Hundreds of Canadians suffer brain injuries every day. Most people recover, but some people unfortunately go on to suffer long-term, life-altering symptoms.
If you have suffered a brain injury due to a car accident, slip or trip and fall or someone’s carelessness or negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation. Call Preszler Law for a free case evaluation.
Brain injuries are one of the most misunderstood and undiagnosed injuries in Canada. Brain injuries are often called “invisible injuries” because injured people often appear fine or the same as they did before yet still have significant disabilities. In recent years, medical studies have shown that significant long-term consequences arise from concussions and other minor brain injuries at a much greater rate than previously known.
Many brain injuries go undiagnosed due to a lack of awareness or attention to the tell-tale signs and symptoms. Most people don’t know that you do not need to hit your head or lose consciousness in order to suffer a concussion or brain injury; merely the force of your head quickly moving back and forth in a car accident, for example, can cause your brain hit the inside of your skull and suffer an injury.
Unfortunately, people with undiagnosed brain injuries or concussions generally do not get the treatment they need. Common symptoms of a brain injury or concussion include:
The impacts of a brain injury can vary from slight to devastating. Even the minor effects of a brain injury can cause major impairments. Small changes in memory, personality or cognitive functioning can make a large difference in someone’s work or social life, impacting their relationships and costing them significant amounts of income throughout their life. Not being able to focus at work can cost someone a promotion. Fatigue or headaches can limit how many hours or overtime someone is able to work.
