The Bottaro Law Firm Supports the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island
March 14th, 2017
Some personal injury attorneys in Rhode Island have an unfortunate first-hand awareness of brain injury. If a client suffers a slip and fall or car accident, there is the frightening chance that brain injury could result.
In the United States, nearly 1.6 million people a year suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island (BIARI), statistics show that a brain injury occurs every hour in Rhode Island. The highest risk groups include adolescents, young adults and the elderly.
The Bottaro Law Firm is proud to support the Brain Injury Association of RI
- It helps increase awareness of brain injury and its consequences
- Fosters education about brain injury prevention
- Improves quality of life for people affected by brain injury
Knowledgeable staff at the BIARI is available to suggest materials through its lending library, brain injury resource guides, information about regional rehabilitation opportunities, and referrals to neurologists, therapists and attorneys. They also offer brain injury in-service training for professional and ministry groups.
The organization offers support groups which allow persons with brain injury and family members to meet with others in similar situations, obtain emotional support and friendships, get information and resources, and hear speakers discuss a variety of brain injury topics.
BIARI provides advocacy training for individuals with brain injury or other disabilities, family members and professionals at healthcare facilities or ministry organizations free of charge.
The consequences of a brain injury can range from limited use of a specific part of the body to altered personality and/or mental abilities. Symptoms of brain injury may be immediate in some cases, but in others they may not present for days or weeks after the injury. The Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island educates and empowers caregivers and survivors of traumatic brain injuries and helps them understand TBI.
Committed to Traumatic Brain Injury Support
At the Bottaro Law Firm, we are committed to helping accident victims who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and families who have lost loved ones due to accident-related TBIs fight for just compensation. If someone else is to blame for your injury or loss, you need – you deserve – to have an experienced and impassioned advocate on your side.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a TBI, you may be completely overwhelmed during the resulting aftermath. In addition to healing physically, you may be inundated with family and financial obligations and calls from insurance companies, and feel overwhelmed while trying to deal with your employer. You may not even know for sure who caused your injuries.
During this chaotic and difficult time, it is important to have a legal team on your side that can help you deal with many of these burdensome tasks while simultaneously ensuring that your legal rights are protected.
The reputable and experienced attorneys and staff at the Bottaro Law Firm can assist you by:
- gathering information necessary to determine the identity of the liable party or parties
- communicating with insurance companies and your employer
- arranging for experts to determine the extent and severity of your injuries
- and pursuing claims for maximum compensation for you and your family, while adhering to all pertinent deadlines.
We are dedicated to helping victims and their families enforce their legal rights, and we pursue maximum compensation for each of our clients with a passionate attention to detail and a relentless will to win.
It is this type of advocacy and support that we at the Bottaro Law Firm respect and appreciate. Many thanks to the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island for furthering inclusion and public awareness for this very destructive personal injury.
