You may not have been in the car at the time of the Independence car accident, but the brain injury suffered by your spouse in that accident is affecting every part of your life. Your family’s normal activities have been redefined. Few things, other than your love and commitment to one another, remain the same. Your spouse is dependent on you for help, but where do you start?
Support Comes from Many Sources

- Other services that your spouse or your family needs
Additionally, your spouse may benefit from the services of an experienced Kansas City personal injury lawyer.
