Reconnecting at the HSH Booth
Our booth at the show provided attendees with the opportunity reconnect with our legal team of lawyers and clerks who work extensively with those who have suffered an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Our role is to advocate on our client’s behalf to obtain fair settlement from Insurance companies. This allows families the financial means to obtain treatment, services and long term support for the ABI survivor as a result of their life changing injury.
