Colorado Springs Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
A blow to the head is often serious since your brain controls your physical and cognitive functions. Even a mild impact to the skull can cause serious damage, while a major injury can be life changing or even fatal. The consequences of traumatic brain injury can be long-lasting, the injury expensive to treat and the ailments severe enough to make work impossible. For these reasons, you need to understand your legal rights if someone else caused your traumatic brain injury.
At Levine Law, our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys in Colorado Springs have experience representing clients who suffered an open or closed head wound that injured the brain. We can help you take legal action and get the compensation you deserve whether your injury was sustained in a car accident, a slip and fall, because of a defective product or as a result of any other type of negligence.
Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can range from a concussion to a coma to permanent brain damage. A single blow to the head can cause a TBI while repeated or ongoing strikes can cause severe impairment over time. The symptoms of the TBI vary depending upon the circumstances but can include loss of consciousness, cognitive impairments, seizures, mood changes, ringing in the ears, fatigue and physical limitations. In some cases, the symptoms may take months or years to subside or you may never to completely recover from the brain injury.
Often these serious injuries occur as a result of preventable accidents. For example, brain injuries may occur as a result of truck or car accidents, pedestrian or motorcycle crashes, bike accidents, construction injuries, slip and falls, workplace accidents or skiing accidents. Traumatic brain injuries may happen because a driver, property owner or employer failed to live up to their obligations to avoid putting you at risk. It can be devastating when you suffer permanent harm or you lose a loved because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another.
The laws in Colorado allow accident victims to make the person responsible for the brain injury pay for the losses. If you sustained a brain injury due to the negligent acts of another, you can recover compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. If your family member was killed by an accident causing traumatic brain injury, then you can recover wrongful death damages including payment for lost companionship.
Comprehensive Representation to Brain Injury Victims
If you or a loved one was the victim of a brain injury and you want to pursue a personal injury action under Colorado law, you should consult an experienced Colorado Springs accident lawyer.

To obtain the best result, you should take legal action with a caring, knowledgeable legal advocate on your side.
