Brain injuries involve damage to the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and connecting nerves). Brain injury can result in loss of mental or reasoning ability (cognitive loss) or loss of coordination or physical ability (motor function). A variety of nervous system specialists — neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists and rehabilitation specialists — often must be consulted to identify the underlying location and cause of the personal injury, as well as the extent of it.
Brain injuries demand tremendous medical and legal knowledge from a lawyer. The lawyer must understand not only the legal aspects of the case, but also nervous system anatomy, physiology and medicine to prove the severity of the brain injury and how it was caused by an act of negligence.
The Chicago brain injury attorneys at Friedman & Bonebrake, P.C., recently settled brain injury claims totaling millions of dollars, including a recent settlement for $1.1 million for failure to diagnose a brain shunt malfunction, resulting in damage to the optic nerve and permanent, partial loss of vision. We have also obtained favorable results for victims of stroke, hemorrhage or bleeding on the brain, and permanent dizziness due to damage in nerves connecting the inner ear to the brain.Free Consultation: Brain Damage Injury Attorneys In Chicago
