TBI/Brain Injury Lawyers Serving Fort Collins & Northern Colorado
Compensation for Catastrophic Head Injuries
Brain trauma is one of the most catastrophic types of personal injury that a person can face because the brain is the main organ controlling a person’s bodily functions. When a person’s brain is injured even slightly, the effects can be severe. Brain cells do not replace themselves once damaged, although a person can still “heal” from a brain injury when the other areas of their brain compensate for the damaged area. The damage is still permanent, however, and can have a permanent impact on the victim’s ability to live the life that they knew before their accident.
Understanding Brain Injuries
The brain can be injured by a concussive injury or by a puncture or laceration. Car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and other such incidents can cause the victim to hit their head, jarring the brain against the inside of their cranial cavity. The brain can then become bruised and can swell, pressing against the skull and cutting off blood flow to the area. Brain cells then die and are not replaced.
Puncture wounds and lacerations to the brain can also cause bleeding, swelling, and permanent damage. Brain injury can cause a victim to suffer from loss of consciousness, amnesia, a reduced mental capacity, and a coma. These damages will require extensive and costly medical treatment, so be sure to retain a Larimer County personal injury lawyer who can maximize your compensation if you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury because of someone else’s negligence.
