Did you know that each year in the U.S., over a million individuals incur brain injuries from incidents such as automobile accidents, swimming/diving accidents, falls, blunt force trauma, and criminal acts? Unfortunately, however, because of the subtle nature of such injuries, they tend to go diagnosed, which can be tremendously dangerous because brain injuries, when left untreated, can lead to death.
That being the case, if you’ve been involved in an accident in which you have suffered an injury to the brain, you should hire a well-versed New Jersey brain injury attorney to assist you so that your rights will be protected. If it turns out that your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, your attorney can help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
Certain types of head injuries can cause major and/or permanent damage to the brain. In certain cases, though, this damage might be reversed over time; however, they more often than not result in a serious form of permanent impairment, such as memory and/or sensory loss and traumatic brain injuries. While skull fractures/penetrations are the obvious causes of brain injuries, you should know that brain damage can also stem from what’s known as a “closed head injury.”
