Contact us before you talk to an insurance company or sign any insurance paperwork after an accident. You may be settling for less than you deserve for your injuries – studies show that people represented by an attorney get much more money than those who try and settle their own insurance claim. You will meet with Ryan from your first consultation. We handle these cases on a “contingency fee” which means that we take a percentage of the settlement, and if we don’t get you money, you don’t owe us a fee.
Although settlement is advantageous in most cases, and nearly all of our claims settle with the insurance company without a lawsuit, we are ready and willing to take your case to a full trial with aggressive and prepared representation. An attorney will handle your case and we pride ourselves on personal, attentive service. We handle cases for automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, boating accidents, aviation accidents, wrongful death, product defects and medical malpractice.

Types of Injury Cases
There are generally two types of injury cases: 1) where someone intentionally hurts you with their actions, and 2) where someone hurts you because they didn’t do something they were supposed to (this is called “negligence”). Intentional cases are obviously easier to prove, as you need to show that someone did an action and that action hurt you, causing “damages.” Damages can be to your property, to your physical body, or emotional damage that causes distress or extreme emotions. Intentional cases are more often seen in cases for assault and battery and defamation.
It is more common in accident cases to be based in “negligence,” which means that the other person had a duty to do something (like pay attention to the road and drive safe), they didn’t do that (by looking at their cell phone or driving drunk), and their not performing the duty caused you to suffer damages (when their car hits yours and hurts you). Before we take a case, we need to be sure that there was some responsibility by the other person and that their “breach” of that responsibility was the real cause of your injury. Sometimes we find that people have been severely injured, but it may not have been the fault of the party they want to bring an action against – the other side had no responsibility for the injury (but note: Nevada does allow lawsuits even if you may be partly at fault). Damages are also an important consideration: we also encounter occasions where the other side has really not done what they are supposed to do, and have clearly breached their duty, but there are no damages to the client. However, we find in many cases that clearly there was a duty which was breached and that was the cause of the client’s injury, and that is a case where compensation for injuries is most likely. Given the complexity of personal injury cases, we want you to talk to us in a free personal injury consultation to determine what kind of case you have and how we can help you get the most restitution for your injuries.
