Individuals who suffer from traumatic brain injuries are often left unable to do many of the activities they once found routine. The Roanoke Brain Injury Lawyers with Skolrood Law Firm explain there are services available to provide assistance to Virginia brain injury victims.

An article from WSLS 10 News highlighted the story of a 37-year-old man facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills while being unable to work due to a brain injury caused by an infection of viral encephalitis. His condition leaves him with unbearable headaches and short-term memory issues. These complications have forced him out of his job as a restaurant manager in Christiansburg, Virginia.

He now takes as many as 21 pills per day to treat his condition and must visit his doctors two to three times per week.

Thanks to a $25,000 grant, the man is now able to receive assistance from Brain Injury Services of Southwest Virginia. Their staff is able to help the man sort through and pay his medical bills. They even remind him to attend his medical checkups and escort him to treatment facilities. The man says the services he is receiving are crucial to his long-term recovery.

Skolrood Law Firm’s team of Roanoke Personal Injury Lawyers applauds the efforts being made to help those stricken with debilitating brain injuries. The firm is here to answer any legal questions brain injury victims may have as well.
