Slip and Fall Accident
Moderate and severe TBIs require immediate medical treatment to ensure the brain continues to receive blood/oxygen flow and to prevent further damage. Emergency treatment may include anti-seizure medication and diuretics to prevent seizures and reduce swelling. Depending on the injury, surgery may be needed to repair skull fractures, open a window in the skull to relieve pressure from swelling, or stop bleeding and remove clots. Long-term, people who suffer severe TBIs often require rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and psychotherapy.

A TBI, or traumatic brain injury, refers to any injury that affects the functioning of the brain. A TBI usually occurs due to a violent blow or jolt to the head or body or due to an object piercing the skull into brain tissue, although some TBIs occur due to disease or infection or due to a lack of blood or oxygen flow to the brain. Mild TBIs only affect the brain temporarily, usually for a few minutes to a few days, while more serious injuries can result in permanent physical damage to brain tissue and lead to long-term complications or disabilities or even death.
After you have suffered a head injury in an accident or other incident that wasn’t your fault, steps you can take to protect your rights and options include documenting the scene of the accident and your injury by taking photos or video, seeking medical treatment as soon as possible and following all your treatment instructions, and speaking to a New Jersey traumatic brain injury attorney to get help with pursuing a claim for compensation.
