Vancouver Brain Injury Lawyers | BC Personal Injury Lawyers

Brain injuries can result from a variety of accidents, especially vehicle collisions, falls and assaults. These are some of the most catastrophic injuries that anyone can ever experience and are often highly challenging to diagnose. Brain injuries have life-altering implications, as rehabilitation is often very slow. Furthermore, a complete recovery is often not possible, requiring long-term medical care. In addition to affecting the victim’s daily life, brain injuries also have the potential to cause major personality changes.

However, not all brain injuries have such obvious symptoms, so the extent of an injury may not be apparent for days or even weeks after the accident. These injuries can be particularly difficult to treat since the injury occurred some time ago. In these cases, a complete recovery is less likely due to the delay in diagnosis and treatment. It’s, therefore, crucial to obtain representation from a brain injury lawyer in British Columbia as quickly as possible after an accident.

Vancouver Brain Injury Causes

A brain injury typically occurs when the victim’s head strikes a solid object, often resulting in a skull fracture. In these cases, brain injury can be relatively easy to diagnose. However, brain injury can also be the result of the brain striking the inside of the skull. This type of brain injury can occur even in the absence of significant damage to the skull, making them more difficult to diagnose.

Closed head injuries require prompt medical attention, despite the lack of immediate symptoms. It’s also important to document everything that happened in the accident including obtaining information from the other people involved and any witnesses. Many people carry smartphones with camera functions these days, so it’s often possible to take pictures of the scene and vehicles immediately following the accident.

Brain Injury Symptoms

The brain’s role in controlling neurological functions means that the symptoms of brain injuries are highly variable. While the symptoms of brain injuries can be immediately apparent, this isn’t always the case. Severe injuries can cause subtle symptoms that take time to manifest. This range of variability means that the most experienced Vancouver brain injury lawyer will evaluate each case individually, rather than relying on a fixed procedure.

The mildest signs of a head injury include headaches, dizziness, insomnia, while more severe signs include memory loss, speech difficulties and paralysis. The most common symptoms shown in a brain imaging scan include skull fractures, concussions and contusions. Anyone involved in an accident in which they may have hit their head should monitor their condition closely and report any concerns to their physician.

Post-Accident Recovery

The great impact a brain injury can have means you should never take them lightly following an accident. Some people who receive brain injuries are never able to fully recover, even with prompt diagnosis and treatment. Our brain injury Vancouver lawyers will work hard to determine the full scope of your brain injury and recover the compensation you need to receive proper medical care.

Pay close attention to my symptoms such as headache, which could indicate a serious injury. It’s also important for family members to monitor an accident victim for any changes in conditions, especially when they get worse. These changes may include emotional and personality changes, as well as physical symptoms.

Compensation

Gathering information as quickly as possible is one of the best things you can do to protect yourself after an accident. This information can include witness statements, photographs of the crime scene, police reports and medical records. Prompt action is especially important in cases involving brain injuries, where medical bills can be extremely high.

Our personal injury lawyers in Vancouver are highly experienced at helping people cope with the life changes that can result from a brain injury. They understand this can affect your life in many ways, including the need to estimate future medical bills. This process is particularly challenging for brain injuries due to their broad range of symptoms, making an attorney’s expertise particularly important in these cases.

Some brain injuries may render the victim incapable of communication. These cases may require friends or family members to reach out to a lawyer directly in order for a victim to recover the compensation needed to cover long-term medical expenses. Our Vancouver brain injury lawyers understand the many ways in which a brain injury can change the victim’s life and will keep this in mind when they work on a case.
