Every year James H. Brown & Associates represents numerous individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Sometimes the TBI is catastrophic and life-changing. In other cases the TBI is relatively minor and the individual is able to carry on with their day to day activities in a relatively normal fashion.
Our firm is a leader in brain injury litigation having achieved the largest motor vehicle related brain injury settlement ever achieved in Alberta. We spare no expense to not only fully investigate the accident but also to retain neuropsychologists and other top medical experts to assess the injury and its impact upon our client's life. Other experts such as functional capacity experts, occupational therapists, cost of care assessors, and economists are retained to fully evaluate the client's claim and to calculate such things as past and future loss of income and future cost of care.
The experienced injury lawyers at James H. Brown & Associates understand the seriousness and complexity of traumatic brain injuries and are committed to seeing that everything possible is done to assist our clients to recover as much of their pre-accident functional capacity as possible considering the extent of their injury.
James H. Brown & Associates is a major supporter of the Brain Care Centre (formerly NABIS), an organization that provides information, support and assistance to those suffering from traumatic brain injury. In addition to providing funds to start the Brain Care Centre telephone help line James H. Brown & Associates sponsors the annual Brain Care Centre fundraising breakfast and the annual Brain Care Centre charity golf tournament.
