Head injuries can be divided into three categories: intracranial (inside the skull), cranial (fracture or damage to the skull itself) and extracranial (outside the skull). Intracranial injuries are often the most dangerous because they involve the brain itself. However, it is important to remember that extracranial injuries can also be life-threatening. Examples include subgaleal and other bleeds or hematomas, which can be life-threatening conditions, especially when the personal injury victim is an infant.
At Friedman & Bonebrake, P.C., our Chicago head injury accident attorneys have successfully handled cases involving all of these types of head injuries. We work with neurologists, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors) and other head injury specialists to detail carefully for the jury the specific injury, its severity and its cause.
Examples of specific head injuries our lawyers have handled include stroke, concussion, subgaleal bleed, optic nerve damage, inner ear damage, broken and disfigured noses, and severe damage to the scalp requiring stitches or other interventions.Free Consultation: Head Trauma Attorneys In Chicago
