Any type of brain injury needs to be taken extremely seriously. The long-term effects — including the need for constant, expensive medical care — can exact a toll on your health and finances. At Morrison, Ross and Whelan, our attorneys know what is at stake, so we fight to hold negligent parties accountable for the harm done to our clients. If you or a loved one is suffering from the effects of a traumatic brain injury sustained in an accident that was not your fault, our lawyers are determined to obtain the full compensation you deserve.

Our personal injury lawyers have a deep understanding of the complicated medical issues at play with brain injuries. We also have a registered nurse on staff who can assist our lawyers in developing and preparing your case.
The Virginia statute of limitations for personal injury is two years. This includes medical malpractice. So, if a person sustains a brain injury, he or she has two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit or they lose their right to compensation. However, there are circumstances that could extend that deadline, such as:
If you were in an auto accident more than two years ago, where you suffered a brain injury, it is still worth your while to speak to a knowledgeable attorney to determine if you can still file a claim.
With decades of combined experience and a track record of recovering millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, we know what it takes to get you the compensation you deserve when you are suffering and unable to work. We will work with the right experts and gather the right evidence to prove that your injuries are linked to your accident.
