The Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury By emachado on February 19, 2015

An illustration of a brain within a human skull, representing traumatic brain injuryIf someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, you already know just how devastating such an injury can be to the lives of both the victim and his or her family. The emotional consequences and physical hardships are overwhelming enough. Add the unexpected medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and other mounting expenses into the equation, and you have a recipe for chaos, frustration, and depression.

You shouldn’t have to go through this alone, especially if your loved one’s brain injury was caused by the negligent actions of another person or group of people. How is it fair that you and your family should have to pay for the mistakes of someone else? It’s bad enough the quality of your loved one’s life has been compromised, perhaps permanently; tragically, there is nothing that can undo the reality of that situation. However, those financial burdens should not be your responsibility. And the personal injury attorneys of Rubin, Machado & Rosenblum, Ltd. can help to ensure that you obtain every cent of the compensation to which you are justly entitled.

At our law firm in Chicago, traumatic brain injury causes of all types are represented in the claims we have successfully handled throughout our history. Whatever the cause of your loved one’s brain injury, we will fight tirelessly for you, using all of the resources at our disposal to present the strongest, most compelling case possible on your behalf.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Most traumatic brain injuries result from a traumatic event, whether an object penetrates the skull or a violent jolt causes the brain to collide with the inner wall of the skull. In either case, the injury to brain may be immediately apparent or it may produce no clear symptoms until irreparable damage has been done. This is why it is vitally important for victims of accidents to seek immediate medical attention even if they believe that they have sustained no serious injuries. When left untreated, brain injuries tend to worsen rapidly, until damage becomes permanent or even fatal.

Our personal injury attorneys handle cases involving brain injuries resulting from virtually any type of accident, including:

  • Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, boating, and pedestrian accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Construction, warehouse, and other workplace accidents
  • Falls from ladders, roofs, scaffolding, and other high places
  • Violent attacks, including those that occur due to lack of adequate security
  • Accidents that occur due to unsafe conditions on a commercial or private property
  • Accidents involving being stricken by falling objects
  • Accidents involving defective machinery, automotive products, toys, and other consumer and workplace products
  • Acts of medical malpractice, including the failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a brain injury
