Las Vegas Brain Injury Attorneys
Traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI, happens when the brain is damaged as the result of a collision or external impact.
The harm is internal and the symptoms can be subtle. For this reason, TBI is sometimes called a “silent epidemic.”
The leading causes are:
- Car accidents
- Being struck by or against something

What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
The brain is made of neural networks that send messages throughout the body to control functions such as thinking, seeing, hearing and muscle movement. The soft tissue of the brain is protected by the skull. When the head receives a violent, external jolt – such as in a car wreck – the brain is slammed against the hard bony interior of the skull. This can damage the neurons and impair brain function, resulting in TBI.
No two TBI cases are the same. There are many different types of brain injuries, and the effects can be severe. Symptoms can vary depending on the cause, location and severity of the initial trauma. Often TBI is undiagnosed and untreated. A patient can be sent home from the emergency room after a car accident without anyone – including the treating physician – being aware that a severe internal brain injury has occurred. Not until days or perhaps months later do signs of a serious problem begin to surface.
Consequences of traumatic brain injury can include:
• Headaches, including sharp pain in the temples or forehead
• Memory loss
• Difficulty concentrating and maintaining mental focus
• Fatigue, dizziness and vertigo
• Struggling to find the right words for familiar objects
• Feeling overwhelmed by noise or crowds
• Loss of balance and motor skills
• Blurred vision or clouded eyesight
• Difficulty hearing
• Loss of self-esteem
• Depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts
