Often, the impact to the family of someone whose brain injured is greater than the impact to the person who is actually injured, themselves. For an adult who suffers a traumatic brain injury, whose life is forever changed by that type of an injury, their family has to come in. They have to step up.

They’ve got to, very often, before the client is able to have the resources from the end of litigation or the end of the case. The family members have to step up and fill that void; make sure that the brain injured person gets through his day-to-day life, doesn’t hurt himself, is doing the best he or she can to get out into the community and do the right things and live a relatively normal life, or as normal a life as that person can; provide the support that, often, the family members of an adult don’t have to provide.

With a brain injured plaintiff, the family has to step in and do everything to help this person function and get through on a day-to-day life.
