Getting Needed Help for Brain Injury Patients
A motor vehicle accident or other accidental injury is always a frightening circumstance, but when these accidents lead to brain injuries, the consequences can be particularly difficult to deal with.
At Michael N. Driscoll, P.C., we help people who are recovering from brain injuries pursue compensation for their losses. Located in Manassas across from the Prince William County courthouse, we help clients throughout Northern Virginia. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation about your brain injuries.
Using Experts to Document the Facts
Closed head injuries and other brain injuries are very delicate matters. Injuries may be subtle, may not show up on X-rays or MRI results, and may take time to show themselves. In addition to the costs of medical treatment, these injuries can include:
- Psychological problems
- Behavioral problems
- Memory problems
- Self-esteem issues
These injuries, in turn, can cause a decrease in earning ability and the ability to care for a family, as well as pain and suffering. We are skilled at working with doctors, economists and other expert witnesses who can assess our clients' brain injuries and develop an evidentiary record to support their claims.
An Understanding Approach
A brain injury can be a traumatic experience, affecting your ability to do things that used to come naturally to you. We understand that suffering through one of these injuries can be emotionally trying, and we are sensitive to that fact.
Personal injury lawyers are often portrayed in the media as aggressive, arrogant people. That is not our firm's approach. We know how to fight for people's rights, but there is a difference between forceful legal advocacy and behaving in an intimidating fashion toward clients. We will always treat you with respect and understanding.
