How a Boulder Brain Injury Attorney Can Help

An experienced Boulder brain injury lawyer will consult with you regarding your injury and investigate to determine whether there are grounds for medical malpractice or personal injury claim on your behalf. This often involves gathering evidence, medical records, and consulting with experts.

If there are grounds for a claim, your attorney will then file a lawsuit with the appropriate court and start negotiations or litigation on your behalf. Our Boulder brain injury attorneys are skilled at taking on large insurance companies and teams of attorneys on behalf of our clients. We work tirelessly to build your case and prove your damages by:

  • Investigating the facts of the case
  • Performing any accident reconstruction
  • Obtaining all relevant records
  • Conducting witness interviews

If we cannot negotiate a just and fair settlement on your behalf, Dormer Harpring will proceed to litigate your case in civil court. Schedule your consultation today and begin your claim evaluation. The sooner we start working on your case, the faster we can request damages for your injuries.

Common Causes of Brain Injury

Brain injuries are traumatic or acquired. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an external force or trauma to the head. The impact to the head may leave the skull intact or penetrate the skull. An intact skull injury is a closed head injury, while a penetrating skull injury is known as an open head injury.

Common causes of traumatic brain injuries are the following:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Workplace accidents
  • Military accidents
  • Assaults
  • Sporting accidents
  • Falling objects

Acquired brain injuries are medical injuries. These may include:

  • Stroke
  • Infection
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Birth injury
  • Surgical errors

A brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe. Mild brain injuries may result in little or no loss of consciousness. A severe brain injury may cause a long lapse in consciousness of a day or more. Brain injuries are not readily apparent; therefore, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention after any head injury.

Brain Injury Compensation

The victim of a mild to moderate brain injury can lose a significant amount of income, acquire large amounts of medical debt, and accumulate other personal and financial losses. The victim of a severe or traumatic brain injury may lose the ability to work or even perform routine self-care and require full financial and medical support.

Due to the range of injuries in a brain injury case, the amounts of compensation awarded to a brain injury victim can vary greatly. However, the types of damages pursued in a claim generally include:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Medical equipment and home care
  • Physical therapy
  • Loss of income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, including physical and emotional trauma
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage

Never sign a settlement agreement without consulting a brain injury attorney.
