Compensation to Counteract the Severe Effects of Head Injury Throughout Pennsylvania & New Jersey

Every 21 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a head injury. That is a staggering 1.5 million people per year, and the statistics are rising each day. A head injury may sometimes not manifest immediately, some cases have even been known to take a few days to manifest fatal or life-threatening effects. What characterizes a head injury is when an incident causes a blunt or sharp force on the head or brain, which is the most sensitive organ and the greatest complexity of structure than any other part of the body.

Needless to say, your brain and head should receive especially cautious care, since all bodily processes and functions are controlled and regulated from there. The effects could be anywhere from a total incapacitation to perform independently to minor loss of functionality like sensation to partial or complete loss of motor functions and eventual death from physiological damage sustained from a closed head injury or a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
