If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you are not alone. The New Jersey Department of Health estimates that somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000 New Jersey residents suffer brain injuries each year. The Levin & Malkin team may be able to help you get compensation for your injury, and tap into government benefits you are now eligible for.
The Compensation You Deserve
Brain injuries are increasingly common in today’s world. It is not that we are living more dangerous lifestyles, or are more prone to injury, the fact is the medical community has made great strides in identifying and diagnosing traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
It used to be that the only recognized brain injuries were paralysis or cognitive decline.
We now know that post-accident symptoms like chronic pain, fibromyalgia, depression, persistent headaches, IBS, and TMJ dysfunction can often be traced back to a TBI. This makes perfect sense when you consider the brain controls all other bodily functions.
If you suffered a TBI during an accident, you may be eligible for compensation. Our firm has the resources and affiliations to call upon respected neurologists, neurophysiologists, life care planners, vocational experts, and a host of credentialed professionals to bolster your case.
The money you receive can help you pay your existing medical bills, and predicted TBI-related expenses for the rest of your life. Typically, with large financial settlements, we can arrange for structured payments that can last a lifetime.
The TBI Fund
Approximately 175,000 New Jersey residents currently live with disabilities from traumatic brain injuries. The state has recognized the unique needs of this population and created a program to provide additional support to those with a TBI.
The TBI Fund provides New Jersey residents of any age, who have survived a traumatic brain injury, the opportunity to access the brain injury-related services and supports they need to live in the community. The Fund purchases, supports and services to foster independence and maximize quality of life when insurance, personal resources, and/or public programs are unavailable to meet those needs.
Fund recipients must:
- Provide medical documentation of brain injury
- Have liquid assets of less than $100,000
- Be a resident of New Jersey for at least 90 consecutive days
Our firm can help you prepare the documentation you need to apply for support from the TBI Fund.
