Traumatic Brain Injuries and other head trauma can leave victims with intense problems or even long-term, life-altering disabilities. People who experience even minor brain injuries may need to take a long time to recover from them, which is time not spent working, doing things they enjoy, or spending time with loved ones.

What Causes Brain Injuries in Lakewood?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can happen for all kinds of reasons. A TBI is the result of a hard impact or blow to the head that damages the brain. This can occur in many different ways. That being said, no matter how your brain injury happened, our brain injury lawyers will be able to fight for you in court to get you the compensation needed to deal with it.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car, truck, and bus accidents frequently cause brain injuries because of the level of impact force involved. In fact, brain injuries can still happen even when a motor vehicle’s safety features work as intended. For example, the force of airbags deploying after a crash may save your life but also give you a mild traumatic brain injury – also known as a concussion.

Slips and Falls

Slipping and falling down is often played for laughs in TV and movies, but the injuries you can get from a nasty slip and fall are anything but funny. If you hit your head in a slip and fall, you can get a brain injury.

Workplace Injuries

Many jobs require manual labor, working around heavy machinery, or being in close proximity to heavy things that may fall down. People who work in warehouses, the construction industry, and other jobs like this may be at a greater risk of suffering a brain injury on the job. Note, however, that there may be some complexities for a work injury claim depending on how exactly you got injured, so you should discuss it with our brain injury lawyers.

Athletic Injuries

Sports and other recreational physical activities can, unfortunately, result in brain injuries, especially if negligence is involved. Brain injuries are common in contact sports like boxing or football. Traumatic brain injuries can be even more likely in these activities if proper safety equipment, like a helmet, is not available or not used.

Brain Injuries Other than TBIs in Lakewood

There are other brain injuries besides TBIs that can still have serious consequences. If you have any of these brain injuries because of someone else’s negligence, you can still file a lawsuit and get damages.

Hypoxia and Anoxia

Hypoxia happens when an insufficient amount of oxygen is reaching the brain, while anoxia refers to too much oxygen reaching the brain. Hypoxia and anoxia are very dangerous conditions and can lead to serious complications. Hypoxia is linked to heart and organ damage, impaired speech, memory, and other motor functions, and hormonal issues. Ultimately, a lack of oxygen to the brain will result in death.

Hypoxia is particularly common in birth injuries, potentially resulting in cerebral palsy, and can also happen in cases of drowning or work in mining, excavation, or other jobs with reduced air quality.

Brain Infections

Sometimes, other injuries or medical conditions can lead to an infection reaching the brain. This happens when the pathogen in question passes the “blood-brain barrier.” Once that happens, such infections are very hard to treat. Brain infections can have serious consequences like losing the ability to speak or do other basic things, paralysis, or death.

Some brain “infections” can be brought on by an overreactive autoimmune response called encephalitis. Encephalitis causes swelling in the brain, which can lead to serious complications like seizures or death.

You can sue for a brain infection injury under a number of circumstances. For example, if the infection happened after a medical procedure, you may be able to sue the hospital in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Compensation for Brain Injuries in Lakewood

If you successfully file a lawsuit and prove that the defendant is liable, you can get damages for your brain injury. The goal of damages in a personal injury case is to “turn back the clock” on the plaintiff’s situation to how they were before getting injured. Especially in the case of brain injuries, this is not always literally possible. Accordingly, financial compensation is frequently used as a substitute.

You can get damages for medical expenses incurred because of your brain injury. This includes things like treatment and hospital stays, but also long-term care. For example, if you need full-time assistance because of your injuries, you can receive financial compensation to offset that cost.

You can also get damages for things that are less tangible. For example, if your brain injury leaves you in a considerable amount of pain each day, you can get financial compensation because you have to deal with that pain, lost functions, inability to do certain activities, and more. Since these “non-economic” damages do not have a value placed on them from the start, you will have to show their value with the help of our attorneys.
