Attorneys Representing Clients Who Suffer Serious, Life-Changing Injuries in Chicago

Injuries often occur without warning, and they can drastically affect a person's life for years to come. Whether they occur because of car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, or other reasons, severe injuries can result in long-term disability, financial problems, and emotional difficulties. When injuries occur because of someone's negligence, victims deserve to receive compensation that addresses the full extent of the damages they have suffered.

The personal injury lawyers of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC are dedicated to pursuing justice for those who have been injured due to others' negligence. We work with our clients to document the full extent of their injuries and the short-term and long-term effects on their lives and their families. This helps us ensure that those responsible for these injuries are held fully accountable.

Receiving Full Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries

Severe injuries not only create immediate pain and suffering and require medical treatment, but their effects can last for years, or even the rest of someone's life. Expensive rehabilitation may be required, and a family may face financial struggles when a person is unable to work while they are recovering. Permanent disability can also occur, diminishing a victim's ability to earn an income, requiring life-long treatment and accommodations, and inflicting stress and emotional pain on an entire family.

The negligent party who caused an injury should be held responsible for these damages, ensuring that a family has the financial resources they need as they work to recover. Victims may be able to pursue compensation in cases involving:

  • Brain injuries - Concussions, infections, improper medical treatment, or conditions such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) can result in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). These injuries can affect a person's long-term health, leading to cognitive impairments, loss of motor skills and coordination, memory loss, erratic and aggressive behavior, and dementia.
  • Spine injuries - Multiple surgeries and ongoing rehabilitative care are often required to treat injuries to the back or spinal cord, and victims often struggle with a great deal of pain. Some more severe spinal injuries can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia.
  • Amputations - The loss of a limb causes a great deal of physical and emotional pain, and it requires a person to make major adjustments to their life. The costs of prosthetics or other accommodations can often be prohibitive.
  • Burns - Serious burn injuries can be incredibly painful and traumatic, and they can require extensive medical treatment and ongoing care. The disfigurement caused by severe burns can also lead to a great deal of emotional trauma.
  • Fractures - Broken bones can take a long time to heal, and they can affect a person's ability to work and earn an income. More serious fractures, such as those involving the wrist, skull, facial bones, hips, knees, or ankles, can require extensive surgery, and they can result in long-term disability.
