Legal Options for Head Injury Victims

Under Colorado law, you have the right to pursue legal action if someone else’s negligence caused your head injury. For example, if you sustain a head injury in a motor vehicle collision, you could file a lawsuit or insurance claim against the at-fault driver. You can file a workers’ compensation claim if you sustained the injury while performing your job duties.

You can file a lawsuit or insurance claim against a property owner if you suffered the injury while on his or her premises. If a defective product caused the injury, you could file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of the product.

If you sustain a head injury due to the actions of another person or entity, you need an attorney on your side. A Boulder brain injury attorney can represent you in your claim and gather the evidence necessary to prove your right to compensation. He or she can also evaluate your case and identify your appropriate legal pathway.

Common Causes of Head Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) often occurs when you hit your head on a surface or foreign object, or when an object penetrates your skull and injures your brain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional falls accounted for 49.1 percent of TBI-related hospitalizations in 2017, while motor vehicle accidents accounted for 24.5 percent of these hospitalizations during the same year. Assault, intentional self-harm, and being struck by and against an object also contributed to these injuries.

At Purvis Thomson, LLP, we handle a wide range of cases involving head injuries, including the following.

Head Injury Symptoms and Complications

If you believe you have sustained a head injury, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Without prompt treatment, these injuries can lead to serious, life-threatening conditions that result in complications such as coma, brain death, or a vegetative state. In some cases, untreated head injuries are fatal.

Head injury symptoms often vary from person to person. Some of the most common symptoms include the following.

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Persistent or worsening headache
  • Loss of coordination
  • Weakness in the fingers or toes
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Slurred speech
