Filing a Brain Injury Case With a Virginia TBI Attorney 

If someone else’s negligence or intentional actions caused your injury, you may be able to file a brain injury case to seek damages. Other parties may have owed you a duty of care and they violated that duty of care. If so, a Virginia brain injury lawyer will investigate your case and determine if it’s possible to seek a fair settlement for damages. 

Consult with an attorney at The Mottley Law Firm right away to explore your legal options. In Virginia, the statute of limitations is two years for most personal injury cases. If you do not file your brain injury claim within that limit, you may forfeit your ability to seek damages from the parties responsible for your injury. 

Understanding the Short- and Long-Term Costs of Traumatic Brain Injuries

When exploring the possibility of filing a civil lawsuit, it’s crucial to be comprehensive when estimating all current and future damages. Covering the initial cost of purchasing assistive technology devices may seem pressing, but there are long-term consequences related to a traumatic brain injury. TBI victims may need ongoing medical care, therapy, and rehabilitation. They may also require future modifications to their home to improve accessibility. Brain injuries can affect a person’s ability to earn an income. These are all reasonable expenses and losses in a brain injury case.

Co-counseling with MartinWren, The Mottley Law Firm represented a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle driven by a Charlottesville City employee. His body was thrown 30 feet. Expert witnesses concluded future medical costs would be upwards of $3 million. After mediation, the client secured a $5 million settlement from the City of Charlottesville. 

You don’t have to struggle alone to build an independent life. Trust us to evaluate your needs and advocate for a fair settlement.
