In cases related to traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that were sustained due to the negligence of another—such as brain injuries suffered in traffic accidents—the individual seeking compensation must prove the damages caused by the injury.
The British Columbia brain injury lawyers at Stephens & Holman have extensive experience helping TBI victims and their families recover the financial compensation they need and peace of mind they deserve. Our lawyers understand how a brain injury can impact every area of your life, and we know how to establish the damages that stem from TBIs.
TBIs can cost their victims mobility, cognitive skills and quality of life. TBIs also result in extensive medical costs, and they may require long-term care, physical rehabilitation, medication, and specialized devices such as wheelchairs or breathing apparatus.
Those who suffer TBIs may not be able to perform their previous job duties and need vocational training for a new position. Some brain injury victims may not be able to return to work at all.
A successful brain injury case will allow TBI victims to recover compensation for resulting damages including:
• Medical expenses
• Lost earnings
• At-home care
• Pain and suffering
For more information about TBIs, please see our Brain Injury Questions page.
