    When Can You Pursue a Personal Injury Claim after a Brain Injury?

    You may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim for a brain injury that you have suffered when your injury was caused by someone’s negligence, recklessness, or willful actions, or other legal fault imposed by law.

    For example, you may have a personal injury claim if you’ve suffered a brain injury in a motor vehicle accident that another negligent motorist caused. You could also be entitled to bring a personal injury claim if you suffer a brain injury in a fall on someone else’s property that was caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition that the property’s owner negligently left on the property.

    What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive for a Traumatic Brain Injury?

    • brain injuryCosts of medical treatment, including surgeries, medication, and doctor’s appointments

    How Long Do You Have to File a Brain Injury Lawsuit in Colorado?

    In Colorado, you have a limited period in which to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for a brain injury. This period is known as the statute of limitations. The limitations period for a brain injury lawsuit in Colorado will depend on your specific circumstances.

    Most brain injury lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of the injury. However, if you suffered a brain injury in an accident involving a motor vehicle, such as in a car accident or pedestrian accident, you will have three years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit.

    If you fail to file suit before the statute of limitations expires, the opposing party can ask the court to dismiss your case permanently. If that happened, you would lose your right to seek compensation through the court system.

    What Are the Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

    If you suffer extensive damage to the head, the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may imminently appear or be slightly delayed. Even if you feel that your injuries are minor or even non-existent at first, it will be vital to seek medical attention right away. That is especially true if you suffer any of the following symptoms after an accident or injury:

    • Difficulty remembering short term or long-term events
    • Disorientation
    • Confusion
    • Blurred vision
    • Headaches and sensitivity to light
    • Dizziness or vertigo
    • Vomiting or persistent nausea
    • Ringing in the ears
    • Unconsciousness
    • Difficulty forming a sentence and speaking coherently
    • Inability to focus
    • Emotional irritability
    • Insomnia

    These symptoms are gravely serious and can be debilitating if not treated with proper care. Because of the high-risk nature of traumatic brain injuries, you will need to connect with a lawyer trained to handle these cases.

    If you suffer any of the symptoms above, a traumatic brain injury lawyer at Earl & Earl, PLLC will factor in every issue of your case to ensure that you pursue the maximum amount of compensation for the harm that you have suffered.

    What Are the Risks Associated with Traumatic Brain Injuries?

    With a traumatic brain injury, victims face varying degrees of harm, associated risks, and rehabilitation periods. For instance, if you have a mild traumatic brain injury, a doctor may advise you to rest and take over-the-counter medication to offset the pain of headaches and migraines. You may experience minor but not debilitating sensitivity to light or other visual stimuli. You should closely monitor your symptoms and follow your health care provider’s professional advice. If you feel that your symptoms are worsening, only a medical professional can help.

    For those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury on a more severe scale, the TBI may be classified as moderate or even severe. If you have a moderate or severe form of injury, you may have to spend extended time in the hospital. Extended hospital stays are a crucial part of recovering from a traumatic brain injury because your body and progress need to be closely monitored every day. In the hospital, you will receive around-the-clock medical care such as blood pressure monitoring and imaging tests that will ensure your body is functioning at its peak potential and that your symptoms are not worsening.

    Regardless of the degree of your injury, every individual traumatic brain injury requires medical care and constant supervision of symptoms. When you take time off from work to let your body heal, the repercussions can be costly.
