NEW JERSEY PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS: NEW DATA CONCERNING TBI

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to reduce the incidence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) by raising public awareness and improving TBI treatment.  The CDC is utilizing data collected through the new Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) to improve TBI monitoring and identify population groups at risk for TBI.

According to the CDC, TBIs sustained in motorcycle crashes are three times more likely to be fatal than other TBIs.  People who play sports are also at risk.  Over a 12 year study, more than 3.4 million sports-related TBIs were treated in emergency rooms throughout the country.  New data also indicates that 60% of people who suffer TBI requiring inpatient treatment are still unable to work two years after they have been discharged.

TBI often has significant physical, financial, psychological, and social consequences for victims.  If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of another party’s negligence or misconduct, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.  Contact Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy online or call 732-777-0100 to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyer.  Our offices are located in Edison, Toms River and Red Bank, and we represent injured victims throughout New Jersey.
