Brain Trauma in Car Accidents

Chicago Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) does not keep formal records of specific injuries resulting from auto accidents, it is estimated that half of all brain injury victims in the U.S. were injured in car accidents. Considering the sheer force of an impact between two vehicles or between a vehicle and a pedestrian, and the millions of accidents on U.S. roads every year, such estimates may not be surprising. What is surprising, however, is the ferocity with which insurance companies work to minimize the amount of compensation paid out to brain injury victims and their families.

At Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, we have represented victims of traumatic brain injury (TBI) for more than 40 years. In these and all other personal injury cases, we place our clients' health above all else. When someone comes to us with a complex head injury, we can set him or her up with head injury specialists who are reputable, skilled and proven. Not all hospitals and care facilities are created equal. Over the years, we have learned what to look for in medical providers and can counsel you accordingly. Once health concerns are documented and treatment is under way, our work building a legal claim begins.
