There’s more to brain injuries than it appears. Even something seemingly mild can have long-term consequences.

Recent medical developments in sports have busted the myth that some brain injuries are “minor”. Brain injuries have been shown to have connections with memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and even with dementia.

Because brain injuries are sometimes invisible, they often go undiagnosed in the emergency room after an accident. Medical professionals can think that brain injury symptoms are caused by something else, which means that people can often live with a brain injury for years without realizing it’s the cause of all those symptoms.

If you think you may have a brain injury, it’s a good idea to get a second opinion or check with your family doctor as soon as possible.

If your injury happened because of an accident – whether it was a car accident, an ATV or snowmobile accident, or a slip & fall – you may be able to make an insurance claim. Medical care and other expenses can add up quickly so it’s important to get the compensation you need as part of your insurance claim.

Brain injury cases can vary a lot from one to the next, so it’s best to get specific details about your particular situation. We offer a free consultation and can help answer your questions.

Do I really need a lawyer?

Hiring a lawyer to represent you is completely optional. You can choose to handle your insurance claim alone if you want to.

Some people choose to do it themselves to save on legal fees, but we believe that in those cases the outcome will be worse than if they had hired a lawyer to represent them.

The insurance company has a whole team of adjusters and lawyers on their side with years of experience in making sure insurance payouts - including yours - are as small as possible. A lawyer with experience in insurance claims, on the other hand, will fight for you to make sure you get the full compensation you deserve.
