Types of personal injury cases we handle include:

Whether you were injured in a rear-end collision, head-on collision, T-bone accident or any other type of car crash, we may be able to help.
- Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians often suffer from serious injuries when drivers fail to yield or ignore traffic laws and signals. If you were injured while crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk, we can help you pursue compensation from the negligent driver’s insurance company.
- Animal attacks: If you were attacked by a dog or any other pet, the pet owner will typically be liable for any injuries that you suffer. If you want more information about this type of claim, then don’t hesitate to contact an attorney right away. You may be able to target a pet owner and seek damages that will cover your medical bills and lost wages during recovery.

Answers To Common Personal Injury Questions
The first step to filing a personal injury claim is to understand some of the Nevada laws surrounding the practice area. Our legal team has assembled answers to some of the most common questions we hear in our Las Vegas offices.
How much time do I have to file a claim in Nevada against a negligent party?
In general, personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. However, there are a few exceptions. If you are bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit, you have two years from the date you discover your injury, or four years from the date of the underlying procedure. If your injuries stem from a construction defect, you have up to 10 years from the date of completion to file your case.
What happens if I was partially at fault for an injury on someone else’s premises? Can I still collect?
Maybe. One key factor in understanding fault when you’re injured on someone else’s premises is why you were on the property in the first place. If you were at a store to buy something, or you were at a friend’s house to eat dinner with them, you are not expected to investigate the property for every possible danger. The property owner must make some effort to warn you of the dangers. On the other hand, if you didn’t take steps to avoid an obvious danger (like walking around a giant hole in the floor or into a visible spill of a slippery liquid), your injury lawsuit might not survive in court.
If you were trespassing on someone’s property, the owner has very little legal obligation to protect you from hazards.
What damages can you collect for injuries in Las Vegas?
There are two main categories of damages listed in a personal injury lawsuit under Nevada law: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include income lost because you were unable to work after the accident, unpaid medical bills related to the accident, the projected cost of your future care, and any damage to your property (for example, if you were driving your own car in a car accident and it was damaged beyond repair). Non-economic damages include those intended to address the pain and suffering that the accident has caused you, such as loss of enjoyment, PTSD or severe anxiety, or disfigurement. The state caps non-economic damages in cases of medical malpractice at $350,000.
How do I make a claim if I was visiting Las Vegas from out of state when I was injured?
If you’ve suffered a severe injury from an accident that happened while you were visiting Las Vegas, you’ll want to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Our firm’s attorneys understand the types of injuries that can happen in casinos, hotels, shows and elsewhere in Las Vegas, and we also understand how the risk management departments of these organizations operate. Hiring an attorney early in the process means you can recover at home and our lawyer will take care of filing the case, locating witnesses, talking to medical providers in Las Vegas and in your hometown, and other tasks. The lawsuit will be heard in Nevada if it goes to trial; our legal staff knows the courts here and will guide you each step of the way until we’ve helped you recover the funds you need to restore your life to the way it was before the accident.
