Champaign County Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Rushville brain trauma lawyer

Attorneys for Head Injuries and TBI in Champaign, Springfield, Peoria, and Bloomington

In many cases involving personal injuries, the bodily harm suffered by a victim is obvious. However, there are some situations where injuries may not be as noticeable, or the effects of an injury may not be fully understood right away. Injuries to the brain often fall into this category, and in some cases, a person who has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not experience symptoms until weeks or months after the injury occurred. These types of catastrophic injuries can have a significant effect on a person's quality of life and their overall well-being, and victims will want to work with an attorney to determine how they can receive financial compensation from those who were responsible.

At Kanoski Bresney, our lawyers have been working with injury victims for more than 40 years, and we have recovered over $400 million for our clients. If you have suffered a brain injury, we can work with medical experts to ensure that you understand how it has affected you and your family, and we will help you take the necessary steps to receive payments that will address the damages you have suffered.

Causes and Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Victims may experience brain injuries in a wide variety of situations. Car accidents are some of the most common causes of brain trauma, and victims of motorcycle accidents or pedestrian accidents are especially likely to suffer these types of injuries. Slip and fall accidents, including those that are caused by nursing home negligence, can often result in brain injuries when a person strikes their head on the ground or other objects. Medical malpractice can lead to brain trauma, including in cases involving surgical errors or infections. Workers may also experience brain injuries while they are on the job, including situations such as farm accidents or construction accidents.

The initial symptoms of a brain injury may include headaches, nausea, dizziness, or confusion. In the long term, these injuries can have a serious impact on a person's life, and victims may be affected in a variety of ways, including:

  • A person may suffer from memory loss, they may find it difficult to concentrate on daily activities, or they may have trouble speaking or processing language.
  • Issues related to balance and coordination and sensitivity to light and sound may make it impossible for a person to return to work or perform household tasks.
  • A person may experience mood swings, depression, anxiety, or personality changes, affecting their personal relationships and family life.
  • Chronic headaches, difficulty sleeping, seizures, and other related health issues can cause a person's quality of life to suffer.
  • In the most serious cases, a brain injury may lead to paralysis of certain parts of the body, coma, or wrongful death.
