Chicago Brain Injuries Attorneys

The Chicago brain injury attorneys of Zneimer & Zneimer P.C. have handled many cases for clients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, including those resulting from auto accidents; truck accidents; construction related accidents; bicycle vs. car accidents; and slip and fall accidents. However, there are a plethora of causes for brain injuries. Litigation involving brain injury often requires expertise separate and distinct from the expertise provided by a general personal injury lawyer. The complexities involved in injuries related to the head and brain may be more appropriately directed at a head injury attorney with the knowledge and experience specific to this type of injury.

Each year in the United States, approximately 1.4 million people withstand a brain injury or traumatic brain injury or TBI, an injury that results in a jolt or blow to the head. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states “a TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.” Traumatic brain injury can result in subtle injuries such as a mild concussion, as well as extreme injury which can cause coma or death. As experienced head injury attorneys, we have seen such injuries occur as a result of falling and hitting one’s head, automobile related accidents, and being struck by or against some object, to name only a few. In addition, an often overlooked cause of head and brain injury are those that occur as a result of a medical provider’s negligence. For more information regarding causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries, visit the Brain Injury Association of Illinois.

Traumatic brain injuries can be severe and, unfortunately, often life changing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 53,000 individuals die each year as a result of a traumatic brain injury, and another 275,000 are hospitalized. The CDC also estimates that at least 5.3 million people in the United States are currently impaired to such an extent that these individuals require some form of support or assistance in performing everyday tasks. Additional information and reporting data related to traumatic brain injuries can be accessed through the CDC’s website. Our attorneys understand that, apart from getting the best care possible and in the most efficient manner, an equally important concern subsequent to a head or brain injury is payment for medical expenses, and reimbursement of out of pocket expenses.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
