How an Ontario Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help

Going up against insurance companies as a victim with a serious injury from a preventable accident is not easy. The at-fault party’s insurance company may try to minimize your payout to protect its own profits. Hiring an attorney is the most effective way to protect your rights and pursue the financial compensation that you need for a brain injury, including the price of future necessary medical costs.

An experienced brain injury lawyer in Ontario can handle every aspect of your case, including an extensive investigation into the incident, the collection of key evidence, interviews with eyewitnesses, the hiring of medical experts and accident reconstruction specialists, and settlement negotiations with an insurance claims adjuster. Your lawyer will help you navigate the challenges of your case with care, compassion and expertise.

Time Limit to File a Brain Injury Claim

If you wish to pursue financial compensation for a traumatic brain injury in Ontario, you must file your claims paperwork before California’s deadline. The legal time limit or statute of limitations on the average personal injury case in California is two years from the date of the accident.

In a case of delayed injury discovery – such as with hidden brain injury symptoms – the victim will have two years from the date of reasonable discovery to file. Certain cases may have extended or reduced filing deadlines for special circumstances. Contact an attorney right away about your specific time limit. If you wait too long, the courts could bar you from filing a claim.

What Commonly Causes Brain Injuries in Ontario?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can arise in many scenarios. If a victim’s head suffers an impact, such as a bump or blow, the brain could shift and collide with the inside of the skull. This can inflict bruising, bleeding, swelling and other injuries that can harm the brain’s cells.

A variety of accidents can result in brain injuries, such as:

Most brain injuries are preventable and caused by human errors, such as a distracted driver causing a car accident. If you believe your TBI was caused by someone else’s negligence, or the failure to use proper care, you may be able to recover financial compensation.

Types of Compensation You May Recover

Holding one or more parties accountable for your brain injury could result in financial compensation, or damages, awarded to reimburse you for related costs and losses. A civil claim could lead to the recovery of various economic and noneconomic damages.

Examples include:

  • Medical care and required treatments
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Prescription medications
  • Future estimated medical costs
  • Lost income and employment benefits
  • Lost capacity to earn due to a permanent disability
  • Loss of enjoyment or quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

If a loved one passed away from a fatal brain injury, your family may be eligible for wrongful death damages. These can cover reasonable funeral and burial costs, lost wages, and inheritance. Discuss the potential value of your brain injury case with our attorneys before accepting a settlement.

How Liability Is Determined

In a brain injury case in Ontario, the liable or legally responsible party depends on who or what caused the harmful incident or event. The process of determining liability generally involves an in-depth investigation to assess negligence. Negligence consists of four elements: duty of care, breach of duty, causation and damages.

The person or party that is held liable must have owed the injured victim a legal responsibility to act with ordinary care and violated or fell short of this duty through a negligent act or omission. This has to be the actual or proximate cause of the victim’s brain injury. Finally, the victim must have proof of compensable damages from the event, such as medical bills.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

Many individuals and entities can potentially be held liable in a brain injury case in Ontario. Common examples include motor vehicle drivers, trucking companies, product manufacturers, companies or employers, property owners, health care providers, and government agencies. It is possible to hold more than one party responsible for a brain injury if multiple parties contributed to the incident. An attorney can help you determine negligence and liability in your case.
