4. What Is My Brain Injury Case Worth? 

No two brain injury cases are exactly the same. The specific amount of compensation you seek to recover will vary depending on the physical, cognitive, and emotional impacts of your injury. To secure your financial future, work with an attorney who has the experience and knowledge to ensure that all of your costs are actually considered, like: 

  • Medical bills
  • Future healthcare costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

5. What Evidence Do I Need to Pursue Compensation?

In order to hold the at-fault party responsible for your brain injury, you need to prove that person behaved negligently. A skilled attorney will gather the evidence to make that argument, which could include police reports, accident reconstructions, and expert witnesses who can testify about your injury. To help in that process, you should also gather some of the evidence yourself at the scene of the accident if possible, such as contact info for eyewitnesses and photos of the car wreck, the area where the accident happened, etc.  

6. How Much Time Do I Have to File My Lawsuit? 

In most circumstances, the state of Virginia gives you two years to file a lawsuit from the date of the injury. If you wait longer than that, your case will be dismissed. That’s why it’s crucial to act quickly by retaining legal counsel, as investigations take time and court processes aren’t always fast.
