Your brain controls your thoughts, movements and behavior. This is why any injury to your brain can harm your mental and physical health in many different ways – and ultimately prove to be very costly. However, if you suffered brain injury in a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle accident, you may be entitled to file a claim with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).
Klein Lawyers is here to help you. For more than 20 years, we have provided valuable assistance to those in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia who have suffered severe, life-changing head injuries and brain damage in an accident.
We know how to seek the maximum amount in an ICBC settlement and, if necessary, take cases to court in order to fight for what our clients deserve. We are ready to get to work for you today. Call or submit our online form for a free consultation.
You may read or hear from others that you do not need a lawyer to pursue an ICBC claim after a motor vehicle accident. Technically, this is true. However, in reality, you should always get help from a lawyer – especially if you or a loved one has suffered severe harm such as a brain injury.
Through the years, Klein Lawyers has obtained millions of dollars in ICBC settlements on behalf of our clients, including those who suffered mild to severe brain injuries. We believe we can make a major difference in the amount that you obtain in your case.
When you contact us about your ICBC head and brain injury claim, you can expect services that include:
Because a brain injury can majorly impact your life, you should never accept an ICBC settlement before you talk with a lawyer. Klein Lawyers will help you to avoid making the mistake of agreeing to a settlement for less than what your case is worth.

Concussions frequently occur in motor vehicle accidents. Although concussions are a mild form of TBI, they can be serious. Like other forms of brain injury, concussions can lead to problems with:
For this reason, Klein Lawyers urges you to see a doctor immediately after you have been in a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle accident in Vancouver or elsewhere in British Columbia. The longer you wait to get treatment for a concussion, the more damage it can cause.
The Brain Injury Association of Canada states that you should pay attention to these signs of a concussion:

Other types of head and brain injuries include:
