LegalView Announces Newest Brain Injury Blog Update

LegalView, the online leader in personal injury legal information, is proud to announce their newest brain injury blog post. This post follows some recent legislation proposed by a senator in West Virginia.

Denver, CO, December 07, 2009 --( LegalView is pleased to announce that in the wake of an eventful Veteran's Day celebration, new brain injury information has been posted to the LegalView Traumatic Brain Injury website, available at, specifically addressing an issue of concern to both veterans living in the United States as well as friends and families of those veterans. Many veterans are overlooked and forgotten about, have suffered grievous injuries during their service, or are affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Others have been the victims of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), leaving them with other chronic problems. Sadly, despite the health care offerings of the U.S. government, many are unable to receive necessary traumatic brain injury treatment.

The newest LegalView blog focuses on the introduction of legislation to assist veterans living in geographically isolated locations. Currently, there are not enough medical centers adequately equipped to treat every veteran suffering from TBI close to home. Many veterans must travel great distances to receive care and brain injury support; this is simply not an option for the vast majority of veterans suffering from something as debilitating as a TBI. Those with this condition are often unable to drive or travel great distances because of their condition. There are, of course, online resources, such as LegalView's brain injury information portal, available at

The legislation would create a bridge of services between local medical professionals and the Department of Veterans Affairs to help support those veterans struggling with a TBI in a rural area. It is estimated that up to 20 percent of servicemen and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan sustain injuries associated with a TBI. Since such a large number of veterans suffer from the effects of this injury, it is therefore ideal that their needs are served by the Department of Veterans Affairs, regardless of their location. Additionally, this is a potential legal concern for those veterans not served by the Department; many soldiers have contacted an experienced brain injury lawyer to pursue potential litigation.

Thus, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., seeks to ensure that veterans in need of proper care do not go without because of transportation restrictions; instead, the new legislation proposes the partnership be put in place to provide treatment options close to home. Even with the new treatment options, some individuals with a brain injury may still want to contact an experienced brain injury attorney for more information about possible legal action that may help with medical costs or provide compensation.
