A car crash or other accident that results in trauma to the head can cause a brain injury, even when there is no outward sign of damage. The person who is injured may not even realize (or may attempt to deny) that brain damage has occurred. Family members are often the first to notice that their loved one is not the same after an accident.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, we represent victims of mild and severe brain injuries in accidents. Our attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for our clients, including $6 million for a man who suffered a brain injury after the vehicle he was driving was rear-ended by a bus. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
In the aftermath of an accident, the family of the victim may overlook troubling symptoms, thinking that they are caused by medication or pain. However, those symptoms could be an indication that their loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Symptoms may include:
While some brain injuries go away with time, others may be permanent. As your attorneys, our job is to ensure that your loved one’s condition is properly diagnosed and treated.
There is never a charge to discuss your case with us. Evening and weekend consultations are available. To schedule a meeting, call 312-226-4236 or send us an e-mail.
