A Serious Brain Injury Requires A Brain Injury Attorney With The Experience And Reputation You Can Count On!
Each year it is estimated that 1.7 million individuals suffer from traumatic brain injury. It accounts for thirty percent of the total number of deaths caused by injury annually. Traumatic brain injuries are also termed intracranial injuries because they involve significant fluctuations in cerebral fluid and internal skull pressure.
Brain functions can be impaired due to external forces such as acceleration, deceleration, sudden impact, penetration of a projectile or blast waves. Sometimes the damage to the brain cannot immediately be fully assessed due to lack of diagnostic equipment or simply because the full effects and symptoms occur in an insidious manner and take time to fully manifest.
Contact NJ personal injury lawyer Edward C. Lutz today to discuss your claim.
One who experiences these symptoms but has also experienced worsening headaches, feels nauseous, has an increased loss of coordination and becomes easily restless may be dealing with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury. In the most severe cases one may have issues waking from sleep, seizures, numbness in the limbs, dilated pupils, extreme confusion and trouble speaking clearly.
These problems may be temporary, but if the injury is serious enough it may result in long-term disabilities. Processing speed and inability to judge social situations may inhibit the individual from living a normal life especially in areas such as the pursuit of a career or even driving a car. There is hope for some injuries in the area of rehabilitation, but this can cost time and money. If you or a loved one has fallen victim to a brain injury due to another’s negligence, please do not wait to contact our firm so that you may obtain optimal financial compensation for your loss, suffering and medical bills.
Understanding the Severity
There are varying degrees of seriousness when looking at brain injuries depending on different factors. The severity of injury depends on the portion of the brain that was affected and whether or not there was a loss of consciousness.
When experiencing a minor injury, the symptoms may often include:
- Lack of concentration and attention span
- Dizziness and lightheadedness
- Blurred vision and strained eyes
- Ringing in the ears
- Strange or unpleasant sense of taste
- Mood swings or attitude changes
- Inability to sleep or abnormal sleep patterns
- Problems remembering
Most Common Causes
With millions of auto accidents every year on American highways, it is no surprise that vehicular incidents, after slips and falls, are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury. The tremendous forces unleashed when two vehicles collide, can cause the drivers’ heads to strike any number of hard surfaces including the steering wheel or the window. Even impacting the airbag can cause damage. For pedestrians or bicyclists, their unprotected bodies hardly stand a chance against a car or commercial truck weighing thousands of pounds. The driver at fault may permanently damage the victim’s spine and brain, even at low impact speeds.
Unfortunately, brain trauma or oxygen deprivation can also occur during childbirth, sometimes as a direct result of negligence on the part of medical staff. Lack of oxygen or a major decrease in the child’s blood flow to the brain can cause hemorrhage within the internal tissue. Continued lack of oxygen to the brain may result in learning disabilities for the child and decreased motor skills. In severe cases, even death may result.
Attorney Edward Lutz has experience in handling claims against medical professionals in this area. Achieving one of the highest amounts of financial compensation in his time as a personal injury attorney, Mr. Lutz represented a case involving brain damage from birth trauma, resulting in a $26,345,000 structured settlement.

Had a great experience with Edward lutz I was nervous about having to get a lawyer. Ed took the stressfulness out of that. He was very knowledgeable and keep me posted thought the case. He is a very genuine guy ! He also have a wonderful secretary Kathy who is always Friendly and helpful whenever I called or came in. I would highly recommend Edward lutz for your legal needs.
I have never been in an accident before and was very overwhelmed to say the least during the initial stages of this proces. Not only was it my first accident, but it included a personal injury as well. Mr. Lutz was someone who believed in me, walked me through every step of the way, and always answered my questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed. The end result to my case was very positive thanks to Mr. Lutz and his expertise. - Susan Gallico
As a lawyer, Mr.Lutz will put in the time needed! He was very patient, he will be committed to you as his client and he makes sure he’s committed to your case. Very great guy! He brings great energy and is very hard working. He also has a great team who makes you feel welcomed and comforted. - Patient - Educated - Very Resourceful
Him & His Staff Are Amazing. He Helped Me When I Was Injured. He Got Me The Money I Needed To Compensate Me With My Medical Bills. Also He’s Not You Average Attorney He Was More Like My Friiend. I Would Recomded Him To Anyone.
I was involved in a bad accident on my way to a jobsite. I was hit by a tractor trailer which resulted in several really serious painful injuries. I decided to take legal actions. I chose to hire Ed Lutz after carefully calling and emailing various personal injury lawyers. I am very happy I hired him. He truly cares about his clients and the case at hand. I called his office and believe it or not he actually answered the phone! He was pleasant to deal with and he was very professional. Now I have had some prior experiences with typical (I’ll never call you back) type lawyers. Ed Lutz is not one of them. You call his office and Kathy the secretary either gets him or he calls back usually that day. Kathy is also very pleasant to deal with on the phone and she couldn’t be nicer to deal with in person. Mr. Lutz handles the case from the very beginning to the very end. He knows the ins and outs of every detail of the case. He is extremely knowledgeable about the whole legal process and he will let you know about the different issues that may come up. His experts are also very good at what they do and the whole process couldn't have gone any smoother. Mr. Lutz got me a very large award and I cannot stress how important it is too find such a great lawyer such as Mr. Lutz. I would, without any hesitation, recommend him to handle your personal injury case.
