Skull Fracture

Illinois Facial Trauma Attorneys – Tenaciously Pursuing Compensation for Traffic Collision Victims

When you are struck by a drunk driver or a motorist texting on a cell phone, you can suffer severe injuries especially if your head or face suffer trauma. If the force of impact causes you to strike your head against the steering wheel, dashboard, windshield, or another hard surface inside the vehicle, you might experience a skull fracture or facial injuries. These types of injuries often have a lifelong impact because they can cause brain damage, disfigurement, permanent disability, and wrongful death. While your priority in this situation will be obtaining medical treatment, the costs associated with traumatic brain injuries and facial reconstruction can force car accident victims to the brink of bankruptcy particularly when they are unable to continue their occupation.

Our Chicago car accident lawyers recognize the difficult physical, emotional, and financial challenges associated with suffering a skull fracture or severe facial disfigurement. At Stein & Shulman, LLC, we provide clients with a thorough investigation of the facts, up to the minute legal expertise, extensive litigation resources, persuasive advocacy, and over 45 years of experience representing injury victims. Because our law firm is committed to providing exemplary legal services, our attorneys have recovered over $40 million for our clients.

Skull Fractures Suffered in Auto Accidents

If your skull experiences penetration by a foreign object or strikes a hard service inside the interior of your vehicle, this type of impact can cause a fractured skull and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Vehicle occupants who suffer a TBI often endure severe impairment, including the following:

  • Impaired cognitive functioning
  • Altered mood and personality
  • Loss of memory
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Lack of mobility
  • Negatively impacted judgment and decision-making
  • Communication limitations

These accident consequences can prevent you from continuing in your occupation, impair your ability to care for your family, interfere with your normal daily activities, prevent you from earning a living, and steal your self-sufficiency. Our Cook County skull fracture lawyers pursue the fullest compensation for victims who suffer brain injuries so that they can obtain the best medical care, rehabilitative treatment, and supportive care.

Facial Trauma in Illinois Traffic Collisions

Motor vehicle collisions constitute the most common cause of serious cosmetic injuries and facial fractures. Facial injuries can be caused by shattered glass, the dashboard, windshield, side windows, the steering wheel, airbags, or car seats. Facial injuries might include:

  • Broken jaws
  • Scrapes
  • Bruises
  • Severe lacerations
  • Blindness (vision loss)
  • Fractures
  • Nerve damage
  • Serious dental injuries

While severe facial injuries adversely impact all vehicle occupants, women often feel the impact of such injuries the most intensely because of the focus our culture places on physical beauty and youth. Permanent changes in a woman’s appearance can leave deep psychological scars and adversely affect self-esteem.
