Virginia Head Injury Attorney

     Head injuries can affect who we are and the way we think.  They can affect the way we act and feel and they can change everything about us.  Approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries every year.  Head injuries can have devastating consequences for victims and their families.  At The Meade Law Firm, we understand how these injuries can affect all aspects of your career and close relationships.

     Personal injury cases involving head injuries are very challenging.  Individuals who have sustained traumatic head injuries may look “normal” but do not feel or act normal.  Standard medical tests might not even show the injury.

     Traumatic head and brain injury cases frequently require special experts in order to prove and explain the complexity of this injury to judges, juries, and insurance companies. If you have heard your doctor use phrases like “closed head injury” or “post-concussion syndrome” to describe your medical condition, then you may have suffered a traumatic brain or head injury.

     A severe traumatic head and brain injury frequently involves skull fractures, subdural hematomas, brain hemorrhage, and amnesia.  Mild traumatic brain injuries are more difficult to recognize. The following symptoms may be associated with traumatic head and brain injuries:

  •  Seizures
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulties making decisions
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Balance difficulties
  • Impaired judgment
  • Memory loss
  • Altered sense of taste
  • Altered sense of smell
  • Depression
  • Personality changes
  • Reduced attention
  • Inability to concentrate
