A: much more info needed

how are you given a serious brain injury?

did someone hit you or you fall?

6 yrs later would make it 2013?

you want to look into this asap as you may have a statute of limitations issues that would bar recovery.

A: Unfortunately, you would need to provide some additional information. The normal deadline for filing a personal injury claim in California is 2 years from the date of the incident that caused your injury but, delay in diagnosis is possible. Consult with an attorney immediately on any potential claims.

A: You are well beyond the statute of limitations. Moreover, you don't provide any evidence to conclude that the brain disease was caused by, in whole or in part, the brain injury.
