If someone else’s careless or reckless actions resulted in you or a loved one being seriously injured in a car accident, you may be able to file a claim. Consult a Front Royal personal injury attorney to learn how you can protect your legal rights. 

One type of injury that may be suffered in a serious accident is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The most common types are closed-head injuries and penetrating injuries. 

A closed-head injury could be accompanied by any of the following: 

  • lacerations;
  • contusions;
  • nerve damage;
  • blood clots; and
  • skull fractures. 

A penetrating injury happens when an object pierces the head and enters the brain. The damage sustained will depend on the location of the injury and the extent of damage. 

There is another type of injury that, although rare, can lead to further complications. Secondary brain damage causes symptoms to appear over a period of time. 

The costs to treat a traumatic brain injury after a car accident may be significant. In addition, you may be without income and may have suffered other losses. As a result, you could be eligible to recover compensation for damages.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
