Reliable Brain Injury Compensation Attorney in Illinois

What’s more, they are often undetectable to the causal observer, and at times, even to the victim.

In the medical field, understanding the brain is still a large challenge. Even medical professionals with years of experience and training are often forced to resort to trial and error and guesswork. While that fact remains, medical professionals who treat brain injuries are still held to same standards of quality. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury that directly resulted from the mistake of a doctor, nurse, technician or other medical professional, the brain injury attorneys at Malman Law in Chicago, IL can help.

Sometimes called the “silent epidemic” or “invisible injury”, brain injuries are life-altering, traumatic occurrences.

Traumatic brain injuries are serious conditions that affect millions of accident and assault victims every year. With the ability to affect your work, your family, and your enjoyment of life on a day-to-day basis, these injuries warrant your attention and require prompt medical diagnosis and care. At Malman Law, our Chicago personal injury lawyers are experienced in identifying the causes of traumatic brain injuries and helping victims obtain maximum compensation for their losses.

The Facts on Traumatic Brain Injuries

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are 2.5 million traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in the United States each year. However, this only takes into account the people who go to the emergency room or die as a result of their injuries – the actual number of traumatic brain injuries is likely much higher.

Of the known instances of traumatic brain injuries, nearly 20 percent result in hospitalizations or death. Overall, nearly 30 percent of all injury-related deaths result from a TBI. These are alarming numbers that shows just how serious traumatic brain injuries can be.

The vast majority of these injuries result from occurrences where someone other than the victim may be to blame. According to the CDC, the top four causes of traumatic brain injuries are:

  • Falls – at least 600,000 injuries annually
  • Being struck by or against an object (for example, on a construction site) – at least 280,000 injuries annually
  • Auto Accidents – at least 300,000 injuries annually
  • Assaults (including police brutality) – at least 170,000 injuries annually

While auto accidents are only the third-leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, injuries suffered in vehicle collisions are the most likely to result in death.

Do I Have a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injuries occur when a sudden impact, violent shaking, or penetration of the skull disrupts the functioning of your brain. There are two types of TBI:

  • Closed traumatic brain injuries, which do not penetrate the skill; and
  • Open traumatic brain injuries, which occur when an object penetrates the skull and enters the brain.

Open brain injuries are further classified into “penetrating injuries,” which involve an object such as a knife or metal shard becoming lodged in the brain, and “perforating injuries,” which involve an object like a bullet entering and exiting the skull.

All traumatic brain injuries are classified as either “mild” (e.g., a concussion that does not result in loss of consciousness) or “severe” (e.g., an injury that results in long-term memory loss or permanent brain damage).

Understanding Brain Injury

A common misconception is that all brain injures result in symptoms like dizziness, seizure, disorientation, fuzzy thinking and headaches. But many brain injures have little to no symptoms, making them one of the most difficult to diagnose and treat.

Brain and head injuries can require a broad range of medical treatment, from mild cases – in which the injured person looks and acts normally – to severe cases, where the victim requires round-the-clock care for life.

Unfortunately, many insurance companies and responsible parties don’t make it easy for brain injury victims, even if they are clearly at fault. That’s why it’s so important to seek the assistance of a Chicago malpractice lawyer so you can get the money you need to properly care for your brain injury.

What are the Symptoms and Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries are dangerous not only because of the damage they can cause, but also because victims often do not realize that they have suffered serious injuries. Following a vehicle collision or other accident, the rush of adrenaline or the overall chaos of a situation can often lead people not to immediately feel their injuries.

As a result, if you have been involved in a car accident, suffered a fall, been assaulted, or struck in the head by a high-velocity object, you should always seek prompt medical attention. Your doctor or the emergency room physician will be able to diagnose your injuries and make sure that you receive the necessary treatment to avoid any unnecessary complications.

The following symptoms may all be indicative of a traumatic brain injury:

  • Depression and other changes in emotional condition or stability
  • Impaired movement or motor function
  • Impaired thinking
  • Loss of hearing or vision
  • Memory loss

If not treated promptly, severe traumatic brain injuries can have lasting effects that can impact you and your family for the rest of your life.
