Although a traumatic brain injury is invisible to others, the effects that such an injury can have on a victim can be very visible and long-lasting. If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the negligence, recklessness, or willful acts of another party, you deserve to seek compensation from that party for your injury and damages, including costs of treatment, ongoing and future care costs, lost wages and earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
Because a traumatic brain injury can require treatment and care for the rest of an injured person’s life, pursuing a claim for compensation following a wrongfully-inflicted traumatic brain injury can be especially complicated. You only get one chance to hold the party or parties responsible for your traumatic brain injury accountable for compensation, so you must make sure that you are being fully compensated for not only your past and ongoing but also your future damages and expenses.
At Drazin & Warshaw, our traumatic brain injury attorneys have extensive experience helping injured victims recover maximum compensation after being injured through no fault of their own. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to learn more about your rights and options.
According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can vary widely depending on whether you or a loved one have suffered a mild injury or a moderate-to-severe injury. Symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury include:
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can display the same symptoms of mild injuries, in addition to symptoms like seizures, dilated pupils, clear fluids draining from the ears or nose, inability to be awakened from sleep, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, agitation or combativeness, slurred speech, and coma or other consciousness disorders.
Traumatic brain injuries usually require prompt medical attention. A mild traumatic brain injury typically requires no more treatment other than rest and avoiding physical or cognitive activities (such as school or work) until cleared by a doctor. Over-the-counter medication can be used to relieve headaches and other pains. Victims of mild traumatic brain injuries should also be monitored for persistent or worsening symptoms.
A moderate to severe traumatic brain injury will usually require more significant medical intervention, such as:

If you or a family member have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s careless, reckless, or willfully wrongful actions, you may be entitled to recover compensation for damages such as past and future medical care (including long-term personal care), lost wages for missed work during your recovery, lost earning capacity if your brain injury prevents you from returning to your old job and you suffer a reduction in your income as a result, pain and suffering, and lost quality of life.
Potentially yes. Even if another motorist or party was responsible for causing your bicycle or motorcycle accident, that party may argue that you contributed to or were partially at fault for your traumatic brain injury if it can be shown that wearing a helmet would have prevented or reduced the risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury. Under New Jersey’s modified comparative negligence rules, you can still recover compensation provided you are not found more than 50 percent responsible, while your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault that you bear for your injuries.
