Chicago Brain Injury Lawyer
Representing Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries
At Power Rogers, we make it our job to handle your most critical issues. When your future is on the line, our attorneys can step in to ensure that justice is served and you receive fair compensation. Injuries to the brain are among the most devastating types of injuries. In many cases, people are never the same after accidents resulting in brain damage. Our brains control every action our bodies take, from commanding the muscles in your fingers 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. If someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused your brain injury, contact Power Rogers today.

We once handled a brain injury case in which the hospital failed to properly administer oxygen or intubate and give oxygen to a 54-year-old woman.
