Brain Injuries Attorneys

This Brain Injuries section concerns injuries involving extremely serious trauma with permanent brain damage, invariably involving long periods of coma. At our law firm we have handled cases of this kind.

We have been privileged to represent Brain Injury Victims and their families who we consider to be the bravest people we have ever met. These families were ripped apart by catastrophic Brain Injuries suffered by family members. The mutual support we have seen and continue to see, is remarkable. The love we see, and have seen, is boundless. These families have honoured us by not only allowing us to be their lawyers, but by welcoming us and our son, Zachary, into their extended families to the point where, when we are with them, it is like being with family. We feel the same way about them.

There is no manner to even begin to compensate for the injuries and losses in these situations, but what is available through insurance is monetary compensation. These types of files, by their very nature, are extremely complicated, including issues such as past costs, present needs, future costs, actuarial tables – the list is basically endless. It is extremely important that a law firm, be retained in these situations, due to the complexity of the issues involved and the sheer number of issues involved

We, at our law firm, are very respectful of the families involved and take away as much stress as we possibly can so that the families can deal with their traumatic situation without having to worry about whether the legal matters are being handled. At the end of the day, we ensure that the monies obtained truly reflect the severity of the injuries. You learn a great deal from these situations. If one wants to know the true value of money, one only needs to look at a situation like this, where settlements involving millions of dollars don’t even begin to touch the injuries and losses involved and where the injured victims and their families would forsake the monies in a heartbeat to have their lives returned to a pre-injury state.

Blindness Attorneys

The five senses of Sight, Hearing, Smell, Taste and Touch are all extremely valuable and the loss of any one or more of them is tragic.

An injury victim who suffers a permanent loss of eyesight has had his or her life changed instantly and drastically. To suddenly be unable to see would be a terrifying prospect to deal with for anyone. It creates special needs that must be equally addressed. Basically, the person must learn to live a completely different life without the aid of eyesight. The injury victim must take special training and, of equal importance, will need to deal with extremely powerful emotional issues. As with any injury area there is a range of loss ending in total loss of sight.

As with any injury, medical treatment must be obtained in a timely manner. Of equal importance is the need to follow up on the medical treatment so that:

  1. You are treated properly.
  2. There is a proper record.

Additionally a law firm should be retained as soon as possible to deal with the insurance company and ensure the case progresses properly. A law firm should be retained because the issues involved are very complicated and there are simply so many issues to deal with.

Burns

People are justifiably fearful of the prospect of uncontrolled fire. To be exposed to an uncontrolled fire and burnt is a simply terrifying prospect, but it is a very real possibility in many injury causing situations. For example, in the area of Car Accidents the very presence of gasoline creates a real hazard.

As with any injury area there is a range for burn injuries. In this area numbers are often used to detail the injuries, with degrees used to indicate the severity of the burns, and percentage of body mass used to indicate the extensiveness of the burns. This use of numbers can appear callous because there is a human being that the numbers relate to, who must live with the burns.

The pain can be unimaginable and the recovery long. There is always an emotional issue, but in the most severe cases the emotional issue will be simply staggering to deal with.

As with any injury, medical treatment must be obtained in a timely manner. Of equal importance is the need to follow up on the medical treatment so that:

  1. You are treated properly.
  2. There is a proper record.
