Brain Injury Legal Issues
“As the father of a brain injury survivor and a volunteer on various committees within the brain injury community, it has become abundantly clear to me that survivors receive better benefits and support when they have access to proper legal counsel. Only a lawyer with experience in brain injury law will understand the true needs and costs involved in supporting the survivor throughout their lives, and will have the knowledge and expertise needed to secure available funding.” – Mike Rossiter
Maximize Your Brain Injury Claim With Top BC Brain Injury Lawyers
Whether you’re dealing with a brain injury as a result of medical malpractice, professional negligence, car accident, assault, or other accident, our top BC brain injury lawyers can guide you through the complex brain injury legal issues and help maximize your claim.
The trouble with traumatic brain injuries is that symptoms aren’t always immediately obvious. Sometimes issues caused by brain injuries are difficult to detect in medical tests, or may not show up at all. But when repercussions start to emerge days, weeks, or even months later, brain injury survivors may be faced with a flood of medical costs, and find they’ve settled for less compensation than they need to pay for their future care.
It’s in your best interest to consult a brain injury lawyer immediately following an accident to learn your rights, understand signs to look for and what future care you may possibly need.
With 35 years of experience, Brain & Injury Law are the leading western Canadian law firm in the highly specialized area of brain and neurological injuries. We’re recognized as a leader in our industry, having successfully handled hundreds of brain and personal injury cases throughout British Columbia.
Whether it means handling your ICBC claim for you, prosecuting a medical malpractice action or otherwise holding negligent parties accountable and battling insurance companies who do not have your best interest in mind – we are not afraid of doing what it takes to get your life back on track.
If we believe you have a valid brain injury case, you will not be asked to pay us a cent upfront for legal or medical expenses. Our lawyers only get paid when your case is finished, in or outside a court of law.
Time Limitations Apply to Brain Injury Claims
If a brain injury claim is necessary, it is essential that evidence be collected as soon as possible. Our BC brain injury lawyers will investigate the facts and advise you about your rights to compensation. In addition to motor vehicle accident injuries, people who have brain injuries from violence, falls, work and sporting accidents, or medical malpractice can also receive compensation. You may also have a right to other insurance benefits.
Do not assume that you or your loved one is “at fault” and that no compensation is owing simply because ICBC or an insurance adjuster says so. Get legal advice from an experienced brain injury lawyer acting on your behalf before assuming that compensation will not be paid.
Let us guide you through this difficult time. The sooner you get in touch with our brain injury attorneys in Vancouver or Victoria, the sooner we can connect you with the support you need, and gather crucial information for the litigation and rehabilitation process. We understand the complexity of brain injury cases and will fight for compensation you are owed.
