Unfortunately, brain injuries become the fate of thousands of Canadians each year. Acquired Brain Injuries, also known as Traumatic Brain Injuries, are a type of head injury that results from trauma to the head (i.e. motor vehicle, slip and fall, assault). Brain injuries range from mild, moderate and severe.


  • Concussion
  • Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI
  • Subdural Hematoma
  • Brain Hemorrhage
  • Post Concussion Syndrome
  • Head Injury
  • Brain Damage
  • Anoxic Brain Injury
  • Brain Bleed
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury
  • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy
  • Subdural Hemorrhage
  • Brain Swelling
  • Frontal Lobe Damage

The simple shaking of the brain as may occur during a whiplash-type injury can cause a mild traumatic brain injury. Often the injury is undetectable to others, including physicians using the latest technology. If this is the case, you and your family are likely very frustrated in trying to claim insurance benefits for appropriate treatment of these injuries. We can refer you to highly qualified medical and neuropsychological specialists to accurately diagnose the scope of your brain injury. Once your injury is properly diagnosed, you will be able to obtain the appropriate rehabilitation. We will also advocate for the necessary funding for your rehabilitation from the insurance company.

Brain injuries (of all severities) can prove to be life-changing as everyday life tasks become difficult and you may even require special care and assistance to complete basic tasks such as dressing, grooming, preparation of meals and so on. There may be funding available for this type of care that your brain injury lawyer will explain to you.

Concussions are another form of brain injury that is also commonly suffered in car crashes and can result in post-concussive syndrome. Symptoms of a post-concussive syndrome are often similar to those of mild traumatic brain injury.
