Brain Damage Attorneys Chicago

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

  • Diffuse Brain Swelling.  Brain swelling and bruising may occur following a force to the skull. The brain will “bounce” off the inside of the skull causing nerve shearing, swelling, and bruising of nerve tissue.
  • Brain Injury Mayo Clinic says is usually from a fall or auto accident like, acceleration & deceleration (whiplash) and a direct blow to the head strikes something inside or outside a vehicle. 
  • Blow to head  During a crash your head can hit the pavement, the windshield, the side window, the steering wheel, and the top of a car. This direct blow to the head can cause many injuries like a broken nose, fractured jaw, leg, arm, tibia, radius,  concussion, contusion, and brain bleeds /hematoma.
  • A concussion can happen from violent shaking of the brain or violent blows to the head, neck, or upper body causing the brain to move back and forth violently against the inside walls of your skull. 
    • Whiplash or Acceleration & Deceleration is the sudden stop and go in a car crash that can cause a brain injury from the brain colliding with the hard skull surrounding it.
    • Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) occurs when sudden back-and-forth movement of the brain from the force of impact during a crash can tear or shear diffuse axonal nerve fibers. 
  • Brain Contusion / Hematoma A bruise or contusion can also be called a hematoma that can happen from different types of brain injury.
  • Brain Bleed: The seriousness of this type of brain injury depends on the amount of bleeding.   

Three types of Hematoma/brain bleeds – local personal injury: 

  1. Subdural hematoma is a collection of blood in the space below the outer layer (dura mater) and above the middle layer of the membrane surrounding the brain (the arachnoid mater). The violent movement to the head tears veins passing between these layers,
  2. Subarachnoihematoma or brain bleed is n the middle (arachnoid mater) and above the lower layer of membrane surrounding the brain.  A skull fracture can cause this type of hematoma, and
  3. Extradural hematoma (EDH), also called an epidural hematoma is a collection of blood from the arteries between the inner surface of the skull and the dura.
