Brain Injury Attorneys in Las Vegas
Handling Traumatic Brain Injury Cases in Nevada
A brain or head injury is a serious medical condition, even when there are no obvious signs of cuts, bleeding, or other physical damage. Major health risks can emerge if a brain injury goes undiagnosed, which is why it is important to get immediate medical care after suffering a blow to the head or being involved in any type of accident that resulted in a head injury. You simply cannot afford to ignore the trauma you have suffered, even though the cost of medical treatment may seem daunting. If someone else was responsible for the accident that led to your head or brain injury, you may not have to face the financial—and non-financial—consequences of your injury alone.
At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, our Las Vegas brain injury attorneys can review your case and the circumstances of your injuries to determine who is responsible so we can hold them accountable for your full financial recovery.
Contact us today at (702) 505-8115 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. We can travel to you if your injury prevents you from coming to our office.

Throughout the United States, there are an estimated 2.5 million cases of brain injuries each year. A brain injury can cause physical, emotional, cognitive, and psychological damage to victims. The symptoms and effects of a brain injury can be short-term, long-term, or permanent in nature. A traumatic brain injury could have severe, life-altering effects.

- 50,000 deaths occur annually
- Over 90,000 long-term disabilities each year
Treatment for Brain Injuries
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for brain injuries, but advances in medical technology have allowed for better treatment and long-term care options that help mitigate the damage and help improve the injured person’s quality of life. With the help of medical treatment and ongoing rehabilitation programs, brain injury victims can slowly heal from their injuries and move forward with confidence—but these treatments cost money.
Brain injury healthcare costs are some of the most expensive in the country, which is why it is important to talk with a Las Vegas brain injury attorney after suffering a head injury. An attorney can help you seek compensation from the liable party so you are not left paying for costly brain injury care out of your own pocket. Each person who suffers a brain injury will have unique medical needs. We can help determine the full cost of your injury, including projected future expenses, in order to build a case that meets all of your recovery needs.
When Should I Seek Medical Care for a Head or Brain Injury?
It is recommended that you seek immediate medical attention if you or someone you know experiences any of the following symptoms:

If you or another person is showing any of the above signs of a brain injury or has suffered obvious head trauma, call 9-1-1 right away.
