Toronto Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

When you suffer from a traumatic brain injury, it may change your entire life. Your ability to work, take care of yourself — even your personality — may change in an instant.A traumatic brain injury may be one of the most devastating personal injuries you can suffer. It can profoundly affect your:

  • Senses, such as your sight or hearing
  • Ability to learn
  • Ability to remember
  • Ability to read, write or speak
  • Fine motor skills
  • Ability to control your emotions

Whether it is caused by a motor vehicle accident, bicycle accident, sports accident or slip-and-fall, a brain injury can take a long time to resolve. It is often not easy to determine, even months after an accident, how well you will recover or the long-term effects of your injury on your work, marriage, and family.

Our Richmond Hill and Oakville lawyers for Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) have access to medical professionals who can assess your injuries and help you understand the changes they may have on your life. We can also contact accountants and other financial experts to assess the potential economic damage your injury may cause for your lifetime. Although many insurance companies want to settle quickly, before the damage is fully assessed, we are not afraid to work with you and wait until it is clear to you and your family exactly how much compensation you will need.

Our medical professionals will also help classify your injuries as catastrophic if they are particularly severe. If your injury is declared catastrophic, that means that under Ontario’s no-fault insurance law, you may get up to $2.5 to $3.5 million in compensation for your Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (“SABS”) losses. This includes lifelong changes to your ability to work, take care of yourself and your family, and continue to live your life as it was before the accident.
