Journal/Book: Neurorehabilitation. 1996; 7: Customer Relations Manager, Bay 15, Shannon Industrial, Estate Co, Clare, Ireland. Elsevier Sci Ireland Ltd. 119-135.
Abstract: Clients who have experienced a brain injury often are damaged by a third party who is perceived responsible for the consequences of their actions. In the United States, a common method of seeking financial compensation for the injury is to file a personal injury law suit. This article will outline the RAPEL method for identifying instrumental details for settling the personal injury claim or educating a jury if a trial is necessary. Topics include identification of future medical care and related needs as well as assessing the effects of the injury on the ability to work.
