Chicago Brain Injury Attorney

Each year thousands of Americans are permanently disable as the result of a brain injury. 

Brain injuries may be caused by:

•  Car Accidents

•  Slips and Falls

•  Violence

•  Contact Sports (including Football and Hockey)

•  Other Trauma Caused By Negligence

Most brain injuries are divided into three categories: Severe Traumatic Brain Injury, Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.  There are other tests and scales that are used to diagnose these injuries.  Regardless, these injuries can wreak havoc on a person's ability to lead a normal life, and can place a large financial burden on their loved ones.

Brain injuries are classified as either acquired or traumatic.  An acquired brain injury was not present at birth, i.e. it has been acquired through some life event.  A traumatic brain injury is considered any blow or jolt to the skull or any associated head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.  Not all head injuries result in traumatic injuries.

If you believe you have a traumatic brain injury as the result of another person's negligence then you should explore your legal options.
