Brain injuries pose special legal challenges because they are often not outwardly visible. We are experienced in gathering the right type of medical evidence in order to support your case.
A traumatic brain injury can occur when an external force injures the brain and impacts your ability to function properly. Brain injuries can cause a variety of symptoms and disability and can pose extreme difficulties for victims, and their family and friends because they are difficult to diagnose and treat.
The impact of a brain injury may not appear right away but may become more apparent as time goes on. Brain injuries can lead to paralysis, seizures, blindness, memory loss, impaired communication skills, a change in emotional behavior and other disabilities. Brain injuries can have a severe impact on one's quality of life, impacting relationships, occupation and income, as well as one's independence.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries occur when a type of trauma impacts the spine, and causes a loss of function to the body. Injuries can range from various degrees to pain to paralysis and can lead to considerable pain, suffering and financial loss. A spinal cord injury will usually involve the swelling of a spinal cord which can affect the entire body. The extent of the injury is often related directly to where the spinal cord is affected.
Treatments, as well as the extensive care and physical therapy needed are quite expensive. It is important to choose a good rehabilitation program in order to help the injured individual recover from their injury. Let us help you get compensation for these treatments.
You may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, loss of income and past and future care costs. Your family members may be entitled to a claim under the Family Law Act for expenses they incurred, loss of income, as well as for loss of guidance, care and companionship.
Paralysis may occur as a result of a brain or spinal cord injury. People who suffer from paralysis may lose sensation in and use of their arms and legs and may also suffer from a "pin and needles" sensation, involuntary muscle contractions, phantom limb pains, among other symptoms.
This can lead to a frustrating loss of independence, mobility and income. If you are suffering from paralysis due to the fault of others, our team can manage all the legal aspects of your claim so you can focus on your recovery.
