Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Jersey City, NJ
National statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that more than two million people go to emergency rooms each year and receive treatment for brain injuries. As a catastrophic injury lawyer in Jersey City, NJ knows all too well, tragically, about 50,000 of those victims die from their injuries, with another 280,000 victims admitted to the hospital because of the severity of their brain injury. Keep in mind, however, these statistics do not include the countless number of victims who actually suffer concussions but do not seek out medical treatment. The CDC estimates that in the past dozen years, more than $60 billion has been spent on medical expenses and lost wages for treatment and the losses caused by brain injuries.
At Brown, LLC, we have successfully represented many clients who sustained brain injuries in accidents caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party. Each Jersey City catastrophic injury lawyer at our firm understands how much of an overwhelming impact a brain injury can have on a victim, not only emotionally and physically, but also financially.
The CDC also reports that falls are the most common causes of brain injuries. In fact, falls cause 40 percent of brain injuries that happen each year. The most vulnerable to these injuries are adults who are over 65 years of age and children who are younger than 14.
The next most common causes of brain injury – causing approximately 15 percent of injuries – is blunt trauma which is unintentional. This often occurs when the victim is hit in the head with some type of object.
Car accidents are also another frequent cause of brain injury, responsible for just under 15 percent. However, car crashes cause more than 25 percent of all fatal brain injuries.
Seek Medical Attention
If an individual receives any type of injury to their head, they should immediately seek medical treatment to determine if there has been any injury sustained to the brain. Many people do not realize that even a mild concussion can cause serious issues. It can also take days for symptoms of the concussion to show up but waiting to see a doctor can be dangerous. If a concussion is left undiagnosed and untreated, can be fatal. If a person does survive a serious concussion, they can have issues with thinking, emotions, sensations, and language skills.
In addition to the immediate effects and dangers of a brain injury, multiple studies have also shown that victims can develop epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders.
