Every year, approximately 1.7 million people sustain brain injuries severe enough to warrant medical treatment. TBIs contribute to about one-third of all injury-related deaths in the United States. Some head injuries of this type cause little more than a headache and momentary unconsciousness. Others lead to lifelong disability, long-term coma, or even death.
After a serious head injury, months or years of medical treatment and rehabilitation are not uncommon. You may need to learn to walk and talk again, you might have difficulty comprehending or remembering, or you could notice significant emotional changes like depression or anxiety.
A broad range of accidents can result in head injuries. Blunt force trauma that occurs during a slip and fall or a car accident can cause a TBI. In some cases, severe concussions are caused when the brain impacts the skull even when no other contact with the head has been made.
Once your condition has stabilized, it’s important to obtain legal advice from an attorney who is experienced with brain injury cases. Our attorneys will help determine whether your injuries were caused by the negligent, intentional, or reckless actions of another party. We will review your medical records to evaluate the extent of your injuries and the long term consequences you now face. We’ll gather evidence, talk to witnesses, and negotiate with insurers to try to reach a favorable settlement. And from the very beginning, we’ll begin preparing your case for court. Since we assume the financial risk of pursuing damages on your behalf, you won’t need to pay any upfront costs.
If your TBI is the result of negligence, Nevada law grants you the right to seek compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages as long as you were less than 50% responsible for the accident. If it is determined that you are partially to blame for your TBI, your recovery amount will be reduced accordingly.
If the other party’s insurance policy does not fully cover your losses, additional compensation may be recovered from the individual who was at fault. In some cases, multiple entities may be to blame. Our attorneys go to great lengths to ensure that every party who contributed to your injury is held liable.
Once we have been retained to represent you, the process of recovering compensation can begin. Our team will start with a review of your medical records. We may involve a TBI expert, doctor, or nurse to explain your injuries and how they will impact your future. Our firm will launch an investigation into the accident and the person who was at fault. Reconstructing the accident may be necessary to prove liability. Our goal is to discover as much information as possible about the accident and the other driver’s insurance policy and assets.
If your loved one suffered a TBI and can no longer make decisions on his or her own, you may be able to file for compensation on that person’s behalf. We can help you obtain documentation to show your family member is unable to make decisions and that you are legally able to do so.
