Chicago Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Lawsuits in Illinois
A traumatic brain injury, whether it's permanent or temporary, severe or mild, can turn the injured person's life upside down. Since 1994, the lawyers at Malman Law in Chicago, Illinois, have represented clients who need help with traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases, as well as personal injury claims and lawsuits. We are dedicated to fighting for your rights to compensation and proper medical care.
When the brain is damaged by sudden, physical force, traumatic brain injury may occur. The foremost causes of TBIs are motorcycle accidents, car accidents, and slip and fall accidents. Getting hit on the head by an object or person can also cause TBIs that range from mild to severe. Sometimes, TBIs can be easy to detect, while other times, they are more difficult to identify—symptoms may take days or even weeks to present.
Statistics and Symptoms for Traumatic Brain Injuries
Each year in the United States, at least 1.4 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury. Signs that one has experienced a TBI include: Chronic neck pain and headaches, confusion, memory loss, difficulty focusing, extreme fatigue or grogginess, loss of balance, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the head, loss of at least one of the five senses, seizures, problems understanding and expressing language, loss of motor control and movement, not being able to chew and swallow correctly and uncontrollable twitching.
A personal injury law firm that understands the complexities of a traumatic brain injury can help you recover the maximum compensation possible.
Experienced Traumatic Brain Injury Representation
The staff of lawyers at Steven J. Malman, P.C. includes a physician who has a law degree as well, so we can determine whether you are suffering from a TBI. If we need, we can consult with other doctors, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, therapists and other doctors who can evaluate your condition so we can prove your case. We can also provide referral to an expert if you need further treatment.
The personal injury lawyers on our staff will take immediate and aggressive steps to bring the liable party to justice and get you the compensation you need and deserve.
We know that people don't have the time to wait around for proper care and reimbursement, and we're here to help you get through the challenges of a TBI. We take care of the legal proceedings so you can focus on recovering.
If we are unable to negotiate a substantial recovery for you, our litigation team is not afraid to file a lawsuit against the liable party and bring the case to court to fight for compensation. We will also fight for your rights to damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical costs both current and future, and any potentially-lost wages in the future.
