What Causes Brain Injuries? Who Is Responsible?
Brain injuries may be caused by any sort of trauma to the head or by a sudden impact that causes the brain to impact the side of the skull. Some brain injuries are caused by negligence or carelessness, and others are caused by intentional wrongdoing. Some occur in hazardous occupations or while playing sports. Determining cause is an essential part of handling a TBI claim.
Serving Chicago and the surrounding cities and counties, we handle TBI cases involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, and bicycle collisions
- Construction site accidents, including ladder and scaffolding falls, factory accidents, and more
- Accidents on another's property, such as falls from heights and slip and fall accidents
- Defective products that cause harm to consumers
- Work-related accidents affecting firefighters, construction workers, and workers in all industries
- Transportation accidents, including train, airplane, and boating accidents
Depending on the case, one or more individuals or companies could be responsible for your brain injury. It will take a full investigation and review of all evidence and witness accounts to assign cause and liability. Our team has experience with personal injury, product liability, and workers' compensation matters related to TBIs and will use our insight to deliver the best possible result in any scenario.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries require immediate medical intervention. As such, it is important to be aware of the potential signs of such an injury and to seek medical care after head trauma, even when symptoms are relatively mild. Early treatment is crucial for these catastrophic injuries.
The symptoms of a brain injury are many and varied, but can include:
- Mood swings
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Loss of consciousness
- Cognitive changes
- Feeling lightheaded
- Dizziness, nausea, and vomiting
- Difficulty communicating
- Difficulty sleeping or waking
- Inability to recall memories
- Altered sense of taste and/or smell
If you or someone you love is experiencing these symptoms, visit your local urgent care center or emergency room or call 911, depending on the severity of the injury. Tell your doctor what happened and keep all records of your medical treatment, as this can help support a future TBI claim.
Recovering Damages in a Brain Injury Claim
Brain injuries can be life-changing, affecting the way a person thinks, feels, functions, and relates to other people. In the wake of a serious head injury, it is usually difficult for victims to process information at the same speed as before their accident, affecting things like judgment and perception and sometimes leading to aggressive or even violent behavior. These changes can hinder a person's ability to work, leaving them to suffer the financial burden of endless medical bills and causing their family to fall into financial ruin. The consequences of a brain injury may be lifelong.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a severe concussion, permanent brain damage, or another type of brain injury, it is important that you retain the services of a trusted and qualified Chicago brain injury attorney. A competent lawyer can fight to maximize your compensation.
Recoverable damages in a TBI claim may include:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation bills
- Life care costs
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life
Since no two cases are exactly alike, we encourage you to make an appointment with a member of our team to talk about what types of compensation you may be eligible for.
