Waukegan Lawyers Helping Victims of Closed Head and Traumatic Brain Injuries

In many accidents, injuries sustained by those involved are immediately obvious - cuts and bruises, fractures, open head injuries, or amputations. A closed head injury or traumatic brain injury is different, though. These tend to manifest over time and can result in permanent brain damage. A victim may walk away from an accident feeling okay, only to have a myriad of symptoms arise days, weeks, or even months later.

Recognizing the Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

A majority of traumatic brain injuries result from car or truck accidents, but they are not always the product of such strong impact. A TBI can occur due to medical negligence during surgery or something as seemingly simple as a slipping and falling on a wet floor or icy sidewalk.

Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury are varied in each person, but can include:

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Loss of coordination
  • Dizziness
  • Changes in personality
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches or blurry vision
  • Fatigue or irritability
  • Abnormal speech

Securing the Financial Compensation You Need

Closed head injuries and traumatic brain injuries can be life-altering and permanent. Some symptoms improve with medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy, but ongoing care is often required. The cost of this treatment can be staggering. If you or a family member received a traumatic brain or closed head injury due to the negligent actions of another party, you have the right to pursue compensation for your current and future needs. If the injuries occurred on the job site, you may also be able to file for workers' compensation benefits.
