Gazda and Tadayon represented my father in a Personal Injury case. My father used their firm based on recommendations that they were both experienced trial attorneys with a reputation for achieving excellent results for their clients. Mr. Tadayon is a skillful negotiator with a great work ethic and respect for other’s integrity. Mr. Gazda’s combined experience and passion for litigating make this law firm the place where I discovered that other attorneys and doctors in town refer their cases. Highly recommended.

I had occasion to serve as a court appointed arbitrator of a few cases in which Lewis Gazda represented an injury victim in a claim for compensation. Mr. Gazda always represented his client very well by being totally in command of all of the facts of the case and presenting his client's claim in the best possible light.
00:38 05 Mar 20
I worked for Gazda & Tadayon for about four years. During that time, everyone I talked to who interacted with them as an employee, client, vendor or otherwise, had only the best things to say about them, and the firm. Afshin Tadayon and Lewis Gazda are first class attorneys who get results. I witnessed their ability of turning adversaries into lifelong referral sources. They have compassion for their clients and they care about their employees no matter what age or background they have. They are passionate and courteous. They always conducted themselves with professionalism and treated all parties with dignity and respect. Gazda and Tadayon was home to me.Mr. Gazda and Mr. Tadayon are committed to doing whatever is necessary to help their clients get the best outcome. They are not afraid to put in the hours and "walk the walk." I highly recommend Gazda And Tadayon.

After a few lawyers drop my case. My case was referred to gazda and tayadon. My case was really difficult because I had gotten into different car accidents within a day part of each. After a difficult 5 years fighting my case I can finally say it's almost finialzed. Not only did they take my cases but also won it. From the start I knew there was a possibility I wouldn't recieve a dime not only was my medical and lawyers fees covered but come to find out I'll be getting a settlement check as well. Not only are they great laywers but great negotiators. I would highly recommend them to anyone.Thank you to Gazda and Tadayon and team for all they're hard work they put into winning my cases.
21:47 22 Aug 19
I would highly recommend Lewis and Afshin.They got my bills paid and a lot more money in my pocket than I expected. They represented me for my car...
Great Lawyers very personable. Lewis is very funny and Afshin is a great person,. I can only say if you want a personal experience and not feel pressured I think these guys would be your best choice. Just dont bet Afshin on a Muhammid Ali question while driving he will win the bet ; )

I would recommend them to anyone in Las Vegas! I was in a car accident about 2 years ago and was left with burns on my arms. Thanks to Afshin Tadayon I am receiving a nice settlement that is more than i thought id ever get. I was by far the worst client, I never answered my phone and was hard to get a hold of. Afshin went above and beyond to handle my case and I am beyond grateful for that.
22:09 25 Apr 16
I had a slip and fall accident while walking my dog. I broke my ankle and thought I had a legitimate lawsuit. I was paying for a pre-paid legal service, but they weren't interested. I then contacted several of the attorneys that advertise on local TV. I was amazed that they didn't want to discuss my case in person. They disqualified me over the phone. I was eventually referred to Afshin Tadayon. I met him at his office and he agreed that I had a case. I was impressed with Mr. Tadayon from the getgo. He was professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable and confident with the outcome. I would have to say that the process went smoothly and quickly. The settlement was more than I thought it would be. I can't think of any way that it could have been any better. I couldn't believe that I was turned away by so many other attorneys. I highly recommend Mr. Tadayon.
05:12 17 Feb 15
Gotta say these two guys were great I had used them during a difficult interstate law suit and the driver at fault was all about counter action. Gazda and Tadayon really put my recovery first, all the doctors and treatment never came out of my pocket great settlement.
16:24 22 Apr 14
My experiences with Gazda & Tadayon are truly amazing. These attorneys are highly skilled and very professional when it comes to handling cases. Lewis and Afshin are always prepared to take on any sort of case that comes their way.When I was involved in a car accident, I was slightly injured but my car was wrecked! I was more concerned about how I can manage fixing my car first. Then I was told to visit the offices of Gazda & Tadayon to get a FREE consultation. Money is tight for me so I can't be spending much when my car is totalled! After we spoke, it wasn't much later til my case had begun. Then in no time, my case had been settled and the amount of compensation that these personal injury attorneys had got for me was outstanding. My car was fixed! Most of all my medical bill was taken care of!I can't thank these two hard working men enough!Definitely give Gazda & Tadayon two thumbs up!!

Gazda & Tadayon have been very helpful. After my car accident took place I was referred to them from one my clients. I went to them and expained my situation and they took the reins. They are hands down the best personal injury lawyers in Las Vegas. Thank you so much!

