Brain Injury Victims May Need Lifelong Care
Many brain injuries go undetected, especially in cases of closed head injuries where there is no outward sign that brain damage has occurred. Your family member may come home from the hospital and look the same as he or she always did. However, they may be suffering from symptoms of a traumatic brain injury which will have a profound effect on their life and the lives of your family.
I’m Robert A. Jones, a Certified Civil Trial Attorney in Essex County, New Jersey. My father suffered a serious head injury in an accident many years ago. I know what brain injury victims go through and how it affects the family. If your loved one’s brain injury was caused by another person, I have the training, experience and the financial resources to hire experts such as a neuropsychologist and other specialists who are needed to prove liability and the causative link to the brain damage, and to prove the medical needs of your family member.
I am willing to meet with you at your home or the hospital to discuss your family member’s case. I also meet with relatives and friends. As your lawyer, I will present the story of how your loved one has been affected by a brain injury through the eyes of others, which is very effective in court. I have obtained six- and seven-figure results and settlements for my clients.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Anyone who suffers a traumatic brain injury may have suffered life-altering personality, emotional changes and memory and functional impairments which aren’t apparent to most people. The symptoms of a brain injury may include:
- Loss of memory
- Inability to concentrate
- Day dreaming
- Difficulty sleeping
- Change in ability to read and understand what they have learned
Many people think that their loved one will recover from a brain injury just as they would recover from any bodily injury. However, brain damage is often permanent, and your family member will likely need lifelong specialized services and rehabilitation.
