As someone who has worked extensively as a malpractice attorney providing advice to clients regarding settlements for brain injuries (TBIs) is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Making the decision to accept a settlement requires thought and consideration.

This includes considering future expenses, costs associated with rehabilitation lost wages and non economic damages such as pain and suffering.
