Traumatic Brain Injury
Thomas Edison was credited with saying that “The chief function of the body is carry the brain around.” That 3 pound organ which constitutes about 2% of the average human’s total body weight, is the body part which makes up 100% of who we are. It is our brain which allows us to love, to care, to feel, to plan, to remember, to communicate, to fear, to rejoice, to learn, to taste, to smell, to hear, to see, to give us wisdom, courage and understanding. The brain, in short, is the repository of our conscience, our moral reasoning, our humanity. It was the brain that the scarecrow needed to become human. In short, the brain is our universe.
We fight for those who have suffered injuries to their brains. We understand, in that fight, that this injury affects everything within that person’s universe. It affects their ability to work, their ability to enjoy life, their interpersonal relationships and their perception of themselves.
If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury as the result of carelessness by another, please consider Baratta, Russell & Baratta as your aggressive advocates and trusted advisors to guide you through this life changing injury.

the one the other will include
with ease, and you beside.
