Spine Injury & Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center
Resources for Survivors of Brain and Spinal Injuries
Injuries to the brain and spine are among the most life-changing injuries
a person can experience. Recovery from a spinal injury or traumatic brain
injury requires a dedicated medical team and ongoing medical care and
physical therapy. Survivors and their families need every resource available
to adapt to a new life and move forward.
That's why we've created this directory of resources to help you
and your family find the help you need. The Honolulu-based personal injury
lawyers of Leavitt Yamane & Soldner help victims of catastrophic injuries
such as TBI and paralysis recover both financially and emotionally from
these life-altering injuries. Our goal is to make a positive difference
in the lives of our clients.
An array of services from outpatient physical therapy and transportation
to support groups and specialized equipment are available in Hawaii for
survivors of spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. We want you
to be able to find them in one place.
Brain Injury Resources
Living with a brain injury requires specialized support and services. The
effects of a traumatic brain vary from person to person and so to do the
services needed. This page offers a listing of brain injury support groups
and rehabilitation services to help you find the services most beneficial
to your situation.
Spinal Cord Injury Resources
Spinal injuries are traumatic damage to vertebrae in the spinal column
or the spinal cord itself. Damage to the spinal cord can cause permanent
loss of strength, sensation and function (paralysis) below the location
of the injury. This page offers a listing of spinal cord injury support
groups and rehabilitation services.
Many people who have experienced spinal injuries and brain injuries learn
to adapt and lead productive lives. But the costs of a permanent disability
can easily exceed $1 million over the victim's lifetime. This does
not include lost income and potential earnings. It is crucial that the
victim of a spinal or brain injury obtain full and proper compensation
for their injuries after an accident.
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury or spinal
injury in an accident in Hawaii, do not hesitate to contact Leavitt Yamane
& Soldner. You may have a right to compensation that will be of great
assistance to you and your family in the days of recovery and adjustment
ahead of you.
