West Virginia Brain Injury Lawyers
A traumatic brain injury can bring life-altering consequences. Depending on the severity of the brain injury, a person who suffers from one may be permanently disabled and unable to work. Brain injuries can result from a variety of different events, including participation in sports, motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall accidents, assaults and more. When a person receives such an injury because of the wrongful conduct of another or because of negligence, he or she may be able to recover monetary damages in amounts sufficient to cover all of the suffered losses.
