Brain Injury Law Firm in Las VegasHome »
All injuries to the brain are unique. A light blow to the head may give one person a headache for an hour or two while the same blow could cause irreparable damage to another person. Perhaps the most significant legal issue is proving the full extent of the victim’s injuries. Brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose.

It can be hard to know what the medical prognosis is and whether the victim can live a normal life in the future.

Armed with that information, we know what damages to claim on your behalf, and we have the evidence to prove your case.

Get Help If You Have Signs of Brain Injury
A medical professional should evaluate anyone who has sustained a blow to the head or whiplash-like injuries to determine if the victim has experienced a TBI.
Even if symptoms are so slight that the victim does not realize that a serious injury has occurred, treatment should be sought before further injury can develop. Often the symptoms may be delayed for many hours until swelling in the brain reaches a point that if affects the victim.

Types of Brain Injury
There are several different types of head injuries. If the trauma results in damage to the skull itself, such as a crack or break, the trauma is considered a penetrating head injury.
More difficult to diagnose are closed head injuries, where the skull is not obviously damaged but the brain is still injured. This can occur from a blow or impact, or from severe back-and-forth shaking, such as whiplash.
The brain is a very complex and delicate organ. Scientists have yet to discover all of the functions of the brain and its capabilities. However, they do know that the brain can be injured very easily and the damage can last a lifetime. If that occurs, it’s important to know how to treat a brain injury.
The brain may also be injured from being shaken. This can occur in an auto accident when a severe jolt is felt by the body like when a vehicle is impacted by another. Whiplash to the neck is only one of the injuries that can occur when this happens.
Brain injuries can lead to loss of motor skills, memory, or even loss of bodily functions. It can also cause changes to the personality, with quick-to-anger responses being the most common change. These changes to body functions and personality traits can become permanent if the damage is severe.
When a person suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI), it may take years of therapy and other treatments for them to recover. In some severe cases, recovery may not be possible. Because of this, it is very important that anyone who received a TBI due to the negligence of another person or business seek legal representation.

Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation
Yes, you can win your case for a traumatic brain injury even if you don’t have visible, physical injuries. Any kind of brain trauma is a physical injury that may qualify you for compensation. In fact, many brain injuries that are very serious have no outward, visible signs at all. The most important thing that you need to win your case is medical proof that the injury occurred. Our legal team helps victims with injuries that are serious or mild. If you’re hurt, we invite you to meet with our legal team to learn about your rights and options.
How much compensation you will get for a brain injury depends on several factors. These factors include:
- The severity of your injuries
- How obvious it is that the other side is at legal fault
- The ability of the responsible party to pay the claim.
You should get compensation for a brain injury that accounts for your monetary losses like medical bills and lost wages. You should also get compensation for pain and suffering in proportion to how bad your injuries are.
Yes, you can sue for post-concussion syndrome. Post-concussion syndrome is a type of brain injury that can occur when you’re hurt in a personal injury accident.
Symptoms such as dizziness, headaches and vertigo can be present for months or years after an accident. When post-concussion syndrome symptoms persist like this, the injury can become the basis of a lawsuit, months after the accident was reported.

The laws for traumatic brain injury lawsuits in Nevada are based on negligence. The legal standard for monetary compensation for a brain injury is being hurt because the defendant failed to behave in a careful manner. It’s based on what a reasonable person should do in the same situation. You must win the case by a preponderance of the evidence, and the verdict does not have to be unanimous.
Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was in an accident November the twenty sixth, rear ended. I watched several commercials on tv after being in a lot of pain I decided to call Mr. Kutners office because I like the way that he presented himself on TV. My experience has been very good, from the girl who answers the phone all the way back to the very last person I talked to. A lady came out to see me the very next day after I made the phone call, she was very personal, very professional, and she came right to my home which saved me from looking for someone to take me into the office. I got my car within two weeks and they were very helpful in finding doctors for me, which I had to go to more than one. I would recommend Mr. Kutner. He is very personal, the staff is very personal from the telephone girl all the way down, very personal, very professional. They don’t make you feel like just a number and someone they’re working with, they make you feel like you’re at home.”
