Studies have shown that the lifetime costs for a single traumatic brain injury can range well over $1 million. These expenses can strain even the finances of even the most cautious and well-prepared of victims.

Our Chicago lawyers for brain injuries understand how severe the physical, psychological, and financial toll of a brain injury can be. We will treat your personal injury case with the seriousness it deserves.

Why do brain injuries cost so much? Everything you do, say, and think is controlled by your brain. When your brain is damaged, your ability to live your life in the way you are used to is challenged, and you have to work exceptionally hard to re-gain basic skills.

Brain injury expenses often include:

  • Multiple surgical procedures
  • Prescription medications, including painkillers
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Mental health therapy

On top of these direct expenses, brain injuries can keep you away from work for an extended period of time. In the case of particularly severe brain injuries, you might not be able to return to work.

This puts you in a financial vise, and all because of someone else’s negligence. It’s not just. Our lawyers fight for you after your brain injury. We’re on your side, working as hard as we can so that you don’t have to bear the crippling financial burden by yourself.
