Concussions Injury Compensation Ontario.
I have had so many people come to me after a car accident in Ontario and they have no visible signs of an injury, yet they are suffering. After I hear about their day in and day out activities, it becomes quite apparent to me that they are suffering from a severe concussion. Concussions are a type of brain injury. Although there is not always a blow to the head, a head injury can be equally or more painful. In many cases, accident victims with severe concussions are not able to return to work or their everyday activities such as concentrating, remembering , or even simple tasks such as getting groceries or mowing the lawn. Suddenly noises, vibrations and lighting prevent them from any quality of life. No two concussions are alike and the effects suffered by brain injury victims will be different. The brain is one of the most complex organs in the body which controls all of the body’s functions. When these bodily functions are compromised, accident victims can suffer physically, mentally, and emotionally.
There has been a rise in public awareness when it comes to concussions. It was previously believed that small blows to the head had little impact on one’s brain health. Now, however through research, we know that these impacts can result in brain injury.
As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer I find this development in research to be amazing. With the new technology developed to test for concussions and brain injuries, I am able to help my clients get identified and get the medical help they need in a timely manner. After that, I am able to help them get the maximum financial compensation for their concussion injury.

- Temporary loss of consciousness
- Slurred speech

When someone suffers from a concussion, it is important that I work closely with their family and healthcare practitioners to ensure that we are keeping a close eye and making sure to note any changes or triggers with their concussion. Coping with the needs of a brain injury victim is extremely difficult for everyone involved.
Concussion injuries can be life changing
A severe concussion is life altering for everyone involved. I understand the pain and frustration involved when someone suffers a severe concussion. I have been able to put many things in place and help secure my clients financial futures as many have been unable to return to work.
