Day & Nance represents individuals in the Las Vegas and Southern Nevada area who have sustained a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries claims over a million new victims each year in the United States. These injuries usually result when some object suddenly and violently collides with a person's head, or an object penetrates the skull and damages brain tissue.
Depending on the amount of brain damage, traumatic brain injuries can range in severity from mild concussions to coma or even death. In the United States, over five million survivors of traumatic brain injuries experience some form of permanent disability.
People suffer traumatic brain injuries in a broad range of accidents:
- Car Accidents. In a collision, a driver may suffer a traumatic brain injury if his head strikes the front windshield in a rear-end crash, or her head strikes the side window in a side-impact crash. If a seat belt fails and a passenger is ejected from the vehicle, he is also at risk of a traumatic brain injury.
- Sporting Events. If a rider is thrown off a horse and lands on her head, she may suffer a traumatic brain injury as well as a spinal cord injury. Persons who dive in shallow waters and strike the bottom of a pool, lake or pond with their head also risk a traumatic brain injury.
- Work Accidents. Persons at a construction site are also at risk of a traumatic head injury if they fall from scaffolding or a roof, or are struck by a swinging or falling heavy object.
