Your lawyer can help: Insurance Corporation of British Columbia
An acquired brain injury is one you get that isn’t related to a genetic defect. For example, if you’re in a car accident and suffer a blow to the head, you could receive an ABI that causes significant damage to your brain. You could have trouble with your memory, difficulties with speaking or staying conscious.
When you receive an ABI, it’s important to get the medical help you need immediately. You may be worried that you need to speak to your lawyer about your accident first, but your health is the most important concern. Once you’re in a position where you are stable and aren’t in danger, then your lawyer can help you work through what happened and decide if you want to pursue a claim.
With an ABI, you could be facing a life of recovery. While some mild ABIs will heal quickly, others may take longer and can cause stress and frustration in your daily life. You may no longer be able to work, may need help around the house, and you might not be getting to participate in the kind of social life you want.
When your personal injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you’re in a position where you can make a claim to have your private medical care or other expenses covered by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, or the ICBC. The ICBC can be invasive and could try to save money by making your injuries seem less severe, but it’s important that this is prevented. Our website has more information, so you can have the best chance with your claim.
