Helping brain injury victims hurt in a wide variety of New Jersey accidents

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur any time there is a significant impact to the head, when the head strikes or is struck by another object. In addition, a sudden jolt can also cause a TBI when the brain strikes the inside of the skull, causing bruising on the brain or shearing of vital blood vessels. A TBI can thus result from a fall; being struck by a falling object; or in a motor vehicle accident when the occupant is thrown from the vehicle; strikes the dashboard, seat or steering wheel; or suffers from severe whiplash. The Law Offices of Andrew R. Jacobs handles head and brain injury cases that occur in all of these types of situations. See the following pages for more information on the firm’s representation in these areas:

Signs & Symptoms of Head or Brain Trauma

A brain injury can cause serious long-term or permanent disabilities, including impairments in cognitive thinking, motor function, personality and mood. If left untreated, a brain injury that is otherwise treatable may prove fatal. Depending upon the exact nature of the injury, however, prompt, emergency treatment with surgery and medication may not only prevent death but can also make an incredible difference in the ability of the injury victim to recover and rehabilitate. If you or a family member received a head injury or whiplash-type of injury, it is important to get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms of a brain injury. If you do experience any of the following, you should seek medical attention right away, as these may be signs of a TBI or other serious injury:

  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Confused or disoriented
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Severe or persistent headache
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision
  • Numbness/paralysis
  • Change in mood or personality
  • Depression
  • Change in sleep pattern
  • Ringing in the ears
