The area of traumatic brain injuries are complex. Even ‘minor’ brain injury* can adversely affect an injured person’s ability to manage routine activities. A substantial range of issues need to be addressed including rehabilitation, career, educational, social, family and legal issues as a result of a brain injury. Rehabilitation is quite often expensive, as are support services for the injured person and their families. Our objective is to provide an efficient, sensitive and professional service.
