Automobile & Motorcycle Accidents
Automobile accident cases need to be handled correctly, or they can last too long and result in too little recovery. For almost 30 years, we’ve been handling automobile accident cases involving serious and catastrophic injury, including deaths.
If you’ve been in an accident, do the following:
- Contact your insurance carrier to report the accident;
- Find out which auto insurance coverages you have, including UM-UIM and Med-Pay coverages;
- Get examined by your primary care physician so appropriate medical treatment can be arranged;
- Do NOT speak with representatives of the negligent driver’s insurance carrier.
- Do NOT accept a settlement without at least consulting with a personal injury lawyer first.
We can all do our part in reducing the incidence of auto accidents. Please don’t drive distracted or intoxicated, and encourage the same from your friends and family.
Slip or Trip & Fall
Planes and helicopters crash for a variety of reasons, the most common being component failure and pilot error. The investigation and work-up of aviation accidents requires the utilization of experienced experts to guide our litigation strategies, as well as a familiarity with the federal and state laws which come into play in these tragic cases.
Aviation accidents initially provoke an investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which strives to independently preserve evidence and make determinations of cause.
The NTSB’s investigation can take months and even years. We work in association with law firms around the country that specialize in aviation cases, and additionally lend our own expertise in Nevada litigation and probate practices and procedures. If you or someone you love has been injured in an aviation accident, please let us know.
On The Job Injuries
Accidents at work are handled differently than non-work-related accidents. Typically, worker’s comp benefits will be an employee’s “exclusive remedy” for obtaining compensation for a work-related accident, but there are important exceptions, such as where an independent third-party (i.e., a non-employer) has contributed to causing your injury.
- Tell your supervisor;
- Fill out the paperwork your employer provides (Form C-1/Notice of Injury or Occupational Disease (Incident Report);
- Get medical care if you need it and fill out that paperwork, as well (Form C-4/ Employee’s Claim for Compensation/Report of Initial Treatment).
We have the ability to assist you with your worker’s comp claim, and to determine if some other (non-employer) entity is also legally responsible for compensating you. Why is this important? Because if some non-employer entity also contributed to causing your injury, you can proceed with a personal injury claim against them which is not limited by worker’s comp damages.
Nursing Home Negligence
Injuries to our loved ones that happen due to neglectful practices and procedures at nursing homes are tragic and avoidable. These cases require tenacity and diligence, because these companies all too often care only about saving money and avoiding responsibility for injury claims. Documenting the circumstances surrounding the injury and the harm done needs to occur promptly.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of nursing home negligence, including but not limited to bed sores, severe dehydration, preventable falls, or outright abuse, we can help.
