Automobile Accident ATTORNEYS
If you've been in a car crash, you could be seriously injured and not know it for days. You need to speak to an injury lawyer.
Every year there are over 50,000 automobile accidents in Nevada. About 27,000 people are injured every year in these accidents—an average of 74 every day. In 2012, 1,099 people suffered serious injuries from traffic-related accidents, and 258 people lost their lives.
Although accident-related injuries have been on a downward trend for the last few years, there are still tens of thousands of accidents and injuries every year occurring to real people with real lives. As Las Vegas auto-accident attorneys, we work to make sure you get the treatment and compensation you need.
We strive to hold people responsible for their negligence, hoping that as a result, Nevada’s downward trend in accident-related injuries and deaths will continue.

If you are injured in a car accident, your job is to get competent medical treatment, take care of yourself, and do what you can to recuperate. It is our job to work with the insurance company, the insurance company’s counsel, and the courts, if necessary, to make sure your medical bills are paid for, you are reimbursed for time off work, your pain and suffering, and any other compensable losses you incur as a result of the accident.
How we help you recover from an accident as quickly and smoothly as possible
To maximize recovery, it is our job as your attorney to make the strongest case possible regarding (1) liability, and (2) damages.
Proving liability is another way to say we are establishing that another party has breached a duty it owed to you. Often a responding police officer will prepare a traffic accident report in which he apportions fault. Although insurance companies rely on this in making their preliminary determination of liability, and it can be valuable in settlement negotiations, the conclusions of the police officer as written in the report are not admissible against you or the opposing party, so we have to collect evidence that shows the other party is responsible for the accident.
Damages refers to money correlating with your losses. We prove damages by providing medical bills, evidence that you missed work, can no longer perform household chores, and have been experiencing pain, suffering, and/or mental anguish resulting from the accident, to name a few.
Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, as long as you are not found more than 50% at fault, you can still recover for your losses, less a reduction for your portion of the liability.
