Proudly Serving the Injured across Albany, San Jose & the Bay Area

Catastrophic brain injuries can occur after a serious accident or when a victim has been struck on the head due to a falling or improperly secured object. These head injuries can lead to permanent impairment, such as the inability to communicate or perform everyday functions. Memory may also be affected and a victim may need specialized long-term medical or rehabilitative care.

It is for these reasons and more that traumatic brain injuries, also known as TBI, affect more than just the victim. Our Berkeley personal injury attorneys help families throughout Berkeley, San Jose, Albany, and the surrounding communities across the Bay Area. We seek full and fair compensation for medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. There is no fee unless we recover for you. We hold at-fault parties accountable for their negligent actions and have won tens of millions of dollars to help our clients lead full, productive lives after their injury.

Common Symptoms of TBI

There are two types of brain injuries: major and mild. Major brain injuries happen when a piece of the brain is missing or severely damaged while mild brain injuries involve less of a physical change to the structures of the brain itself. It is important to note that while these injuries may be considered "mild" in terms of brain injuries, they are still serious and can have a substantial impact and lasting consequences.

Most brain injuries are classified as mild. These may result in a range of issues, including:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Blurred or impaired vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Confusion and memory loss
  • Slurred speech or an inability to communicate
  • Concussion or loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Changes in personality
  • Nausea
  • Dilated pupils or ringing on the ears
  • Difficulty concentrating or cognitive impairment

It is vital that you or a loved one seek medical attention after an accident. Whether you immediately exhibit the above symptoms or if they develop over time, being under the care of a doctor can help track and treat the signs of TBI while preventing the damage from getting worse. Never let brain trauma go untreated.

The next step is to talk to our Berkeley brain injury lawyers about your case. You should not have to bear the burden of high medical costs. We will help you seek damages from the negligent party or its insurance company. We will help give you the best chance of recovery.
