Acquired Brain Injuries (ABIs) are among the most serious personal injury cases Lerners Lawyers handle. They can be caused many different ways — motor vehicle crashes, blunt trauma from a fall, sports injuries, intentional violence — and even the most “minor” incidents can leave lasting damage.
The term ‘Acquired Brain Injury’ covers a wide range of conditions and symptoms, among those: concussions, brain damage, and in the worst cases, comas, vegetative states, even death.
With injuries as serious as these, it’s critical that those suffering get the specialized medical care they need. Lerners Lawyers are here to see that they do, and to be fearless advocates on their behalf if they’ve suffered these devastating injuries owing to another’s actions or negligence.
Personal injuries and illnesses don’t just take their toll on a victim’s health — financial hardships often result. Regardless of whether or not you are able to return to work, life’s expenses will continue. Helping you pay for these expenses, for yourself or your family, is the reason for disability coverage but, as many have found, getting that coverage isn’t automatic.
Denial or termination of disability benefits can be its own form of “personal injury”, sometimes occurring for reasons beyond the control of the injured or ill person. While there is an appeals process, the path to financial stability can be a hard one to travel alone.
A Lerners Lawyer can help you down that path, guiding and assisting you in navigating its many frustrating and time-consuming challenges, helping to make you whole, and giving you peace of mind.
These debilitating injuries can change the lives of whole families, causing great pain and hardship. Injuries to the lower parts of the spine may cause loss of function in the hips and legs, making the simple act of walking difficult. Injuries to the mid-back can result in either temporary or permanent paralysis in the lower body. In the worst cases, spinal cord injuries in the neck and shoulders or at the base of the skull can result in total paralysis, making eating, speaking — even breathing — impossible without assistance.
While initial medical expenses are typically paid for by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), due to the long-term nature of these injuries, costs such as drugs, caregiver costs, loss of income, etc., often go uncovered.
In addition to pairing you with medical experts in your condition, a Lerners Lawyer can ensure important documents are filed on-time for insurance or long-term disability claims, determine if a possible settlement offer is reasonable, and, if necessary, represent you in court to get the compensation and help you and your family deserve.
Injuries from sexual assault or abuse — whether committed against adults or minors — can be heartbreaking, requiring years of therapy and, for many, never fully healing. Often, the abused are taken advantage-of by those close to them, those whom they trust or who hold positions of authority. While these cases can be as devastating, it’s critical to remember: You Are Not Alone.
Sexual assault isn’t just a matter for the police and criminal courts, it results in lasting damage for survivors, compromising both work and home life, hurting relationships, and negatively impacting virtually every aspect of an abuse victim’s existence.
As such, after a case of recent or historic sexual abuse or assault, survivors are entitled to justice as well as compensation. A Lerners Lawyer will stand with you the entire way, helping provide vindication for you — and accountability for your attacker. With a Lerners Lawyer, sexual assault and abuse survivors can begin to reclaim their lives.
The loss of a loved one can be devastating, but knowing (or suspecting) that loss should never have occurred in the first place creates additional trauma and pain. Unlike most personal injuries, a wrongful death cannot heal — the damage has been done and the victim’s family is left only with questions and, often, crippling expenses.
Many of these costs may be offset by a life insurance policy, but too often, families of the deceased find their claims rejected on technicalities, or responsible parties refusing to do the right thing and provide adequate compensation.
The best way to obtain fair compensation and hold the correct party accountable is to hire a Lerners Lawyer. We help determine the correct course of action, ensure papers are in order for an insurance claim or lawsuit, and advise you as to whether a potential settlement offer is reasonable. Finally, if necessary, a Lerners Lawyer will be a tireless advocate on your behalf — and on behalf of those who are no longer able to speak for themselves — in a court of law.
