The term “traumatic brain injury” or “TBI” is commonly used to describe a blunt force impact or trauma injury to the head. While the manner of this type of injury is generally the same in most TBI cases, i.e. some form of trauma to the head, the resulting injuries vary widely among different plaintiffs. TBI injuries can manifest in a variety of ways, and can be debilitating. TBI victims may experience cognitive issues, behavioral changes, anxiety, depression, headaches and various other symptoms. They may be unable to return to work and require regular medical care for the remainder of their entire life. Prosecution of these cases typically requires a number of different medical expert witnesses, including neurologists, neuropsychologists, physiatrists and others who can diagnose and explain the nature and effect of a traumatic brain injury. The personal injury lawyers at the Reinartz Law Firm are experienced advocates for TBI victims and work tirelessly to help those affected by TBI obtain compensation for their injuries in Bergen County and throughout the State of New Jersey.
