Brain Stem Injury
Oakland Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Attorneys
Located beneath the cerebrum and in front of the cerebellum, the brain stem is the part of the brain that connects the spinal cord to the rest of the brain. It has control over involuntary muscles, such as the stomach and heart, and also relays messages from the brain to the rest of the body. It is responsible for many important functions in the body. Damage to the brain stem can cause significant short-term and long-term problems. The San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos represent clients in accidents resulting in all types of brain injuries. We can help you get the medical treatment that you need and the compensation that you deserve to get through the recover process.

Trauma and impact to the base of the head can make the brain stem vulnerable to serious injury. Although very small, body functions can be disrupted and disabilities can develop if the brain stem is damaged. Consequences of a brain stem injury may include:
- Memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating and staying focused
- Trouble walking and balancing
- Loss of strength
- Loss of sex drive and other behaviors
- Cognitive problems
In some cases, when these injuries are treated in time, people can resume normal lives and get back to where they were before their accidents. In the worst cases, brain injury victims will require medical care for the rest of their lives. We will review your case and pursue the maximum benefits that you need for the present and the future.
