Traumatic Brain Injury

A head injury is unfortunately a common result of a motor vehicle collision. In addition to the shock and devastation of the accident, it may take months or even years before the extent of a brain injury is fully known and understood. Recovery can therefore be a long and trying process.

At Gantzert Law, we not only help brain injury victims get appropriate compensation for their injuries; we link our clients to the appropriate medical professionals who can aid their recovery. Our Vancouver brain injury lawyer is committed to helping our clients and their families secure the supports they need for the short and long terms.

Understanding the Range of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can take many forms and is more common than is generally known. TBI occurs when there is an impact of the brain with the inside of the skull. The extent of severity of TBI will fall within a range into one of the following categories:

  • Concussion, symptoms of which include regular, debilitating headaches and post-concussion syndrome
  • Mild traumatic brain injury, which can affect the ability to make rational decisions
  • Moderate traumatic brain injury, which can affect memory, mathematical and language skills, as well as cause depression and difficulties in personal relationships
  • Severe traumatic brain injury, where the patient can be in a state of incapacitation

TBI can result from an impact of the head against the steering wheel, air bag, head rest or window during a motor vehicle collision.

Surrey Head Injury Lawyer

When you meet with our law firm, we can assess what impact may have caused your injury symptoms and determine if we can take legal steps to help you recover medically. In particular, we may be able to arrange for private MRIs and neuropsychological testing in order to properly identify and diagnose the TBI so intervention can be made early.

As legal counsel, we will also distinguish between the medical and legal issues in your case and be upfront about how we are able to help you in your case. In particular, we will assess how we can help you receive compensation for long-term medical costs and employment loss.
