Richmond Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain injuries are some of the worst a person could sustain in an accident. When a person’s brain becomes injured, it has a permanent and lasting effect on the individual’s quality of life, as well as the lives of the victim’s loved ones. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is important to speak to a Richmond brain injury lawyer. An attorney can help you claim the compensation you need to recover your losses from these catastrophic injuries.

Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are usually caused by blunt force trauma to the head, such as by an object crashing into a person’s head. Penetration injuries can also occur, in which an object becomes lodged in a person’s skull or brain, piercing the bones or soft tissue. Regardless of the type of injury a person sustains, there are several potential causes of brain injuries, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Defective products
  • Dog bites

Regardless of the type of accident that caused the injury, a brain injury attorney in Richmond can help victims claim compensation from the negligent party.

Symptoms of a Brain Injury

Brain injuries are unique in that different people may exhibit different symptoms for the same type of injury. Some of the most common symptoms associated with brain injuries are as follows:

  • Loss of consciousness, even for just a few seconds
  • Confusion and disorientation, even when a person does not lose consciousness
  • A headache that increases in severity
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Extreme fatigue and drowsiness
  • Sleeping issues
  • Balance and coordination issues
  • Dilated pupils
  • Seizures and convulsions
  • Weak or numb fingers or toes
  • Fluids draining from the ears or nose, which are usually clear
  • Sensitivity to sound or light
  • Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears
  • Blurry vision
  • Sensory issues
  • Memory issues
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sudden changes in mood
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Slurred speech
  • Coma

In addition to the above symptoms, accident victims can also suffer long-term complications from a brain injury. These can include mobility issues, seizures, muscle spasticity, and communication issues.

Filing a Brain Injury Lawsuit

Due to the fact that brain injuries can greatly impair victims for years, and perhaps even the rest of their lives, victims may find it difficult to file a personal injury lawsuit and navigate the process. As such, an individual’s loved one can often file a brain injury lawsuit on the victim’s behalf, so that he or she can receive the full amount of compensation necessary. These cases are extremely complex, particularly because the victim is often unable to describe how the accident occurred. A brain injury attorney in Richmond can help loved ones determine who was liable for the accident, and will hold them liable for paying all damages incurred.
