Why You Can Trust De Caro & Kaplen, LLP With Your Traumatic Brain Injury Case
Following a traumatic brain injury, one of the most important decisions you make is the attorney you choose to represent you and your interests. The best rehabilitation in the world cannot change what happens in a split second.
You may not be aware but after the doctors and the other clinicians have finished, a brain injured individual’s many crucial needs continue. An attorney assumes an important role in the life of a brain injury survivor and his or her family; handling insurance disputes, preparing applications for government assistance, arranging ongoing rehabilitation needs, preparing for guardianship, and obtaining compensation for your life-time requirements. Nothing is a substitute for an attorney’s specialized knowledge and experience in advocating on behalf of brain injury victims. The better prepared he or she is, the more completely your interests will be protected.
The tragedy of brain injury has far-reaching consequences. Your brain injury attorney is a member of your team from day one. Unfortunately, many people make poor or ill-informed choices in selecting the appropriate attorney to represent them.
Whether preparing your case for settlement discussions or trial, your lawyer must consider the importance of accurate and complete communication of the many ways your brain injury will affect not only you, but your immediate family, and extended family. Through our years of experience, at De Caro & Kaplen, LLP we know where to find the support and assistance you may require. We know how to navigate a system unwilling to understand the long-term consequences of brain injury.
