Have you suffered from a
brain or spinal cord injury?

A brain or spinal cord injury can change your life dramatically, and forever. Both can leave you unable to work or earn a living, and leave you in need of extensive medical treatment and other assistance for the rest of your life. The effects of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range from temporary dysfunction, to permanent disability, and even death. A spinal cord injury can cause permanent paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia. These cases are complicated and require a thorough assessment by Reybroek lawyers who understand the nature of these injuries, and the extent of the possible damages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does how I injured myself affect the benefits available to me?

Even if you were responsible for causing the accident, it is still important to seek legal advice. We will help you obtain proper and full accident benefits from your own insurance company. If another’s negligence led to your injury, we will file a lawsuit to recover financial compensation for your pain and suffering, lost income and other damages. We understand the lifetime costs of living with a brain injury or spinal cord injury. We will work with appropriate experts to determine your specific needs, and will advocate vigorously on your behalf.

Should I consult a doctor after my injury?

Yes. Documentation of injuries is key to every case. The insurance company may claim there is nothing wrong with you, yet the pain and suffering from the injury can prevent you from returning to work, returning to work part-time, pursuing a different career, or performing the activities you once enjoyed.

Who decides if you are disabled?

After the initial two-year period, you will continue to receive disability benefits only if you cannot perform any job at all — not just your own. If you do not meet this test, you will be expected to go back to work.
