Personal Injury

Traumatic Brain Injuries

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.

The lawyers at Mann Lawyers are sensitive to the impact of a traumatic brain injury on the life of the individual and the well-being of the family. We are here to provide valuable information, advocacy and assistance to those in need of support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Essentially every client who has been injured in an accident has asked us this question. Simply put, it is impossible to determine whether someone has a good case before we get to know them. By understanding the nature of the accident in question, analyzing evidence and relevant documents, and interviewing independent witnesses, we can paint a clearer picture of what happened. This enables us to determine what your chances are of reaching a fair settlement.

By not only working with clients on their cases, but also reaching out to connect with appropriate rehabilitation specialists for further treatment, our legal team is committed to helping you along the road to recovery and safeguarding your integrity. We also fluently offer our services in English and French and, with over 80 years of collective experience, our lawyers really are knowledgeable when it comes to personal injury law. This is a unique, complex form of law that requires special training and dedication, and we strive to go above and beyond for every client in need. Those recovering from brain injuries can either reach out to us themselves or ask someone they trust to contact the team, for a free consultation.

Traumatic brain injuries are more sensitive because, quite literally, the mental welfare of the client may be more sensitive as well. Cognitive, mobility and motor-function-related impediments are all-too-common, sadly, which makes the hunt for evidence and information supporting the victim’s side of the story all the more of a challenge. However, with exceptional knowledge in the field of personal injury law and a dedication to making a difference, our team is well-prepared and capable of strengthening your case – and fighting for your rights.

No. We fully understand and respect the gravity of such a situation as a traumatic brain injury, and every client deserves a shorter road to recovery with fewer bumps along the way. Therefore, we work closely with those the team has trust in to find appropriate, effective treatments to continue recovery in the best way possible. Along with being a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer, each member of our team wants to also be a helping hand when you need it.
