Head and Brain Injury Attorneys in DuPage County and Lake County

There are many work-related situations in which head injuries could occur. At our law firm, we have the tools and resources to help those who have suffered head injuries as the result of:

  • Car and truck accidents while on the job;
  • Falls from heights;
  • Falling objects or equipment;
  • Flying debris caused by explosions;
  • Tight working conditions and overhead dangers; and
  • Slip and fall accidents.

Concussions are among the most common types of head injuries suffered by workplace accident victims. A concussion is a type of mild traumatic brain injury, but the symptoms of a concussion can create many serious challenges for the victim.

Head injuries may also include skull fractures, lacerations to the scalp, and damage to the face, mouth, jaw, teeth, or eyes. Any type of head injury can be serious, with symptoms that may include:

  • Double or blurred vision;
  • Dizziness;
  • Confusion;
  • Excessive fatigue;
  • Nausea;
  • Sensitivity to light or noise; or
  • Dilated pupils.

It is not uncommon for the victim of a head injury to have trouble performing the tasks associated with his or her job. As a result, even a seemingly minor concussion could lead to significant time away from work. In more serious cases, it may be months or years before the victim can return to normal duty, if such a return is even possible.
