Temporal Lobe Injury
Denver Temporal Lobe Injury Attorneys

As the focus of the central nervous system, the brain is the most important organ in the body. As such, it is protected by one of the most solid sets of bones, the skull. However, it is composed of a soft, jelly-like substance and, when the head is given a hard jolt, is still susceptible to injury. The brain serves two primary functions, to receive information from the body about what it needs, and to send electrical impulses out to the body. In this way, the brain controls the rest of the body. The brain is divided into four major lobes: frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal. Each lobe has a different role.

What Is The Temporal Lobe?

The temporal lobe is a part of the brain that is located behind the frontal lobe, and under the parietal lobe. Information relating to taste, sound and smell is processed there, and it is involved in long-term memory storage. The temporal lobe is not as susceptible to injury as other parts of the brain, but any brain injury is serious, and can cause many complications in life. If you have suffered a temporal lobe injury, speak with a Denver brain injury attorney to discuss your options.

What Are The Effects Of Temporal Lobe Injury?

Temporal lobe injury may result in loss of smell, sound and taste. Patients may have trouble organizing verbal input, or comprehending language. Also, some patients may suffer long-term memory loss or changes in personality or sexual behavior.

How Can An Attorney Help?

  • Temporal lobe injury symptoms can take some time to present and so insurance companies may be hesitant to pay claims. An attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you continue to get the care that you need.
  • Negligence can be very difficult to evaluate in accidents, and an injury that may not appear until later, or that has such permanent and drastic effects complicates the matter. A brain injury lawyer can evaluate your accident, and decide whether you have a legal claim. If you do, he or she can aggressively pursue the legal case for you.
  • An attorney can help you file claims for worker’s compensation or disability as appropriate, and help ensure that you present and future medical and financial needs are met.
