The Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) just hosted their annual celebration and award ceremony. The group recently released the names of eight individuals and organizations that received annual awards at a March luncheon. The recipients were honored for demonstrating a commitment to the field of brain injury.
The BIAC is Connecticut’s partner in brain injury prevention and recovery. Founded in 1981, the organization reaches out to schools, governments, and individuals to educate them on the causes and realities of brain injuries. In addition, the group is the only non-profit organization to provide support services to victims of brain trauma. The BIAC helps hundreds of head injury victims get connected to the proper resources.
This free service has been a blessing to dozens of Connecticut families. When an individual is struck with a traumatic brain injury, family and friends are called into action. But, most of us do not know how to support a brain injury victim. Having an organization there to present options and get a family connected to the proper resources is critical.
The BIAC is not the only resource for brain injury victims. Local Hartford attorneys can help these victims and their families pursue their rights. These professionals can investigate the cause of the accident, calculate damages and pursue recover generally at no out of pocket expense to the victim.
Without local attorneys and the BIAC, victims of these catastrophic injuries would be stranded on a proverbial island. They would be trapped by mounting medical bills and lost wages. But, the BIAC, along with Hartford area attorneys, allow victims and their families escape this island and return to an acceptable level of normalcy.
