Types of Brain Injury Cases We Handle

At Brach Eichler Trial Lawyers, we handle a variety of different types of brain injuries resulting from a wide range of accidents. Brain injuries vary from minor to catastrophic, depending on the damage to the brain. When the brain is injured in such a way that brain tissue is destroyed, the result is traumatic brain injury (TBI). A traumatic brain injury can occur by:

  • Blunt force. A blow or force to the head causes bruising or bleeding of the brain. Blunt force trauma can lead to what is called a coup-contrecoup injury, a type of non-penetrative TBI where the force causes the brain to hit both sides of the inside of the skull.
  • Penetration. An object penetrates the skull, destroying brain tissue and causing a brain to bleed.
  • Shaking. Violent shaking can also cause a coup-contrecoup injury and/or damage to brain tissue.

Brain swelling is another possibility. Swelling within the closed cranium can cause further brain tissue destruction. This is why anyone who suffers a brain injury, even one that causes brief unconsciousness, should seek medical care immediately, even if the injury does not appear severe.

As with any injury, TBIs can range from mild to severe, with the following symptoms:

  • Mild TBI. Physical symptoms may include loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes, confusion and disorientation, headache, nausea, fatigue, speech problems, insomnia, and dizziness. Victims can suffer sensitivity to light, blurry vision, ringing in the ears, and loss of taste or smell. They may have difficulty with memory and comprehension and suffer from mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
  • Moderate to severe TBI. Physical symptoms can include loss of consciousness from several minutes to hours, persistent headache, repeated vomiting, convulsions and seizures, dilation of pupils, inability to awaken from sleep, numbness in extremities, and loss of coordination and motor skills. Victims can suffer serious cognitive impairments, speech disorders, mood swings, confusion, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

Victims who suffer a concussion or a mild TBI recover over time, but those with moderate TBI often require a variety of therapies and rehabilitation. Severe TBI victims can be permanently disabled.

A brain injury can be anything from a bump on the head to a TBI. Unfortunately, without proper care, a minor head injury can rapidly turn into a TBI. Common causes of brain injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Struck by/struck against accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Physical assaults
  • Sports-related contact
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injury

Brach Eichler Trial Lawyers’s New Jersey brain injury attorneys have vast knowledge and experience in personal injury litigation, including work with TBI victims and their families. Our investigations of brain injury accidents include determining liability and the full costs of the injuries to the victim.

Serious neck injuries from personal injury accidents

The neck is a very vulnerable part of the body. In auto accidents, for example, the impact of a crash can cause tremendous torque on the neck, stretching ligaments unnaturally and displacing the discs that cushion the vertebrae. A high-speed crash can deliver enough force to compress or crack vertebrae or even sever the spinal column. The result is often permanent painful and/or disabling injury, such as:

  • Soft tissue injury — Also called whiplash because of the back-and-forth motion that inflicts the harm, this type of injury consists of contusions, strains and tears to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and discs of the neck. Intensive therapy is generally necessary to relieve pain, rebuild strength, and restore range of motion. When the discs are involved, bulges applying pressure on the spinal cord can cause loss of strength and function to the arms, hands, and fingers.
  • Quadriplegia — When extensive damage to the spinal cord occurs, a victim can suffer paralysis below the trauma point. A trauma point in the neck can mean paralysis in both arms and legs as well as loss of bodily functions. Quadriplegia is an injury that requires a lifetime of medical and personal care.

Our team works with qualified medical experts to ascertain the full extent and permanency of the harm you’ve suffered. We work tirelessly to build the strongest case possible for the highest possible recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Regarding Brain Injuries

At Brach Eichler Trial Lawyers, we receive many questions from clients regarding brain injury cases. Below are some of the most frequently asked. If you have any questions about your particular brain injury case, feel free to contact the compassionate New Jersey brain injury lawyers at Brach Eichler Trial Lawyers by calling (973) 364-8300.

Can a TBI occur even if a person does not lose consciousness?

While severe TBIs often involve a loss of consciousness, this does not have to happen for a serious brain injury to occur. This is why medical treatment should be sought immediately whenever a TBI is suspected.  

What types of damages are available in a traumatic brain injury case? 

Under New Jersey law, both economic and non-economic damages are available to victims of brain injuries. Common damages sought include those for past and future medical expenses, physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of earning potential.

What is the deadline for filing a brain injury lawsuit in New Jersey?


New Jersey’s statute of limitations establishes the deadline for filing a personal injury claim at two years from the date the injury occurred. Because there are exceptions to the rule in special circumstances, it is critical you speak with a New Jersey personal injury attorney concerning these limitation periods, even if you think your statute of limitations has expired.
