Peoria IL Brain Injury Lawyer

Leading Peoria, IL Brain Injury Lawyer 


We are not doctors at LeFante Law Offices, P.C., but we lawyers have been helping clients get rightful compensation for their brain injuries long enough to know that its effects can be long-lasting. A Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, as it is called, can lead to long-term physical and psychological effects. However, you are entitled to a settlement if a third party was responsible for your traumatic brain injury. 

The money from the settlement can cover your medical bills, compensate you and pay any lost wages. Not to mention you need to also be compensated for your pain and suffering.

We also happen to know from experience that many of Peoria’s personal injury law firms don’t have the resources to devote to helping people who have suffered catastrophic injuries. However, at LeFante Law Offices, P.C., we have the resources and experience to tackle these and other personal injury cases.

Our brain injury lawyers have been representing clients, aka victims of TBI for over a decade, with a history of helping them successfully receive rightful compensation.

If you or a loved one is a traumatic brain injury victim, then allow us to help by fighting on their behalf.

What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?

Peoria, IL Brain Injury Lawyer A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when there is a sudden impact or jolt to the head. It can also be caused by an object penetrating the skull, consequently damaging the brain. The resulting trauma damages the brain’s structure and function, leading to physical, cognitive, and emotional problems.

TBI can range from mild to severe, but the symptoms and effects may vary depending on the severity and location of the injury. In its mildest form, TBI is often called a concussion, leading to temporary loss of consciousness, confusion, headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Severe TBI, on the other hand, can lead to long-term or permanent cognitive, physical, and behavioral impairments. Victims of such head injuries also may suffer from memory loss, attention deficit, communication problems, and problems moving. Plus, it may lead to mood swings, depression, and anxiety.

TBI can be caused by various accidents, such as falls, car accidents, sports injuries, assaults, and combat injuries. Victims of TBI should seek medical attention and seek prompt treatment to help prevent further damage. Timely medical attention can help reduce many of the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury.


Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are several types of traumatic brain injuries (TBI), which, as mentioned earlier, can vary in severity, and may depend on which part of the brain is affected. Here are some common types of TBI:

Concussion: A concussion is a mild form of TBI typically caused by blunt force trauma to the head or a sudden jolt. Concussions occur and can often lead to temporary loss of consciousness, confusion, dizziness, and other symptoms.

Contusion: A contusion is a bruise on the brain caused when the brain hits a hard object which in most instances is the skull. Contusions can lead to bleeding and swelling of the brain, causing various symptoms to surface depending on the severity and location of the damage.

Penetration head injury: A penetration injury occurs when an object penetrates the skull and damages the brain tissue. It can lead to various symptoms depending on the size and location of the injury.

Diffuse axonal injury: Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) occurs when the brain is rapidly accelerated or decelerated, causing the brain’s nerve fibers to tear. This type of injury is associated with high-speed collisions and can cause extensive damage to the brain.

Coup-contrecoup injury: A coup-contrecoup injury is caused by the brain being struck in one location, which causes it to bounce against the opposite side of the skull. The result is two areas of injury on opposite sides of the brain.

Second-impact syndrome: Second-impact syndrome occurs when a person sustains a second concussion before their first concussion healed. The result is a rapid and severe increase in intracranial pressure, causing brain damage or even death.


How Does Our Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Attorney Help Victims?

Image of a Brain injury ScanWe often say that insurance companies aren’t paid to do the right thing; their job is to make a profit.

That’s why having an experienced Peoria brain injury lawyer in Peoria is so essential.

Here is how our Peoria, IL brain injury lawyer can help you, aka victims of traumatic 

brain injuries:


We advise if you should or shouldn’t accept a settlement for traumatic brain injuries 

Our legal team knows that traumatic brain injuries can adversely affect individuals. The Mayo Clinic has stated that while some symptoms may surface early, others may take up to a week. So, unlike many other types of injuries, a doctor may not instantly be able to determine the extent of your or future brain injuries yet.

That’s why it is essential not to accept the insurance company’s payout before getting a proper prognosis. Having our experienced attorney on your side means that an insurer cannot bully or intimidate you into settling.

We handle all the legal aspects of the case

TBI can often be the root cause of problems with memory, decision-making, and reasoning. Some victims may report mood swings. Insurers know this and may try to take advantage of your situation.

Our seasoned attorneys will take over communications with the adjuster or the insurance company. So you don’t have to worry about emails or phone calls. That way, you can focus on recovering while we pursue maximum compensation. 

Pursue max compensation

We will settle only if the amount being offered is fair. The amount (compensation) is calculated beforehand. We will also consider medical and economic professionals to ensure you get the rightful maximum compensation amount.
