Posted by: Mark Albright on Thu, Apr 18, 2013Share this post
At Albright Stoddard, our Nevada and and Las Vegas auto and car accident attorneys represent individuals who have been seriously injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another person. Our Nevada Car Accident Lawyers understand the difficulties and financial hardships that a person injured in a Nevada auto accident experiences. We try to quickly analyze all aspects of the case and attempt to settle when our client’s injuries have stabilized and we can begin to asses present and future damages.
An auto accident with injuries is a horrible event in and of itself, but the aftermath of dealing with medical bills, car insurance companies, medical treatment and lost wages can be even worse in many respects. Our job as your Nevada Car Accident Attorneys is to do whatever it takes to obtain maximum financial recovery for your pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and past and future lost wages. We also can often recover damages for your loved ones, including a spouse who was not even in the vehicle. When necessary we can utilize the services of experts in the field of economic damages to help present our demands for damages. According to the Nevada Department of Transportation, there are more than 50,000 car accidents a year in our State, and approximately one-third of those accidents result in personal injuries.
Immediately after a car accident, it is highly likely that either your car insurance company or the insurance company of the person that caused the accident will try to contact you within the first several days. We request that our car accident victims not speak to an insurance company representative without speaking to one of our lawyers first. Let us handle those negotiations for you. We offer free consultations, so please do not hesitate to call us at 702-384-7111. Generally a much higher settlement can be made when experts and attorneys study the facts and law before jumping to accept the first low-ball offer that the carrier offers the accident victims.
Once we are retained, we take care of everything so that you can focus on receiving the best medical treatment possible and recovering as quickly as you can. We assist our clients with the process of obtaining doctors appointments and medical treatment, so that they can receive the best medical care possible in an expeditious manner. We immediately begin to investigate your car accident, so that we can determine who is responsible for causing your injuries and whether they have any insurance or assets to compensate you for your injuries. In order to make a financial recovery, we must prove that our client was not liable for causing the accident. We often take one of our experts, such as an accident reconstruction expert, to the scene of the accident to take measurements and study the vehicles and skid marks etc. to help us determine fault and negligence as soon as possible. Since these are contingency fee cases, we only get paid if we receive a recovery on behalf of our clients. It is not unusual for one or more of our attorneys to immediately go to the scene of the accident, take photos, and analyze the vehicles with experts, before critical evidence disappears.
Carelessness driver negligence comes in many forms, and car accidents are frequently the result of:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failure to yield
- Failure to stop
- Excessive speed
- Lane-change violation
- Driver fatigue
- Reckless driving
Most vehicle accident cases in Nevada are settled with an auto insurance company and not the individual that caused your injuries. In other words, it is typically an insurance company that will be paying for your damages rather than an individual. Auto insurers are multi-billion dollar companies that typically try to challenge your claim and pay as little as possible for your injuries. This is one of the reasons they will contact the accident victim early on with low settlement offers. Our Nevada personal injury attorneys have been battling these auto insurance companies for decades and we are familiar with their tactics. Our lawyers regularly deal with these insurance companies and we know what it takes to successfully resolve a case. We demand maximum payouts for all our clients. If the case cannot settle, we do not hesitate to file suit and bring the case before the judge or jury.
