Our Firm Investigates All Sources of Recovery for Brain Injury Victims
Any injury to the brain or head should be considered serious, as these injuries often involve long recoveries and can sometimes impact victims for life. At Forbes Law Firm, we’ve assisted head and brain injury victims throughout Hampton Roads for over 20 years, and we’ve accumulated quite a collection of experts and resources during that time. Therefore, our team has a unique ability to estimate long-term medical care and other expenses, a critical component in determining fair compensation following a brain or head injury. We also know how to investigate all potential sources of recovery, which may include bringing claims against more than one party, in order to recover the maximum possible amount to cover your damages. If you or a loved one have been left with a head or brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, Forbes Law Firm knows how to get you the compensation your injuries deserve.
Injuries With a Range of Symptoms and Outcomes
Victims of head and brain injuries can have symptoms that range from mild (such as headaches, temporary loss of consciousness, or blurred vision) to severe (such as convulsions, seizures, confusion/disorientation, or coma), and some of these injuries can even cause permanent physical damage to the brain. Even in severe cases that result in permanent disability and extreme incapacity, the full extent of the damages may not be immediately apparent following an injury. Diagnostic testing, surgery, medication, 24-hour patient care, and long-term rehabilitation expenses can be quite extensive – especially if the disability is permanent – which is exactly why you need experienced representation that you can count on to fight for you.
Common Causes of Head and Brain Injuries
Like their variety of symptoms, head and brain injuries have multiple potential causes as well. In addition to falls and sports injuries, some of the more common causes of these injuries include:
Car Accidents — Head-on collisions, rollovers, rear-end crashes, or any other type of car accident where the victim’s head receives a traumatic jolt or blow can result in severe brain injuries.
Motorcycle Accidents — Even wearing helmets, cyclists can suffer head injuries when they are ejected from their motorcycles after a car or truck hits them.
Medical Malpractice — Brain injuries, including those that occur during childbirth, can result from surgery or other medical procedures when the patient is deprived of oxygen.
Defective Products — The flawed design or manufacture of products – such as airbags that don’t deploy properly or bicycle helmets that crack on impact – can lead to serious head and brain injuries.
Violence, Explosions, or Combat Injuries — Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by a violent blow to the head during a fight or by a bullet, skull fragment, or other object that penetrates the brain.
