Concussions and Your Rights…  

Concussions have gotten some attention over the past years mainly because of an outpouring of NFL players who have come forward with brain injuries.  These injuries have been proven to be caused by sustaining significant blows to the head forcing the NFL to reexamine their medical protocols and overall practicing methods. Many people experience concussions without even knowing.  These cases can be in children who are involved in contact sports, those involved in a forceful blow due to a car accident, those who work on construction sites and are injured by heavy machinery, and many more.  If you endure a head injury leading to a concussion, it’s important to know your rights.

Colorado Springs man killed after suffering trauma…  

A man from Colorado Springs was killed after falling from North Maroon Peak and suffering from a traumatic brain injury. According to police officials, the accident occurred when a boulder suddenly became loose and caused the man to fall down the 14,000- foot rock. Officials estimated that the man fell roughly 800 feet and that he was climbing alone at the time. Other climbers found the man and called emergency officials. A helicopter arrived at the scene to transport the man to the hospital, but he was later pronounced dead by rescue workers.

Denver soldier makes remarkable recovery from brai…  

A Denver soldier, Joel Hunt, suffered serious injuries in 2005 when he was hit by a bomb blast during his third tour of duty in Iraq. The explosion left him with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), confining him to a wheelchair for an entire year after he returned home. Since then, Hunt has tried to be an inspiration to others who have suffered similar fates. Hunt has battled post-traumatic stress disorder and is still partially paralyzed in one leg. Despite his situation, he remains optimistic. He recently ran a 5k in Denver and a local organization, Operation TBI Freedom, has helped him learn to ski. In fact, Hunt now plans to compete as a skier in the 2014 Paralympics. He has heard too many stories of soldiers returning from Iraq and feeling useless. His goal is to show them that they are still valuable people who have a lot to offer. Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is not easy, and it can also come with costly medical bills.

Junior Seau’s brain to be donated for resear…  

NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau was found dead in his home last Wednesday. He is alleged to have committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest. He is at least the third former NFL star to have done so in the past year. This tragic event comes during a time when the football league is facing lawsuits for not warning its players of the dangers of concussions. Other players who have committed suicide in the past year have been said to suffer from depression and mental problems. The lawsuits claim that these suicides may be connected to concussions the players suffered while on the field. Seau's family has released a statement saying that his brain will be donated to science for the betterment of other athletes who may be under similar circumstances. They do not believe concussions necessarily played a role in his early departure. Junior Seau was inducted into the Hall of Fame during halftime of a Nov. 27, 2011 game between the Chargers and the Broncos. Our condolences go out to Seau's family.

TBIs can affect children’s cognitive abiliti…  

A recent study into the long-lasting effects of traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, in children says that serious TBIs can reduce a child's cognitive abilities for at least 10 years. This research was conducted in Melbourne, Australia and published in Pediatrics. Participants in the study had suffered traumatic brain injuries between the ages of two- and seven-years-old. The children were first observed five years after their injury, and then researchers followed-up with testing 10 years after their TBI. According to the study, the children who suffered severe--as opposed to mild or moderate--TBIs were the most likely to show minimized cognitive ability. The mean IQ score of children who suffered severe TBIs was 18-26 points lower than that of children who suffered less serious TBIs. Children above the age of seven-years-old and adults were reported to experience fewer long-lasting effects from TBIs. Statistics show that about one in every 30 children will experience a TBI before the age of 16.

Traumatic brain injuries most common among constru…  

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recently completed a study into the occurrence of traumatic brain injuries in all industries of the U.S. workforce. The Epidemiology of Fatal Occupational Traumatic Brain Injury says that workers in the construction industry are the most likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury.  The study also says that the most common cause of fatalities in the construction industry is falls. In previous studies, the most common cause of fatalities in the construction industry was found to be motor vehicle accidents.  Researchers believe that the significant increase in the percentage of the U.S. workforce over the age of 65 contributed to the shift from motor vehicle accidents to falls. If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, an experienced injury attorney may be able to help you receive compensation.  Contact the Denver traumatic brain injury lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770 to speak with one of our attorneys today.
