Effective legal advocacy for those who suffer traumatic brain injury requires knowledge, preparation, tenacity and passion. The best representation comes from attorneys who have a solid understanding of the medical practices involved in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of those living with TBI, including neurology, neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry, psychology, internal medicine, radiology, speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy.
We understand the specialized diagnostic and treatment terminology used in these sophisticated medical disciplines. We have studied the test batteries used and understand what they can measure and what they mean. This knowledge is imperative in the legal representation of our clients
We also understand the importance of the medical team approach for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of persons who live with traumatic brain injury. We work with the treatment team toward not only financial, but emotional recovery for our clients.
Living with what has been called the “invisible injury” and the cognitive, psychological, social and economic upheavals can be overwhelming and confusing. Our approach is to become involved with, consult and communicate as a facilitative adjunct to the treatment team and the survivor and family members.
