When someone drives at high speeds
and makes a sudden stop, actions which often precede a car accident or head-on collision, an impact to the head can result
and have life-changing effects. Depending upon the symptoms, the injury can be classified as a moderate traumatic brain injury,
which requires early medical intervention to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.
At Gantzert Law, we represent accident
victims who are living with a moderate TBI. In addition to negotiating with ICBC to ensure maximum recovery of benefits,
our Vancouver moderate traumatic brain injury lawyer works to get the medical supports required for our clients to get better.
and Treating Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury
A moderate TBI is often defined as a diffuse axonal injury, also known
as axonal shearing, where the brain violently strikes the wall of the skull. Brain neurons are damaged and overall communication
between brain neurons breaks down.
Moderate TBI sufferers often experience recognizable and measurable symptoms, including:
- Long- and short-term memory loss and amnesia
- Mathematical and language difficulties
- Personality changes
- Psychological effects, such as depression
As with most brain injuries, the road to recovery from a moderate TBI can be long and difficult, and the prognosis is unique to each individual.
At Gantzert Law, we will work not only to get you the compensation you require from ICBC to account
for your injury losses but we will also arrange for testing and consultation with experts to aid in your treatment. We can
arrange for MRI scans and consultation with a neuropsychologist who can shed light on your condition.
