Geoff McDonald & Associates can help you with head injury cases.
Head injuries can happen on any job at any time due to slip and falls, vehicle accidents, falling objects and more. Of all the types of injuries that can occur on the job, head injuries are possibly the most dangerous and can lead to traumatic brain injuries, concussions, hematomas, contusions and more.
TBI can cause a host of physical, cognitive and behavioral issues and result in side effects including severe and continual headaches, dizziness, seizures, speech and reasoning difficulties, personality changes and emotional instability. TBI victims may require physical therapy, speech therapy, recreation therapy, occupational therapy and vision therapy – for weeks, months and perhaps years.
Anyone who has suffered a head injury – regardless of its perceived severity – should be examined by a medical professional immediately.
Unlike other types of injuries, the long term effects of head injuries generally cannot be determined right away. However, it’s safe to say that most head injury victims will likely incur substantial medical bills, continued medical monitoring costs and the need for specialists depending upon the circumstances of the injury. The injury may also result in the inability to work short term, long term or perhaps even permanently. It can put an enormous financial strain on your family to pay your bills and make ends meet. Getting the compensation you need after sustaining a head injury is important for you and your family – especially when you don’t know what the future may hold. That’s where Geoff McDonald & Associates can help.
Head injuries have the potential to change the lives of those who suffer the injury and the lives of their families – emotionally, physically and financially. Most head injuries that occur at work will be covered under your employer’s workers’ compensation (WC) insurance policy. If you’ve been denied legitimate WC benefits after suffering a head injury, contact the experienced and aggressive WC attorneys at Geoff McDonald & Associates to evaluate your claim.
Our attorneys will fight to get you the money you deserve for lost wages, medical costs and fees, vocational rehabilitation, retraining and more. We make it our job to understand your individual needs and circumstances. We know the WC system and we’ll guide you through it to obtain the maximum workers’ compensation and other benefits for which you’re eligible. We’ll make sure you’re fully informed and educated about your case at every step along the way.
We accept clients from across Virginia, including these areas: Eastern Shore, Hampton Roads, Chesapeake Bay, Northern Virginia, Central Virginia, Southern Virginia, Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Highlands and the Heart of Appalachia.
Our personal injury lawyers are available to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we have the No Fee Guarantee®, meaning you don’t owe us a legal fee unless we win or settle your case.
