Experienced Representation For Victims Of Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain injuries have a profound effect, from the simplest activities and enjoyments of life to the ability to earn a living and participate in family life. If your family member has suffered a brain injury, you need a lawyer who knows how to translate that impact into an appropriate award for compensation.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Mark Maritote has a solid record of verdicts and settlements for catastrophic injuries. This includes brain injury from physical trauma, such as auto accidents, pedestrians hit by cars, or falls from heights. We have also handled anoxic/hypoxic brain injuries arising from medical malpractice such as anesthesia errors and birth injuries, or from near-drownings.

Every person is affected differently, depending on the region of the brain and the degree of trauma. This may range from lingering post-concussion syndrome to profound brain damage requiring 24-hour nursing care. We document our client's symptoms and side effects, such as:

  • Memory loss and inability to concentrate
  • Severe cognitive impairment
  • Problems with speech and communication
  • Problems with balance and coordination
  • Chronic headaches or impaired vision
  • Mood swings and outbursts
  • Personality change

Mr. Maritote then portrays to the insurance adjusters, defense lawyers or Illinois jury members the tangible impact — not only the economic loss but also the psychological and emotional toll. We pursue damages for pain and suffering and permanent disabilities, in addition to coverage of ongoing medical care and loss of earning capacity.
