Filing Lawsuits For Car Accidents
Living in a heavy traffic city like Las Vegas, there’s a much higher rate of car accidents. It follows that automobile accidents are the most common cause of serious injury in Southern Nevada. A large part of those incidents are caused by others driving under the influence, texting behind the wheel, or just being a reckless driver as a whole. Whatever the cause, it takes time and money to cover all the serious injuries, disabilities, loss of wages, and sometimes deaths that may have occurred due to the accident. If you or a loved one has involved in a collision or road accident, it can be tempting to rely on the insurance companies for coverage, but it is critical to speak with a car accident injury attorney to protect your interests and get the full compensation you deserve.

Car Accidents FAQs
It relies upon the state wherein the accident happened. In certain states, not locking in can nullify or diminish any potential compensation for accidents, on the premise that individuals endure increasingly serious wounds when not wearing safety belts. In different states, this isn’t the case. Your lawyer can mention to you what the law is in your state, and will contend for your entitlement to recuperate harms.
Accepting blame and apologizing to another driver may be used as evidence against you at trial. Leave it to a judge or jury to decide who is at fault. You’re probably not in the best position to assess how or why the accident happened. Defective equipment in your vehicle, a malfunctioning traffic signal, or another driver’s intoxication are among many possible causes of an accident, which your attorney can investigate and evaluate.
It’s very common for people to say things at the time of an incident that they later realize were inaccurate. Sometimes, a witness may misstate what you said about how the incident took place. You might have a hard time explaining how it is that you now remember things differently than you did at the time of the incident, but if you consult with Gazda & Tadayon we will handle such a situation, and can help find support for your side of the story.
It’s not recommended that you settle claims from an accident until a doctor has seen you and advised you about the extent of your injuries. Both you and your passengers should consider seeing a doctor after an accident. The doctor may recognize injuries, sometimes serious, that are not apparent to you. The charges for a doctor visit and medical treatment may be covered by your insurance.
That depends, as there are several factors that dictate whether an air bag will deploy in a collision. You should consult with an attorney, who will investigate the airbag devices in your car and determine, with the assistance of an engineer, the circumstances under which the airbags were supposed to deploy. If it was proven that the airbags should’ve deployed, you may have a product liability case against the manufacturer.
It could happen on the way to work or on the routine trip to the grocery store. A car collision comes out of nowhere, and is often totally out of the control of the victims involved. Some of the most common causes of traffic accidents in Nevada include:
- Reckless driving
- Driving while texting
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence (DUI)
- Right of way fault
- Running a red light
For a auto accident injury claim to be successful, there must be proof that the negligent third-party was partially responsible for the incident. Even if the victim was also partially responsible for the incident, they can may be able to claim compensation as long as they can demonstrate that they are less at fault than the other party: that is, 49% or less at fault. This percentage of fault applies to the amount of compensation that can be collected.
Immediately following a car accident, the victim may or may not experience symptoms. Some injuries take days, weeks, or even months and years to reveal their full scope, so it is critical for the victim to seek medical attention regardless of the perceived severity of the accident. Sometimes, a collision can cause minor visible damage to the vehicles and still cause significant injury to the victims. Even if the vehicles may look unscathed, the sensitive tissues and structures inside the human body may still have been direly impacted.
Common auto accident injuries include:
- sprains and strains
- back injuries
- bone fractures of different types
- head and neck injuries
- soft tissue injuries
Many of these injuries involve sensitive and complex structures in the body, including the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system. It takes specialized medical care to treat even a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury after an accident, as well as any type of spine or spinal cord injury. Long term rehabilitation is often needed for any joint, bone, or muscle issues, which are together referred to as orthopedic care. Victims of traffic accidents often suffer more than one type of injury, since these delicate systems are closely connected, and the symptoms can last for years and require careful pain management and rehabilitation.
In the case of an insurance claim, the insurers will often attempt to cover just the present symptoms and their immediate treatment. However, the types of injuries sustained in car crashes can last a lifetime, and only a car accident personal injury lawyer can help ensure that both present and future medical costs are covered by your compensation.
In some cases, a serious traffic crash can result in a fatality. In Nevada, there are hundreds of drivers killed in auto accidents each year, especially in Las Vegas where we see a lot of motorists from out of state and people who choose to drive after a night out of drinking.
If injury from the auto collision can be demonstrated, the victim can be entitled to substantial compensation. They can claim for a number of damages including:
- property damage to the vehicles
- lost current and future income
- medical treatments
- long-term rehabilitation services, including physical therapy
- medication for chronic pain and suffering
- post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
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.
