New Brunswick Permanent Disability Attorney Identifies Common Causes and Injuries

For many of our clients, even extremely serious injuries are treatable and they can retain many of the same lifestyles they enjoyed before their accident. However, even with modern medicine, there are also some injuries which can lead to irreversible medical complications which can prevent individuals from ever returning to work. Common examples of injuries leading to permanent disability include:

  • Brain Injuries – concussions, blunt force trauma, and even long term exposure to hazardous chemicals can lead to permanent brain injury. Symptoms can include personality and/or mood changes, impaired cognitive function, difficulty speaking, and more
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – spinal cord and other central nervous system injuries are some of the least understood by modern medical science. Healthy spinal cord function plays a vital role in connection our brain and central nervous system to the rest of our body
  • Paralysis – tying back into spinal cord injuries, victims of paralysis may find themselves with limited treatment options. Some forms of paralysis are irreversible, and can lead to permanent loss of feeling or inability to control certain body parts or groups of body parts

In order to be successful with a personal injury claim, we must prove that your injurious accident was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party.

This can take many forms, and applies in different ways to our clients who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, and many more. Ultimately, our goal will be to seek a successful settlement or verdict for your claim, recovering damages for:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Incidental Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Physical Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Property Damage
  • Punitive Damages

Additional Considerations for Permanent Disability Claims in Somerset County

While our Somerset County attorney seeks maximum compensation for all his clients who have been injured in accidents, there are unique circumstances facing those with permanent disabilities. If you choose to secure our legal services, we will go over your individual needs and concerns and map out what exactly you and your family will need to be financially secure moving forward.

For example, permanent disabilities means no more income for that individual. A lifetime of lost wages is a devastating financial blow, and can be difficult to quantify in a court of law. With the correct legal approach, it is possible to recover compensation for not only previous and current lost wages, but for projected wages you or a loved one will be missing in the future.

Additionally, injuries which lead to permanent disability generally also require ongoing medical treatment and possibly other assistances as well. It is important to cover all bases, which may include rehabilitation services, pain management, in-home assistance, in-home alterations to accommodate disabilities, just to name a few.
