Few things are more chilling than finding out that you or someone you love is suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Brain Injury Association of America, of the 1.4 million who sustain a TBI each year in the United States 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized, and 1.1 million are treated and released from an emergency department such as Chesapeake General Hospital. Sometimes a brain injury is easy for doctors to diagnose, other times diagnosis eludes medical professionals, even though peninsula patients and their families know something is wrong.

How A Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You

If someone else caused your injury, or your loved one’s, their insurance company may have to pay you for the costs of your injury. If it’s shown they are responsible, they may have to cover not only medical and rehab needs, but any lost wages, and other consequences from the accident. Some insurance companies will pressure you into settling early, and for a lower amount than you deserve. It’s in your interest to contact an attorney who specializes in brain injury accidents.

Experienced lawyers will have access to medical professionals who can be sure you get the proper testing, evaluations, and treatment plans that you need.
