Helping Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries in Chicago and the Surrounding Area
Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) most commonly results from vehicle collisions and falls. While TBI is usually associated with a blow to the head, it can occur even absent a direct injury when there is sufficient force to produce rapid movement on the head and neck, causing the brain to shift within the skull.
TBI is initially graded as to severity on a spectrum including mild, medium, and severe designations. Statistically, chances for full recovery are greater for injuries on the lower end of the spectrum, (e.g., concussion). However, there is a significant percentage of the mild TBI population that continues to suffer effects long after injury occurs.
Consequences of TBI can include various cognitive deficits that often affect personal relationships, educational performance, and employability. These cognitive deficits include:
- memory, attention, concentration, and organization deficits
- depression and other psychological disorders
- hypersensitivity to light and sound
- balance and speech disorders
- irritability and other personality disorders
- changes in taste and smell
- sexual dysfunction

Facts You Should Know About Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBI is frequently evaluated and treated by various medical specialists, including doctors, therapists, psychologists, and neuropsychologists. TBI survivors often require ongoing re-evaluation and care in order to maximize their recovery and quality of life.
Although there are generally established protocols for the ongoing evaluation and treatment of TBI survivors, the combination of issues which arise with respect to each TBI patient can be unique. Cases involving children, senior citizens, professionals, business owners and managers and other members of society often require analysis specific to their sub-group.
