There are many known complications that commonly result from traumatic brain injuries, such as headaches, an inability to concentrate or work, memory loss, reduced verbal abilities and more.

Family seeks road changes after San Diego accident fatality

After a San Diego grandmother was struck by a speeding car and killed, her family is seeking change.

Death of San Diego man may lead to wrongful death suit

After a San Diego man died while in police custody, his family asked police and other county officials why their brother and son passed away so suddenly and whether he was mistreated in the hours before his death.

They are now considering a wrongful death lawsuit, hoping that it will compel authorities to give them the information they are looking for and that it will bring them closure.

California could save 133 lives with stricter teen driving laws

Although every state has some form of graduated licensing laws for teenage drivers, a new report indicates that stricter laws could save 2,000 lives if implemented universally throughout the country.
