If someone has caused the accident which has given you an acquired brain injury, either on the roads, at work or in an incident at a property, then our dedicated team can assist you in explaining your legal options.
Shine Lawyers understands that the path to recovery for a brain injury caused by trauma is unique to each of our clients. We will work with you to gain access to rehabilitation, support networks and medical attention within the course of your claim, so that we can assist you in planning for your future both financially and medically.
On an average, acquired brain injuries stabilize within approximately 24 months. We will wait for your injury to reach stabilization and ‘maximum medical improvement’ to ensure that your future expenses are fully taken care of an account for your ongoing situation.
Each State and Territory has different legal principles and legislation that influences how we approach and present your claim. Time limits often apply when bringing a claim for compensation so it is generally recommended that you, or a loved one on your behalf, contact a legal advisor with expertise in acquired brain injury as soon as possible after your accident to understand your options and avoid being barred from bringing a claim.
