Toronto Brain Injury Lawyers
A brain injury can have a devastating impact upon the life of the victim and his or her family. Brain injuries are complicated injuries which are often difficult to diagnose and treat. Where a brain injury is suspected, it is important to have the injury assessed organically through diagnostic imaging as well as by neuropsychological testing.
While diagnostic imaging will seek to detect whether the brain has suffered a physical injury, neuropsychological testing seeks to determine the presence of cognitive deficits. Once the particular cognitive issue has been identified, a course of treatment can be provided to address the specific impairment. Rotondo Law has represented brain injury patients since 1999. Our team of experts will work closely with you and your loved ones to determine the extent of your injuries, as well as winning the compensation you deserve for your care. If you or a loved one are suffering from a brain injury, regardless of whether it’s major or minor, seek legal representation immediately following the accident. When you contact Rotondo Law, we will take on your case and see that you are rewarded the full amount you are entitled to for your care and rehabilitation.
Broken bones aren’t the only physical injuries caused by accidents. Often, soft tissue injuries that cause chronic pain, such as whiplash and fibromyalgia, can take longer to heal assuming that these injuries ever do heal - leading to impairment of everyday life.
Since cases of chronic pain caused by an accident aren’t visible, insurance companies often refuse to cover them on the basis that chronic pain usually cannot be proven to exist by standard medical diagnostic tools. Victims of chronic pain often feel frustration with the fact that they suffer daily from their physical and emotional pain, only to have insurance companies question whether they are feigning or exaggerating their injuries. Chronic pain is in fact a real and disabling condition. In the landmark 2003 decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Board), v. Martin; Nova Scotia (Workers’ Compensation Board) v. Laseur, the Court ruled that chronic pain is a real and disabling condition which requires compensation boards to assess the individualistic condition of an injured worker. This case and others served to advance the rights of persons afflicted with chronic pain and to effectively legitimate their condition in the eyes of the law. If you are being denied coverage for the chronic pain you are suffering from, call Rotondo Law; we offer expert legal representation for clients suffering from chronic pain.
