Richmond Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

The brain is one of the most important organs in the body, and when it is injured or damaged, it can cause serious impairments that last a lifetime. There really is no such thing as a minor traumatic brain injury, even when the accident victim is able to function normally at some point after the accident that caused it. If you or a loved one has suffered this type of serious injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, a Richmond traumatic brain injury lawyer can review your case and help you recover the damages you deserve.

How Do Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers Happen?

Traumatic brain injuries are just that. They are traumatic, and a person may suffer the consequences of one for weeks, months, and even years later. Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries are also much more common than people think. The main causes of this type of catastrophic injury are as follows:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Premises liability accidents, including slip and falls
  • Defective products
  • Electrocutions
  • Acts of violence, including sexual assault
  • Train accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Nursing home abuse and elder abuse
  • Bus accidents
  • Construction accidents

The above accidents are usually the result of someone else’s negligence, or carelessness. Any time someone sustains this type of serious injury, it is important to speak to a traumatic brain injury lawyer in Richmond who can help them obtain the damages they need for their recovery.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are many different types of traumatic brain injuries a person may suffer after an accident. The most common of these include:

  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Skull fractures
  • Hemorrhage
  • Lesions
  • Hematomas
  • Coup and contra coupe injuries
  • Diffuse axonal injuries
  • Anoxic brain injuries
  • Penetrating brain injuries

Regardless of the type of traumatic brain injury a person sustains, they are all very serious and will likely negatively impact an accident victim’s life for a long time to come.

How to Detect a Traumatic Brain Injury

Some types of injuries after an accident are quite obvious. For example, when someone breaks a leg during an accident, they know it right away. The same is not always true with a traumatic brain injury. While symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and loss of consciousness are sometimes present after an accident, injured individuals do not always attribute it to a traumatic brain injury.

All accident victims should always see a doctor as soon as possible after any accident. A doctor will know the signs to look for to detect a traumatic brain injury as soon as possible. This is of great importance to a personal injury claim because when someone does not see a doctor after an accident, the insurance company will argue they were not injured because they did not seek help. The insurance company is more likely to be successful with this argument when symptoms do not appear until days or weeks following the accident and the victim has not yet seen a doctor or filed their claim.
