Berkeley Brain Injury Attorneys

The effects of a traumatic brain injury can be devastating for both victims and their families. While family and friends can help you with childcare, household chores, and transportation to your doctor’s appointments, nothing can reverse the damage done by your accident.  If someone else was liable for your injuries, our brain injury attorneys can help you pursue compensation for your losses. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have decades of collective experience representing victims of traumatic brain injuries. Throughout the years, we have recovered more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts, a substantial portion of which was in cases involving catastrophic brain injuries.

Types of Brain Injury Claims Our Berkeley Personal Injury Attorneys Handle

At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our team has the experience necessary to help our clients navigate claims involving:

  • Car accidents 
  • Slip and falls 
  • Assaults 
  • Sporting accidents 
  • Other types of cases resulting in traumatic brain injuries

When to Seek Treatment for Your Brain Injury

The danger of brain injuries is that many symptoms may not present until after your accident. These symptoms can be serious and even life-threatening. Common symptoms include:

  • Persistent headaches 
  • Loss of consciousness 
  • Confusion and disorientation 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing of the ears 
  • Mood swings
  • Depression and anxiety 
  • Disrupted sleep patterns 

The severity of your symptoms will likely depend on the seriousness of the trauma you sustained in the accident. Some symptoms may not manifest for days or even weeks, so any symptoms – no matter how minor – warrant immediate medical attention.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire A Brain Injury Lawyer?

When you’re juggling medical bills and other costs, the thought of paying for legal representation may be completely overwhelming. Many clients delay consulting a lawyer for fear of being unable to foot the bills.  However, at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we offer free consultations and handle our brain injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means that if we don’t settle or win your case, you will not pay any fees – and the fees and costs you pay will come out of your settlement.

Compensation for Brain Injuries

Our team can assist you in seeking compensation for physical, emotional, and financial damages stemming from a brain injury. These damages are referred to as “compensatory damages” and include compensation for the following losses, among others:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses 
  • Lost wages and reduced future earning potential  
  • Physical pain and suffering  
  • Emotional distress  
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability  
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Property damage
