Brain Injuries

Experienced Brain Injury Lawyers in Toronto

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) are some of the most severe and life changing injuries. Whether caused by a blow to the head or an object penetrating the skull, victims of traumatic brain injuries often face a long and difficult recovery. In many cases a full recovery is impossible and the injured person will never be the same and will never regain the life they had before the accident. The impact that this type of injury has on the victim and their family is tragic.

According to the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (BIST) the incidence of TBI’s annually is greater than that of multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, HIV/AIDS and breast cancer combined.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one that is caused by external forces, such as a blow to the head, which causes damage when the brain moves inside the skull. This is the one typically seen following car accidents, falls or other occasion when the is a blow to the head.

An acquired brain injury (ABI) on the other hand is caused by trauma to the brain at a cellular level, like a stroke or tumor, and is caused by lack of oxygen to, or pressure on the brain.
