Brain injuries can be responsible for some of the most serious lasting effects in accident injuries. If you or someone you love suffered a brain injury that had traumatic repercussions and it was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to hold them responsible for your injuries and recover damages for the costs of your recovery.
A Burlington County traumatic brain injury lawyer could help determine what types of recovery may be available to you after an examination of the specific circumstances leading to your injury and help you pursue the legal remedies you are entitled to. An experienced catastrophic injury attorney will best be able to build your case.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused in a number of different ways, such as the result of a car or motorcycle accident. A well-known form of traumatic brain injury is a concussion, which may have serious lasting effects on every aspect of a person’s life.
It can be difficult to assess a person’s damages in a TBI case, as the injury is often unnoticeable. Someone may look fine, but that injury is causing them serious pain. When assessing damages, experienced attorneys in Burlington County may hire experts to determine the exact economic loss of their severe head trauma and the recovery. If someone is out of work because of their injury, an attorney can hire an economic expert to determine what that amount of lost wages — past, present, and future — is going to be.
Then, attorneys also deal with non-economic damages. When taking consideration of these damages, attorneys will look for loss of enjoyment of life, the impact that this may have on their family, their children, and their friends. Experienced attorneys will work diligently to assign damages utilizing their experience, resources, and past results to try to determine true impact of a traumatic brain injury.
The most common types of damages from TBIs are the economic losses such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering and a lasting emotional and financial impact on someone’s life. Someone can have difficulty concentrating, sleeping, or with their job, which could result in lost wages, stress, and being unable to do things with their family and their loved ones as they once did.
Experienced Burlington County traumatic brain injury attorneys know that more research is being done always for these types of injuries, and they are finding out more about head injuries, and are understanding how serious they can be not only in the present but also in how they can affect people into the future.
Whenever attorneys see the potential for a traumatic brain injury case, they make sure right away that their client is seeing good doctors, that they are getting to experts in the fields of head injuries and concussions. They know to make sure that their client is getting the proper care for their injury. If so, they can expect going forward that their attorneys are doing everything they can to make things easier as they go forward.
A skilled Burlington County attorney begins working on a traumatic brain injury case almost immediately. A lot of times, when dealing with TBI cases, the person who is affected and who has been injured is out of work, so their lost wages and medical bills will start to accrue. A lawyer can get involved early to not only make sure that investigations are being done, but also by making sure that the injured person is getting the treatment they need, the medical bills are being paid properly, any lost wages are being calculated, and obtaining short-term disability if it is available.
During the initial consultation, a TBI attorney at our firm will determine early how the accident occurred, what the initial pain is, what the initial problems are, and other details about the individual, such as their family, work life, and prior medical history. This allows our team to understand the impact that the traumatic brain injury is having on them and the impact it could have on them going forward, giving them what they need to start building a strong case.
The attorney-client relationship over the course of a TBI case varies on an individual basis. At times, attorneys will be an investigator for their client in investigating the causes and happenings of the accident, who was at fault, and how that has impacted their life.
Attorneys can also help make sure your recovery is going smoothly and become an advocate for you to make sure you are being compensated for not only the past, the present, but also for the future losses expected to result from severe head trauma. Call today to learn more.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!

This was my first time ever having to have a lawyer for an automobile accident. From the beginning they took care of everything. They put me at ease so I could concentrate on my medical needs. Everyone I spoke to during the process were always extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.
Thank you to Grungo Colarulo for representing me and getting the settlement you did to help me move forward. I would highly recommend Grungo Colarulo to anyone who wants outstanding legal representation.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
