Brain Injury | Denver Colorado | Attorney John Fuller
Motor vehicle accidents can cause devastating injuries and traumatic brain injuries—especially frontal lobe injuries are some of the most debilitating injuries a person can face. If you or someone you love has suffered from a frontal lobe brain injury, it is important to understand your injury so you can be prepared for the future and all of its challenges.
The brain is generally comprised of 6 main sections:
- The Frontal Lobe
- The Parietal Lobe
- The Temporal Lobes
- The Occipital Lobe
- The Brain Stem
- The Cerebellum
Injuries to these areas will result in vastly different symptoms and disabilities because each of these areas is responsible for different functions. The frontal lobe is located in the forehead region and is responsible for mood, language, personality, sense of smell, attention and the ability to plan and execute those plans. Any injury to this area of the brain can lead to devastating disabilities and can directly impact nearly every aspect of a person’s life, including the ability to maintain relationships.
A frontal lobe injury can be severe or it can mild, depending on the accident and the forces the brain had to withstand. Even if there was no direct blow to the head, such as severe whiplash, a victim can still sustain a serious traumatic frontal lobe brain injury.
In general, a person who sustains a frontal lobe injury may have difficulty speaking, concentrating, planning complicated steps, interacting with others, problem solving and making decisions. In addition, you may notice paralysis or partial paralysis in certain areas and extreme mood and personality changes. If you notice any of these symptoms after an accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Fast medical treatment is the best way to prevent symptoms and disabilities from becoming permanent.
A traumatic brain injury can leave victims with permanent disabilities that prevent them from working, enjoying life to the fullest and maintaining relationships. If your frontal lobe injury is the result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, loss of work and pain and suffering. In addition, if your frontal lobe injury has caused permanent disabilities, your Colorado personal injury attorney will be able to help you file for Social Security and disability benefits, as well as workman’s compensation– if you were injured on the job.
