Teaneck, NJ – Traumatic brain injuries impact peoples’ lives yearly in New Jersey and across the US. The CDC reported 223,000 brain injuries in the recent year. Because of the high number of injury cases, Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. released an infographic with the symptoms, treatments, and long-term effects, to educate and empower clients/the public. Since its inception in 1981, the passionate personal injury lawyers at the New Jersey firm have delivered results to clients by pursuing insurance companies, large corporations, third-party suppliers, and individual parties.
Traumatic brain injuries result from violent blows/jolts to the head/body from an injury/accident. While mild injuries affect brain cells temporarily, more serious traumatic brain injuries can cause physical damage or long-term mental health issues. The personal injury firm’s infographic lists common symptoms of minor traumatic brain injuries. They include headaches, difficulty speaking, vertigo/dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, mood swings, confusion, and unusual sleeping patterns. Individuals with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries experience convulsions, toe/finger numbness, dilated pupils, poor coordination, and agitation. They may also lose consciousness for a while, have slurred speech, or notice clear fluid draining from their nose/ears.
Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. recommends a physician visit or emergency medical care when a client or a loved one notices unusual behavioral changes after an accident or receiving a blow to the head or body. Even though treating a traumatic brain injury is a significant challenge, the attorneys advise clients and families to adjust to their new life as they seek care. Medical physicians/doctors prescribe rest, therapy, counseling, surgery, and ongoing attention to improve symptoms, provide coping mechanisms, and receive emotional support.
The infographic quotes John Hopkins Medicine while detailing the long-term effects of traumatic brain injuries. Victims tend to experience shortened attention spans, memory problems, tremors, problem-solving difficulties, impaired judgment, and loss of space/time. The attorneys advise patients with tremors, taste/vision/smell changes, lost bowel/bladder control, depression, seizures, or difficulty speaking to seek medical guidance from a professional.

After suffering a traumatic brain injury, victims face costly medical expenses, mild/severe emotional trauma, missed time at work, and a decreased quality of life. If the injury is due to someone else’s negligence, they may file a lawsuit to recover their losses/damages. Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. takes the time to understand clients’ needs, answer their questions, and walk them through the personal injury law statutes. The attorneys give updates, maintain open lines of communication, offer moral support, and advocate for victim rights in/out of court.
Over the years, they have represented victims of automobile accidents, bicycle accidents, premises liability, workplace injuries, nursing home abuse, defective consumer products, and other personal injury incidents. The brain injury attorneys launch an independent investigation, work with physicians, calculate past/current/future damages, take over communication with insurance companies, and participate in negotiations.
