motorcycle accidentsMotor vehicle accidents are the most common type of personal injury claims and lawsuits that are filed in and Las Vegas. After being injured in an accident, victims often ask us about when to bring one or the other. Under Nevada law, you have two years from the date of an accident to bring a lawsuit. You really shouldn’t wait that long though. The first step you should take after leaving the emergency room is to speak with the Las Vegas car accident lawyers here at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright. It won’t cost you a penny to consult with an experienced and effective personal injury lawyer from our accident law firm in Vegas.

Some Common Car Accident Injuries
Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright has been helping clients for more than 60 years. Given our decades of experience, here are some of the more common motor vehicle accident injuries that we’ve seen over the years:

  • Traumatic brain injuries like concussions
  • Herniated spinal discs or whiplash
  • Fractures and joint damage
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Tissue damage to muscles, tendons and ligaments

Protect Your Rights
After being injured in a crash, our best advice is to call 911 to report the accident, document your injuries at a hospital emergency room and retain us as your Las Vegas car accident lawyers. We will monitor your medical progress and lost time from work, and based on what we learn about the nature and extent of your injuries, we will either recommend continuing to work on your injury claim with the opposing insurance company or filing a lawsuit on your behalf.

Don’t give any type of a statement to the opposing insurer. Nevada law doesn’t require you to do that, and that insurer will only try to use your own words against you in the future to attack your credibility. Contact our accident law firm in Vegas instead for that free consultation. Whether it’s a claim or a lawsuit, we’ll guide you through the process.
