Some of the most devastating injuries that people suffer in accidents are brain injuries. Brain injury is very common in auto accidents, and unfortunately, may be difficult to recognize and sometimes takes time before symptoms present. In addition to being difficult to diagnose, brain injuries are extremely complicated to treat, and the lingering effects can last a lifetime. In addition, brain injuries are quite commonly the result of other kinds of accidents such as slips and falls or construction accidents, as well as intentional acts of violence.

Types of Brain Injury
The brain is composed of soft tissue which is easily damaged. It is surrounded by a gelatinous fluid which prevents it, under normal circumstances, from making contact with the bone of the skull. When sudden, severe forces push the skull suddenly in any direction, however, the brain may make contact with the skull, which can result in various types of damage. Some common types of brain injury include:
- Brain Hemorrhage
- Frontal Lobe Injury
- Occipital Lobe Injuries
- Parietal Lobe Injuries
The Cost of Brain Injury
The economic cost of traumatic brain injury, between medical care and loss of productivity is estimated to total about $60 billion every year. A study done at the Perelman School of Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania suggests that, although aggressive treatments are more costly on their face, a 20-year-old whose traumatic brain injury is treated aggressively is likely to incur almost $100,000 LESS in lifetime medical bills than if he or she was given routine treatment. In addition, that person is likely to have more thorough recovery and higher quality of life. Unfortunately, in many cases, insurance companies see only the initial costs, and may refuse to cover those aggressive treatments. This is one more reason for you to speak with an aggressive Colorado Springs brain injury law firm as soon as possible.
