Evaluating the Severity and Cost of a TBI with Our TBI Attorneys in Perth Amboy
An accident – even a minor one – can be stressful. However, when it comes to TBIs, because of their nature, they are often traumatizing and life-changing. As a victim, you may face an entirely new set of problems you never thought of before. Constant trips to the hospital, sleepless nights, PTSD, the need for therapy, surgery, or other medical procedures, and emotional suffering, loss of wages, and family stress are just some of the common problems reported by TBI victims and their families.
New Jersey law categorizes TBIs as personal injuries. Victims of such injuries may be entitled to compensation if it can be shown that the TBI in question was caused by the actions or negligence of a third party. While this will not undo the damage that has been done, the money from a compensation payout can help you pay for expensive medical treatments and provide for your family when you may be unable to do so.
One of the most important determinants of any insurance payout for a TBI case is the extent of the injuries in question. Brain injuries are sometimes categorized as severe or mild. The signs of a mild brain injury are:
- A loss of memory
- Frequent mood swings
- Violent outbursts
- Sensory organ issues
- Sensitivity to sound or light
- A loss of smell
In addition to the above, serious brain injuries can lead to the following:
- Severe, chronic depression
- The loss of senses or motor functions
- A loss of memory
- Physical incapacitation

How Our Perth Amboy Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers Will Help
Our team of dedicated TBI attorneys in Perth Amboy will handle every aspect of your case from start to finish. The process starts with a free case evaluation, after which we will determine liability, file a claim, and then fight for compensation.
First, we will evaluate your case at no charge to identify the claims that may be open to you under all relevant and applicable laws. We will also determine the extent of your injuries and will aggregate your accident-related losses so that we have a ballpark compensation figure to which you are likely entitled.
Next, we will identify the at-fault party that was responsible for the accident in which you were hurt. Depending on how and where you were injured, the at-fault party can be a motor vehicle operator, medical caregiver, a device manufacturer, your employer, or another party whose actions, negligence, errors, or ineptitude led to an accident in which you were harmed when those dangerous actions or errors should not have occurred.

Filing Your Claim
Once we know how your accident occurred, who caused it, and the extent to which you were hurt therein, we will file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer. We will first determine which of the relevant insurance policies and coverages apply to your case and what their limits are so that we file using the correct policies and limits.
Fighting for Compensation
If the insurer accepts your claim, you will be compensated and the case is closed. However, if it is denied or you are given a lowball offer in return, we are prepared to take your case to court so that the court investigates the case and provides its ruling. We provide complete courtroom representation and insurance negotiation services throughout this time as well.
