The Virginia brain injury lawyers 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 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 the best medical experts to prove the full extent of their brain injuries.
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 Insurance companies spend fortunes on developing expert witnesses who rely on outdated arguments against brain injury victims.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 disrupt 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.
