Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be sustained after any type of accident in which an impact to the head occurs. These injuries can range from mild to completely or permanently disabling, depending on the nature of the impact and extent of damage to the brain. Any injury to the brain is serious due to the complexity and overriding function of this organ in human health. At Hofland & Tomsheck, our legal team understands the gravity of TBI, its potential life-changing consequences, and the impact such an injury may have on the patient and his or her family for months, years, or forever.Seasoned Personal Injury Litigators in Las Vegas

TBI is acquired from a blow to the head or from something penetrating the skull and entering the brain. Depending on the severity of the injury, victims may suffer a wide range of symptoms and consequences, including but not limited to:
- Mild to severe concussions
- Blurred vision
- Sleep problems
- Cognitive and behavioral problems
- Personality changes
- Loss of coordination
- Memory loss

For the more severely injured, surgery may be required to remove or repair ruptures or bruised brain tissue. In the gravest injuries, the individual may remain in a persistent coma or be permanently disabled in a vegetative state.
