Frequently Asked Questions

Our Virginia brain injury law firm sees brain damage/brain injury cases arising from a variety of circumstances:

Car and truck accident cases causing concussion or brain damage;

Slip, trip, or fall injuries causing head or brain injury;

Heavy item fell,  and hits head, causing closed head injury or traumatic brain injury;

Motorcycle, boat, Jet Ski accident causing closed head injury or brain injury;

Medical malpractice (Including anesthesiology errors) involving loss of oxygen to the brain;


Handling brain injury lawsuits in court requires that your personal injury lawyers be familiar with brain MRI’s, CT scans, fMRI, PET scans and the various radiology, and how to present this evidence during a personal injury jury trial, whether in Virginia or elsewhere.  How the evidence of permanent brain injury, concussion or closed head injuries is visually presented, for a mediation, a settlement conference, or to a jury is hugely important.  Also, organizing the medical and rehabilitation professionals for deposition or court appearances requires careful development.  Our injury lawyers have experience in this field, and though every case presents new challenges, having experience on your side is invaluable.
