If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury and believe someone else is to blame, contact our Las Vegas brain injury attorneys for legal counsel. You may be eligible for significant compensation for your past and future accident-related expenses.
Signs and Symptoms of Brain Injuries
The brain is an incredibly complex and intricate organ. Injuries to the brain are unique from patient to patient. Two people might suffer the exact same type of injury yet experience entirely different symptoms and effects. Many physicians say no such thing as a minor brain injury exists. The lawyers at Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP tend to agree. Brain injuries can cause symptoms such as:
- Confusion or disorientation
- Memory loss
- Loss of consciousness
- Difficulty thinking or speaking
- Motor function impairments
- Attention deficits
- Mood swings
- Nausea or vomiting
- Trouble sleeping
The symptoms someone experiences will depend upon the location and severity of the injury, injury type, and the individual him/herself. Treatment plans will also differ from person to person, as will prognoses for recovery. Some people can completely recover from brain injuries with treatments and therapies, while others will permanently live with one or more lasting symptoms. Either way, our lawyers believe brain injury victims deserve the chance to financially recover for their injuries.
Common Causes of Brain Injuries
The brain can sustain injuries in any situation that involves a blow or bump to the head. The brain can also suffer from lack of oxygen, such as during a drowning or suffocation incident. Brain injuries can be traumatic or acquired. Car accidents, falls, sports incidents, motorcycle crashes, bicycle accidents, and acts of violence are the most common causes of TBIs. Common causes of acquired brain injuries are hypoxia, or lack of oxygen, infections, tumors, and stroke. Most of these causes have something in common – someone else’s negligence. Negligence such as distracted driving, careless property ownership, medical malpractice, unsafe workplaces, and criminal acts can all result in brain injuries to others. In these cases, the person with the brain injury or his/her family members has the right to pursue compensation from the at-fault party or parties. They can do so through the Nevada civil justice system, with help from our Las Vegas brain injury lawyers at Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP.

Recovering Compensation From a Brain Injury
A brain injury can have lifelong consequences on an accident victim, it can require expensive medical treatment for years after the accident. If you or a loved one was the victim of a brain injury, you may be able to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Some of the damages that you can recover include economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages will cover for monetary losses such as medical expenses, hospital bills, rehabilitation, property damage, lost wages, and others. Non-economic damages are awarded to compensate the victim for psychological and emotional suffering caused by the accident. An experienced brain injury attorney in Las Vegas will be able to determine how much your case is worth and hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions.
