Our brains are responsible for carrying out our body’s most important functions, from speech and movement to memory, concentration, and everything in between. Any damage to the brain can lead to severe, long-lasting complications—and in many cases, another person’s negligence or carelessness is responsible for a brain injury.
If you sustained brain damage at the hands of another person or entity, the Denver brain injury attorneys at Purvis Thomson, LLP can help. We can help you hold the at-fault party accountable for your damages.
A brain injury often occurs due to a blow to the head or when an object penetrates your skull, damaging the sensitive brain tissue it protects. Being struck by or against an object is a common cause of brain damage. This injury can occur during many types of accidents, including the following.
If you developed a brain injury in an accident that was caused by someone else, you may have grounds for an insurance claim or lawsuit. Through these claims, you can recover damages related to the economic, or financial, losses you sustained. You can also recover compensation for your non-economic damages, also known as pain and suffering.
Examples of damages in brain injury claims include the following.
To secure compensation in a brain injury lawsuit, you will need to prove that the at-fault party’s negligence is responsible for your damages. You will need to supply evidence that supports four key elements to accomplish this.
For example, say that a driver ran a red light and collided into your vehicle head-on. Drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws, and by running a red light, the at-fault driver breaches his or her duty of care. The impact of the accident causes you to hit your head against your windshield and sustain brain damage, which you could prove using your medical records.
Your attorney at Purvis Thomson, LLP can help you gather the evidence necessary to establish these elements, as well as the potential damages you may qualify for.
