Denver Car Accident Injury Attorney
Car accidents can result in severe impacts that lead to serious head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). It is not unusual to be jolted and to have your head hit a headrest, windshield or another part of a vehicle. In some instances, people are even ejected from their car because of the force of the impact. Regardless of how serious the car crash is, you should seek medical treatment immediately. Although you may feel fine, it is important to have a thorough examination to ensure you get proper treatment.

Compassionate and Skilled Brain Injury Attorney
One of the vital components to proving a brain injury is understanding the mechanism of the injury or how it occurs. Often a car wreck can occur as a result of:
- Head-on collision
- Being hit from the side
- One car causing another car to run off the road
- A high speed impact resulting in a car flipping or rolling over
- Skidding into another vehicle
Whether the accident occurred while a car was accelerating or decelerating, the force of the impact and the impact on the body can easily result in a head injury. Concussions are more common in everyday car accidents than people think. Even simple to moderately severe accidents can result in a concussion.
If you think you may have suffered a concussion, you need to be seen by a doctor whether you go to urgent care, the emergency room or even your own primary doctor (PCP) right away for further follow up. Often, a Cat Scan or MRI will be performed, but even these sophisticated tests do not always reveal a concussion. A doctor can recognize the symptoms and monitor you to see if additional follow-up treatment is needed.
People who suffer other types of TBI may need surgery and rehabilitative therapy to deal with the long-term effects of a brain injury.
At our law firm, it is our goal to build a solid legal case that proves the brain injury and liability in or out of court, and to receive compensation not only for immediate medical damage, but for pain and suffering and ongoing medical care often required long after the accident. We will be by your side to help you every step of the way until we reach a fair outcome.
