Traumatic Brain Injuries
One of the most devastating outcomes of a car, truck or motorcycle accident in Virginia is for one of the victims to suffer a head injury. In a traffic collision, head injuries are not uncommon — and can be quite serious — for several reasons.
Many drivers hit their head on the steering wheel in a car crash. If you are not wearing a seat belt, your body could be thrown around your vehicle, putting you at risk for head trauma. Even if you are properly buckled in your seat belt, the sudden impact of a crash can cause a traumatic brain injury.
At the Virginia Beach law firm of Bennett & Sharp, PLLC, our personal injury attorneys work hard to help get our clients the compensation they deserve after suffering a traumatic brain injury. Not only do our attorneys have decades of experience representing injured people throughout the Tidewater region, but attorney Kevin D. Sharp is a sought-after speaker and legal consultant on brain injury and spinal cord injury topics. Mr. Bennett and Mr. Sharp are also members of the Brain Injury Association of America and the Brain Injury Association of Virginia.
What Are Some Symptoms Of A Brain Injury?
People may experience brain injuries differently after an accident, but you might suffer from conditions such as:
