Injury Lawyers in Virginia Beach, Virginia
Over 1.5 million people have traumatic brain injuries each year, with 20% of these injuries coming in motor vehicle accidents. Representing individuals with brain injuries is different from other kinds of client contact because the injury is not always clearly visible from the outside. Symptoms include headaches often severe, and memory loss. Work is difficult and sometimes not possible at all. Insomnia, depression, and irritability are all common with TBI.

Helping Those Who Suffer from Traumatic Brain Injuries
I have been representing a young lady who received a concussion in a car crash two years ago. This case is pending in litigation right now. My work on that case led me to a board neurologist, who I interviewed recently on my radio show, Justice for All, on WHKT 1650 AM. I had never dug deep into the science behind concussions, also known as minor traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and as I did I realized that the science going on now is cutting edge. There is new research going on every day giving us more insight into the problems people experience when they injure their brain.
As a lawyer, I decided to educate myself so I could better represent my client. As a radio host, I needed to educate myself so I could interview Dr. Neil Pugach. And, as a football fan, I had to read the book, League of Denial. For more information on concussions and MTBI, I read the Clinical Practice Guideline put out by the Department of Defense for the VA Hospital System, Management of Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury. This is a 128 page protocol for treating military personal suffering from brain injuries.

I find it helpful to talk to my client’s family, friends, co-workers, teachers and other significant people in her life to establish a kind of baseline to judge how they have been impacted adversely by this injury. Not all brain injury clients have persistent problems and can go back to their normal activities after maybe 1 or 2 weeks. For others, it may be 3 or even 6 months. Then there are those cases where one blow to the head from a car or truck or motorcycle accident can produce a permanent brain injury with chronic and persistent headache and other long term partial or full disability.
Handling the legal claim of a head injury client requires specialized knowledge. I went out and got it. I educated myself. I read. I asked a lot of question. I read the research. I befriended doctors and experts to help me, so that I can help my clients.
