Mild traumatic brain injuries, commonly referred to as mild TBIs or mTBIs, are non-life-threatening injuries to the brain caused by a blow or bump to the head or due to violent (severe) shaking of the body and/or head.
They may lead to concussions, nausea, dizziness, headache, and confusion but do not always cause symptoms.
Mild TBIs can also cause serious effects that may last for years or sometimes even permanently damage or alter certain brain functions. Some injuries do not cause any immediate impact, but their effects may surface years later. For example, certain brain injuries may put you at a higher risk of developing dementia later in life.
For all these reasons and more, it’s important to know if you can sue someone for causing you mild TBIs in Nevada. Read on to find out!
Can You File a Claim for Mild TBIs in Nevada?
Nevada personal injury laws allow people to file claims for traumatic brain injuries. However, most people presume they only apply to severe TBIs, which isn’t true.
Filing claims for severe TBIs may be easier, but the law also permits legal action and compensation claim requests for mild traumatic brain injuries caused by someone else’s mistake or negligence. Some common causes of mild TBIs include workplace accidents, vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, sports injuries, slips and falls, and assaults.
Successful settlement of these cases, however, depends on proving the other person’s negligence, the mental, physical, and emotional effects an apparently mild brain injury has caused, and the health issues it could potentially lead to in the future. This is where we step in.
