If you’ve suffered from a concussion or a brain injury as a result of an accident then you’ve come to the right place for help. Merchant Law has helped many Surrey residents receive compensation for the lifelong consequences of these injuries.
These include medical expenses not covered by Medicare, compensation for pain and suffering, and compensation for loss of income and earning capacity. When you’re facing a lifetime of chronic pain and the reduced ability to work this is money you’ll need to stay independent and on your feet.
These cases can get complex because many brain injuries are “invisible.” It can be difficult to prove the extent of your injuries without help. In addition, the defendant will be trying to prove you were responsible for the accident so they can pay less. You’ll need help from an experienced lawyer to get the compensation you deserve.
Prepare for a Hard Fight
Brain injury cases are often more expensive than many other types of personal injury cases. This means the opposition has a lot more motivation to fight as hard as they possibly can to avoid paying you.
The defendant’s insurance company, whether it’s ICBC or an out-of-province plan, will be working hard to claim you were at-fault for the accident so they can pay the bare minimum accident coverage they owe in these cases.
Often, brain injuries happen in cases which are already complex, such as truck accident cases or motorcycle accident cases. When this happens, the case requires even more expertise to prepare and to win.
All of this is made tougher by the fact that almost every plaintiff with a brain injury was unconscious or dazed directly after their accident. This means there was no chance to take photographs, get witness information, or exchange insurance information with the driver. Your injury serves as an advantage to the defense. It will take a savvy lawyer to help you overcome this.
At Merchant Law, we’re committed to investigating the case. We’re also committed to bringing in the expert witnesses who can help demonstrate the true impact of your brain injury on your life. We will fight for every penny of the compensation you need to recover.
