An aggressive Denver injury attorney at Samuel S. Hansuld, P.C. can help you achieve justice if you or a family member has suffered a traumatic brain jury.
Effects of TBI include:
Feeling “just not right” in the days after any violent collision
Suffering from headaches or fuzzy or blurry vision
A change in the amount of sleep (both more than normal and less than normal)
An inability to concentrate, including abnormal sensitivity to noise or light
Behavior changes like becoming easily irritable or excessively emotional
Speaking in a slurred or slower than normal manner
Difficulty communicating such as finding the correct words to say or understanding others when they speak
Both the head injured victim and his or her family will feel the pain of a traumatic brain injury. The injured person must cope with the confusion, pain and turmoil of head trauma, and his or her family members must learn to live with a person who is not the mother, father, son or daughter they once knew. The financial impact is also great, with ongoing treatments and medications causing medical bills to pile up, while the injury might prevent the victim from working or obtaining health insurance.
Any impact to the head can result in a traumatic head injury. These impacts can result in a broken skull or a violent collision between your skull and brain, which can cause blood clotting or tears in the brain.
Like with spinal cord injuries, the causes of traumatic brain injury are numerous and varied. Some of the more typical causes include:
Falls, which can result from wet floors or dangerous conditions on someone else’s property
Another person striking or pushing you
Recreational activities like bicycling or sports
