Las Vegas Top Injury Lawyers - Does Your Immigration Status Affect Your Lawsuit?

Many car crashes in Nevada (and across America) involve undocumented immigrants. This usually puts those immigrants in fear of engaging a lawyer or filing a lawsuit for fear of deportation. A common question I get is "If I sue, and the insurance company finds out that I am illegal, won't they deport me?" The simple answer is that it is against the rules. It is not relevant to your case and they SHOULD leave it alone. The practical answer is that some insurance companies are so evil that they may stoop to that tactic, but personally, in over ten years of practice, I have yet to see it.Plaintiff's Immigration Status is Irrelevant
In Nevada we are able to file Motions In Limine which essentially ask the Judge (prior to trial) to keep Insurance Defense Counsel from mentioning anything regarding our Client's immigration status because it is irrelevant to the facts of the case. This motion has typically been upheld throughout the State Courts of Nevada barring certain extreme circumstances.

Car Crash? Protect Yourself and Your Family

Car accidents are jarring. They can shake you to your core, leaving you unaware of how to respond or react. Despite their stressful, shocking, and frightening nature, it is possible to prepare accordingly so as to ensure you follow protocol and keep everyone as safe as possible. This is why it is essential you collect your thoughts and act accordingly, especially you if have any passengers in the car.

Why People Do Not Trust Insurance Companies

Recently, I published an article titled, "Statistics Show that Most Injured Victims of Car Crashes Will Call an Injury Lawyer After They Leave the Hospital, Why Is That?" In this article, I was curious to find out why, after being released from the hospital, a majority of car accident victims call personal injury attorneys. After interviewing several friends, family members, insurance adjusters, clients, and others, I discovered the number one reason that people call injury lawyers after an accident:

Las Vegas Car Accident Lawyers - To Sue Or Not To Sue

Clients always ask me, "Should we file a lawsuit?", and this question always comes up in cases where there aren't a lot of medical bills and the client was hurt but got over their injuries after a few short months. This is always a tough situation, because usually the scenario is simple: Client has X amount of medical bills, but the insurance company is only offering Y. Y does not cover X, but X is low enough where it may not be worth engaging in two to three years of litigation to fight with an insurance company.

Las Vegas Top Injury Lawyers - Minor Impact Cases

In many cases, there are very minor car accidents where there is minimal impact and low property damage. These types of cases, though small, are an Insurance Adjuster's dream. Insurance Adjusters have every excuse in the book to fight these types of cases to the bitter end. They use the fact that there is only minimal property damage to show that you should have suffered little to no injuries.

How to Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer in Vegas

There are (too) many Injury Lawyers in town! How do you choose? How do you pick the right one? Some say "No Fee if No Recovery" right? Well guess what... that's all the Injury Lawyers in town. Some say they are "Aggressive and Experienced" right? Well, I certainly hope they are! Or my personal favorite, "102 years of Combined Experience"! Just because that Lawyer has been around doesn't make him or her good, does it? Ty Detmer was in the NFL for 13 years. Who's Ty Detmer? Exactly.

Top Vegas Injury Lawyers - When The Other Side Does Not Have Insurance

In some instances you may be involved in a car accident where the other side does not have insurance or has allowed their car insurance to lapse. This is not an uncommon problem, however, if you should run into this issue make sure that you properly document the accident like you would any other accident. That means calling the police, taking pictures of property damage and bodily injuries. What Can You Do If The Other Party Is Uninsured?
The first thing you should do is contact your own insurance company and make sure you have uninsured/under-insured motorist. This means that if the other side does not have insurance (or enough insurance to cover your injuries) your own insurance company will step in and cover your damages as if they themselves were the party who hit you.
