Wheaton Traumatic Brain Injuries Attorney

Illinois Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit Attorney

The Brain Injury Association of America defines traumatic brain injury (TBI) as any “blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain.” Serious brain injury can result from a variety of accidents or actions caused by negligence or a criminal act, including a car accident, physical assault, or an improper surgical procedure. However it may be caused, the results of a traumatic brain injury often include significant medical expenses, inability to function on a job, and years of rehabilitation.
