Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys Las Vegas, Nevada
If you were hurt in a crash on the congested roadways of Las Vegas, you need to take action right away. The phrase “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” doesn’t always apply to at-fault bus drivers, truckers who are desperate to get back behind the wheel, or tourists who are just passing through. Waiting to file your personal injury claim could create complications when witnesses or other motorists need to be contacted to build your case. Waiting also hurts your case when evidence is destroyed or when you do not seek medical attention right away. Give our motor vehicle accident attorneys in Las Vegas a call today, and let’s get started.

How We Help You Make the Most of Your Recovery
Costs quickly add up in the aftermath of a crash. We strive to make sure that you recover money for the losses you’re dealing with now, as well as those you’ll likely face in the future. Before we begin negotiations with the insurance company, we’ll look at your overall health and the damages your accident caused. We’ll add up the medical bills, lost wages, and estimated damages for pain and suffering. But that’s just the beginning.
Next we’ll take a look at how your injuries will impact your life in the future. If your injuries are permanent, or serious enough to require long-term medical treatment and time away from work, we’ll make sure to add in those losses as well. We’ll consider your loss of enjoyment of life, the loss of use of any damaged body parts, and how your disability will affect your family’s future.
Once we have a ballpark figure of the damages you’ve truly sustained, that’s when we negotiate with the insurance company or other entity that caused your accident. In some cases, more than one party may be liable for your injuries, and when that happens, we’ll seek damages from them as well.

Understanding Nevada’s Comparative Fault Law in Motor Vehicle Accidents
In Nevada, you may be able to recover money after a crash even if you played a role in why the accident occurred. Nevada follows a modified comparative negligence system to determine liability in automobile wrecks. If you are less than 50% at fault for your accident, you can recover money from the other party.
There is a twist, however. When you are determined to be partially at fault, your award will be reduced according to the percentage of the accident attributable to you. If the court decides that you are 50% or more at fault, you can’t recover anything, even if your injuries are severe.
