Cook County Workplace Head Injury Attorneys

Illinois Work Comp Brain Injury Lawyers

Lawyers for Brain Injuries Under Workers' Compensation in Bensenville and Elmhurst

Regardless of how it happens, a severe head injury could leave you with serious physical or mental limitations. Depending on the severity of your injury, you might never be able to work again. Head injuries that are relatively less serious could still lead to a small fortune in medical costs, rehabilitation, or vocational retraining, not to mention the loss of your income when working is impossible. If your head or brain injury occurred at work, the good news is that you may be entitled to benefits under the workers' compensation laws of the state of Illinois.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, in Bensenville, IL, our experienced workers' compensation attorneys have more than 100 years of combined legal experience that we put to work every day in pursuit of benefits for our clients. We know how devastating a head or brain injury can be. Our team also understands that employers and workers' comp insurance carriers often try to limit their financial exposure by disputing head injury claims or offering quick, lowball settlements to prevent victims from seeking additional benefits. Since opening our doors in 1990, we have helped many injured workers secure the benefits they deserve, and we are ready to do the same for you.

Head and Brain Injuries on the Job in Illinois

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, about three million nonfatal injuries occur in workplaces around the country in an average year. Many of these injuries are to the head and brain of the victims. Head injuries can occur in a wide variety of accidents and under many different dangerous conditions, including but not limited to:

Head and brain injuries can also take many forms. Some are relatively superficial, which means the victim experiences injuries to the scalp or skull, but his or her brain is not harmed. A superficial head injury often requires emergency medical attention to ensure that the brain has not been injured, and the healing process is often long and painful.

Injuries to the brain are especially serious, and there are several kinds of recognized traumatic brain injuries (TBI). A closed head injury, for example, is a TBI in which the brain was injured by an impact or a sudden, violent motion that does not include a break in the skull. A concussion is the most common closed head injury. A penetrating TBI occurs when an object breaks through the skull and enters the brain. This type of brain injury is often deadly, and for those who survive, making a full physical recovery might not be possible.

Getting You the Benefits You Deserve

If you or a loved one suffered a head or brain injury in the course of your employment, the attorneys at Kaiser Hafezi Law are ready to help you obtain the benefits to which the law says you are entitled. We will work closely with your medical team to gain a full understanding of the extent of your injuries and your prognosis for recovery. From there, we will build a case designed to recover compensation for your medical expense and your time away from work. If your injuries have left you partially or totally disabled, we will ensure that your disability is accounted for properly in your workers' comp claim. If you are able to go back to work eventually, but you need to be moved to a new job, you are likely entitled to have the costs of your retraining covered as well. We pledge to do everything possible to get you the resources you need to move forward with your life, no matter how severe your injuries may be.
