Toronto Head Injury Lawyer Helps you Get Back on your Feet

Back to Home
A small knock to the head or a concussion can have long-lasting effects on the way you live. From mild trauma to severe damage, a head injury lawyer will advise you on your case so that you can focus on your recovery.
 

In the Case of Head Injury

 
Head injury is any trauma to the head that leads to injury of the scalp, skull or brain. According to the Brain Injury Society of Toronto, 50,000 Canadians sustain brain injuries each year and incidence rates are rising.
 
Head injuries present challenges for accident victims as well as anyone else close to them. Common causes of a head injury include:
  • traffic accidents;
  • work-related accidents;
  • Bicycle accidents
  • slip and falls.
A head injury can cause a host of issues including:
  • memory loss;
  • headaches;
  • loss of concentration;
  • amnesia.
More serious head injuries can result in prolonged or irreversible brain damage and may cause:
  • seizures;
  • paralysis;
  • personality changes;
  • hearing loss.
A head injury affects a person’s every interaction with the world and maintaining the same life before the head injury can be challenging. The insurance system can be confusing and the selection of a lawyer with expertise in personal injury, specifically head injury, is one of the most important decisions that victims and their families will make following an accident. A qualified personal injury lawyer in addition to possessing superior legal training in head injury advocacy will also have knowledge in the medical, rehabilitation and special needs of those who have sustained a head injury.
 

Legal Help for Head Injuries

 
The first 12-18 months following the injury are the most critical when it comes to recovery. Often head injuries change the lives of those who suffer the injury and the lives of their families and friends – emotionally, physically and financially. If you have sustained a head injury, a personal injury lawyer should be contacted immediately following your accident. A head injury lawyer will:
  • advise you on the best course of action;
  • help you apply for the right benefits;
  • advocate on your behalf with hospitals, insurance companies and other involved parties;
  • help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Unlike other types of injuries, the long term effects of head injuries generally cannot be determined right away. The injury may also result in the inability to work short term, long term or even permanently, leaving you with an enormous financial burden. Getting the compensation you are entitled to after sustaining a head injury is important – especially when the future is unknown and that is where a head injury lawyer comes in.

When You Suspect Injury, Make an Appointment With a Personal Injury Attorney as Soon as Possible

After any accident where you even suspect you may have received a brain or head injury, you need to make an appointment with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Do not wait for symptoms to start showing before looking into filing an accident benefits claim. Many times, deadlines apply to claims proceedings that could prevent you from receiving your fair compensation if you miss them. An experienced head injury lawyer will be familiar with all of the ins and outs of claims filing and will be able to inform and guide you to maximize your chances of success. Secondly, do not speak or correspond with any insurance company representative until you’ve sought professional advice about your accident benefits claim case. Knowing the right things to say and questions to answer will put you in a much better position to talk with confidence to the person representing the company that will hopefully be paying out every penny of compensation to which you are rightly entitled. Finally, remember that your personal injury lawyer is there to help you. Be honest and open with them, and they will lend their years of experience and honed expertise to your case.
