Brain injuries require sophisticated, specialized medical care along with sophisticated, specialized legal representation.
An Acquired Brain Injury (also known as ABI, Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI) results in complicated long-term needs for both you and your family. It is a life-changing injury that can impact everything from personality to mobility. Often its effects are not recognized for a long time, causing frustration and upset for both the victim and his or her family. Brain injury results in complicated medical and rehabilitative needs and often significantly impacts your ability to work or go to school.
At Legate & Associates, we have extensive experience representing those who have suffered brain injury. Our experience ranges from the most severe injury, even those resulting in death, to mild traumatic brain injury and post-concussive syndrome. We represent people who have suffered brain injury from car accidents, medical malpractice, falls, swimming pool injuries, and recreational or sports activities.
At Legate & Associates we have a long history of supporting the Brain Injury Association of London and Region. While director of this organization, Barbara Legate was instrumental in developing The Monarch, its flagship newsletter and vital link to survivors and health practitioners alike.
