Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer
When serious injuries occur and the negligence of another party is clearly to blame, emotions tend to run quite high. Feelings of anger, outrage and even helplessness, uncertainty, and trepidation often emerge, leaving victims to worry about how they will recover from their injuries, manage the healthcare expenses and overcome the emotional toll caused by an accident. Though it is easy to allow these types of emotions to impact decisions, those who find themselves in such circumstances need to know that they are not alone.
A Las Vegas personal injury attorney stands ready, willing and able to help accident injury victims in their time of need. No matter how self-sufficient and strong a person may be before an accident, hiring an experienced professional, only makes sense. The legal system is constructed to provide options for recourse in the aftermath of injustice, and victims have the right to seek financial compensation for losses sustained through no fault of their own. Although one important goal is to be accessible to everyone, the system is complex.
An injury attorney has spent years in law school, studied and passed the Nevada Bar Exam, and met the continuing legal education requirements imposed by the State of Nevada. The assistance from a lawyer will simplify the legal issues and develop a plan to protect an accident victim’s rights based on knowledge, understanding, and experience.
A personal injury lawyer with our firm is ready and willing to explore the facts underlying your case, assess fault, marshal evidence and construct the strongest possible arguments on your behalf.

Common Personal Injury Fact Patterns
Though most everyone has been exposed to advertisements from local personal injury attorneys touting their ability to secure high-dollar settlements and verdicts, there are many who do not fully grasp the scope of this area of the law and the variety of situations it may encompass.
Far from being limited to car crashes and retail store slip and falls, the types of cases a Las Vegas personal injury attorney can help with includes a range of potentially devastating scenarios such as:
- Bike Accident
- Bus Accident
- Worker’s Compensation
- Spinal Injury
- Pedestrian Accident
- Wrongful Death
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Catastrophic Injury
- Burn Injury
- Boat Accident
- Brain Injury
Impact of Accidents
It is no exaggeration to suggest that certain types of personal injury scenarios have the potential to bring victims and their entire families to the very brink of ruin. The physical, mental and financial wreckage can be profound, ranging from short-term incapacitation to permanent disability or worse.
Plaintiffs in personal injury matters exhibit an array of physical and emotional afflictions which may include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Soft Tissue Injuries (STI) – Contusions, Strains and Sprains
- Bone fractures
- Skin burns
- Deep lacerations/scarring
- Spinal cord damage
- Nerve damage/amputation
- Cognitive difficulties
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
The severity of the injury will impact the amount of compensation likely available in a given case, but it is incumbent upon everyone who is harmed due to another party’s negligence to investigate all avenues of legal recourse and secure the resources they will surely need to move forward.
While the accident injury victim works with health care professionals to develop a comprehensive treatment plan unique to the victim’s injuries and medical history, a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer can focus on addressing all the legal issues and identifying all potential sources of funds to pay for the medically necessary treatment.
Simply, cooperation and coordination between an accident injury victim and a lawyer has the potential to accomplish much more than the victim can accomplish on their own.
But time is of the essence. The longer the accident injury victim waits to hire a lawyer, the less effective the lawyer can be. Once the accident happens, the clock begins to run.
As provided by the Nevada legislature through NRS 11.190, the time to file a personal injury type of lawsuit is limited, and the sooner that decisive action is taken, the stronger a plaintiff’s chances of prevailing in his or her claims will be.
Types of Compensation
There can be no doubt that the toll taken by serious injury accidents can be staggering – financially, physically and mentally. If there is any solace to be taken in the days and weeks following such events, it is the fact that plaintiffs in injury lawsuits are often successful in securing critical compensation for their suffering.
An experienced personal injury attorney in Las Vegas will explore the availability of financial recovery for losses that could include:
- Past/present/future medical care
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
- Actual value of lost wages
- Reduced future earning potential
- Cost of necessary accessibility modifications to home
- Loss of marital relationship
- Loss of financial support for dependents in cases of death
- Funeral expenses
