which accident victims still have full cognitive abilities, but must rely significantly on others for help with some of their most basic needs, from dressing and daily living activities to mobility around and outside of the home. Most individuals suffering a spinal cord injury in a car accident, truck accident or other serious accident will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of their lives.
Our Essex and Hudson County spinal cord injury lawyers offer the experienced legal help clients need whether they are suffering from paraplegia (paralysis to the lower extremities), quadriplegia (paralysis to the upper and lower extremities) or other form of paralysis caused by trauma to the spinal cord. Given the vulnerability of the spinal cord, any trauma — from a bruised or pinched spinal cord to severed spinal cord — could result in life-changing damage.
Quality Legal Help for Victims and Their Families
Accident victims suffering from a brain injury or spinal cord injury may require life-long care, medical treatment and rehabilitation, and may be incapable of returning to any form of employment. In some situations, the ongoing support provided by family members is so demanding that a spouse or parent may require leave from work.
Financial recovery in a personal injury lawsuit can compensate the accident victim for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future anticipated income, future medical needs, home modifications, loss of enjoyment of life and other hardships. Our attorneys work with medical experts and economists to demonstrate the full extent of your losses, needs and value of your case so that you recover the full compensation you need and deserve.
