Brain Injuries

In the case of personal injuries resulting in brain damage or severe head trauma, the lawyers of Kane Shannon Weiler LLP provide the detailed representation clients require to obtain benefits for their immediate needs as well as their long-term care needs. With offices in Abbotsford, Surrey and South Surrey/White Rock, we represent clients throughout the Fraser Valley.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the most common injuries suffered by those involved in serious motor vehicle accidents. Aside from initial medical treatment, many victims of severe TBIs will sustain long-term brain damage which may require ongoing therapy, rehabilitation or attendant care by the patient's family or a qualified professional.

Our lawyers seek comprehensive coverage for all of our clients' needs, including long-term disability benefits which may be available to assist our clients or their families with ongoing therapy costs, wage loss or attendant care.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries

Even mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs) can result in lifelong conditions which can be difficult to treat. Unlike TBIs, accurately diagnosing MTBIs can prove challenging, even with specialized medical imaging equipment such as MRIs or CT scans. Some of the more common symptoms of an MTBI include:

  • Frequent headaches or migraines
  • Short-term memory loss/absent-mindedness
  • Speech problems
  • Uncoordinated movement/lack of muscle control
  • Emotional outbursts or severe swing in mood

We will engage the appropriate experts specializing in MTBIs to ensure our clients receive a proper medical assessment. We will then work to ensure access to treatments such as occupational therapy or speech pathology are included within the final settlement.
