Brain Injury Claim Lawyers - TBI Compensation Canada
The consequences of traumatic brain injury depend on the location of the injury and on the severity of the injury. A person can have as little an injury as a concussion or as severe an injury as one leading to prolonged loss of consciousness. Falls, sports injuries, motor vehicle injuries, recreational injuries and motorcycle injuries can all cause traumatic brain injury that is persistent. When a person has a sustained injury, they often need physical therapy to help recover the aspects of daily living they lost. Young people and the elderly are most likely to have residual injuries. In almost all cases you should discuss your situation with a brain injury claim lawyer to establish whether or not you have a potential claim for a compensation settlement.
In some cases, you may need to seek legal advice from a brain injury lawyer with a view to making a personal injury compensation claim for any residual problems, especially if the injury was due to the negligence of another person. You should seek the advice of a qualified lawyer who specializes in personal injury cases with expertise in traumatic brain injury and head trauma damages. It is free to see the lawyer until you get paid for your injuries.

If the frontal lobe is injured, the area involved is the forehead region. It can result in body paralysis of some body parts and the individual loses their ability to plan ahead. There can be a loss of personal spontaneity and the person can have a single thought that does not go away, a phenomenon called perseveration. Social behavior and mood are affected and this can last for a long time. A particular type of aphasia called Broca’s aphasia can occur with a frontal lobe injury.
