Toronto Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer


Traumatic brain injury, also called TBI, occurs when the brain is injured by a sudden force or trauma. The brain can be driven into the side of the skull by a sudden blow, or by the force of shaking or “whiplash”. In either case, the brain can suffer bruising and swelling, and in some cases the impact will be sufficient to tear blood vessels in the brain, causing intracranial bleeding. In these types of cases, it is important to consult with a Toronto traumatic brain injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your case and file an injury claim. Our Toronto personal injury lawyers can assist in compiling evidence on your behalf and ensuring you know what to expect at each step of the legal process.

Impact of a TBI

If the trauma results in damage to the skull itself, such as a crack or break, the trauma is considered a penetrating head injury. More difficult to diagnose are closed head injuries, in which the brain is injured but the skull remains undamaged. This can occur from a blow or impact, or from severe back-and-forth shaking, such as whiplash. Babies and small children can suffer such injuries from being shaken, the so-called “shaken baby syndrome”.

In any case of closed head TBI, it is necessary to study the symptoms that follow the accident in order to diagnose the condition. Anyone who has sustained a blow to the head or whiplash-like injuries should be evaluated by a medical professional to determine if TBI has taken place. In many cases, the symptoms may be so slight as to escape the victim’s notice, but if treatment is not available, further injury can develop. Often the symptoms may be delayed for many hours until swelling in the brain reaches a point that if affects the victim.

Severity

TBI can cause serious, life-threatening events and can result in permanent irreversible damage to the brain. It can lead to paralysis, seizures, blindness, memory loss, impaired communication skills, and many other disabilities. Symptoms may be as obvious as coma or as subtle as a change in emotional behavior. TBI can have a profound effect on quality of life, including the inability to work, inability to interact socially and within the family, loss of normal body skills, etc. For these reasons, anyone who suffers this type of injury due to another person should consult with a Traumatic brain injury lawyer in Toronto
