In the unfortunate event of an accident, we all hope that we can walk away from the incident with little to no injuries. But this is considered to be a rare event because in most automobile collisions, victims suffer some form of injury, even if it is not immediately apparent. One injury that might take time to develop or show signs of is a brain injury. While one would think any trauma to such a vital organ would be visible immediately, the most challenging aspect of a brain injury is the fact that it could take hours, days and even weeks to show clear signs of an injury.
A brain injury, even in a minor form, can be life altering. A victim could endure cognitive change, making it difficult to return to his or her normal life. At Crandall & Katt, Attorneys at Law, our experienced lawyers understand the challenges and difficulties a brain injury can present accident victims. Thus, we are dedicated to helping Virginia residents understand their rights and options following a serious accident.
Brain trauma can require much medical attention. Immediately following an accident, tests are usually conducted to assess the severity of the injury and if any damage has resulted. Based on the doctor’s findings, a brain injury victim might require specific treatment and even surgery. Even with medical intervention, victims might require ongoing treatment. Additionally, treatment may only reduce the impact of certain symptoms; therefore, a victim may be living with temporary or permanent disabilities.
Our law firm understands that living with a brain injury can present many obstacles. It can also make it difficult to live a normal life, impacting a victim’s quality of life. Therefore, we are prepared to collect documentation that will help prove that our clients are suffering losses and damages from a brain injury caused in an accident. With medical documents, investigation results, witness accounts and expert testimony, our goal is to prove that a negligent party is at fault. This can help victims recover compensation that can be vital and necessary in these matters.
