Brain Injuries and Concussions
North Vancouver Brain Injury and Concussion Lawyers
Brain injuries are complex injuries that can range in severity and have devastating effects on an accident victim’s life. Often difficult to diagnose, their full extent can take years to realize.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be labeled as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the length of any unconsciousness and the severity symptoms. However, even a mild TBI, commonly referred to as a concussion, can result in ongoing symptoms such as headaches, difficulty thinking, nausea, memory loss, attention deficits, and other cognitive problems. While the majority of brain injuries usually resolve within 6 months, more severe brain injuries can result in permanent cognitive deficiencies that drastically diminish an accident victim’s quality of life, in many cases limiting their educational and employment prospects. That’s why it’s important to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer if think you’ve suffered a brain injury as a result of a car accident or other traumatic event.
