Traumatic Brain Injuries Attorneys in Richmond & Tappahannock, VA

One of the most devastating consequences of an accident is a traumatic brain injury. Anytime a person sustains a sudden, violent blow to the head, they may quickly start to exhibit symptoms of a traumatic brain injury. Yet there are many cases where symptoms may take several days or weeks to manifest themselves.

The unpredictable nature of traumatic brain injuries is just one factor that can make them difficult to diagnose and treat. But one thing is for certain. If you suffer such an injury as the result of someone else’s negligent or reckless conduct, you have the right to seek legal compensation. A qualified Richmond traumatic brain injuries lawyer can advise you further. At Wind Law, LLC, attorney Ryan Wind has helped many accident victims successfully recover compensation for their traumatic brain injuries, providing them with a measure of financial security as they seek to recover and rebuild their lives.

How Traumatic Brain Injuries Affect an Accident Victim

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can vary in severity. Many accident victims are diagnosed with mild or moderate injury, which is often described as a “concussion.” But any brain injury is serious and requires immediate medical attention.

The difficulty is that following a traumatic event, such as a car accident, a person may “feel fine” and walk away. It is only in the following hours, days, or even weeks that they start to experience unusual symptoms. And the symptoms can vary wildly from person to person.

Some of the more common symptoms of a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury include:

  • headaches;
  • drowsiness and fatigue;
  • nausea and vomiting;
  • problems with speaking;
  • sensory issues, such as blurred vision or ringing in the ears;
  • sudden sensitivity to light or sound;
  • difficulty with concentration or remembering things;
  • sleeping problems–either difficulty falling asleep or sleeping more than usual.

In the case of more severe traumatic brain injuries, a person may lose consciousness for several minutes following an accident. And in addition to the symptoms listed above, they may also experience more pronounced physical and mental signs of injury, such as seizures, loss of coordination, and sudden changes in behavior.

It is critical to seek medical attention if you have any reason to suspect a traumatic brain injury. You should also consult with a qualified traumatic brain injuries attorney if your accident may have been the result of negligence. Indeed, TBIs are often the consequence of a preventable accident.

Compensation for traumatic brain injuries is often substantial due to the need for long-term medical care and rehabilitation in these cases. With a moderate to severe TBI, an accident victim may suffer a permanent impairment that affects their ability to work and live a normal life. A personal injury settlement can and should take that into account.
