Brain injury is most commonly caused in car accidents, but any accident that involves head trauma needs to be brought to the attention of an experienced medical provider as soon as possible. Brain injury may show symptoms immediately following an accident, though it is not uncommon for a victim of this injury to be unaware of damage for months or even years.

If you sustain head trauma in an accident, no matter how mild it may seem, you need to seek a thorough medical evaluation. If you are diagnosed with brain injury, you need a dedicated Chicago personal injury attorney on your side to help ensure you are provided the full compensation you deserve.
