An Established Personal Injury Law Firm For Head and Brain Injury Victims in Greater Chicago
A head injury, especially a traumatic brain injury, can be particularly tragic because the consequences are often lifelong. If you have suffered a head injury due to someone else’s misconduct (carelessness or even deliberate violence), it is imperative that you seek experienced legal counsel who will fight to make sure you receive every dime that you deserve.

A Word From One of Our Clients
“Two years ago, I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet.” – Malman Law Client
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1) What are some symptoms of a head injury?
Some of the most common symptoms of a head injury include:
- Confusion and disorientation
- Slow breathing
- Fatigue and listlessness
- Numbness or tingling in the extremities
- Loss of concentration
- Insomnia or oversleeping
If you experience any of these symptoms, especially after a blow to the head, seek medical attention immediately.
2) Can I file a claim if my loved one died from a head injury?
A wrongful death claim can be filed by the personal representative of the victim (the person named in the will as the estate executor, or someone appointed by the court). Damages can be substantial, and they will go to the surviving spouse or next of kin.
3) What are some common causes of traumatic brain injury?
The most common causes of head and brain injuries are:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports injuries (especially boxing injuries)
- Violent assaults
Children are particularly susceptible to traumatic brain injury, because they are physically physical fragile and because they tend to be accident-prone.
4) My accident occurred quite some time ago, but I am just now experiencing symptoms. Is it too late to file a claim?
The general deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years after the date of the accident. This deadline could be extended if you can prove that you had no way of knowing that you were injured until after the accident. This can be reasonable claim, because sometimes symptoms of head injuries are delayed.
