Head injuries suffered in car accidents can be unpredictable

The true extent of a head injury may not be known in the immediate aftermath of such an injury. Those who suffer head injuries in car accidents and their families may not know the full extent of the damage for some time. The hope is that a victim will make a full recovery, but sadly, that is not always the case.

One New Jersey man is wondering whether his wife will make a full recovery after she was struck by a car. At last report, he was not even sure that his wife recognized him, and she may have memory issues as a result of her head injury. The good news is that she is now breathing on her own and is considered to be in fair condition.

The 60-year-old woman was acting as a crossing guard for a synagogue when she was struck by a car operated by a 63-year-old man. There is speculation that sun glare may have played a part in the accident. Nevertheless, police cited the man for failing to obey a crossing guard, failing to yield to a pedestrian and careless driving. The investigation remains ongoing.

Only time will tell what permanent damage, if any, the woman will suffer. In the meantime, she and her husband are undoubtedly incurring a significant amount of medical expenses, among other damages. Apart from any workers' compensation coverage that may be available to her, a personal injury claim seeking restitution for financial damages may be filed in a New Jersey civil court. If negligence is established through applicable evidence, an award of damages could be ordered that will help the couple with the financial impact that often accompanies these types of car accidents.
