Greater Vancouver Head Injury Lawyers

South Surrey Lawyers for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims and Their Families

Unlike other injuries, the effects of a mild or traumatic brain injury (TBI) may cause lifelong symptoms which patients must learn to cope with through ongoing therapy or psychiatric techniques. Moreover, symptoms of a TBI or mild TBI (MTBI) may not be readily apparent when a patient is first treated, putting them at risk of further injuring themselves or others.

The law firm of Hambrook & Company assists those who have suffered serious head or brain injuries and their families in Surrey throughout the Greater Vancouver Area. Working with leading medical specialists who are experts in the diagnosis and care of TBI and MTBI victims, the firm seeks to ensure its clients receive the full amount of compensation to which they may be entitled to handle all required medical care and maintain financial stability.

Diagnosing TBIs and MTBIs

Those who have been involved in car accidents or motorcycle accidents have a higher risk of sustaining a TBI. Severe TBIs may cause internal bleeding in the brain, stroke or other conditions which may cause permanent brain damage. Because TBIs often result in lifelong problems, many TBI victims require attendant care for the rest of their lives.

MTBIs, by contrast, are often harder to diagnose, even with advanced imaging technology such as an MRI or CT scan. In many cases, patients need to be assessed by neurologists and other medical experts who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of MTBIs. Common symptoms of an MTBI include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Memory loss
  • Frequent absent-mindedness
  • Difficulty forming sentences and other speech problems
  • Twitching or lack of small-muscle control
  • Lack of coordination
  • Abrupt mood swings

Some of these symptoms can be treated with prescription medication, occupational therapy, speech pathology or other forms of counselling. Others, unfortunately, may be permanent.

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI or MTBI in an accident, a personal injury lawyer can refer you to the right medical specialists and help you obtain financial compensation or disability benefits you may need to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost income.
