Having an experienced attorney to represent you is incredibly important, especially when you or a loved one are dealing with the effects of a brain injury.
The Importance of Experience in Brain Injury Cases
The aftermath of a traumatic brain injury can be devastating for both the victim and his or her loved ones. There are constant worries about hospital bills, insurance policies and long-term care. It is normal for family members of traumatic brain injury sufferers to feel an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Most people don’t know anything about brain injuries and their costs, so it’s nearly impossible for them to imagine what resources will be needed or what actions should be taken.
Because traumatic brain injuries and their effects are as broad and varied as the functions of the brain itself, it’s important to have experienced people assisting you. If you have decided to take legal action, you’ll need an attorney that knows brain injuries, their effects, and their costs. Barbara S. Williams has dedicated most of her career to helping those who have suffered from brain injuries, and she has the experience that is an absolute necessity when it comes to bringing a brain injury case to trial.
Proving physical impairment to a judge, jury or arbitrator is a relatively easy task. For instance, if someone loses a leg in an auto accident, one could easily point out how that person’s life has changed. But since the damage caused by a brain injury is not always immediately visually apparent, the challenge of proving that the injury caused damage to cognitive skills or emotional control is much more difficult. To that end, it’s important to have an attorney with a detailed knowledge of the various effects that a traumatic brain injury can have on a person.
Barbara S. Williams brings almost 20 years of experience to every brain injury case, and over the course of her career she has successfully represented the victims of virtually every type of brain injury. Her concern for the plight of brain injury victims goes beyond the legal defense of their rights. She sits on the Board of Trustees for Brain Injury Services, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who have suffered from the effects of traumatic brain injuries.
The most important aspect of presenting a brain injury case is making the consequences of the injury obvious to a jury. Barbara S. Williams is renowned for making the sometimes not-so- obvious effects of brain trauma very clear, and she does this through working relationships with some of the foremost brain injury experts in America.
Using the opinions and testimony of forensic engineers, physicians who specialize in brain injury, neurophysiologists, neuroradiologists, life care planners, vocational rehabilitation specialists, and other medical specialists, Barbara Williams makes brain injuries and their consequences as clear as possible. The importance of a clear demonstration of damage cannot be stressed enough; the attorneys for the defense will do everything they can to minimize the effects of the injury. They do everything from checking into the victim’s background for anything incriminating to placing the victim under surveillance.
