Virginia Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Virginia Brain Injury Lawyer

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Richard Serpe have represented victims of brain injuries across the state of Virginia, and have assisted lawyers in many other states representing brain injury and other personal injury clients. Whether a person has suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or a catastrophic injury, the results are devastating, and the victim’s life is never the same. Brain injuries can be caused by closed head injuries, penetrating trauma, and exposure to toxic chemicals. We are prepared to immediately investigate the cause of our clients’ brain injury, and work with medical experts to prove the extent of their brain injuries.

An “Invisible” Injury

One of the greatest challenges facing brain injury victims is the “invisible” nature of their injury. It is not unusual for a victim with significant brain damage to have has a “normal” MRI or CAT scan. Insurance companies spend fortunes on developing expert witnesses who rely on outdated arguments against brain injury victims. For example, insurance companies continually argue that unless a person has been in a coma, or had an extended loss of consciousness, it is impossible for them to have suffered a brain injury. Tragically, brain injury victims frequently lose very intellectual skills and executive functions that would enable them to understand the nature of their injury. Some patients may not become aware of or admit, the extent of their symptoms until they attempt to return to normal functioning. In short, brain injury victims face an uphill battle while carrying a heavy burden.

Brain injuries don’t just hurt the victim they affect the lives of their coworkers, friends, and most importantly family.

Spouses, parents, siblings, and children frequently have to deal with the emotional trauma of an injury to a loved one as well as the greater demands that are placed upon their time, energy, and strength. Even the simplest aspects of a person’s life are disrupted and can become great challenges. There is also a growing body of knowledge that the elderly and children are particularly vulnerable to greater long-term effects and a poorer prognosis from brain injury.

How Our Virginia Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help You

We know the procedures and testing which can be utilized to level the playing field for our clients. Using testing and diagnostic procedures, we have been able to demonstrate repeatedly the significant impairment suffered by our clients and memory, intellectual function, and behavior.

Time Deadlines for Brain Injury Cases

Under Virginia law, it is necessary to file a lawsuit within strict deadlines imposed by law. In many cases, Virginia provides for a two-year deadline also known as a Statute of Limitations. However, special circumstances may apply depending on the situation. Once you have missed this deadline, you will no longer be able to file a claim.

Finding the Best Lawyer for Your Brain Injury Case

In order to succeed in a claim for brain injury, our lawyers understand the legal rights of our clients in the most effective claims to bring on their behalf. Failing to hire an experienced brain injury lawyer right away can be a big mistake. There are important steps which can be taken together with crucial evidence concerning both legal rights and the nature and extent of brain injury. Without this evidence, success on the case can be made difficult or impossible. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your case with us.
