Decades of Experience Representing TBI Victims

Regardless of the type or severity of the injury, a brain injury is always a catastrophic event. Brain injuries can result in immense physical pain, cognitive disabilities, and permanent behavioral changes. The secondary emotional effects on the victim’s family can be equally devastating.

While nothing can undo the trauma associated with a brain injury, victims may be entitled to financial compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages. However, actually recovering compensation is not simple. Victims must prove that another person or party was negligent or otherwise responsible for the injury in order to successfully recover damages. As such, brain injury victims require legal representation from a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer.

The award-winning Vienna brain injury attorneys at Portner & Shure, P.A. have been successfully advocating for brain injury victims throughout Northern Virginia for over 30 years. We have received numerous awards and five-star reviews for our commitment to our clients and our legacy of success.

Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries often occur due to a catastrophic incident such as an automobile collision or a severe fall. Depending on the severity of the underlying incident, a brain injury may be mild or severe. However, while some brain injuries are less serious than others, all brain injuries or suspected brain injuries should be treated as serious. Anyone who may have sustained a brain injury should seek medical attention.

Common symptoms of brain injuries include:

  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Migraine headaches
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Blurred vision
  • Behavioral changes
  • Memory loss
  • Impaired decision making
  • Seizures

If you or anyone else exhibits any signs of a brain injury, seek immediate emergency medical attention.

Brain Injury Treatment

In order to increase the chances of recovery, an individual with a suspected brain injury should receive immediate medical attention. Most brain injuries are mild and only require minimal care, but severe injuries often require emergency medical care and surgery. Additionally, the cognitive and physical effects of a brain injury often require occupational therapy, speech therapy, and neuropsychology.

Effects of a Brain Injury

A brain injury can result in several physical and cognitive effects such as:

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness and difficulties with balance
  • Speech issues
  • Sleeping issues
  • Memory loss
  • Impaired decision making
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Coma

The financial cost of a brain injury can also be economically devastating. The cost of medical care and treatment for the permanent effects of a brain injury can be exorbitant. Additionally, many brain injury victims are unable to resume working, which results in severely diminished earning capacity and additional financial hardships.

How Our Brain Injury Lawyers Can Help

A brain injury can leave victims and their families dealing with unimaginable losses, both financial and emotional in nature. Victims deserve justice and fair compensation for these losses. A Vienna brain injury lawyer can work with you in order to build a successful personal injury case. Attempting to navigate this process on your own can be challenging, as the facts surrounding a brain injury are often complex and require extensive investigation. Along with this, brain injury victims often need extensive medical treatment, including ongoing care. Determining the true value of a brain injury case, therefore, can be complicated.

A brain injury lawyer can investigate the facts surrounding the injury in order to identify the negligent individual. An attorney can also work with the brain injury victim and their family in order to properly quantify their damages and identify their future medical needs.

Under Virginia law, you are allowed to pursue both economic and non-economic damages, meaning you can seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, lost future earnings, disability, and future medical costs, as well as for your pain and suffering, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life.
