A medical assessment from a highly qualified medical specialist (e.g. neurosurgeon, neurologist, neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, vocational consultant) confirming the brain injury in a timely basis is necessary as all brain injuries must be substantiated by medical reports for a successful case.
A medical assessment will verify if a brain injury fits within the following three classifications:
Mild brain injury is difficult to prove. It may occur from a strike on the head with no or minimal loss of consciousness. There could be no lasting effects or there could be lasting negative impact on your cognitive ability to function in society, including your ability to think, concentrate, learn, retain or recall information or regulate your emotions.
Moderate brain injury is found to result if you sustain a strike to the head and experience a lengthy period of loss of consciousness. This injury can have a permanent negative impact on your cognitive ability to function in society, including your ability to think, concentrate, learn, retain or recall information or regulate your emotions.
Severe brain injury is established after a loss of consciousness incurred has a permanent negative impact on your cognitive ability to function in society, including your ability to think, concentrate, learn, retain or recall information or regulate your emotions.
Brain injuries are typically life changing and can threaten your livelihood and ability to care for yourself and your family. Yet, an ICBC adjuster has no obligation to provide you the information necessary to ensure you get fully compensated. ICBC has a legal obligation to the policy of insurance of the at-fault party to minimize the cost of your claim.
While clients are often concerned that retaining a lawyer will mean it is necessary to go to trial, this is not true. Statistically, about 95% of ICBC cases settle without the necessity of going to trial in cases where the claimant is represented by a lawyer in a lawsuit.
Clients sometimes believe that retaining a lawyer will negatively impact how your adjuster deals with the case. However, experience shows the opposite because having a lawyer represent you in your ICBC claim ensures that you are fully aware of what your rights and entitlements are.
