Adjusting to life after traumatic brain injuries

Car accidents can leave victims with life-altering injuries. Some of the most severe ones are those caused by an accident that involves a large truck. An Ontario woman recently spoke about the consequences of brain injuries she suffered when a garbage truck rear-ended her car at a red traffic light. It took her five years before she found a treatment method that brought relief.

The woman described the moment of impact and said it changed her life in the blink of an eye. She suffered whiplash, traumatic brain injury and damaged soft tissues in her shoulder. She expected to have a stiff neck, but her injuries had more severe consequences. It took her 14 weeks of hard work to regain her balance while enduring extreme headaches, nausea, body aches and leg pain.

She was unable to continue her busy lifestyle, and going for walks, playing with her grandchildren and taking care of her husband and son were impossible. She could no longer do gardening and cooking, and socializing with friends was out of the question. The only thing she could endure was the silence between her four walls. When her doctor said it would take some time to recover, she had no idea that her suffering would continue for many years.

In cases such as this in which another party's negligence causes brain injuries, the injured person will likely have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. The truck driver, the owner of the truck and others, could be named as defendants. An Ontario lawyer with experience in recovering financial losses for brain injury victims would increase the client's chances of receiving maximum recovery of past and future monetary damages.
