Suffering a brain injury is a life-changing event for some individuals. The severity of the damage and the location have a big part in how much of an impact it will have on the person. For some, the future is filled with medical care, rehabilitation therapy and personal care assistance. All of this can be costly.
If the brain injury was caused by another person’s negligence, you might opt to seek compensation for the damages that you’re facing. There are many different types of damages that you might have to deal with. The medical bills are often a primary one because these are often exorbitant, and they can last the rest of your life if the injury was catastrophic.
You might also be dealing with time off work as you heal. In severe cases, victims of brain injuries can’t ever return to work. This causes a dip or complete cessation of their income. This is another type of damage you can claim. We can review your earnings history and determine what lost wages you’re dealing with.
There are also other types of damages that you might incur. If your home needs modifications because of the injury, that would be an injury-related expense that we could include in your case. It’s important for us to review the entire situation, so we can seek all applicable damages, including those you haven’t incurred yet.
We understand that you need to focus on your healing right now. New Jersey law limits the time you have to seek compensation, so be sure that we have your case as quickly as possible. We can handle the legal matter while you take care of your health.
