Brain injury victim shares story to educate others

Accidents involving distracted drivers can cause a myriad of problems for Colorado residents and others around the nation. From fender benders to horrific crashes that result in serious injuries and even death, these incidents are more tragic since they are preventable. One victim of such an accident in another state suffered a traumatic brain injury and decided to document her story, years after it occurred.

In Feb. 2013, a mother of five children had gone to a local Walmart to get items for her son's birthday. A driver of a sports utility vehicle allegedly did not see the woman and struck her as she walked in the parking lot. Footage from the security video showed that the driver had been looking down at the time of the accident and had not slowed down his vehicle.

The woman was transported to a nearby hospital and evaluated. She did not have any internal bleeding or broken bones, although it was indicated that she had a concussion. However, after seven years, she is still dealing with the effects of the injury and hopes to educate other about traumatic brain injuries, or TBI. Those who have suffered a TBI may have difficulty with communication and the ability to think coherently.

The victim encourages anyone who has suffered "a blow to head" to take it very seriously and seek appropriate medical care. In addition, if a brain injury has occurred due to another person's distracted driving or other negligence, it would be wise to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. An experienced Colorado attorney can assist families with filing a lawsuit against the party or parties believed responsible. A favorable result in a lawsuit can provide compensation to cover medical costs, hospital bills and expenses for ongoing therapy and treatment.
