When should I file my traumatic brain injury lawsuit in Las Vegas?

In Nevada, victims have a time limit of two years from the date of the accident to file their lawsuit. If you file your lawsuit after two years have passed, the courts will decline to listen to your case, and you will not have the ability to seek compensation. It is also important to keep in mind that these two years may change depending on the circumstances of the accident. That is why we recommend that you speak to our Heidari Law Las Vegas attorneys as soon as possible to determine when the right time is to file your lawsuit.

What should I do after an accident in Las Vegas?

You never know what accident may cause brain injuries. That is why we recommend that as soon as you have been involved in an accident, you speak to a medical provider to determine if you have suffered any type of brain injuries. Medical providers will run several different types of diagnostic tests, including imaging to determine if you have suffered any injuries.

What are the Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of injury to the brain that is caused by a sudden impact or jolt to the head. It is very important to seek medical care after a severe accident. Usually, traumatic brain injury symptoms occur a couple of days after an accident. Many do not even know that they have a traumatic brain injury until they seek medical treatment. That means that you could walk out of an accident completely fine, and then experience traumatic brain injury symptoms later. The symptoms of TBI can range from mild to severe and can include:

  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Dizzyness
  • Nausea
  • Loss of Balance
  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Paralysis
  • Difficulty balancing
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sensory impairment
  • Numbness
  • Insomnia
  • Sleeping a lot after an accident
  • Memory loss and confusion
  • Depression
  • Vomiting
  • Changes in mood and mood swings
  • Attention issues

It’s important to note that symptoms of TBI can appear immediately after the injury or may develop slowly over time. Some symptoms may resolve quickly, while others can persist for an extended period of time or even be permanent. If you have experienced any of the above symptoms after an accident, it is very important that you seek medical attention immediately. Medical treatment could detect the traumatic brain injury prior to you even suffering any symptoms. Oftentimes, a traumatic brain injury could also be very difficult for doctors to detect. If you have been involved in an accident, constantly be on the lookout for any symptoms suffered from the traumatic brain injury. If the symptoms of traumatic brain injury are later felt, do not hesitate to seek assistance from your medical care provider.

What type of damages could I be awarded in my traumatic brain injury claim in Las Vegas?

Brain injuries could change your life forever, and could impact every single part of your life. Damages can be sought in the event your brain injury is at the fault of another person.

You might seek damages to compensate you for:

  • Lost wages: a brain injury will most likely impact the way that you work. The way that you used to work prior to your injury may be different than the way you work after your injury. For example, you may not even have the ability to hold the same position as you did prior to the injury. You will be able to recover the compensation difference.
  • Surgeries and medical costs: it takes multiple surgeries to treat someone with a brain injury.
  • Physical Therapy: usually, brain injuries may impact the way a victim may move around physically. They may need years of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
  • Punitive damages: if the accident was caused with malice, then you have the right to file a claim for punitive damages with the court. Malice is determined to be severe negligence, and punitive damages are only awarded in certain circumstances, such as drunk driving accidents. For more information on punitive damages, contact our attorneys today.
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of affection
  • Damage to property

It’s possible to also seek punitive damages because of the injury.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when there has been a significant force while you are in the car. This violent movement and jolt could cause severe neck injuries, along with traumatic brain injuries. Usually, those who have suffered whiplash may have symptoms weeks after the accident. Unfortunately, whiplash is one of the main causes of traumatic brain injury. This occurs when a hernia is formed in the brain at the base of the skull.

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Insurance Companies

An insurance company will always try to downplay their liability; therefore they may argue that any traumatic brain injury suffered was a pre-existing condition, or dismiss the accident as a low-impact case. Our experienced and top-rated traumatic brain injury attorneys will communicate with the insurance parties for you to make sure that your rights are well-represented, and no third-party downplays your claim. We have decades of experience fighting against insurance companies in order to make sure that they pay people what they are entitled to.

What factors do our attorneys consider in a traumatic brain injury claim?

When determining what type of compensation, you could receive for your injuries, along with who the at-fault party may be, our attorneys consider the two following questions.

  • What are the circumstances of the traumatic brain injury claim?
  • How severe was the traumatic brain injury?

How much is my traumatic brain injury case worth?

The value of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) case will depend on several factors, including the severity of the brain injury, the impact it has had on the person’s quality of life, the extent of lost wages and medical expenses, and any other damages that may have been incurred as a result of the brain injury accident. It is difficult to determine the exact value of a TBI case without thoroughly gathering evidence, reviewing it, and evaluating the specific circumstances of the brain injury.
It’s important to understand that a TBI case is complex and can be difficult to evaluate. We have to evaluate the full extent of the brain injury and other injuries, and its impact on the person’s quality of life that may not be immediately apparent. Some of the common factors that may impact the value of a TBI case include the type and amount of medical treatment required, the amount of time the person was unable to work, and the possible long-term effects of the brain injury, which includes cognitive and physical limitations for the injured person.
If you have sustained a TBI and are looking to make a legal claim, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced TBI personal injury attorney. A TBI attorney can help you understand your rights, gather evidence and information to support your claim, and negotiate a fair settlement and represent you in court.
How can I prove a brain injury in Las Vegas?

Usually, brain injuries are caused by a negligent party. In order to prove that the other party was negligent, you must show:

  • The other party had a duty to act in a reasonable manner, and to practice reasonableness to prevent any accidents
  • Defendant failed to act within that duty of care
  • The defendant’s actions caused the accident
  • The plaintiff, also known as the victim, suffered damages and injuries.

Although it may seem clear-cut, it takes a highly experienced attorney to represent victims in a brain injury lawsuit. Just failing to meet one element could have the entire case thrown out.

What should I do after an accident in Las Vegas?

That is why we recommend that as soon as you have been involved in an accident, you speak to a medical provider to determine if you have suffered any type of brain injuries.
