Head Injury

Sports or Recreational Injuries

It's every parent's worst nightmare. Your child is on a sports team and you receive a call that they have been brought to a hospital with a head injury. Words start to tumble from your mouth; "How severe?" "How did it happen?" "How could this have been prevented?" The head injury lawyers in Denver and Boulder at PURVIS • Gray Thomson, LLP is experienced in head injury cases. We have helped many families negotiate head injury monetary awards resulting from a sport or recreational activity.

Not all head injuries are the result of a sports occurrence. Head injuries can happen at the workplace, from a fall, from an assault, and during military service. Head injuries can be external or internal. An example of an external head injury could be a cut or scratch.

However, an internal head injury can be serious. An internal head injury is a blow to the head resulting in the brain being knocked to one side, or torn blood vessels. A common type of internal head injury is a concussion. A concussion is a temporary loss of normal brain function. Repeated concussions can cause permanent damage. If you or a family member has suffered any type of head trauma and would like to know if you should file a lawsuit, contact PURVIS • Gray Thomson, LLP. Our Denver and Boulder head injury attorneys handle head injury cases throughout the state of Colorado. Many of our cases are related to head injuries during sports or recreational activities.

Head Injuries in the Workplace or During Military Duty

Head injuries in the workplace can happen more easily than one may think. A piece of metal can hit you in the head, or you can be hurt by a piece of equipment. For soldiers, getting hit by a piece of metal during a blast can occur many times, and the effects of these head injuries may not be seen until many years later.

Many clients with head injuries have benefited from filing head injury lawsuits. If you have any questions about a head injury you or a loved one has suffered, contact a Denver and Boulder head injury lawyer at PURVIS • Gray Thomson, LLP by calling 303-442-3366 or email us.
