When an individual sustains a brain injury through a type of accident, there can be a legal process to deal with in addition to the medical one. This legal aspect is one that can add additional confusion to an already difficult situation. If someone else’s negligence caused the individual’s brain injury, there may be a legal path to pursue in order to fund the high cost of treatment that will follow. We would like to introduce a guest writer to our blog who has extensive experience in navigating these legal issues.

Here at NeuroNotes, we thought it might be helpful to have a guest writer whose blog could help define the best path forward for an individual with traumatic brain injury and their family.
