New Jersey Head Injury Attorneys
Typically, head injuries involve being struck in the head area, and are often associated with car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports related injuries, or getting a blow to the head while on the job. Depending on the severity of the trauma to the head, these may also be referred to as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), which involve damage to the brain tissue.
According to the National Institutes of Health, “TBI symptoms vary depending on the extent of the injury and the area of the brain affected.” They cite that mild TBI can involve headaches, dizziness, mood swings, trouble with memory, etc. Whereas a person with moderate or severe TBI, can exhibit symptoms of slurred speech, vomiting and nausea, and even loss of consciousness, or convulsions / seizures.
The Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey, whose mission is to “support and advocate for individuals affected by brain injury and raise awareness through education and prevention” notes that, in the United States, of the “2.5 million who sustain a TBI each year, 56,000 die, and another 282,000 are hospitalized.” They are sponsoring a “Walk for Brain Injury Awareness” on October 7, 2017, in multiple locations throughout the state.
