Traumatic brain injuries (also known as TBIs) can be devastating for both victims and their families. Catastrophic TBIs can result in dramatic changes to day-to-day life, and even seemingly “minor” injuries can have long-lasting effects that will continue to be felt long after the event.

If you or your loved one are suffering due to another person’s wrongful act or negligence, you have the right to take legal action to recoup damages for personal suffering and loss. Having worked with many individuals who have suffered TBIs, we understand that it can be overwhelming to know where to turn. To help get you started, here’s a list of things to look for in a lawyer representing your TBI case, as well as how James H. Brown and Associates are ready to advocate for your rights.

Experience On All Sides

TBIs aren’t like other injuries. The short and long-term effects of a brain injury aren’t always apparent, although they may cause severe complications to a victim’s physical, mental, and emotional health for the rest of their life. Meanwhile, science continues to discover far-reaching implications that can impact an individual’s long-term needs and risk factors. When selecting an attorney to represent you or your loved one, they need to completely and thoroughly understand how TBIs can drastically change an individual and family’s lives.

No one understands this better than Trent Brown. Before becoming a Partner with James H. Brown and Associates, Trent was a hard-hitting defensive back for both the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Edmonton’s storied CFL franchise. His decorated football career (including one CFL championship and two all-star selections) was cut short in 1999 due to numerous concussions. Trent understands firsthand what it’s like to have your life and livelihood altered by a TBI.

Today, Trent Brown leads our experienced team of lawyers to ensure victims of brain injuries receive the compensation they deserve. With a combination of firsthand experience, legal expertise, and a proven history of success, James H.
