New Jersey Brain Injury Attorneys

What Is a Brain Injury?

Each year, tens of thousands of New Jersey residents are involved in accidents or suffer the effects of negligent medical treatment that leads to permanent brain injury. Accidents may occur at work, on our roadways and pedestrian avenues, and in our homes.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may result from direct or indirect trauma to the head/brain. Direct impact of the head, such as suffered in a fall or a motor vehicle accident, can result in such injuries. Forces applied to the body, such as in a whiplash scenario, or the force of an explosion may result in a jarring of the head causing the brain to, for lack of a better term, “be thrown about” in the skull cavity, causing injury to the brain.

Brain injuries may also occur because of deficient surgical, anesthesia or medical treatment and medication errors. They may result from failures to properly treat infections, clotting disorders and or the risk factors associated with stroke (including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes etc.). Brain damage in a newborn may have resulted from a failure to recognize the signs and symptoms of fetal compromise during labor and delivery, and treat accordingly (possibly by timely cesarean section delivery of the child or administration of medications to the mother). Those obstetric failures may result in a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain, causing a brain injury.


There are many types and degrees of brain injury. Symptoms vary and can manifest in a myriad of conditions from cognitive loss (inability to process and express information) to severe neurological dysfunction which may affect fine and gross motor functioning of muscles.

Since 1929, Blume Forte Fried Zerres & Molinari has assisted thousands of injured New Jersey residents in securing compensation for their injuries. Some examples include:

After a three-month-long trial, our law firm helped a grieving family secure a $7.346 million verdict in a construction accident and medical malpractice case. While at a worksite, a ladder hit the deceased on the head. After being transported to a nearby hospital, an attending physician failed to intubate him in a timely manner, resulting in an anoxic brain injury (lack of oxygen to the brain). The injured gentleman became a quadriplegic and succumbed to his injuries three years later.

In another case, our law firm helped a plaintiff negotiate a $5 million settlement in a car accident lawsuit. Following a car accident involving a delivery van, the plaintiff sustained serious injuries and underwent surgery. While at the hospital, his brain was deprived of oxygen and he sustained a preventable brain injury.

In one of many other brain injury claims, our law firm obtained a $8 million settlement for a young boy who was misdiagnosed by a doctor as an infant. The doctor negligently diagnosed the child with an ear infection, when in fact he had meningitis. This brain injury caused cerebral palsy, and the boy is not able to walk, talk or function without assistance in all aspects of daily activity.
