"For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
Jeremiah 29:11

As the mother of one child with a catastrophic traumatic brain injury and a second child with a traumatic brain injury and an incomplete spinal cord injury from a 2005 motor vehicle accident with fatalities, Ms. Smith is learning first hand to use her legal, Collaborative and mediation skills and training to navigate medical, legal and educational systems to locate resources and services for her children and others who have been injured such as:

    • Assembling expert legal teams experienced in litigating, mediating or negotiating traumatic brain injury, personal injury, bodily injury and product liability cases.

 

  • Tapping into local, regional, state and national educational resources and being an effective IEP and 504 Team Member.
    • Locating funding, medical services, treatments, therapy options, equipment & supplies, and caregivers such as through fund raising, Med Pay, third party liability, homeowners insurance, umbrella policies, and medicaid waivers.

 

Ms. Smith has learned how life can change in an instant and that recovery from a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or any bodily injury may take a lifetime, but she and her family are sustained day-by-day thorough God's grace on their life's journey.
