Car Accidents and Brain Injuries

Pueblo Automobile Accident Injury Attorney

According to recent statistics from the CDC, approximately 1.7 million Americans sustain some form of traumatic brain injury every year! While traumatic brain injuries can range in severity from mild concussions to more severe and life-threatening head injuries, each traumatic brain injury disrupts functioning of the brain and can have life-long consequences if not treated properly.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The types of traumatic brain injuries that may result from a Colorado car crash include:

  • Concussions – Brief loss of consciousness
  • Contusions – Bruising of the brain
  • Hematoma – Bleeding inside or around the brain
  • Skull Fractures – Breaking or cracking of the skull
  • Anoxia – Lack of oxygen to the brain

Consequences of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries can cause long term or permanent impairment of a person’s cognitive, physical, and emotional abilities.  Due to the severity of TBI suffered due to car crashes, many car accident survivors must undergo long-term rehabilitation to recover maximum brain functioning.  The results of a car accident can be emotionally, physically, and financially devastating to victims and their loved ones. Unfortunately, due to the fact that traumatic brain injuries are not always immediately apparent, it may be difficult to prove that your traumatic brain injury was the result of your car accident. Therefore, it is critical to speak with an experienced and qualified Colorado car crash attorney immediately after your accident to review all of your legal options.

If you or someone you love was involved sustained a traumatic brain injury after a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses.  After a traumatic brain injury, you may find yourself in need of compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages, disability equipment, and decreased quality of life. A qualified Colorado car crash attorney can evaluate your situation and recommend what actions to take to obtain the compensation you deserve.

If you or someone you love is involved in an automobile accident, it is important to contact a Pueblo car accident injury attorney immediately to review your case and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
