Brain Injury


Do You Need a Brain Injury Lawyer?

 

What Is a Brain Injury?

The brain can be hurt any time an injury or impact causes the brain to hit the inside of the skull, as frequently happens in car accidents when the head is stopped while still in motion. The skull doesn’t have to be fractured or penetrated for a brain injury to occur. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be present even without visible exterior wounds to the head. The brain can also be injured in situations that don’t involve an impact, such as when the brain suffers a loss of blood or restricted oxygen.

Common Signs of Brain Injury

If you’ve suffered a blow to the head, or been in a situation where you’ve experienced blood loss in the brain or restricted oxygen, you may notice symptoms of a brain injury like:

  • Loss of memory
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor judgment
  • Head or neck pain
  • Confusion
  • Personality changes
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Low energy
  • Lack of balance
  • Reduced coordination
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Difficulty reading or speaking
  • Significant changes to sleep patterns

If you’ve suffered a brain injury in Illinois and need brain damage lawyers, contact LeFante Law Offices to schedule a free consultation.

Types of Brain Injury

Brain injuries can be mild, moderate, or severe. In general, we see four major types of brain injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): This type of injury results from being hit in the head. Concussions, hematoma, and edema are all examples of TBI.
  • Acquired brain injury (ABI): When a brain injury happens because of an internal event, like blood or oxygen loss, it’s called an ABI. This can happen due to incidents like drowning, suffocation, or anesthesia errors.
  • Hypoxic brain injury: Restriction of oxygen to the brain results in hypoxia. Lack of sufficient oxygen flow to the brain destroys brain cells and negatively affects brain function.
  • Anoxic brain injury: This type of injury also occurs as a result of reduced oxygen in the brain. It’s a severe form of hypoxia.

No matter what type of brain injury you’ve experienced, working with a knowledgeable head injury lawyer is essential to protect your rights and receive just compensation.

How Traumatic Brain Injury Claims Work

Brain injuries can cause life-altering changes. If you’ve suffered a brain injury, you may be entitled to compensation for economic losses like medical bills, lost wages, and lost career opportunities. Retaining a qualified brain injury lawyer is a necessary step if you want to pursue legal action to receive compensation as a result of a TBI.

Who Is Liable for a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Determining who is liable for a TBI involves looking at all the factors surrounding the accident. A thorough investigation usually is required to assess who may be responsible. To hold the responsible parties accountable, hiring a brain injury lawyer is your best course of action.

Charles Beall

Professional. Thorough. Knowledgeable. There are other adjectives to describe the work Mr. LeFante and his team did for me. I was “in contract” to buy a house which passed inspection but failed the “final walk-through.” Mr. LeFante’s efforts saved us from being stuck in a lemon of a home. Dear reader, I hope you will… Read more “Charles Beall”
