The Silent Injury

Brain injuries are devastating, life-changing and often not obvious to the casual observer. That is why traumatic brain injuries are sometimes described as “invisible injuries” and a “silent epidemic.”

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you understand the devastating emotional and financial impact it can have on a family. In some cases, a recovery takes a lifetime not only for the person injured, but for those who love them.

We founded the Brain Injury Law Center to help people like you. We are brain injury lawyers dedicated to representing victims, survivors and their families. We build strong cases seeking compensation for brain injury sufferers when a person, company or any other entity can be held liable for what has happened. We can’t undo an injury, but time and time again we have been successful in obtaining large settlements and verdicts to ease the financial burden our clients face.

Our founder and director, Stephen M. Smith, is an internationally recognized expert in traumatic brain injury litigation, with nearly four decades of experience with brain injury cases. He handles lawsuits across the U.S. and the world and is often sought out by other attorneys for assistance.

Contact us today by calling (757) 244-7000 or filling out the form on this page to speak with an attorney about how to seek compensation for a brain injury. All consultations are free and without obligation. 

Trauma May Seem Minor

The brain is just as delicate as it is vital. Even something that initially seems like a minor injury can prove life-changing if certain portions of the brain are damaged.

This can happen in an automobile accident, while playing sports, after slipping and falling or in any number of other scenarios. Certain medical ailments may cause a critical loss of bloodflow to the brain, resulting in permanent damage.

Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Confusion or other cognitive problems
  • Change in personality
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Severe vision problems
  • Other emotional and behavioral problems

Reach Out

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious brain injury, we understand that you never wanted to be in this situation. However, just as you need medical experts to get the right care, you may need an attorney who understands the laws surrounding brain injuries to aid in your recovery as well. We lecture on this subject nationwide.

If there is potential compensation available that could ease your financial burden and aid in your recovery, you need to seek it. Contact the Brain Injury Law Center today at (757) 244-7000 or by using the form on this page for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case.
