A brain injury can have a devastating effect on the quality of one’s life. Knowledgeable of this, the Barrie brain injury lawyers at Rastin Law empathize with your situation. Our legal team in Ontario works tirelessly and aggressively to ensure that our clients receive the maximum possible compensation and benefits rightfully owed to them.
Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is a condition that occurs as a result of having traumatic external mechanical force applied to the brain or skull. It can possibly lead to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness. However, not all brain injuries are caused by trauma. Some are caused by an insufficient flow of oxygen (hypoxia/anoxia) resulting from drowning, strangulation, or the use of particular medications. Brain injuries can range from being very mild to catastrophic. Our Barrie brain injury lawyers advocate for clients suffering from both the mildest and severest of cases as we believe that all brain injury cases should be treated with an equal amount of attention and importance.
Potential Impact of Head Trauma
Brain injuries can have short term as well as long term effects such as, but not limited to: difficulties in understanding and expressing language, depression/anxiety, memory loss (visual and non-visual memory deficits), decreased or complete loss of control of a portion of the body, impaired thinking skills, confusion, fatigue, and decreased alertness and concentration.
Brain injuries are irreversible and the range of effects they cause can make it difficult for a person to continue living a normal life. Many brain injury lawyers fail to take into consideration these further consequences an individual with a brain injury may face. Brain injuries may result in ones inability to become employed or re-employed and often place a strain on relationships (family, intimate, colleague), and may lead to social isolation.
