Financial Recovery from Personal Injury

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of spousal consortium
  • Punitive damages
  • Interest and legal fees

Spinal Cord Injuries

Young man in wheelchair sits in middle of road, opposite direction from crowdThousands of spinal cord injuries occur each year in the United States. No matter the specific cause of your spinal cord injury, the impact on you and your family, both emotionally and financially, will be profound. Personal injury accidents account for over half of all new spinal cord injuries each year:

  • Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries—more than 35% of new spinal cord injuries each year are caused by car accidents.
  • Accidental falls are the second leading cause of spinal cord injuries with over 25% of new spinal cord injuries are caused by falls each year. Among the more mature population, falls are even more dangerous. For those over 65 years old, falls are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries.  
  • Errors and omissions during neck and back surgery are the cause of an alarming, though less frequent, number of spinal cord injuries and can give rise to a medical malpractice claim by the injured.
  • Construction site accidents are also known for causing debilitating spinal cord injuries.

The location and severity of the spinal cord trauma will determine the physical issues that a spinal cord injury victim will suffer. However, common problems associated with spinal cord injury include:

  • Paralysis
  • Weak limbs
  • Bowel and bladder dysfunction
  • Respiratory limitations
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Chronic pain
  • Emotional distress
  • Psychological trouble

The process of recovering from a spinal cord injury, adapting to new limitations and reclaiming as much quality of life as possible can be lengthy, grueling and certainly costly. Assistive devices, specialized treatment and therapy, home modifications and ongoing care will very likely be required, and all come at a hefty price tag.

If you are facing mounting medical bills and an uncertain future as a result of a serious spinal cord injury, the accident attorneys at Eisbrouch Marsh want to help. With over two decades of experience fighting for the rights of the injured, we have the resources necessary to properly value your claims, assemble evidence and advocate for the compensation you deserve.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Radiographic image for detecting brain injuryTraumatic brain injury (TBI) causes a significant number of deaths and permanent disabilities every year. Living with a traumatic brain injury often requires a lifetime of specialized care. The cost of hospital visits, tests, treatments, therapies, and loss of wages add up quickly and only add to the emotional stress of learning to live with a brain injury. At Eisbrouch Marsh, we are dedicated to helping brain injury victims recover the compensation they deserve when they are injured by the careless acts or omissions of others.

TBI results from a bump, blow, jolt or penetration to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can occur as a result of car accidents, construction accidents, sports games, surgical errors, and falls.

Quality of life can be severely affected by a traumatic brain injury and may include problems such as:

  • Weakness or numbness in fingers and/or toes
  • Loss of consciousness for several minutes to hours
  • Loss of coordination or vertigo and imbalance issues
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Dilated pupils
  • Profound confusion or memory loss
  • Persistent fogginess or dizziness
  • Pressure on the skull
  • Headaches
  • Attention deficit or difficulty concentrating
  • Speech or hearing impairment
  • Mood changes, such as anxiety and depression, agitation, combativeness, or other uncharacteristic behaviors

The limitations on daily living imposed by TBI can require unexpected expenses, such as:

  • Home modifications
  • Service coordination
  • Assistive technology
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Neuropsychological services
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapies

Every brain injury case is different and requires the help of dedicated legal counsel who have your best interests in mind. When your loved one has suffered a severe brain injury, you can turn to Eisbrouch Marsh for the legal help you need.

Burn Injuries

Burn injury statistics in AmericaMillions of Americans suffer burn injuries each year. These injuries can cause severe pain, disfigurement, and death in some cases. Burn injury victims often require costly long-term medical treatment.

Burn injuries can happen at home, at work, or even on vacation. No matter where the burn occurs, living with a burn injury can affect everything from your ability to work to your ability to intimately connect with others.

Common types of burn injuries include:

  • Electrical burns sustained when an electrical current runs through the body. This can damage muscles, tissues, and nerves, and may lead to very severe injuries if the shock causes a fall or leads to heartbeat irregularities.
  • Chemical burns occur at home, school, or work from exposure to strong acids and bases, such as battery acid, chlorine, bleach, or metal cleaning solutions.
  • Thermal burns result from close contact with heated substances, such as steam, boiling water, hot cooking oil, or fire.

Burns range from mild to severe and are generally categorized as first to third degree burns. First degree burns are the mildest and result in damage to the top layer of skin. Second degree burns damage the top two layers of skin and usually cause blisters. Third degree burns are the most severe. They penetrate the deepest layers of skin and can cause charring and numbness.

The more severe the burn, the more long-term effects you will experience. Whether you were burned in a car accident or from a defective product, the experienced lawyers at Eisbrouch Marsh can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Amputation is a traumatic experience for any accident victim to undergo. Because of someone else’s carelessness, you are left feeling less than whole and learning to live life again with limitations on your physical abilities.

Catastrophic accidents that can cause the need for amputation include:

Although no amount of compensation can restore your limbs, your legal case can help you find justice and a monetary award to help you cover all of the unexpected expenses that come with an amputation.

Amputation usually requires prolonged rehabilitation. Mounting medical bills and time away from work will add to the stress of your injury. When you choose Eisbrouch Marsh for your legal representation, we can help alleviate that stress. You’ll know that your case is in very capable legal hands, and we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.

Broken Bones

From slip and fall accidents to commercial vehicle crashes, broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained in accidents. These injuries can range from mild to severe fractures that require lengthy medical stays and rehabilitative care.

Common types of bone fractures include:

  • Compound fractures: a full break of the bone with separation of the bone fragments.
  • Closed fractures: the bone snaps without opening a wound in the skin.
  • Open fractures: the bone breaks and punctures through the skin.
  • Greenstick fractures: the bone bends and then breaks, usually occurring in children whose bones are more flexible.
  • Linear fractures: parallel cracks down the bone. These are common leg and arm fractures. They can be quite painful and ache long after healing.
  • Impacted fractures: the ends of bones crack as they are driven into each other. This type of fracture is common in high impact accidents and is sometimes called a buckle fracture.

If you have suffered a severe fracture because of someone else’s negligent acts or omissions, turn to Eisbrouch Marsh for help with your legal case.

Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bite attacks can result in serious injuries to arms, legs, vital organs, the spinal cord, the brain, and the face. These severe injuries often occur in children, who are sadly the most susceptible to dog bite attacks.

In New Jersey, the owner of the dog is usually legally responsible for the attack. Your legal case against the dog owner and their insurance can help you recover the monetary award you need to pay for the costs of medical and rehabilitative care.
