Chicago Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Medical experts define traumatic brain injury (TBI) as an insult to the brain caused by an external physical force with or without skull fracture that may produce a diminished or altered level of consciousness. The statics on TBI are staggering: each year approximately 1.5 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from falls or car, truck and motorcycle accidents or assaults–and another 50,000 people will die as a result of TBI. A traumatic brain injury can cause life altering injuries that effect many facets of brain activity including: memory, concentration, judgment, abstract thinking, mood swings, personality changes, impulse control, fatigue and light sensitivity.
