Traumatic brain injuries
Contact Us for Information
A serious traumatic brain injury caused by a motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall can be a devastating condition that affects not only the person with the injury, but also their entire family. Even a mild traumatic brain injury can result in significant long-term impairments. From proper diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation, individuals living with brain trauma face many challenges. Families must equally adjust to a new reality, providing support to an individual who may be walking a new path for the remainder of his or her life. The lawyers at Ottawa’s Mann Lawyers assist those with brain injuries and their families: advocating for their right to proper medical and financial support.
On the way to recovery
It takes approximately two years for someone with a serious traumatic brain injury to reach maximum medical recovery. During that time, and perhaps for some time afterwards, that person’s life is put on hold as he or she devotes his or her time and energy to rehabilitation. Living independently is the ultimate goal; even for those who have suffered the most serious brain injuries. In-depth planning is often necessary before the person is discharged from the hospital or other care facility, either back to the family home or to a supportive living environment.
For many families, timely access to insurance coverage — specifically no-fault benefits in the case of motor vehicle accidents — is crucial. Without this financial support, families often struggle to fund necessary rehabilitation therapies and supportive devices. The time families devote to caring for an individual living with brain trauma often means fewer work hours and this can reduce the amount of money coming into the household. Reduced family income is a common problem after a serious brain injury even if the person with the injury was not the primary income earner.

I could never have imagined what care Mann Lawyers have given to my family through the years. Edward Masters is truly a great lawyer and an asset to my family. Thank you.
A couple of years ago my life changed as a result of a slip and fall. I sustained some serious side effects that have continued to negatively affect my quality of life. As a lay person, suffering with a concussion, it can be very daunting to navigate the legal system. Thankfully, I was advised to seek out Mann Lawyers and specifically you (Karine Devost), as my legal counsel. That was probably the best advice I have ever received. Karine, you are intelligent, empathetic and you really "listen". You and your team's professionalism and commitment for a fair settlement went far beyond my expectations. I want to thank you so very much for your kindness and your dedication. I will be forever grateful to you for making my life better. It is because of you that I received a fair and reasonable settlement without going to court.
After having a serious motorcycle accident in 2015, I was comfortable having Mann Lawyers deal with my legal matters. My lawyer, Ted Masters, kept my wife and me informed concerning the legal steps as well as getting help that was required for my recovery. I appreciated the fact that Ted was able to explain things in a down to earth way. He was always available when needed and I would highly recommend him and Mann Lawyers.
I was represented by Mann Lawyers in a disability related case. Ted Masters built a strong argument based on my disability of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Ted has a lot of experience and strategies to advocate on behalf of his clients. As a result, we were successful. Ted’s approach with me was always reassuring, logical, humane and respectful of my personal situation. I really appreciated that he could be reached easily at all times.
