Supporting Brain Injury Survivors and CA SB 320


As a brain injury lawyer, I’ve learned quite a bit about the complexities of acquired brain injuries, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with some exceptionally strong and admirable survivors who were awarded access to the resources necessary to thrive after sustaining a brain injury. I’ve also witnessed the tragedy of decline that occurs when survivors of brain injury are not afforded appropriate treatment opportunities.

This is why I’m voicing my support for California’s SB 320.

Brain injury is far more complicated than any other disease and requires highly specialized treatment. However, the current rehabilitation provisions afforded to individuals who acquire brain injury have arbitrary time limitations and are intended for orthopedic conditions, rather than neurologic injury. SB 320 will enable uniform, non-discriminatory and time appropriate access to the most clinically effective and cost efficient specialized treatments by established licensed treatment providers.
