Effects of a Brain Injury

Even after a minor head injury, brain function can be temporarily impaired.  This can lead to difficulties such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, depression, irritability and memory problems.

Long term damage: Depending on the damage, some people can experience problems for months or even years after a minor head injury.

Life altering effects: The more severe the brain injury, the more pronounced the long-term effects are likely to be. Survivors of more severe brain injury are likely to have complex long-term problems affecting their personality, relationships and their ability to lead an independent life.

Earning capacity issues: Even with good rehabilitation, support and help in the community, survivors and their families are likely to face uncertainty and challenges. Earning capacity is likely to be reduced or eliminated completely.

Did you know, vehicle accidents are among the most common causes of fractures in Alberta?
Did you know, vehicle accidents are among the most common causes of fractures in Alberta?

Effects of a Fracture

No two fractures are exactly alike. The effects on your life depend on which bone you break and how serious it is. But some things you can expect include:

Pain: This is different for everyone. It might have a ripple effect on your other bones, muscles, and joints as you change the way you do things to try to make it hurt less. Living with pain also can affect your quality of life, your job, your sleep, and even your mood, sometimes leading to depression.

Problems with movement: Spine and hip fractures in particular can make it hard for you to get around. They affect walking, bending, pushing and pulling.When you don’t move around much, you’re more likely to have problems like heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and mental health condition such as anxiety.

Emotional issues: It can be tough when things that used to be simple take more time or energy because of an injury — or you can’t do them at all. It may also make it harder to get out of the house, see friends and return to your normal social life.

Earning capacity issues: Your ability to earn income, and the jobs that you can no longer perform due to your “fracture” can often be detrimental long after the injury. Many people are unable to take time off to heal and job loss can happen.

Common symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, loss of range of motion in the neck, tenderness or pain in the shoulder, upper back or arms, fatigue and dizziness.

Long-term damage potential: While many people with whiplash get better within a few weeks by following a treatment plan, others suffer from chronic neck pain and other long-lasting complications.

Emotional issues: Victims can suffer from a range of emotional problems impacting all areas of life: Sleep disturbances, irritability, difficulty concentrating, memory problems and depression.

Did you know, paralysis injuries from vehicle accidents, while rare, are responsible for the most extreme costs to the victim if their rights are not protected.

Effects of Paralysis

There are many types and degrees of paralysis.

Potential for permanent disability: While a best case scenario is partial or temporary paralysis, there is the real chance of complete, permanent, life altering paralysis.

Severe physical and emotional issues: Because paralysis can happen to any muscle or group of muscles, many body functions can be affected. Some of the problems that can occur along with paralysis include:

  • Problems with blood flow, breathing and heart rate
  • Changes in the normal function of organs, glands and other tissues
  • Changes to muscles, joints and bones
  • Skin injuries and pressure sores
  • Blood clots in the legs
  • Loss of urine and bowel control
  • Sexual problems
  • Problems speaking or swallowing
  • Behavior and mood changes

Earning capacity issues: Short or medium term lowering of earning capacity is almost inevitable, and complete loss of that capacity is common.

chronic joint pain from motor vehicle accident in woman
Do not suffer in silence. Did you know, many people think that living with pain is a normal part of life? It is not.

Effects of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is pain that continues beyond the expected period of healing for an illness or injury. In chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months or years.

Range of health effects: Chronic pain can lead to a chronic stress reaction that causes an increase in blood pressure and heart rate. This stress reaction can lead to harmful health effects, such as a reduced ability to fight off illnesses and diseases. It also can increase the risk for conditions such as heart disease.

Emotional issues: Emotional problems from chronic pain can take many forms  including depression, anger, anxiety and fear of re-injury. These fears may slow down a person’s ability to return to his or her everyday or leisure activities.

Earning capacity issues: Depending on the type, duration and severity, chronic pain can reduce earning capacity in the short term or for years to come.

Reviews & Success

What You Need to Know

Whether you are the person injured or not, you’ll benefit from having quality answers to the most common motor vehicle injury questions. Understanding these will help guide you in picking a lawyer that will have your best interests at heart.

Do I really need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

No. But it is unrealistic to think that you will be able to get the same results without one.

What should I do if I'm in an accident?

  1. Seek medical attention. Be sure to get a proper diagnosis of your injuries and receive medical treatment promptly, even if you feel fine.
  2. Report your accident. Make sure there is a record of the incident that includes what happened and when, names of witnesses and their contact, and any other relevant details. If possible, obtain photographic evidence.
  3. Provide notice of your accident to your insurance company promptly. as there may be time limits involved.
  4. As soon as possible, contact us to discuss your case.

What determines how much I can receive?

The value of your claim depends on a range of factors, including the severity and cause of the injury, the medical evidence (most important), treatment history, and how it has affected your life.

What can a Personal Injury Lawyer do for me?

Apart from easing your stress and guiding you through the complex claim process,  people who work with an experienced personal injury lawyer receive considerably higher compensation than what they would get by themselves.

Can I receive benefits from my insurance company?

In Alberta, Section B Benefits are insurance benefits for people who are injured in automobile accidents, or who have loved ones who were injured or killed in automobile accidents. By law, every Alberta automobile insurance policy must contain a Section B clause.

Section B benefits are known as “no-fault” benefits, meaning that your right to claim them does not depend on whether or not you were at fault for the automobile accident that caused your injuries. These benefits cover certain expenses related to medical treatments, disability, and death.

Note that Section B medical payments are limited to $400/week.

What happens if the other driver doesn't have insurance?

If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident and the at-fault driver doesn’t have valid insurance or flees the scene, you may not have anyone to sue for your injuries.

The Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Program (MVAC) provides you with a way to sue and get payment for your injuries. As a victim, you may qualify for up to $200,000 – if there’s more than one victim, the payment will be split based on a pro-rated rate among all of you.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

The litigation process can be a long one. Many personal injury cases take 2-3 years to resolve, however, it can take longer depending on your case.

If your case goes to court, it may take longer. In general, the more serious your injuries, the longer it can take to reach a fair resolution.

What can I sue for?

Every case is unique, but there are five key areas that determine what you can sue for and for how much.

  1. Pain & suffering
  2. Loss of earning capacity
  3. Loss of housekeeping capacity
  4. Future care costs
  5. Out of pocket expenses during your recovery (special damages)

Most claimants get pain & suffering, only some are entitled to the other 4. Thats why its important to contact Foisy Law to discuss your individual case and its unique merits.
