A brain injury is a complicated full-spectrum injury that is classified medically as a primary or secondary injury. Primary brain injuries result from trauma suffered immediately after the accident. Secondary brain injuries are an indirect result of the trauma suffered from the injury and complications. A brain injury can severely limit you from fully participating in your everyday life and limit the progress needed to heal from a debilitating brain injury.
Brain injury law was rooted in Canadian Tort Law in 1860. The brain injury law was amended in 1997 and placed under The Workplace Safety and Insurance Act. The law allowed an injured person to pursue monetary compensation for a brain injury from a liable party.
The brain injury law is a mandatory clause within all registered businesses in Canada. There are limitations in place that both parties must adhere to. For example, In Ontario, a claimant must file a claim within 2-years of an accident.
Seeking skilled and experienced legal counsel is highly recommended if you have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Attempting to negotiate on your behalf against an insurance company or liable individual for compensation could leave you frustrated and heavily distracted from your healing and treatment program.
