Las Vegas Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Serving Las Vegas with Outstanding Legal Representation for Decades
The possibility of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the primary reason
it is recommended you have a full physical workup by a qualified physician
after any accident. No matter if you suffer a concussion, a brain bleed,
or a significant disruption of oxygen supply, a TBI is a serious condition
that could have lasting effects if left untreated.
Treatment for TBI is often specialized and therefore expensive, so if you
or a loved one has suffered brain injury due to the actions of another,
you should pursue damages. At Oronoz, Ericsson & Gaffney LLC, our
Las Vegas personal injury lawyers can build a strong case for fault and fight for maximum compensation in
What Causes TBI?
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by any incident in which the brain
impacts the skull or is quickly or harshly mobilized outside of normal
movement. These damages are often caused by violence such as assault or
reckless conduct, motor vehicle accidents such as
DUI accidents, head-on collisions, being
hit by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian, or car explosions.
If you have been subject to brute force and have not sought medical help,
you should do so immediately. Because a brain injury is internal, evidence
of TBI may not be immediately apparent – but the damage could be
lasting. If the injury is a result of the actions of another, you should
seek compensation for your damages.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Whenever you or a loved one suffers brute force to the head, whether through
direct contact or sudden movement, you should immediately seek an examination
by a health care professional in case TBI is present. Symptoms will vary
depending on which part of the brain is affected and how hard it is impacted,
and may be delayed by hours, days, or even weeks.
If you are subjected to a strong force of motion or contact and exhibit
any of the following symptoms, you could have a TBI:
- Loss of consciousness
- State of confusion or disorientation
- Slurred speech
- Nausea and / or vomiting
- Sensory changes like photosensitivity or audiosensitivity
- Difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
Even what seems like a mild concussion can have severe consequences if
not properly treated and monitored. Because the brain is such a critical
part of human life, it could be an expensive healing process. However,
if the negligence or recklessness of another was involved, competent legal
counsel can aggressively pursue maximum compensation for damages incurred
so you won’t have to worry about the financial burden.
