Traumatic brain injury may be the cause of your depression

Suffering a head injury in New Jersey can be as traumatic as it is expensive. According to Harvard University, trauma to the head can result in various forms of traumatic brain injuries. These include concussions, skull fractures, acute subdural hematoma and epidural hematoma. Some brain injuries can lead to blackouts, while others may even result in coma, death or lifelong disabilities.

CNN now posits that mild traumatic brain injury may also be an underlying contributor to mental health problems, such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. In some instances, this is not necessarily related to the actual injury, but how it came about. In the case of a motor vehicle crash, for instance, the person may have difficulty sleeping and may relive the moment of impact in their thoughts.

Are you about to experience a high asset gray divorce?

Divorce at a later age is happening with more frequency in New Jersey these days. And, by this time in your life, you may have acquired expensive properties and have a high net worth. If you are one of the many about to experience a “gray divorce,” you may be wondering how that affects the assets you have accumulated. 

Gray divorces often come with different considerations than those that involve younger couples. Divorce in your earlier years often comes with child custody agreements, mortgages and matters such as earning potential. According to Forbes, when people in the latter half of life divorce, future earnings may no longer be an issue, but the asset pool that needs to be dealt with may be much greater.  

Joint custody as a support for your child

As parents in New Jersey begin to go through the process of a divorce, they will have more to worry about than a couple who doesn't have children. Custody decisions are one of the primary concerns unique to parents. There are plenty of custody options, each with drawbacks and benefits that can differ depending on one's unique home situation.

One type of custody in particular - joint (or shared) custody - has recently been touted as being beneficial for children of divorce. FindLaw defines joint custody as an equal sharing of responsibility in raising one's child between both parents after a divorce. Because parents share responsibility and decision-making, a child is given a sturdier foundation upon which to regard the figures of authority in their life. Not only that, but they have a chance to strengthen bonds with both parents as opposed to primarily bonding with one.

Psychology Today explains some of the common signs of infidelity so you can gain clarity on your marital situation.

Will you lose all your wealth in a divorce?

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are finalizing their divorce details. According to USA Today, Bezos, who is the wealthiest person in the world, is parting with a fair amount of Amazon stock. The former couple both announced some of the divorce terms via Twitter.

MacKenzie will keep 25 percent of their Amazon stock, and she is giving him her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin. Blue Origin is Bezo’s space exploration company.

Falls can be highly injurious or fatal for older Americans

When it comes to falling down, most of us tend to think that such accidents are no big deal. Falls are part of the process small children go through when learning to walk. And as we mature, most falls seem more embarrassing than physically harmful.

But depending on the circumstances and the age of the victim, a fall can be debilitating or even deadly. That’s why it is critically important for businesses, property owners and even local governments to reduce the risks of falls on premises where the public regularly travels.
