Handling Cases Across the State of Colorado
Traumatic brain injuries are commonly caused by motor vehicle collisions, including those involving large commercial trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Brain injuries can be caused by lack of oxygen during medical procedures. They are also frequently caused in sports-related events, whether as a member of a football team or while skiing at one of Colorado’s resorts. No matter the circumstances, brain injuries are serious and catastrophic. Brain injuries can impact behavior, physical capabilities, personality, and well-being in subtle or transformative ways.
Some brain injuries can be hard to prove if brain imaging does now show an injury. However, many brain injuries happen on a microscopic scale not visualized on MRI or CT scan. If you hire an attorney who does not have experience in these types of cases, or who does not take the time to fully investigate the injury, you might not receive the compensation you deserve. Our team understands the importance of ensuring that the full extent of your injury is developed and documented, which is why we work with specialists who have the expertise needed to prove the extent of the injury and resulting consequences.
Because of our thorough approach to preparing brain injury cases, we have achieved many outstanding results for clients who have sustained all types of brain injuries.
Our lawyers are experienced with traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an external force that leads to dysfunction of the brain. These injuries can be closed or open. Closed injuries occur when the brain is not penetrated while open injuries occur when the skull is penetrated. Non-traumatic brain injuries occur when the brain is damaged by internal factors such as a lack of oxygen, a stroke, an infectious disease, a seizure, medication error, or other causes.
Common causes of traumatic brain injuries:
- Traffic accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Ski or other recreational accidents
- Child abuse
- Gunshot wounds
If you suffer a brain injury, you may have the grounds to file a personal injury claim against the responsible party or parties. Claims can be made for injuries sustained in both accidents as well as criminal attacks and medical malpractice.
Examples of brain injury cases that our lawyers have handled include:
- A $15 million judgment for a young woman who suffered a severe brain injury and severe frontal lobe damage.
- A large federal court judgment for a woman that sustained a brain injury as a result of a collision with an out-of-control snowboarder.
- A maximum settlement for a young woman who suffered a brain injury in a fall.
- A significant settlement for a man who suffered a brain injury in a skier vs. skier collision and was no longer able to work.
- Settlements for a large number of clients who suffered brain injuries in auto collisions.
We take pride in the results we have obtained that include damages for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or income, loss of earning capacity, physical impairment, emotional trauma, and other compensation pertaining to the details of individual cases. No matter the complexity of your brain injury case, we will use our extensive experience and resources to help you achieve optimum results.
