If you or someone close to you has sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you understand the difficulties it can cause. Memory and mobility problems, speech impediments, chronic headaches and memory loss are only a few of the many symptoms you might be experiencing. An experienced Chicago brain injury lawyer with Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz may help you determine whether you have a personal injury case.
Car accidents and truck accidents are two of the most common ways to receive a TBI. Even a small bump on the head in a crash can result in a concussion; more serious head injuries can result in coma, permanent disability or even death. There are, of course, many other ways to sustain brain injuries. For instance, you could hit your head after slipping on a wet surface at the grocery store, possibly resulting in a premises liability case. Your child may have a product liability case if a helmet’s design was defective and didn’t protect his or her head while playing sports.
Erb’s or Klumpke Palsy
Birth injuries are another common cause of brain injuries. Tragically, medical malpractice during prenatal care or labor and delivery can result in a number of birth injury conditions, including the lifelong afflictions of Erb’s palsy and Klumpke palsy. These conditions can severely limit a child’s ability to live a normal life. Individuals suffering from Erb’s or Klumpke palsy may also experience pain, depression and other physical or emotional conditions as a result of their brain injury.
Regardless of the cause of you or your loved one’s TBI, you will need a traumatic brain injury attorney who has experience working with medical professionals and can gather the evidence needed to support your case. At Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz, our team works closely with doctors, nurses and other medical staff to determine the cause and severity of each client’s injury. We then use that information to get you the compensation you need for your continued care.
