Traumatic Brain Injuries


If a sudden, traumatic force causes a person’s brain to collide with the interior of their skull, they could develop traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Many people sustain TBIs during motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall accidents, or other scenarios involving trauma to the head. 

Depending on the injury’s severity, accident victims who have sustained TBIs can face physical, cognitive, emotional, and financial challenges for the rest of their lives. TBIs can have negative effects on all areas of an injured accident survivor’s life. 

Because of the physical and cognitive side effects often associated with severe TBIs, many injured accident survivors find it impossible to continue performing the duties of their jobs. This inability to continue working and earning the wages to which they had become accustomed before their injurious accident can have a significant economic impact on an injured accident victim’s life.

The economic cost of TBIs is, perhaps, only equaled by the devastating human cost these types of injuries can have. Living with a TBI can mean adjusting to drastic physical changes, including vision loss, hearing loss, and dysphagia. Other common side effects include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Loss of balance
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 
  • Difficulty communicating 
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in ears
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Loss of smell, or bad taste in the mouth
  • Slurred speech 
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Mood swings
  • Agitation
  • Loss of sleep, or increased time sleeping 
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Depression 
  • And more

Some injured accident survivors may also experience language difficulties, including trouble speaking, reading or writing, as well as thought processing. Furthermore, cognitive and emotional changes following an accident causing a TBI may lead victims to experience social difficulties. They may have trouble interacting with family members, romantic partners, their social circle, and co-workers.

How an Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer May Be Able to Help

If you sustained a TBI in an accident on someone else’s property, in a motor vehicle collision caused by another driver’s negligence, or in another traumatic event resulting from someone else’s misconduct, our Ontario personal injury lawyers may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance in your pursuit of accountability and compensation. By working with our personal injury lawyers serving all of Ontario, you may be able to file a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence caused you to sustain compensable injuries. As a result of legal action, you may be able to recover the compensation you rightfully deserve. 

Our Ontario personal injury lawyers may also be able to provide you with assistance if your claim for long-term disability (LTD) benefits was denied by your insurance provider. Since medical imaging tests like CT scans or MRIs do not necessarily detect all forms of TBIs, many insurance providers deny LTD claims to policyholders, citing a lack of observable, objective medical evidence as their reasoning.

Many accident survivors who have sustained invisible injuries often face difficulties when submitting claims for LTD benefits. To learn more about how Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you appeal your insurance provider’s unfair determination and to discuss other options for financial recovery that might be available to you, contact our Ontario personal injury lawyers today.
