    Brain Injury Network of the Bay Area

    Given the number of people and families we’ve helped over the years who’ve been touched by a loved one suffering a brain injury, we are thankful for groups like the Brain Injury Network of the Bay Area. From their website:

    “The history of BINBA is inspiring. The organization was founded in Marin County in 1985 by Karen Schurig, whose daughter Lise was involved in a near-fatal car accident at the age of 14. While Lise did survive at a time when many people with similar injuries did not, her life was severely altered by permanent disabilities from a traumatic brain injury. Unable to return to school, isolated from her peers, Lise was confined to living at home with 24- hour care.

    Once Lise was released from the hospital, Karen as a single mother, found herself suddenly thrust in the role of primary financial and emotional caregiver for her daughter. She quickly realized that there was a lack of non-medical rehabilitative services, such as support groups and therapeutic classes, to help them successfully transition into their new roles and to help Lise continue to heal. In need of help and desiring to break the social isolation associated with living with a brain injury, Karen founded the community of BINBA.

    Today, 28 years later, BINBA has grown to be a ‘hub’ of services for survivors of brain injury and their families and as a resource for medical professionals and the community at large. Operating with a limited annual budget of approximately $500,000 and a small team of dedicated professionals, the organization served over 320 survivors and caregivers this past year. Originally BINBA served primarily traumatic brain injury survivors – today over 30% served are stroke survivors and their families. BINBA is unique in the Bay Area in its focus on providing a coordinated network approach to post-acute brain injury rehabilitation.”

    "In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years."