What Should You Do After Being Involved in a Bicycle Accident
If you have been involved in a bicycle accident in Las Vegas, then our attorneys can help.
As a cyclist in Southern Nevada, you have a right to the road, just as much as any other motorist. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t think to look for cyclists on the road. Bike riders can be seriously injured or even killed by a negligent driver. Even if the cyclist is wearing a helmet and safety equipment, these accidents often lead to severe injury, expensive medical costs, and emotional trauma. If you or a loved one have sustained a bicycle accident injury here in Las Vegas, you have a right to pursue legal action and rightful compensation. Let us help. We are Gazda and Tadayon, Las Vegas’s best personal injury attorneys, and we have dealt with hundreds of cases involving traffic accidents, including bicycle accidents like yours.
We find that bicycle accidents are particularly common in Nevada, where bike lanes can be sparse and drivers fail to share the road. Hundreds of these accidents occur each year in our state, so you’re not alone in wondering if you should file a claim. Know that you deserve justice and compensation after the accident.
Not all insurance policies cover bike crashes, but in the event that the motorists’ insurers come in to play, there are two types of claims:
first-party, relying on your own insurance company for coverage
third party, relying on the other person’s insurance company for coverage
It can be tempting to rely on the at-fault party’s insurance to cover everything, especially in the whirlwind that occurs right after the accident. Medical bills are racking up, everyone is rattled, and people want to go back to the way things were before. Unfortunately, insurance usually fails to provide adequate compensation. While Nevada state law makes it mandatory for all drivers to have insurance, about 10% of drivers in Nevada don’t have coverage at all. There is an even greater number of drivers who have the bare minimum amount of insurance, which often does not cover traffic accidents involving bicycles.
At the end of the day, an insurance company is looking to maximize their profits. First, they can try to dodge the claim altogether. If that fails, they can attempt to award the lowest possible amount to the injured party, which they can accomplish by low-balling the medical costs, property damage, and overall liability of their insured party. Long-term medical costs are at the greatest risk: for example, if the cyclist who was injured sustained a spinal cord injury, insurance may only cover immediate surgeries and hospital visits, while failing to cover the costs of long-term care and rehabilitation as well as lost time and income from work.
This is where working with an experienced injury law firm like ours can help. At Gazda & Tadayon, we are former insurance defense lawyers who know the tactics that these companies use to reduce a claim. Instead, our goal is to maximize your compensation, and ensure that your rights and interests are protected. Instead of having to wrangle with insurance agent calls and the extensive paperwork and uncertainty while filing a claim on your own, let us do all the work for you. Because Nevada state law has a statute of limitations, you have a certain timeframe within which you can file a claim and secure compensation. Please contact us as soon as possible.
The best proof that you can have in a car versus bike accident is a police report. Make sure that you get a copy of the responding officer’s report. Whether or not you feel like you are injured, you need to contact the authorities.
Yes. On the off chance that you had an accident because of lopsided asphalt, potholes, or other street dangers, you might have the option to recuperate harms for your wounds. Cases like these include premises liability l
There are a whole range of other injuries that can also occur in these cycling accidents, depending on road conditions and the nature of the accident. Many victims don’t experience injuries or symptoms as soon as the accident occurs. It may take a day or two for the symptoms of the injury to appear, and some may manifest as mobility issues or chronic pain in the long term. Legs and feet are a particular source of injuries for cyclists, and long-term rehabilitation is often needed.
Victims should always seek immediate medical assistance after the accident, even if the injuries seem minor at first. Medical professionals can help take a complete inventory of all injuries, which helps for long-term treatment and also serves as proof should the victim take legal action later on. It also helps to document injuries using photos, and to keep any evidence intact. For example, the cyclist should not repair their bike as it contains valuable information for a personal injury lawyer to build a case on.
If injury from the bike collision can be demonstrated and the other motorist is found at fault, the injured cyclist can be entitled to substantial compensation. The damages they can claim for include:
cost of medical treatments
cost of long-term rehabilitation services
There are economic as well as non-economic damages involved in a bike accident. Economic damages are more obvious such as medical bills and wages lost due to the injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
Non-economic damages are somewhat complicated. What if the victim has lost some of their independence in performing certain household tasks due to the injuries sustained as a result of the crash? Although such damages are harder to quantify, they are as real as economic damages, and victims can be compensated for these damages by the at-fault party.
At this point, the common question is where the compensation will come from. In bicycle accidents, as in other types of traffic accidents, one of the most important factors is the motorists’ insurance. Whether it’s the victim’s auto insurance, provided they purchased enough coverage, or the insurance of the at-fault driver, there can soon be a barrage of calls trying to settle with a payout. There are a few reasons why injured bicyclists should avoid insurance claims, however.
Because of the complex nature of car accident injury law in Nevada, it’s critical that you explore your legal options and potentially file for damages as soon as possible. Our state law limits the amount of time after an accident that a victim can file for damages and claim compensation. Contact us today to assess your individual case in a timely manner.
