Leading Cause of Traumatic Brain Injury in Virginia
https://www.mottleylawfirm.com/ When people get into accidents, their heads are often impacted. Sadly, some people suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI) due to the negligent actions of others. Find out here what causes traumatic brain injuries in victims in Virginia.
There are a number of causes of traumatic brain injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls and slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of mild traumatic brain injuries in our nation followed by motor vehicle accidents. When force is exerted on the head or a person’s skull is shaken, penetrated, or hit by an object, a person can suffer a TBI in Virginia. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t compensate victims of mild traumatic brain injuries like they should, which is why victims should turn to a skilled injury attorney for help pursuing justice.
A Unique Focus On Traumatic Brain Injuries
My focus on representing TBI survivors is also unique. Most personal injury lawyers cast a very large net. They pursue, and will gladly accept, any case (large or small) that falls under the general “personal injury” heading. You can spot these practices by looking at their websites and clicking on the “practice areas” drop-down list. What you will see are many practice areas, only one of which will be “traumatic brain injury.” Think of these firms as the Wal-Mart Supercenters of the personal injury lawyer world. Wal-Mart has at least one of everything. The same can be said of most personal injury firms. They handle everything.
Nothing is wrong with such retail personal injury practices. My point is not to criticize that “generalist” approach to personal injury law. My point is simply to illustrate that my practice is different, just like a small nursery selling 20 different types of specialty garden hoses is different than a Wal-Mart selling one type of garden hose. Just like the nursery, I focus on one type of personal injury case – the traumatic brain injury case – and one type of client – the traumatic brain injury survivor.
