Neurological Injuries

People who are involved in bicycle accidents, motor vehicle collisions, slips and falls from great heights, motorcycle accidents, and other unpredictable circumstances run the risk of sustaining traumatic neurological injuries. Unlike genetic neurological disorders, acute neurological injuries are caused by physical trauma.

Many neurological injuries are the result of trauma to an accident victim’s head, resulting in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Depending on their level of severity, TBIs can have profound, all-encompassing effects on an accident survivor’s personal, professional, and social life. In addition to the physical effects arising from these forms of brain damage– which can include persistent headaches, vision and hearing loss, and dysphagia– TBIs often cause afflicted individuals to experience drastic cognitive and behavioural changes. Neurological injuries, therefore, can adversely impact  the way affected accident survivors think and act. Common examples of this include:

  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty communicating 
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Trouble processing information
  • Mood swings
  • Agitation
  • And more

While neurological injuries often impact the brain and its functions, they can also include traumatic injuries of the spinal cord, skull, and peripheral nerves. Neurological injuries can also affect other areas of the body, including muscles, organs, bones, and blood vessels. Some common physical symptoms of neurological injuries include:

  • Convulsions
  • Muscle spasms
  • Spasticity 
  • Weakening of muscles
  • Difficulty breathing
  • And more

If you were injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and are suffering from neurological injuries as a result, consider booking a free initial consultation with our Ontario personal injury lawyers. Depending on the manner in which your neurological injuries were sustained and the impact they have had on your overall quality of life, you might be entitled to compensation. To learn more, call 1-800-JUSTICE.

The Financial Cost of Neurological Injuries 

According to the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, lifetime treatment costs for people who have sustained TBIs can be anywhere between $600,000 – $1.8 million. However, this figure only takes into consideration costs related to medical care. The truth of the matter is that many people suffering from neurological injuries find it impossible to continue working within their chosen professions, and often incur losses of up to 10 times the cost of their medical care in lost wages and reduced future earning capabilities. 

If your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party may be liable for damages you have incurred as a result. These damages could be economic and non-economic in nature, depending on the severity of your injuries. By working with our personal injury lawyers serving Ontario, you may be able to recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Attendant Care
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • And possibly more
