A brain injury can affect one’s life in profound and innumerable ways. The brain is the control center of the body. If it is damaged, this can affect cognitive skills, memory, personality, communication, muscle control, and more. A victim may be left facing a limited and challenging life, requiring ongoing treatment and care that can quickly add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars over the years.
The recovery of lifelong compensation is essential in cases that involve permanent brain damage. Even if the damage is temporary and a victim is able to return to his or her normal life, compensation should cover any and all related costs, injuries, and losses that the victim and his or her family have experienced or may experience in the future. At Huffman & Huffman Brothers-in-Law, PLLC, we recognize the importance of a fair settlement or award for brain injury victims. Our Newport News brain injury attorneys fight to maximize recovery, using our considerable resources and experience in the pursuit of civil justice against at-fault parties.
Damages in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit for a brain injury may include:
- Emergency medical care
- Ongoing treatment
- Physical, speech, occupational, and other therapies
- Medication, medical supplies, and assistive devices
- In-home care
- Lost earnings
- Loss of future/potential earnings

Physical trauma or a lack of oxygen can cause brain damage. When brain damage is linked to negligence, defective products, or any type of wrongdoing, the at-fault party can be held responsible for providing the financial compensation that is needed to help the victim rebuild his or her life.
We understand that no amount of money could “compensate” a victim of a serious brain injury or a family that has lost a loved one. It can, however, ensure that the responsible party is brought to justice, and it can provide a victim and family with a more stable future. That is our goal at Huffman & Huffman, to help our clients face better and brighter futures even in the midst of the most traumatic times.
