Recovery rate from brain injuries is unpredictable

Whenever lawsuits are filed in Ontario civil courts to pursue recovery of damages in accidents, determining the future damages is a complex process.

Brain injuries -- life goes on and bills accumulate

While negligent drivers often cause others to suffer catastrophic injuries, some medical professionals have also been accused of negligence that had life-changing consequences. Ontario residents may empathise with a family in another province whose young daughter's visit to a dentist for a tooth extraction left her with permanent brain injuries. Reportedly, her community arranged a fundraising dinner to help the family with ongoing expenses.

It has been suggested that a silent epidemic is killing and disabling people in Ontario and across Canada.

One victim recently described how her life had changed after another driver who was travelling at a speed of 50 to 60 kilometres per hour rear-ended her car at a red light in 2015.
