At Oatley Vigmond, we understand that the best recovery outcomes require more than legal representation alone. Most personal injury cases take an average of two years to reach their conclusion, which is two years too long for injury victims to be left unsupported. Our firm provides immediate care to accommodate the needs of our clients, and maintains ongoing support through every day of their recovery. We will be there for you from your first call to our final contact, ready to assist you in any way possible.

PEOPLE COME FIRST – Oatley Vigmond’s Mandate
Our Oatley Vigmond team is passionate about the well-being of our clients. This is demonstrated by our policy of no-charge consultations and no legal costs unless your traumatic brain injury case is successful.
Most individuals suffering from traumatic brain injury are hospitalized for extended periods. They are often rendered incapable of returning to work. Paying for rehabilitation and intensive care is hard enough; having to plan financially for a life without employment income can be overwhelming.
We help our clients achieve financial security so that they can look past these stressors and focus on their recovery. Brain injury survivors who have chosen the Oatley Vigmond team have consistently obtained settlements that help them achieve stability and normalcy.
Those afflicted by traumatic brain injury may suffer from the following symptoms:
Difficulty expressing thoughts
Changes to hearing, vision, taste, or smell
Dizziness and balance issues
Sudden mood changes
Sense of confusion
Problems with short term memory
Difficulty word finding
Inability to concentrate
Anxiety and uneasiness in noisy environments
Trouble with focus
Many brain injury survivors require lifelong care and rehabilitation to manage chronic symptoms. Counselling for the families is often helpful to cope with the changes to their loved ones.
Part of our commitment to our clients’ well-being involves engaging with the best health care specialists to assist with the recovery process. We connect traumatic brain injury survivors with psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, social workers, rehabilitation support workers, and more.
