Head and Brain Injuries in NJ
It's estimated that 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI every year. Brain injuries typically occur due to a blow to the head or when an object penetrates a person's skull. The people most at risk are children, young adults, and people over the age of 75. Females are also twice as likely to suffer a TBI than males.
Of the people affected by TBI, many survive and are left with life-long permanent injury. As a result, it's estimated that some 5 million Americans are living with a permanent TBI-related disability.
Someone suffers a brain injury every 21 seconds in the U.S. leading to a total of more than one and a half million victims annually. Currently, more than five million people are living with disabilities resulting from a head and brain injury. These types of devastating traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are frequently the result of a vehicle accident.
Common Causes of TBI
Here are just a few examples of how a Traumatic Brain Injury can be caused by someone else's negligence:
- Car Accidents - When a negligent driver causes a motor vehicle accident, the risk of TBI is high. The injured party can be another driver, a bicyclist or a pedestrian. Pedestrian injuries can be especially dangerous.
- Slip & Falls - If you fall on someone else's property due to a dangerous condition that shouldn't exist you may be entitled to compensation. Slip & fall injuries are common and even more dangerous to the elderly.
- Workplace Accidents - Injuries in the workplace can involve car accidents, incidents with machinery or falling objects, and more. While workers' compensation typically addresses the costs of injury, some workers may seek additional compensation through a personal injury claim.
- Product Injuries Defective products can cause a TBI. Design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn are all grounds for a product liability claim.
Symptoms of TBI
Some common effects of serious head and brain injury include the following:
- Memory loss
- Cognitive impairment
- Anger / Mood swings
- Coordination problems
- Loss of mobility
