Colorado Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Information

Over 1.4 million Americans experience a brain injury every year, according to the Center for Disease Control. Traumatic brain injuries, also known as closed head injuries, are the most devastating injuries an individual can face and can lead to a lifetime of disabilities and even death. While any serious accident can cause a traumatic brain injury, the majority of them occur after motor vehicle accidents, falls and sports accidents. If you or someone you love has experienced a brain injury, an experienced brain injury attorney may be able to help.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

During an accident, violent forces can cause internal damage to the brain. Surprisingly, the head does not have to strike an object in order for this damage to occur. Even severe whiplash can cause a brain injury. When the brain is injured, it begins to swell. This swelling causes the delicate brain to be compressed inside of the rigid skull walls and as a result the brain begins to lose oxygen. When the brain is deprived of oxygen, permanent brain damage can occur. If not treated quickly, the victim may even lose his life.

What are the symptoms of a brain injury?

Brain injuries can take hours or even days to become apparent. As the internal bleeding or swelling increases, victims may begin to exhibit several of these signs, including:

  • Loss of language or difficulty with language
  • Mood or personality changes
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of coordination
  • Changes in vision or hearing
  • Confusion
  • Severe headaches
  • Stroke like symptoms
  • Dizziness
  • Severe nausea or vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

If you or someone you know begins to exhibit any of these signs following an accident, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately to prevent permanent disabilities and brain damage from occurring.

Due to the severity of these injuries, traumatic brain injuries can have lifelong consequences and leave victims with permanent disabilities. When this occurs, it is important to have an experienced brain injury attorney on your side. If your injuries are the result of another party's negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Financial compensation will be needed to pay for medical expenses and rehabilitation expenses both now----and in the future. In addition, if your injuries are permanent, they may even  prevent you from maintaining gainful employment. If you suddenly find yourself in this unfortunate situation, a brain injury attorney may be able to help you obtain social security and disability benefits.
