If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury in a work-related accident, you may be able to secure medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation. At Malman Law, we have decades of experience representing work injury victims and their families throughout Chicagoland.
Brain injuries can happen in an instant, and can change victims’ lives forever. From vehicle collisions to company softball games, almost any situation can put workers at risk for sudden, life-changing brain injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in a work-related accident, the lawyers at Malman Law are here to help you fight for just compensation.
While workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system, employers and their insurance companies often make it extremely difficult for injured workers to receive the benefits to which they are legally entitled. This is especially true with regard to significant injuries – such as traumatic brain injuries – that can lead to a lifetime of medical expenses and inability to work. At Malman Law, we are committed to ensuring that work injury victims receive maximum compensation to cover their losses. If you or a loved one has been injured at work, we invite you to schedule a free consultation to learn more about your legal rights.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are injuries that result from sudden impacts to the brain. These impacts can range from various types of “closed” brain injuries (where the brain collides with the skull), to “open” brain injuries that involve objects piercing the skull and entering the brain.
Treatment, prognosis, and recovery for TBI vary greatly depending on the specific type of injury. For example, while concussions and whiplash can heal with rest, penetrating injuries from vehicle collisions and other major accidents can require extensive surgery and rehabilitation.
Some of the most common forms of work-related brain injuries include the following. Please note that this list is not exhaustive of the types of injuries that may entitle you to financial compensation.
In order to secure maximum compensation for a work-related brain injury, it is important for victims to understand both (i) the cause of their injury, and (ii) the full extent of their physical, financial, and emotional losses. Whether there are third-parties (such as a product manufacturer, contractor, subcontractor, or trucking company) that are responsible for your injuries or whether your best option is to seek a workers’ compensation settlement, having a full understanding of your situation is critical to making informed decisions about how to exercise your legal rights.
At Malman Law, we have handled thousands of injury claims and secured millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. We can help you evaluate your options and make sure that you receive the largest possible settlement, workers’ compensation award, or court verdict for your losses. All clients receive our “zero fee” guarantee, which means that you pay nothing unless we win your case.
