Colorado Car, Motorcycle and Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
When you are involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, it is imperative to seek proper medical attention, even if you do not believe you have suffered any injuries. While traumatic brain injuries may be indicated by a coma or other severe symptoms, certain brain injuries, such as a mild or moderate closed head injury, may not be initially apparent. Proper diagnosis and treatment can make a significant difference in the extent of impairment caused by the brain damage.
Denver traumatic brain injuries attorney Michael P. Litman is experienced in handling catastrophic motor vehicle accident cases involving mild, moderate and severe brain injuries. Clients of our personal injury law firm can expect the highest level of care and compassion as we help them obtain the medical attention they need and the compensation they deserve.
Brain Injuries Change Lives
At the Litman Law Firm, PC, we understand how a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect the lives of our clients and their families. Depending on the location and extent of the brain damage, our clients endure a range of brain injury symptoms and effects:
- Memory loss
- Headaches or nausea
- Mood swings or personality changes
- Concentration problems
- Slurred speech
- Loss of coordination or mobility
- Other physical or psychological effects
Seek Medical Attention - Then Contact an Attorney
While a concussion or external damage to the head are obvious signs of more serious trauma, brain damage can result even when there are no external clues immediately apparent to the accident victim. When a brain injury is not properly diagnosed and treated, the accident victim can suffer far greater brain damage. The swelling of the brain can cause pressure that, if not relieved, can exacerbate brain damage, cause the brain to bleed or result in other permanent effects. Therefore, first and foremost, following a serious motorcycle accident, tractor trailer or truck accident, or any other catastrophic automobile accident, you should seek medical attention.
Protect Your Right to Be Compensated for Your Brain Injuries
Once you have been properly assessed, you should consult an experienced car accident lawyer to understand your rights and ensure your interests are fully protected. Unfortunately, insurance companies and their representatives do not fully understand brain injuries or the extent of damage they can cause accident victims. Therefore, when assessing or valuing a personal injury claim, they do not account for the full extent of your losses and your future needs - resulting in settlement offers for far less that you are entitled.
At the Litman Law Firm, we bring experience and knowledge to your catastrophic auto accident case that can make a difference. We demonstrate the extent of your losses and work with experts to quantify your future losses. We pursue all avenues of financial recovery in order to ensure you receive the full compensation to which you are entitled.
