A brain injury does not always occur from a blow to the head

Each year, numerous people here in Illinois and across the country suffer from brain injuries. The cause varies from person to person, but most people believe that a blow to the head, as in a car accident, a fall or something similar, causes a brain injury. However, a person can suffer brain damage without being struck in the head.

Jury agrees that child suffered brain injury due to negligence

Illinois readers might have seen that a family in another state was recently awarded nearly $30 million in a medical malpractice case. The family of a now 11-year-old girl filed a lawsuit on her behalf alleging that she suffered irreversible damage to her brain due to the negligence of the doctors attending her birth.
