How it Works

With brain injury cases it is imperative to have a neuropsychological assessment conducted by a highly reputable brain injury physician at a leading hospital. The neuropsychological assessment is the compilation of a series of tests designed to map out mental functioning and determine where the problems lie. These test results are then clinically compared to functionality prior to the injury. You can also be assessed by Neurologists, and Neuropsychiatrists.

Types of Brain Injuries

Subdural Hematoma
A subdural hematoma (SDH) occurs when blood collects between the inner layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater of the meringues around the brain. The bleeding is usually a result of tears in the veins that cross over that subdural space. It is most commonly associated with Traumatic Brain Injury. Treatment can range from time and monitoring to surgery.

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
A subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a type of stroke that can be life-threatening. While it can be caused by a ruptured aneurysm, it can also be caused by a head injury. Survival rates range from 1/3 surviving with a positive recovery, 1/3 will survive with a disability, and 1/3 will die. This is basically bleeding around the brain that is caused by a stroke-like hemorrhage. (Source)

Edema
Edema in its simplest definition is “swelling due to trapped fluid.” When applied to the brain, the damage can range from minor to severe, even causing death. Cerebral edema happens when fluid around the bran builds up and increases pressure against brain matter, also called “intracranial pressure.” While swelling and/or inflammation is a natural bodily response to injury, where the edema happens can cause lasting effects.

Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI)
In children this is also called “shaken baby syndrome” but this traumatic brain injury can happen at any age. When the brain is shifted abruptly inside the skull and the fibers that hold it in place, called “axons” are sheared off as the brain accelerates and decelerates inside the unforgiving hard bone of the skull. Common in car accidents and assault, this can resolve with time or cause permanent disability and even death.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

here are many symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury. Some you might feel right away, some may take time to occur. Because the brain is hidden and symptoms can be delayed or misinterpreted – it is important to see a doctor immediately after an injury occurs. If you’ve fallen at a private residence or business and hit your head, been in a car accident, or maybe you were hit while riding your bike – it’s imperative to seek medical attention immediately. Let an experienced Toronto brain injury lawyerat Himelfarb Proszanski help you sort out the complicated minefield of medical bills and compensatory damages.

Physical Symptoms

  • Loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes
  • No loss of consciousness, but a state of being dazed, confused or disoriented
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Problems with speech
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sleeping more than usual
  • Dizziness or loss of balance

Cognitive or Mental Symptoms

  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Mood changes or mood swings
  • Feeling depressed or anxious

Sensory Symptoms

  • Sensory problems, such as blurred vision, ringing in the ears, a bad taste in the mouth or changes in the ability to smell
  • Sensitivity to light or sound

Timeline to File A Slip and Fall Claim in Ontario

In Ontario, the statute of limitations for a case like slip and fall is two years – and that means you must file your claim before the 2-year anniversary of your accident. The longer you wait, though – and the lack of an immediate on-site inspection – can make this process more difficult. Contacting the slip and fall lawyers at Himelfarb Proszanski right away is critical.

COMMON TYPES OF SLIP AND FALL INJURIES

There are a variety of issues that could cause slip and fall injuries.  From our harsh Toronto winters making ice a hazard, to uneven walkways and other substances on the ground – making sure the area is safe is the responsibility of both homeowners and business owners.

Wet floor in a building, store, or restaurant
A wet floor is probably the most prevalent cause of a slip and fall injury.  From standing water on a vinyl floor to iced-over sidewalk – the most common type of slip and fall case we see is usually from a wet floor.  Determining who is responsible can be difficult – that’s why you need an experienced lawyer familiar with Toronto to help.

Loose carpeting in a home or business
Just a wrinkle in the carpet can cause a major wrinkle in your life. Something as simple as a stumble could cause major injury if you fall hard enough, or down a flight of stairs, due to that small lump. Making sure the correct party is held responsible, and that you’re taken care of is an important step.

