    The insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying you the money that you need. That is how they stay in business. They use a variety of tactics to accomplish this. They may offer you a sum that is far below what you should receive. They may try to deny your claim outright, or they may delay the process until they have worn you down.Too many people accept far less than they should receive, fearing that if they do not take the first offer they will get nothing. In most cases, once you take that offer you can no longer pursue further compensation, even if you deserve it.Even if you do not plan to sue, you immediately gain an advantage by letting your insurance company know that you are working with an attorney. Never sign anything without showing it to an attorney first.

  Living with TBI

The outward signs of TBI are not always clear and visible. Symptoms can be elusive, and most TBI survivors have good and bad days. This is confusing to victims and their loved ones. It can make it impossible to hold down a job, even when the good days are very good.

Radical personality changes, unexplainable emotional outbursts, and even violent blackouts can be frightening for TBI survivors and those around them. It is even more frightening when TBI has gone undiagnosed.

More than half of all TBI survivors will develop epilepsy, putting them at risk for more accidents and injuries.

TBI can also affect your ability to concentrate and your memory. Some of these problems can be offset by learning coping skills. Many people get back to a normal way of life by implementing elaborate reminder systems.

No Brain Injury Is Mild

If you have been told that you suffered a “mild” brain injury, do not be misled. When the term “mild” is used it is referring to the rating on the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale measures the initial assault on the brain and basically tells you how long you were out. It has nothing to do with the severity of the long-term damage to your brain. Even a “mild” brain injury can have devastating long-term consequences.

If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury, please contact the experienced Chicago brain injury lawyers at Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd., serving the Chicago, Illinois area.
