Contusion Attorneys

An injury affecting the brain can be extremely frightening. Although there may be very few physical signs of injury, the internal damage to brain tissue can be severe. In cases in which a trauma causes injury, a victim may suffer what is known as a brain contusion. Essentially, a contusion is a bruise on the brain. As a result of the bruise’s swelling in the brain, pressure can build up and potentially cause irreversible damage.

If you have suffered this or any other kind of brain injury due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. For a free consultation with a skilled and experienced lawyer, contact the Denver contusion attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.

Symptoms of Contusions

In many instances involving contusions, the line between a bruise and a hemorrhage can be less well defined. In the simplest terms, the extent of tissue damage separates the two, as they both can significantly reduce a person’s mental faculties. The following are some of the commonly cited problems associated with brain contusions:

  • Loss of motor coordination or control
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of memory
  • Loss of language skills
  • Loss of other mental capacities

Although these complications, in their own right, can substantially impact a person’s way of life permanently, contusions can also be associated with life-threatening conditions. Contusions may occur as a result of other brain injuries that cause great pressure inside the skull. In a worst case scenario, a brain hernia can occur, causing bruising due to the brain being pressed against the skull.
