Traumatic Brain Injury Defense

Virginia Attorneys Represent Defendants in Traumatic Brain Injury Claims

Skilled personal injury lawyers defend clients in TBI cases in the area

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from any jolt or blow to the head, causing a penetrating or concussive injury that damages the brain and disrupts its normal function. TBIs can occur in any accident where the head contacts a moving or stationary object, such as a fall, or a violent force, such as a car accident or explosion. If you’ve been charged with negligence in causing a TBI, you need strong legal counsel that can counter the claim. The personal injury defense attorneys at Britt, Byrne & Warren are familiar with the medical and legal issues involved in TBI cases and present a strong defense to negligence claims in the area and throughout Richmond, VA.

Proven advocates defend individuals and companies facing TBI claims

In most cases, an injured person needs to prove that you or your business was negligent in order to hold you responsible for their injuries. This means you must have had some sort of duty to act with care toward the person making the claim. That person must prove that you breached this duty, and that their injuries were a foreseeable result of that breach. They must demonstrate that the breach actually led to their injuries. Additionally, they must present evidence of their damages, which may include economic and noneconomic losses due to the injury. Head injury victims often try to recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning potential
  • Physical therapy
  • Home care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Our Virginia attorneys will act to dispute each element of the case against you. We will work to prove that you did not cause the injury or that you cannot be held responsible, because you or your business did not have proper notice of the danger that caused the injury. With the help of medical experts, we seek to present alternative evidence of the extent of the plaintiff’s injury. We also consult financial experts to refute the claimant’s alleged economic losses, especially projections of lost income over time. A judgment in favor of a traumatic brain injury plaintiff could easily exceed your insurance coverage, threatening your business or personal finances. We make every effort to limit your liability through a favorable settlement but will not hesitate to take your case to trial when necessary. We are committed to protecting you and your assets.
