People involved in motor vehicle accidents (MVA) can suffer any number of serious injuries. As a result, they may have a reduced ability to work or take care of themselves, and they may require ongoing care from a medical attendant, therapists, or housekeeping. Weir Bowen’s lawyers know how to properly investigate and pursue personal injury claims. We retain the most knowledgeable experts in orthopedic surgery, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, occupational therapy, life care planning, and economics.
MVA injuries may include:
Traumatic brain injuries can result from minor and major impacts to the head. Damage can range from mild to catastrophic, with consequences for cognition, memory, sensation, and emotion. Weir Bowen has the largest personal injury judgment in Alberta history in A.T.-B. v. Mah, 2012 ABQB 777.
Spinal Cord Injury
An injury to the spine or spinal cord can leave an individual functionally impaired, or in chronic pain. Paralysis is a possible outcome, in addition to physical, psychological, and emotional suffering.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Injuries to soft tissue may include sprains, strains, and whiplash, and damage to muscles and ligaments. These are often thought of as minor injuries but can result in chronic pain and complications. Jaw injuries (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) can lead to dysfunction, headaches, and migraines. Medication for fatigue may result in impaired thinking, memory, and emotion.
