Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury is a type of brain injury that is caused by an external force striking the head. Our attorneys in the Chicago, Illinois area are sensitive to these situations and are very experienced with successfully representing such cases. There are two types of traumatic brain injury – closed head and penetrating head injury, which both can lead to bruising or bleeding, tearing, and swelling. Traumatic brain injury can be very serious and can have permanent physical, mental, and emotional consequences. While treatment may be able to help people recover from minor head injuries, serious cases of traumatic brain injury can end in permanent disability or death.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Because traumatic brain injury is most often caused by motor vehicle accidents, violence, and falls, a traumatic brain injury may be the result of another person’s negligent or dangerous behavior. When this is the case, the victim and his or her family may be able to receive compensation. The traumatic brain injury lawyers at our Chicago, Illinois firm understand the pain that this type of injury can cause you and your family.

Spinal Cord Injury

Although spinal cord injury can be the result of disease, trauma is a much more common cause. When a traumatic injury damages vertebrae in the spinal column, the spinal cord itself may be injured. Spinal cord injury results in impaired sensation and movement, because spinal cord injury inhibits the ability of the brain and nerves to work together. As a result, permanent or temporary paralysis below the injury site is common. Spinal cord injury can therefore have a dramatic effect on a victim’s life. The spinal cord injury lawyers at our Chicago, Illinois firm have experience helping victims of this type of injury and can help you get the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries.

Spinal Cord Injury Compensation

Many times, spinal cord injury is the result of another person’s negligent actions. In such cases, the victim and his or her family may be able to receive financial compensation. This can be important, because of the permanent impact spinal cord injury has on a victim’s life. Medical bills, lost wages, and other considerations make adequate compensation extremely important. We will handle your spinal cord injury case with personal attention and compassion. Our expertise in helping victims of spinal cord injury allows the team at our Chicago, Illinois firm to offer you superior representation.
