Redlands Brain Injury Attorneys
Brain injuries are devastating and life-altering. While accident victims can pursue monetary compensation for their medical treatment, there is simply no figure that will alleviate the physical, emotional, and psychological trauma caused by a serious accident. These effects can be particularly painful when someone else’s negligence was to blame.
If you believe that someone is at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, the brain injury team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help. Throughout the years, we have recovered more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts, a substantial portion of which was in accidents resulting in serious brain injuries. We encourage you to call us at 1-800-GO-HARRIS for a free, no-risk consultation. If you are unable to travel, we will come to you.
The Lasting Impact of Traumatic Brain Injuries
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our experienced, compassionate brain injury attorneys have represented clients in a broad range of brain injury cases. Generally, brain injuries are categorized as one of two types: traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and acquired brain injury (“ABI”). ABI describes any type of head injury that is not the result of a birth injury or a hereditary or degenerative condition. This may include stroke, tumors, infectious disease, or a lack of oxygen supply to the brain. On the other hand, TBI is a specific type of ABI that results from external force aimed at the brain or nervous system.
In addition to concussions (minor TBIs) and moderate-to-severe TBIs, our brain injury lawyers also represent victims suffering from the following conditions, among others:
- Closed head injuries
- Open head injuries
- Brain hemorrhages
- Anoxic and hypoxic brain injuries
- Diffuse brain injuries

When to Seek Treatment for A Traumatic Brain Injury
The danger of TBI is that many symptoms may not present until after your accident. These symptoms can be serious and even life-threatening.
Common TBI symptoms include, among others:
- Persistent headaches
- Loss of consciousness
- Confusion and disorientation
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in 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.
