ICBC Brain Injury Lawyer

Dealing with something as traumatic as a brain injury is hard. The last thing you want on your mind is how you’re going to pay for treatment or dealing with an insurance company. After you’ve been injured in a car accident in British Columbia, you may be entitled to compensation to support your recovery. This is something that our experienced ICBC injury lawyers can help you with. Brain injuries vary in severity, and it can be hard to diagnose following an accident. Our ICBC Injury Lawyers can assist with setting up diagnostic tests, including MRIs.

If following an accident, you experience one or more of the following:

  • Headache
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Confusion or feeling “out of it”
  • Memory loss of the period immediately preceding the incident
  • Slurred speech
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness

You may have experienced a brain injury. Long-term symptoms of a brain injury can include:

  • Short-term memory impairment
  • Attention and concentration issues
  • Lessened ability to multi-task
  • Changes in mood and personality (i.e., depression)
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Increased sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • Headaches

These symptoms may come on gradually after the accident, which is why it’s important to regularly see your doctor, who may be able to help spot this type of injury and recommend proper treatment. Our ICBC injury lawyers can help with a referral to a neurologist, usually faster than through your family doctor. We will also ensure you receive the treatment you need from the proper care providers.
