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?”
At Purvis Gray Thomson, LLP, our trial lawyers have handled many head injury cases. We have helped many families negotiate monetary awards related to sport or recreational injuries and other types of accidents.
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.
An internal head injury, however, can be much more serious. An internal head injury occurs when the brain is knocked back and forth or blood vessels are torn. 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 head trauma, how do you 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 sustained during sports or recreational activities.
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.
If you have any questions about available remedies, please call our office at 303-442-3366 or send us an email to schedule your free initial consultation. We take cases on a contingent basis, which means we are only paid once we recover compensation for you.
