Brain injury is the most serious and most devastating category of personal injury case around. At Goldfinger Law has a particular focus in handling these cases. We understand that brain injury can occur in a variety of different ways, whether it be from a car accident, bicycle accident, pedestrian collision, boating accident, slip and fall or other trauma to the head. We also understand that a traumatic brain injury can have a variety of different consequences which present differently depending on the accident victim. Headaches, blurred vision, memory loss, loss of concentration, fatigue, ringing in the ears, depression, anxiety, rage, mood swings, slurring or stuttering or words, speech pattern issues, dizziness, loss of balance, loss of appetite, loss of sleep, and compulsive behavioural patterns are all associated with a major head injury. With offices in Toronto, London, and Peterborough, we’re able to service clients across Ontario.
One of the biggest problems accident victims face when dealing with brain injury, is that it is invisible. There's no giant cast, band-aid or bandage which screams to the world that your life has been turned upside down on account of traumatic brain injury. Sometimes, only your friends, family or loved ones can appreciate the change in your life or mood following an head injury. Sometimes, the brain injury doesn't show up on any scan, or MRI result. This makes it increasingly difficult and frustrating for the accident victim to cope with their day to day challenges, which are already impaired on account of the brain injury. Goldfinger Law understands the uphill battle which you face, along with the personal, emotional, social and financial challenges accompanied with it. We don't want to make your life already more complicated that it's become. Our goal is to simplify your life, and take the pressure of the emotional, health, financial and social stressors away, to give you peace of mind. This is what we do.

They understand how brain injury affects the person, the family and their associated lives. Their understanding of the symptomology, scope, and rehabilitation of the brain is next to none.

People often want to know how much money they can expect to receive from a personal injury claim involving a traumatic brain injury. Brain injury cases often yield damage awards which are higher than other cases, but it all depends on the facts of the case, the nature of the injury, and the person's functional level before and after the accident. Factors courts look to in assessing these cases may include how much money was the person earning before the accident, whether or not the person is able to return to work following the accident, how much future care will the person require following the accident. All of these amounts can render million dollar results. While there is no clear cut answer to any of these questions, we invite you to contact a lawyer from Goldfinger Law so we can give you a free, no pressure assessment of your case. We can answer these questions as best as we can, and help you protect your rights so that you aren't taken advantage of by somebody acting for the insurance company. You have nothing to lose by calling, and everything to gain. If you can't meet with us at our office, we will come to you. We do hospitals and home visits.
