Traumatic Brain Injuries

These Types Of Injures Often Result In Permanent Damage

Our brains control every action our bodies take, from commanding the muscles in your fingers to tie up your shoelaces to making sure that our lungs keep cycling air even when we do not realize that it’s happening. Despite protection from our skulls, our brains are incredibly fragile. Sometimes, slight bumps can cause complications that impede our ability to function, and more severe impacts can cause serious and potentially irreversible damage. The most severe of these injures, known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), can permanently affect the signals our brains send out and change the way we function, interact with, and perceive the world.

    Since 1993 when we first opened the doors of our law practice, Power Rogers & Smith has handled some of the largest personal injury cases for plaintiffs in the state of Illinois – and won. With our experience, we aren’t afraid to stand up to large corporations and insurance companies in court.

These results include many record-setting and regulation-changing outcomes as well, including a $100 million settlement for victims of a trucking accident – Illinois’ largest injury award to a single family.

  • Contingency Fee

    Victims of tragic and life-altering accidents are suffering – physically, emotionally, and financially. We take the financial burden off victims by working on a contingent fee. This means that you do not pay unless/until we secure a financial recovery for you. You focus on healing. We’ll take care of the rest.

Common Injury Questions

  • When Should I Retain an Attorney?

    A: Retaining an attorney may be the first step toward full and just compensation for your damages. While you are not legally obligated to obtain legal representation, we advise that you speak with an attorney about your case at your earliest convenience.

  • Who is Responsible for My Medical Bills?

    A: If a negligent property owner is responsible for your injuries, you may be able to get compensation for any medical bills associated with your accident.

  • Will My Case Go to Court?

    A: In some cases, your injury case may be held out of court if the insurance company offers an agreeable settlement. If a settlement isn’t agreed upon, a skilled attorney will be able to represent you in a court of law.
