Brain Injuries, Head Trauma, And Accidents
Serious brain injuries often result in cognitive impairment, chronic headaches, memory loss, and future complications that affect everything from coordination to hearing and eyesight. In many cases, however, it's hard to know for sure what the long-term consequences are of a serious head injury. At Drazin and Warshaw, we work closely with medical experts, medical economists, and life care planners in order to determine the scope and financial effect of a brain injury. We consider costs associated with physical therapy, surgery, in-home nursing care, disability, and lost wages. We're also prepared to investigate the cause and nature of an accident should an insurance company attempt to shift blame away from the policy holder and onto our client.
If you or a family member is suffering from a brain injury due to the negligence of an employer, car driver, property owner, or manufacturer, contact the Red Bank, New Jersey, brain injury attorneys at Drazin and Warshaw today to schedule a free consultation.

Traumatic Brain Injury — Planning For The Future
Most traumatic brain injuries result in the need for ongoing care throughout a person's life. Especially in cases involving children, it's only natural for parents to want some assurance that their child's needs will be taken care of. In working with our clients, we explain how a structured settlement or special needs trust can help you take care of the future needs of someone suffering from a serious brain injury.
There are tax implications and Medicaid eligibility considerations that should be taken into account when deciding whether to accept a structured settlement or establish a special needs trust with any proceeds from an award or settlement. Our attorneys can explain the issues involved and help you make a decision that makes the most sense for you.
