Chicago Traumatic Brain Injuries Lawyers
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) consists of what its name implies: trauma to the brain. These injuries can range from the mild to the severe; severe TBI can lead to long-term consequences and even death. These injuries are caused by a blow to the head or an object that penetrates the skull, hitting brain tissue resulting in temporary or permanent damage.
Motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, criminal attacks, sporting events, and similar devastating accidents and events commonly cause TBI. At Angelini, Ori & Abate, we understand the impact that such injuries can have on TBI victims and their families who may be affected for weeks, months, years, or for life. That is why we fight tooth and nail to help you secure the financial resources needed for physical recovery as well as for the pain and suffering, emotional anguish, and other losses associated with these disastrous injuries.
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the brain is a complex organ that controls:
- Motor skills
- Social interactions
- And more
It controls “every process that regulates our body.” This means that a brain injury, whether mild or severe, can disrupt any bodily process. Thus, the symptoms of TBI contain a long list of temporary to permanent disabilities from the physical to the sensory to the cognitive.
Examples of what a TBI can cause include but are not limited to:
- Headaches, nausea, and fatigue
- Slurred speech
- Blurred vision
- Loss of memory
- Inability to concentrate
- Mood swings
- Anxiety or agitation
- Learning disabilities
Anyone who suffers a brain injury should seek immediate medical attention to determine the extent of the injury and to receive timely treatment that may reduce its effects. These injuries can consist of bruising and swelling of the brain, brain bleeding, objects lodged in the brain, and torn brain tissue. When sustaining such injuries, you may need not only immediate medical care but long-term care and personal assistance to accomplish daily tasks while recovering or on a permanent basis.
