The Importance of Using a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Many brain injuries inflict long-lasting damage on the victim. The brain may never fully recover from head injury trauma causing lingering symptoms that range from headaches, mood swings, memory loss, cognitive dysfunction and personality changes. When someone else’s negligence causes a serious or catastrophic injury, the victim may need legal representation to fight for fair compensation. Hiring a lawyer for you or a loved one’s TBI claim in Bergen County could ensure an insurance company does not take advantage of you. Your lawyer will know aggressive negotiation tactics to use in the pursuit of maximum results.
What Are Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?
Any circumstance that exposes a victim’s head to potential injury could cause a brain injury. Even a minor bump to the head could concuss the brain and cause symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, mood changes and trouble sleeping. More serious blows or penetrating injuries, such as from bullets or shrapnel, could cause severe brain injuries.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing an Injury Claim in New Jersey?
Like all personal injury claims in New Jersey, brain injury lawsuits have a deadline for filing. The statute of limitations, or maximum time limit, is two years from the date of the accident. If you do not come forward with your brain injury claim within two years, the courts will most likely reject your claim. If you or your loved one does not discover the brain injury until after the accident, you will have two years from the date of discovery to file. Act quickly to make sure you have a valid claim to damages.
What Compensation Is Available?
