Chicago Attorneys Representing People Nationwide Who Have Suffered From Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range from a mild concussion to a severe incident resulting in a coma, grave long-lasting disabilities or death. Such injuries are typically caused by a blow to the head or an object that penetrates the skull, hitting brain tissue and resulting in temporary or permanent damage. Hypoxic brain injuries also occur in medical contexts and other situations involving oxygen deprivation.
Motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, criminal attacks, sporting events and many other types of devastating accidents and events commonly cause TBI. At Ori Law Group, we understand the impact that such injuries can have on TBI victims and their families who may be affected for weeks, months, years or for life.

Understanding Your Serious Injury Impacting The Brain
Your TBI may affect your quality of life on many levels. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the brain is a complex organ that controls:
- Motor skills
- Vision, touch and other physical capabilities
- Thought, memory and emotions
- Social interactions, concentration and other higher-level abilities
Considering that our brains control “every process that regulates our body,” a brain injury, whether mild or severe, can disrupt any bodily process. Thus, the symptoms of TBI may contain a long list of temporary to permanent disabilities, including physical, sensory and cognitive.
Examples of symptoms resulting from TBI may include:
- Headaches, nausea, fatigue or insomnia
- Slurred speech
- Blurred vision or dizziness
- Learning disabilities, loss of memory or inability to concentrate
- Mood swings, depression, anxiety or agitation
- Unconsciousness or coma
Anyone who suffers a brain injury should seek immediate medical attention to determine the extent of the injury and to pursue timely treatments that may reduce its effects. Injuries may consist of bruising and swelling of the brain, brain bleeding, objects lodged in the brain, and torn brain tissue. When sustaining such injuries, you may need not only immediate medical care but also long-term care and personal assistance to accomplish daily tasks while recovering or on a permanent basis.
