If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury as the result of the negligent actions of another party, you are facing a legal problem that needs a favorable resolution. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) often leads to permanent disabilities with impacts that are physical, emotional, and mental. 

The injured person may require a lifetime of medical care or a long and challenging journey to restore the ability to walk, talk, or earn a living. The cost of medical treatments and rehabilitation, or the need for long-term care in a facility or managed by a family member at home, is a crushing financial burden. At Rodriguez Law Firm in Fairfax, we take on these cases with dedication and determination to achieve a settlement or jury verdict that is fair and just.

Common causes of brain injuries in Fairfax, VA

Brain injuries can occur when another party fails to exercise a reasonable level of care in various scenarios:

  • Car accident
  • Bicycle accident
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Pedestrian accident
  • Truck accident
  • Trip or slip and fall
  • Sports accident
  • Gas or chemical explosions

When another party is responsible for the injuries, a personal injury claim or lawsuit can be filed to seek to recover compensation for all damages. 

What damages can be pursued in a brain injury case?

Every brain injury is unique in the long-term consequences to the victim. The amount of compensation that can be pursued will reflect the long-term impact on the injured person. The types of compensation sought in a personal injury case include:

  • Economic damages: These are the expenses incurred by the injured person that are the result of the accident. They include medical costs, hospital costs, ambulance costs, lost wages, lost earning capacity, costs of skilled nursing, home refits to accommodate a wheelchair, bed, or other needed equipment, medications, and other hard costs.
  • Punitive damages: Under Virginia statute 8.01-38.1, some cases of gross negligence will allow for punitive damages, intended to punish the responsible party, to be pursued as part of the claim. The amount paid in punitive damages is capped by law at $350,000.
  • Non-economic damages: These damages are more personal and reflect the emotional anguish and pain and suffering the victim experiences due to a brain injury.
