Gazda and Tadayon represented my father in a Personal Injury case. My father used their firm based on recommendations that they were both experienced trial attorneys with a reputation for achieving excellent results for their clients. Mr. Tadayon is a skillful negotiator with a great work ethic and respect for other’s integrity. Mr. Gazda’s combined experience and passion for litigating make this law firm the place where I discovered that other attorneys and doctors in town refer their cases. Highly recommended.

I had occasion to serve as a court appointed arbitrator of a few cases in which Lewis Gazda represented an injury victim in a claim for compensation. Mr. Gazda always represented his client very well by being totally in command of all of the facts of the case and presenting his client's claim in the best possible light.

I worked for Gazda & Tadayon for about four years. During that time, everyone I talked to who interacted with them as an employee, client, vendor or otherwise, had only the best things to say about them, and the firm. Afshin Tadayon and Lewis Gazda are first class attorneys who get results. I witnessed their ability of turning adversaries into lifelong referral sources. They have compassion for their clients and they care about their employees no matter what age or background they have. They are passionate and courteous. They always conducted themselves with professionalism and treated all parties with dignity and respect. Gazda and Tadayon was home to me.Mr. Gazda and Mr. Tadayon are committed to doing whatever is necessary to help their clients get the best outcome. They are not afraid to put in the hours and "walk the walk." I highly recommend Gazda And Tadayon.

After a few lawyers drop my case. My case was referred to gazda and tayadon. My case was really difficult because I had gotten into different car accidents within a day part of each. After a difficult 5 years fighting my case I can finally say it's almost finialzed. Not only did they take my cases but also won it. From the start I knew there was a possibility I wouldn't recieve a dime not only was my medical and lawyers fees covered but come to find out I'll be getting a settlement check as well. Not only are they great laywers but great negotiators. I would highly recommend them to anyone.Thank you to Gazda and Tadayon and team for all they're hard work they put into winning my cases.

I would highly recommend Lewis and Afshin.They got my bills paid and a lot more money in my pocket than I expected. They represented me for my car...
Great Lawyers very personable. Lewis is very funny and Afshin is a great person,. I can only say if you want a personal experience and not feel pressured I think these guys would be your best choice. Just dont bet Afshin on a Muhammid Ali question while driving he will win the bet ; )

I would recommend them to anyone in Las Vegas! I was in a car accident about 2 years ago and was left with burns on my arms. Thanks to Afshin Tadayon I am receiving a nice settlement that is more than i thought id ever get. I was by far the worst client, I never answered my phone and was hard to get a hold of. Afshin went above and beyond to handle my case and I am beyond grateful for that.

I had a slip and fall accident while walking my dog. I broke my ankle and thought I had a legitimate lawsuit. I was paying for a pre-paid legal service, but they weren't interested. I then contacted several of the attorneys that advertise on local TV. I was amazed that they didn't want to discuss my case in person. They disqualified me over the phone. I was eventually referred to Afshin Tadayon. I met him at his office and he agreed that I had a case. I was impressed with Mr. Tadayon from the getgo. He was professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable and confident with the outcome. I would have to say that the process went smoothly and quickly. The settlement was more than I thought it would be. I can't think of any way that it could have been any better. I couldn't believe that I was turned away by so many other attorneys. I highly recommend Mr. Tadayon.
05:12 17 Feb 15
Gotta say these two guys were great I had used them during a difficult interstate law suit and the driver at fault was all about counter action. Gazda and Tadayon really put my recovery first, all the doctors and treatment never came out of my pocket great settlement.
16:24 22 Apr 14
My experiences with Gazda & Tadayon are truly amazing. These attorneys are highly skilled and very professional when it comes to handling cases. Lewis and Afshin are always prepared to take on any sort of case that comes their way.When I was involved in a car accident, I was slightly injured but my car was wrecked! I was more concerned about how I can manage fixing my car first. Then I was told to visit the offices of Gazda & Tadayon to get a FREE consultation. Money is tight for me so I can't be spending much when my car is totalled! After we spoke, it wasn't much later til my case had begun. Then in no time, my case had been settled and the amount of compensation that these personal injury attorneys had got for me was outstanding. My car was fixed! Most of all my medical bill was taken care of!I can't thank these two hard working men enough!Definitely give Gazda & Tadayon two thumbs up!!

Gazda & Tadayon have been very helpful. After my car accident took place I was referred to them from one my clients. I went to them and expained my situation and they took the reins. They are hands down the best personal injury lawyers in Las Vegas. Thank you so much!

