Have you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury?
You may be entitled to compensation if you have suffered a brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. Please consult our personal injury lawyers in Edmonton to learn more about your options with respect to pursuing a claim for your traumatic brain injury (TBI).
A brain injury is often a lifelong chronic problem, with potentially devastating effects. Traumatic brain injuries are usually classified on a scale including mild, moderate, or severe. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI).
Brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose and may not manifest for some time after the accident. Brain injuries can cause changes in a person’s personality and affect their quality of life. You may need specialized care and support for your daily living. Brain injuries can greatly affect a person’s physical and emotional health. You may experience long-term health issues and may require extensive medical treatment during your recovery. A severe TBI will require referrals to medical experts like neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and neurosurgeons. You may also experience financial hardships as the injuries caused by an accident may render you unable to return to work or in need of workplace accommodations. If you or a loved one has suffered brain injury, our personal injury lawyers can help you get compensation.
Because of the nature of brain injuries and the tendency for them to sometimes become more pronounced over time, it is particularly important that you do not sign any insurance company documents before consulting with your lawyer.
