Car Accident / Motorcycle Accident
Incredibly, there were more than 5.3 million traffic accidents (car accidents and motor cycle accidents) reported to police in 2011. And more than 2.2 million people suffered injuries from those crashes.
Chances are, if you drive or ride in a car, you will be in a car accident at some point in your life whether you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk or any other cities in South Hampton Roads.
When you've been involved in a car accident, it's important to seek whatever medical care you may need.
You should also consider hiring an attorney. At Joynes and Gaidies Law Group, we help ordinary people who have been injured in automobile and motorcycle accidents.
It's also important to remember that while insurance companies are promptly there to take your information and determine damages, you still need someone with experience on your side to make sure your expenses are covered.
The insurance company's No. 1 priority is to seek out ways to keep compensation figures low and protect their budget.
Many car accident or motorcycle accident victims feel guilty about hiring an attorney because they don't want to financially penalize another driver who meant no harm. But the ones they end up hurting are themselves. Drivers pay premiums specifically for these situations so that no one ends up bankrupt trying to pay their medical bills.
Make sure you protect yourself by seeking the legal advice of Joynes and Gaidies. Our knowledgeable team of personal injury lawyers, which has more than 100 years combined experience, has helped clients receive some of the largest settlements in the country for catastrophic vehicle accident injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injury
The effects can last a lifetime.
Despite safety laws and education, traffic accidents injure thousands of people every year. Indeed, vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury.

At Joynes and Gaidies Law Group, our team of personal injury attorneys can help you receive the settlement you deserve.
Sadly, the majority of brain injury patients do not receive counseling on the long term difficulties that may endure for the rest of their life.
Even mild to moderate brain injuries can be costly. As many as 30 percent of the people who suffer a mild traumatic brain injury can have permanent damage, according to the Brain Injury Hope Foundation.
At first, your symptoms may not seem problematic. You may lose consciousness briefly or be unable to remember something. You might feel confused, have headaches or vision problems. You could have trouble concentrating or become forgetful. In other cases, you can have language and spelling deficits.
Other long-term disabilities from the brain injury can develop over time.
It's important for patients and their caregivers to think about the future.
Will lengthy hospitalizations or home care be needed? Will you need speech or physical therapy? Can you ever return to work or drive again?

But your employer has probably already hired a team of lawyers who specialize in keeping down their costs despite your medical expenses and needs.
