Traumatic brain injury (TBI), or head injury, is one of the most feared results of any accident or fall. TBI occurs when sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. Symptoms of TBI injury can be mild, moderate or severe.
The lawyers of Purvis Gray Thomson, LLP, represent victims of acute brain injuries. Our Boulder-based attorneys have been successful in achieving TBI settlements.
With a mild brain injury, the victim can become dazed or confused, but not lose consciousness. Concussions fall under the category of a mild brain injury. A moderate brain injury can be the result of sudden trauma to the head. Moderate brain injuries symptoms are not very obvious and can include memory loss, confusion and mood changes.
Severe brain injury is the result of a sudden or violent hit to the head. In a serious personal injury, the patient may lapse into a coma or a vegetative state and need long-term care.
According to a recent study, acute brain injuries are the leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults. Each year approximately 1.5 million people sustain a brain injury, with about 50,000 people dying each year from a TBI. Roughly 230,000 people are hospitalized from brain injuries each year and survive.
