Do I Have a Valid Case?
This is a question that should be discussed with an experienced attorney. At Lynch Law Firm, we have been helping personal injury victims for more than 20 years. We have a proven track record and know how to build a strong case as we pursue maximum compensation for damages.
There are many factors that we may need to consider about the merits of your claim:
- How your brain injury occurred
- Your medical diagnosis
- Symptoms you have experienced
- How your injury may be affecting your ability to work
- Evidence you may have collected from the scene of the accident
Our attorneys must assess whether we may be able to prove your brain injury was a result of negligence. That means we must establish there was a duty of care that was breached, and this breach directly led to your injury. Your injury must have created damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
An example of breaching a duty of care is driving drunk and causing a crash. Another example might be medical malpractice while performing a surgical procedure. There are many other examples that may give you grounds to seek compensation.
Damages You May Be Able to Claim
Personal injury victims may be able to seek various forms of compensation to cover the physical, financial and emotional effects of an injury. For example, your New Jersey brain injury lawyer may be able to seek compensation for the costs of treating your injury:
- MRIs and CT scans
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Prescription medication
- Behavioral counseling
Brain injuries are often severe and expensive to treat. Without proper treatment, you may have a higher risk of having permanent side effects. Treatment may also help you better manage those side effects to improve your quality of life. It may be very difficult to recover full compensation to cover these costs without an experienced attorney representing you.
You may also be eligible to seek compensation for the wages you lost because of your injury. For example, if you had to miss work to seek treatment or because you were physically unable to work, you should be able to include the wages you lost in your claim.
Other damages that may be pursued after a traumatic brain injury may include:
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Lost companionship
- Lost enjoyment of life
If you have questions about your claim, contact Lynch Law Firm today. There are no upfront fees for our services.

How Much Time Do You Have to File a Claim?
You have two years from the date of the crash to file a lawsuit over your brain injury. If you do not file before those two years pass, you may lose the right to file a lawsuit.
While there are exceptions to this deadline, you should review your situation with a licensed attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer needs time to determine if you may have a case, what it may be worth, and how to build a strong case.
Defining Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury usually happens when an external force causes dysfunction in the brain. These injuries can generally be grouped into two categories: open and closed head injuries.
An open head injury occurs when something penetrates the skull. The result of this could be death or catastrophic damage that leads to severe physical and/or mental limitations. Victims may suffer:
- Damaged brain tissue
- Skull perforations or fractures
- Torn meninges
A closed head injury involves movement of the brain within the skull and the skull is not penetrated. These often happen in car accidents because the body can be violently thrown around. Examples of closed head injuries include:
- Concussions, particularly those that occur in contact sports like football
- Coup-contrecoup injuries
- Skull fractures
While the initial injury is bad enough, there is a risk of suffering secondary injuries, such as:
- Swelling of the brain (cerebral edema)
- Infection in the meningeal layers of the brain
- Changes in the amount of sodium, potassium and neurotransmitters in the brain
- Hypoxia (insufficient oxygen in the brain)
- High blood pressure
- Low blood pressure
Symptoms of a Brain Injury
There are a variety of symptoms that may indicate you suffered a brain injury. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek treatment right away. If you wait the injury could get much worse.
- Trouble with balance or coordination
- Feeling lightheaded
- Ringing in the ears
- Headache, especially one that gets worse
- Mood changes
- Clear fluid leading from the nose or ear
- Memory loss
If your accident was caused by another’s negligent, careless or intentional actions, you may be eligible to seek compensation. Contact our New Jersey brain injury lawyers to learn more.

Long-Term Impact of a Brain Injury
Brain injuries must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. That said, they often result in devastating consequences that can influence a patient's life for years to come. A brain injury can impact your thinking, memory, emotional function and movement.
Many individuals who have been hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury will have some sort of ongoing medical problem. This could include:
- Altered emotions including fear, anxiety, aggression and other personality changes
- Difficulty seeing, hearing or touching
- Decreased cognitive functions, such as reduced ability to recall things
- Impaired motor functions
These types of injuries can require extensive medical treatment and on-going care. That is why it is important to consider possible legal options for seeking compensation.
