Denver Brain Injury Attorneys
Traumatic brain injuries typically result in significant lifestyle changes for the injured victim and family. Physical, cognitive, social and vocational changes are common, and recovery can be a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations.
Appropriate treatment of a brain injury may be complicated and expensive, involving diagnostic testing, drugs, surgery and rehabilitation. Securing proper medical care alone can be a full-time pursuit for an injured individual or family members. If the traumatic brain injury resulted from another's negligence, that person or entity may be liable for the resulting expenses. Contact Chalat Law today to work with experts who understand the details, costs, and impact of such traumatic injuries.

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?
Every year in America, 2.2 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), resulting in over 50,000 fatalities and 280,000 hospitalizations. About half of those hospitalized have long-term impairment that affects their ability to perform everyday activities. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object penetrates the skull and destroys brain tissue. Serious brain injuries can result from falls, car accidents, sports activities and work-related accidents.
Trauma to the head can cause the brain to bruise, bleed, tear or swell. There are two general types of head injuries: open and closed. An open injury results when the skull has been fractured, and usually results when the head comes in direct contact with a hard surface or object. A closed head injury does not involve a fracture but can be more serious than an open injury due to the possibility of brain swelling and the formation of dangerous blood clots inside the skull. Whether a brain injury is open or closed, the most serious injuries can cause brain damage, paralysis, loss of consciousness or even death.
With a long road ahead, you will need a personal injury attorney that can fight for you and ensure you are well taken care of in order to focus on your own recovery. Lawsuits dealing with traumatic brain injuries can be complex and require significant resources and expertise.
What To Expect From A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 5.3 million Americans have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living because of a traumatic brain injury. According to one study, about 40% of those hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury had at least one unmet need for services one year after their injury. Families of a TBI victim constantly shoulder the burden of providing adequate care and resources for the injured person.
