A head injury can be defined as damage caused to the head, resulting from an open or closed head injury. Head injuries can cause problems for you or a loved one for an indefinite amount of time and can cause a severe handicap to the affected individual. Head injuries can lead to brain injury if the injury is severe enough.
If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury, you may have recourse to file a lawsuit. In cases where the head injury was caused by the negligence of another, our Connecticut injury lawyers can help get you the settlement you deserve. We advance all of our fees and only collect any money if you are awarded a settlement. Please contact Hastings, Cohan & Walsh at (877) 801-6202.
Head Injury Causes and Liability
Head injuries have varying degrees of severity and their general symptoms can be quite different. Physical symptoms may range from seizures to headaches and extreme fatigue. You may also experience memory loss, attention impairment, language impairment, and changes in your mood. Because of these variations, our Connecticut attorneys work tirelessly to determine liability and if a lawsuit should be pursued.
Head injuries can occur because of several causes, including the following:
- Head being struck by an object
- Brain experiencing an acceleration or deceleration movement, which is oftentimes caused by a motor vehicle accident
- Sports and recreational accidents
If a head injury involves a loss of consciousness, memory loss before or after the injury, or any alteration of your mental state, this may be classified as a traumatic brain injury.
In order for our Connecticut attorneys to determine liability, we will work to determine if your head injury was caused because of the negligence of another. Liability is determined by judging the actions of a person and comparing them with what a “reasonable person” would do in that situation. If the person that caused your head injury was acting outside of reasonable parameters, we can establish negligence.