Broken or loose stairs in a business
Businesses are tasked with creating an environment that is safe for their customers. Broken or loose stairs can cause major or minor injuries. No matter how small the fall, making sure the correct party is held responsible can be a big task. Let the slip and fall lawyers at Himelfarb Proszanski help.

Uneven/cracked pavement or sidewalks
Is the city responsible for uneven sidewalks? Is the business owner? Or maybe the landlord for the building the business is located in? There are a lot of questions to be answered when you trip and fall on an uneven sidewalk. Frozen ground and frost heaves can make a mess out of concrete walkways – make sure your injuries are taken care of.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Broken arm, leg, ankle, or knee
What feels like a sprain could be worse or get worse if you fail to get it checked out. Make sure you’ve been checked out by a doctor immediately after a slip and fall injury, even if you feel okay right after the incident.

Back & Spinal Cord Injury
Back injuries can seem innocuous enough when you’re first injured, but a slight discomfort can turn into major pain in a short amount of time. Make sure you get your back pain due to a slip and fall accident checked out as soon as possible.  Tingling in your extremities and other symptoms could mean you have some spinal cord damage – be sure to see a doctor immediately after your fall.

Head injuries
What feels like a bump could be a concussion, or worse. Making sure any head injury is tended to by a physician is an important step after a slip and fall injury – we can help you find care and compensation – contact us today!

Sprains & Strains
Even a minor injury such as a sprain or strain can mean time off work to recuperate. A good slip and fall lawyer will get you the compensation for that time off work, as well as make sure any medical bills are covered.

Hip Injuries
According to the US-based Centers for Disease Control, over 95 percent of broken hips are suffered in falls. When a fall results in hip injury, hospitalization, surgery, and nursing care/rehab admittance are necessary. Some surgery may even require implantation of an artificial hip. While hip fractures are more common in older populations, slip and fall injuries that cause hip injuries can still be caused by negligence on the part of property owners and managers.

We are so happy that we had David and his team represent us. We couldn't have asked for a better team. Not only is David incredibly skilled and experienced, he is kind and compassionate and it is clear how much he cares for his clients. Megan was also absolutely amazing to work with and was always on top of everything and there to answer any questions we had! Thank you!

I'm so happy I chose David as my lawyer. I spoke to a few lawyers before finding David and I noticed majority of them spoke to me in a way that felt demeaning or that my case wasn't big enough or important enough to take. One phone call with David and my opinion on lawyers changed. He spoke to me as an equal and made me feel as if my case was definitely important and that I deserved to be fairly compensated. The whole process was wonderful. From dealing with David's law clerk Ingrid whom is an amazing and kind woman to his legal assistant Melissa whom is another amazing kind and talented young woman. I was so stressed about this case but from day 1 they helped ease that stress and always answered all my questions promptly and respectfully. I couldn't believe David got me to mediation within 6 months of being cut off my LTD and got me a settlement way beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about this law firm but I guarantee you that if you need a lawyer to fight for you David is your guy! . Believe me when I say this is the law firm for anyone dealing with personal injuries especially LTD denial claims. Thank you so much to David, Ingrid and Melissa you truly don't know how much I appreciate all you did for me and how this will help me get back on track with my life. Keep helping others you guys are doing amazing work! I wish you all the best!

I sustained a relatively painful injury, affecting me long term.I wouldn't otherwise had pursued it, as it involved a relatively large corporation, but felt it necessary to do so. However, many lawyers were daunted, with one, who actually referred me to HIMPRO.I was connected with Dan Holland, who reviewed the case, provided with me realistic expectations, sound advice and had a willingness to move forward and represent me.His calm and professional demeanor, brought me to a place of reassurance. His ease in addressing all facets of this process, clearly demonstrated a wealth of experience. There was never any hesitation, when being challenged, and felt my best interest was always in the forefront.This case has since been resolved, to my complete satisfaction.Without reservation, HIMPRO (and Dan Holland, in particular), would be the only firm I would recommend for these type of cases.