What To Do When Involved In an Accident Resulting in a Brain or Head Injury
The weight of sudden medical expenses, physical and emotional suffering, and loss of work time can be heavy on a brain injury victim and their close family and friends. Luckily, victims can often sue for damages if they sustained the injury because of the misconduct or negligence of another person or entity. This can sometimes include cases where the victim is partially responsible for the incident that led to brain injury.
There’s a long list of persons and entities that can potentially be sued for a traumatic brain injury due to negligence. This includes vehicle drivers, truck drivers, trucking companies, cab drivers, cab companies, bicycle operators, boat operators, repair shops, manufacturers, homeowners, employers, airplane operators, teachers, caregivers, security guards, and doctors/healthcare providers.
The spouse of someone who has been injured can also file a lawsuit based on the loss of consortium. These are damages that take into consideration the loss of comfort, care, and companionship of the injured party.
For a case to be successful, there must be proof that the negligent third-party was liable for the incident, otherwise known as due diligence or a duty of care. Even if the victim was partially responsible for the incident, they may be entitled to compensation as long as they can prove they are liable for less than half of the incident. In turn, this percentage of fault is reflected in the costs collected.
If the brain injury is diagnosed as severe, financial compensation could be very substantial.
The damages that an injured person may seek to include lost current and future income, medical treatments, long-term rehabilitation services (including physical therapy), assisted living services, issues with general pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment and other impairments to daily life.
Because of the complex nature of personal injury law in Nevada, it’s critical that you explore your legal options and potentially file for damages as soon as possible. Our state law limits the amount of time after an incident that a victim can file for damages and claim compensation. Contact us today to assess your individual case in a timely manner.
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a major cause of disability and death in the US. Each year, almost 300,000 people are diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries according to the CDC, so these injuries are more common than people might think. Falls are the most common cause of head injuries: around 40-50% of head injury cases are related to falls. Anyone can experience a TBI, but the most vulnerable are children and the elderly.
Depending on the severity, there are different symptoms that a victim might experience. There are three levels of brain injury: mild traumatic brain injuries, moderate traumatic brain injuries, and severe traumatic brain injuries.
Symptoms are often subtle and delayed, so you should seek medical attention immediately after an accident involving the head or brain.
Your legal claim depends on the specific circumstances of the brain injury. Slip and fall accidents, motor vehicle accidents, intentional harm (such as a fistfight, or strangulation-induced anoxia), and other impacts usually come under the personal injury or premises liability umbrella, and in some cases there may be a separate criminal action.
Depending on the seriousness of your injury, and the extent to which the injury has negatively affected your life, you may be eligible for a substantial damage award. With serious brain injuries, you may require continuing and long-term cognitive/psychological/physical therapy, which may be beyond your financial means.
Though it’s better to bring your claim as soon as possible after the accident, your claim may not necessarily be destroyed. Depending on your state, the statute of limitations may not have run out. You may be able to rely your state’s discovery rule: essentially, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until you actually discover or know about the injury.
This depends entirely on each individual case. There are many types of brain/head injuries, ranging from sports-related concussions to severe, permanent brain damage that leads to paralysis or early death.
The monetary costs of living with a traumatic brain injury can be staggering. The victim might need to pay for medical bills, rehabilitation, physical therapy, multiple surgeries and medication. Also, many brain/head injury victims can no longer work. Some studies cited by the CDC estimate that these costs total $76.5 billion in the United States every year.
Also known as concussions, mild traumatic brain injuries (or mild TBIs) are the most common types of brain injuries. They typically do not leave a person with long-term effects after the injury, but even short-term symptoms can still be worrying and costly for the victim and their close family and friends.
Causes of Mild Traumatic Injuries
Mild TBIs can often occur during a person’s daily routine. Some common causes of mild traumatic brain injuries include:
Some of the symptoms that are related to mild brain injuries include:
Brief loss of consciousness
Loss of balance
Insomnia or excessive sleeping
Mild brain injuries can also occur when a person is abused. Whether it is domestic, elder or parent-child, mild brain injuries can occur after the head has been subjected to numerous blows, strikes, blunt force trauma, and neglect and abuse by a caregiver.
This is the second most common type of brain injury. Persons with moderate TBIs can exhibit more symptoms, and as a result, they often experience more physical, mental and emotional discomfort. Long-term rehabilitation may be needed.
Some common causes for moderate TBIs include: slip and fall incidents, falling from a small height, minor and major vehicle accidents, and domestic violence.
As the name suggests, severe traumatic brain injuries have the greatest and most dire impacts on a victim’s health and lifestyle, and they inevitably affect loved ones and close colleagues. It is difficult to conduct day-to-day activities while suffering from severe TBI, and medical treatment can be intensive. Long-term rehabilitation is often needed.
Some common causes of severe traumatic brain injuries include contact sports, violent crime, major vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and work accidents.
Symptoms of Severe Brain Injury
Unfortunately, while traumatic brain injuries are quite common, medical research still lags behind in this field. Many brain injury patients have complex and often variable conditions, and it can be difficult for them to express the changes they experience after a severe brain injury. Beyond just the physical and cognitive problems, there is also a lot of emotional turmoil involved with a brain injury as a victim has to cope with a new, often confusing state of mind and they can often no longer conduct activities to the same degree as before the injury.
A full recovery is possible in some cases, but many sufferers of severe traumatic brain injury have to cope with symptoms in the long-term, possibly even for a lifetime. In the worst cases, a severe brain injury may lead to permanent disability or even wrongful death.
Because of the complex nature of brain/head injury law in Nevada, it’s critical that you explore your legal options and potentially file for damages as soon as possible. Our state law limits the amount of time after an accident that a victim can file for damages and claim compensation. Contact us today to assess your individual case in a timely manner.
