Chicago Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Traumatic brain injury is a silent epidemic. More than 1.5 million Americans will suffer a traumatic brain injury this year. That’s more than 8.5 times the number of people who will be diagnosed with a new case of breast cancer and 34 times the number of people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS each year.

Each Chicago traumatic brain injury lawyer of The Horwitz Law Group pursues financial compensation for people whose brain injuries were caused by negligence. We are experienced in helping people obtain the financial compensation they need for their medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages or income, and lost earning capacity.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs when the head is hit with enough force to cause a temporary or permanent disruption in brain function. TBIs can range from a mild concussion to a permanent disabling brain injury to coma or death.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Motor vehicle accidents and falls are the leading causes of traumatic brain injury to civilians. Many of these accidents are caused by the negligence of others, including careless or reckless drivers or property owners who fail to keep their property safe.

A traumatic brain injury often results in loss of memory, focus and cognitive function. In addition, brain injuries can cause emotional disturbances and personality changes. Claims for mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs) can be challenging because none of these changes can be documented by an empirical test, like an X-ray or MRI.

Our Chicago injury attorneys may refer you to a neuropsychologist who can perform tests that will indicate the deficits caused by brain injury. We may also interview people who knew you before and after the accident and can testify to the changes they have observed in you.

A brain injury can be a life-altering injury. Don’t trust your claim to just any attorney. The Horwitz Law Group will work tirelessly to see that you have to resources you need. To arrange a free initial consultation, please contact us today.
