Las Vegas Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Comprehensive Traumatic Brain Injury Representation in Nevada

A traumatic brain injury may not be obvious at first. The long-term impacts of a head injury can take a substantial amount of time to become apparent and can include a debilitating combination of short-term and long-term symptoms. In many cases, a traumatic brain injury will lead to expensive hospital stays, lost earning capacity, and a reduced quality of life.

Victims of traumatic brain injuries can experience a wide range of symptoms, including: 

  • Acute pain or soreness in the head
  • Bouts of confusion
  • Short-term or long-term memory loss or impairment
  • Seemingly random losses of consciousness
  • Difficulty seeing clearly
  • Seizures 

Some symptoms will only manifest in the short-term, while others can last for months, years, or even become permanent. Many victims of traumatic brain injuries experience permanent mood or behavioral changes or long-term cognitive disturbances. Others suffer damage to their sight, balance, or hearing abilities.

Whenever you are injured in an auto accident, as part of a slip and fall incident, or in any other scenario, you should promptly seek medical attention even if there are no apparent injuries. This is especially true if you hit your head or experience any cranial trauma. You may have experienced significant but difficult-to-immediately-detect injuries that warrant immediate medical intervention.

Auto accidents and slip and fall incidents are often triggered by another party’s negligence. In these instances, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. If your head injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you deserve to be fairly compensated. Our Las Vegas traumatic brain injury lawyers at Pitaro & Fumo, Chtd. can help you seek damages. We are familiar with how personal injury lawsuits are adjudicated in Nevada and can leverage our many decades of combined legal experience to benefit your case.

Understanding Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injuries

You will often need to be hospitalized in the wake of an incident that causes a traumatic brain injury. During this time, you will likely miss work and accumulate substantial medical bills. When your injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you can pursue legal action to recover damages for these costs, which are referred to as “economic damages.”

In addition to direct out-of-pocket costs, economic damages can include compensation for reduced earning capacity if your injury prevents you from working as much or from doing the type of work you were doing prior to the incident. They can also cover future medical expenses if your resulting condition will require ongoing care.

You can also potentially seek compensation for non-economic damages for personal injury cases involving traumatic brain injuries. Punitive damages are designed to punish the negligent party for their behavior and incentivize them to not act recklessly or maliciously in the future. These damages can provide additional relief for physical and emotional pain and suffering, disfigurement, and inconvenience.

To recover any type of damages, you will need to prove that another party’s negligence led to your injury. Our Las Vegas traumatic brain injury lawyers at Pitaro & Fumo, Chtd. can help you pursue legal action against those responsible for your condition. When you come to our firm, we will review the evidence, assess whether you have a case, and do everything possible to seek the maximum possible damages that you need to recover. 

If you or a loved one are suffering from traumatic brain injuries, do not hesitate to call (702) 623-5185 or contact us online to discuss your situation with us.
