Traumatic Brain Injury
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.
