The brain is the most complicated organ in the body, and it rarely heals well after an injury. When an accident causes brain injuries, you could face a lot of medical needs, sometimes for years afterward. Pendleton Law’s brain injury lawyers can help you pay for those needs.
We do this through the civil court system and insurance companies. Negligent people who harm others need to pay for what they’ve done, and our team can make it happen for you. Find out how we can help you with one free case evaluation and consultation.
Consequences of Brain Injury Accidents
If not caught in time, brain injuries can worsen over time and lead to loss of bodily and mental function. This can keep you from working, enjoying your life, or even kill you. It’s crucial to see a doctor right away if your head was hit in an accident. Look for symptoms like:
- Loss of consciousness (see a doctor IMMEDIATELY)
- Vomiting or nausea
- Abnormal behavior
- Differences in pupil size
- Memory issues
- Speech and language issues
- Clear or bloody fluid leaking from the nose, mouth, or ears
- Sensory issues
- Breathing issues
- Head pain
- Stiff neck
- Coordination problems
An X-ray, CT scan, or an MRI can look into the brain to detect damage. Early detection and treatment can slow or stop the worsening of symptoms. Don’t put off seeing a doctor if you’ve hit your head in an accident, especially if you’ve lost consciousness even for a moment.

Compensation in Brain Injury Cases
Once you accept a settlement offer, you cannot get more money later from the same accident. You need a brain injury lawyer to help you find every avenue of compensation for your claim. Do not accept the first offer that comes, even if it looks like a lot! Take it to us first.
You can receive compensation for many things in your brain injury accident, including:
- Current and future medical bills
- Renovations to accommodate any disabilities
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Disability payments
- Medications and medical gear
- Transportation to specialists
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
Any negative consequence you’ve had because of your accident could add on to your total damages. Your brain injury attorney will gather evidence to build a strong case and fight to get you every penny you deserve after your accident.

How Do You Pay for a Brain Injury Attorney?
It’s understandable to worry about how you’ll pay for legal representation when you’re facing so many other bills. Fear not. Our brain injury attorneys work on a contingency fee system. You don’t have to pay us anything unless you win your case.
When you win, we will take a reasonable percentage of your final compensation. If we decide to take on your case, we will clearly explain this percentage in your contract and consultation. This way of arranging payments for legal services puts personal injury representation in the reach of everyone.
It also gives lawyers a powerful incentive to fight hard and get the maximum amount of compensation they can for their clients. The more you get, the more we get. Ask us about our prior brain injury cases during your consultation to learn how much we’ve been able to win for clients.

Do You Have a Deadline to File?
In Virginia, you have two years from the day you were injured to start your case, but you should speak with a lawyer far sooner than that. You don’t even have to be out of the hospital to get started. As long as you can hold a conversation, or have a representative call on your behalf, you can start working with us.
If you wait too long to start, we won’t have much time to build your case before we have to decide on settling or going to trial. Once the statute of limitations has passed, you cannot recover damages in court. This is one of the worst outcomes.
Since you don’t have to pay unless you win, there is no harm in starting as soon as possible. Once a doctor has diagnosed you with an injury, call our offices for a consultation. Once you have Pendleton Law on your side, you can let them handle your case while you focus on recovery.
