First of all, it should be made clear that not every accident is going to result in some sort of injuries. However, the brute reality is that the majority of them would cause some traumatic injuries, including such of the brain or orthopedic ones. These injuries often lead to severe pain and suffering which is also subject to compensation as per the current legislation of Canada, which is enforceable in the province of Ontario. It’s also important to keep in mind that there are limitations set forth in the Statute of Limitations. This Act stipulates that certain cases can only be brought forward within a specified time period, which has to be considered. The solution is fair.
In any case, traumatic brain injuries are definitely the most unfortunate consequence. This is due to the fact that our brain is the single most important organ in our body and injuring it could lead to grave long term and even permanent damages. Some of the accidents which could lead to brain trauma include but are certainly not limited to car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall and many more. It’s important to be aware of your rights or to contract a lawyer which is experience and is capable of representing you in front of the respective authorities.
Brain injuries are severe. The brain is an organ which is consisted of millions of neurons which are transferring information all across our bodies. A brain injury can cause permanent disabilities such as blindness, loss of hearing, paralysis and many more. You should be aware that you would be able to claim the direct damages which required you to make certain expenses and the ones which occurred after the fact. These are economic losses and emotional traumas.
An economic loss is a consequence of an injury which rendered you unable to work or unable to work to the same extend. This has translated to a certain loss of income which you can be filing for as compensation. It’s important to note that you can only file for the amount of money which exceeds the amount you have received from your insurance company, provided you have one. The compensation that is going to be awarded has to be respectively reduced in order to avoid enrichment which is not regulated.
Emotional trauma on the other hand can include a whole lot of things. The depression that you are likely to suffer because of the way your life has shifted is one thing. Also you can be depressed because you are not able to provide your close ones with the attention that you used to or because you are causing them inconvenience with the fact that they have to take care of you.
