Motor vehicle and truck accidents happen in an instant, but often leave victims with permanent, debilitating injuries. Among the worst types of injuries are traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an external force, such as a blow to the head. Traumatic brain injuries may also occur when an object pierces the skull, damaging brain tissue. Motor vehicle accidents and truck accidents are among the most frequently cited causes of traumatic brain injuries. At Leonard Legal Group, our New Jersey traumatic brain injury attorneys handle all types of accident and injury claims, including traumatic brain injuries. We pursue all avenues of recovery to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
Like many injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents and truck accidents, the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may not be immediately apparent. It may be a few days or longer before the accident victim and his loved ones realize that there may be a brain injury.
The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:
Children may also exhibit the above symptoms, as well as:
Some traumatic brain injuries are treatable. However, others may result in permanent disability or even death. Traumatic brain injury victims may no longer be able to work or care for loved ones as they did before the accident.
If an accident victim suffers a traumatic brain injury, that victim may be entitled to damages from the person responsible for the accident. These damages may include:
These are just a few of the damages an accident victim may be able to claim. A number of other damages may be caused by the traumatic brain injury.
To maximize the recovery in a case, traumatic brain injury victims should seek legal guidance as soon as possible after an accident. Experienced personal injury attorneys are able to guide these victims and ensure that their legal rights remain protected throughout the duration of the claim.
