Understanding Brain Injuries
The brain is a complex, fragile organ, which is why any type of head injury must be treated with the utmost care and speed. Brain injuries can occur anytime, but are common in automobile accidents, physical assaults, and in slip and fall incidents.
Common types of brain injuries include:
- Skull fracture
Identifying a Brain Injury
Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the cause of the injury, the resulting harm may vary. Some head injuries are not visible, but may show behavioral symptoms, while others might be obvious. For example, if one person has a skull fracture and the other has a concussion, both have serious head injuries. However, the individual with the skull fracture may show outward signs of an injury, whereas the person with a concussion might only present communicative symptoms.
Common symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Blurred vision, or loss of vision
- Loss of consciousness
- Loss of hearing
- Memory loss
- Lack of muscle control
- Poor coordination
- Abnormal changes in mood
Who Is Liable for My Injury?
If you or someone you love suffered a serious head injury, you should take the necessary steps to determine who might be at fault. If someone else’s negligence or mistake caused your injury, they may be responsible for the resulting damage. For example, if you were injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, that driver might be responsible for the head injury you suffered in the crash. This liability might extend to several damages you incurred as a result, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of wages.
Determining liability can be tricky, so it is always best to collect as much information as you can about your situation and take your case to our experienced Broomfield brain injury lawyers.
Let Our Experienced Attorneys Help You
Dealing with a brain injury lawsuit can be extremely challenging, especially if you are still dealing with the aftermath of the injury itself. Brain injuries can have serious repercussions, including brain damage, memory loss, personality changes, physical alterations, and more. In some cases, those who suffer brain injuries are no longer able to return to work and may require extra care at home.
If you find yourself dealing with a brain injury caused by someone else’s mistake or negligence, you have a right to seek justice and compensation. Our skilled attorneys can work with you to examine the details of your case, find the liable party, and seek compensation for the damages you suffered.
