Have you or a member of your family suffered a brain injury as the result of an accident? Our lawyers will protect your rights and get you the help you need.
Brain and head injuries are not uncommon, and they are a source of pain, disability, and death for a number of Canadians each year. You may be surprised to learn that 50,000 Canadians suffer a brain injury each year, with over 12,000 coming from Ontario alone. According to St. Michael’s hospital in Toronto, patients suffer from traumatic brain injury at a rate 7x higher than that of breast cancer, and 30x higher than that of HIV/AIDS. In short, if you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you are not alone, and help is available.
Conditions associated with brain injury and head trauma may include:
- traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- acquired brain injury
- skull fracture
- closed head injury
PACE LAW has been helping victims of brain injury since 1980. We will pursue benefits and compensation on your behalf, addressing the following challenges:
- permanent cognitive disabilities
- permanent income loss
- memory loss
- permanent loss of ability to care for oneself
- the assessment of complex, hard-to-detect injuries, and the fair assessment of the financial and personal loss resulting from those injuries

Our legal team is experienced in handling serious injury cases, including brain, neck and spinal injuries. Our staff includes experts in civil litigation, a registered practical nurse, former insurance adjusters, and a critical care professional who is now a practising lawyer.
