Brain Injury and Your Rights

Looking for a brain injury lawyer? Look no further.

Attorney John McCarthy is widely considered one of the best brain injury lawyers in California.

He has had a perfect 10.0 rating on the independent rating site Avvo since 2014. He has been recognized by his peers as a Rising Star and by Super Lawyers since 2016. But, more importantly he knows what it’s like to suffer a brain injury. He understands what it’s like to live in that fog. He knows what it’s like to not remember basic things. He knows what it’s like to feel hours pass by like minutes, and minutes pass by like hours. See, Attorney McCarthy suffered a brain injury himself. He went into sudden cardiac arrest because of an undiagnosed genetic, heart condition. He was unconscious on his bedroom floor for seven minutes while his wife was working to save his life. John was extremely lucky to make a complete recovery. But, he knows most people who suffer brain injuries will never get that chance.

Attorney McCarthy knows most people with brain injuries will continue to suffer:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Tinnitus
  • Sensory changes
  • Memory issues
  • Feeling “foggy” or “off”
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Abnormal behavior
  • Slurred speech
  • Coma
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Convulsions
  • Abnormal dilation of the eyes
  • Inability to awaken from sleep
  • Pain
  • Weakness
  • Loss of coordination

Your brain is amazing!

Most acquired brain injuries are the result of a traumatic brain injury, sometimes called a TBI.  Traumatic brain injuries follow physical trauma or a head injury from an outside source.  Traumatic brain injuries are caused by things like blows to the head. 

Attorney McCarthy knows how terrifying brain injuries are. There is nothing as scary as coming to the realization that you cannot trust your mind, and that you might become a burden on the people you love, forever. We are understanding neuroscience better every day. The emerging fields of neuroplasticity, and our developing understandings of developmental neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, molecular and cellular neuroscience, neurogenetics, behavioral neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, neurophysiology, and sensory neuroscience mean fewer people will suffer permanent brain injuries. But, the brain is a complicated thing, and no two brain injuries are exactly the same. Unfortunately, some people will never recover.

If you have, or someone you love has, suffered a brain injury or pediatric brain injury, you need all the help you can get to ensure the best recovery possible. A brain injury attorney can help get you the resources you need to live the most fulfilling life possible.

Children’s brains are incredible.

Believe it or not, your kid’s brain generates about 70,000 thoughts per day!  So, the destruction, or degeneration of brain cells through neurotrauma, brain damage, or a brain injury can have a huge impact on your child’s life.

It’s fast, it’s free, and the clock is ticking. What do you have to lose?



Your responses will go straight to John’s inbox. John will review and respond by the end of the business day. If John thinks he can help, he’ll email you a link to schedule a free consultation with him.
