Kearny Injury Law Firm Recovers Damages for Victims of Head Injuries

Knowledgeable legal team has skill, experience, and long track record of success

Suffering an injury to the head poses significant risk. Head injuries can result in permanent disability, mental impairment, or, in some cases, death. While head injuries are most commonly experienced in sports or other recreational activities, individuals may experience a head injury from a motor vehicle accident, pedestrian accident, or any activity that causes a blunt blow to the head. The knowledgeable injury lawyers at the New Jersey firm of Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC has more than 50 years combined experience and a track record of success recovering damages for victims of head injuries.

What is a head injury?

A head injury is an injury to the skull, scalp or brain caused by trauma. A concussion is a common type of brain injury ; this occurs when the brain is jolted or shaken hard enough to bounce against the skull. Concussions may be the result of two athletes colliding, an individual falling and hitting their head, or being struck in the head with a hard object. Concussions may also occur as a result of impact on another part of the body that creates enough force to jar the brain. The effects of a concussion can be immediate or may appear several hours or days later. Concussions can alter the normal functioning of the brain and may cause an alteration in an individual’s mental status. If an individual experiences multiple concussions, this can have a long-lasting, cumulative effect on the brain.

Types of head injuries

In addition to concussions, other types of head injuries include:

Hematomas: Bleeding in the brain that results in the formation of a blood clot

Contusions: A bruise on the brain that causes swelling of the brain

Skull fractures: A break in the skull that can cause bleeding

If you suffer a head injury, it is important to receive medical attention immediately. Undiagnosed injuries can cause long-term disability and impairment if they do not receive the proper care.
