Car Accident Attorneys in Las Vegas, NV

Car Injury Lawsuits

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.

With 50 years of combined experience, Gazda & Tadayon is the Accident & Personal Injury Law Firm that other major law firms in Las Vegas go to for advice. We specialize in a wide range of personal injury cases, including car accidents and other vehicular collisions like truck, bus, and motorcycle accidents, and as former insurance lawyers, we have the insider knowledge and negotiation skills to help you fight for your rightful claim.

When you begin looking at your options after a car accident injury, one of the most important considerations is insurance – or the lack thereof, in many cases.

Uninsured or Underinsured? Nevada’s Insurance Problem

car accidents attorneys in las vegas

Some car accidents, especially minor ones, can be settled through insurance claims. 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

In theory, insurance companies should be able to cover all the costs of medical treatment, surgery, rehabilitation, and property damages incurred by a traffic accident. However, the tricky part is when it comes to deciding which company should front the costs: your insurance, or the third party’s insurance? If you have a claim to file on your own insurance, you might be wondering about the extent of your coverage. You might also be wondering the same about the other person’s coverage, in the event of a third party claim.

Unfortunately, this is where insurance can often fail to deliver, particularly for serious car accidents and collisions. In Nevada, car insurance is mandatory for all drivers, but many at-fault parties are still uninsured or underinsured. Around 10% of Nevada drivers don’t have coverage, and an even greater percentage of drivers have minimal coverage, having purchased just the bare minimum required by law. In the event of a catastrophic car crash or collision where vehicles get totaled and people get seriously injured, there is only so much that insurance can do.

Relying on insurance companies is essentially a roll of the dice, and at the end of the day, they prioritize numbers, not people. They actively try to minimize the amount of money awarded in insurance claims, and that could mean a less-than-accurate tally of the costs and losses of the victim and their loved ones. For example, in the event that the victim sustains a back injury, the insurer might settle for an amount for the initial costs of treatment, without considering the costs of long-term rehabilitation and chronic pain in the future.

Upon hiring a personal injury attorney like Gazda & Tadayon, you have someone on your side, protecting your best interests. Instead of dealing with calls from insurance agents and extensive paperwork for a claim, we can do all the groundwork on your behalf, making sure that you receive maximum compensation for all present and future costs associated with the accident. If you or a loved one have been involved in a traffic accident in Las Vegas and you’d like to explore your legal options, schedule a FREE car accident consultation with us today.

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.

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.

My husband was in a car accident back in 2011 and his case was transferred to Gazda & Tadayon from a different attorney. Long story short- everything was settled and paid in 2011 so when a $3400 bill showed up in January of 2019 we were shocked and upset to say the least. After first contacting the provider and attorney, I honestly thought we were getting screwed over and would be stuck with the bill because of the back and forth between them and the stories being told.... like our case was still ini litigation?? When I asked for a copy of our settlement disbursement it was somewhere in storages.. howevero to my surprise and relief, Gazda & Tadayon paid the bill in full!! While this service was included in the original lien and should have been paid out of the settlement in 2011, due to the mix up ( probably a result of changing attorneys) it wasn't. I have heard of several attorneys in similar situations that don't pay the bill but that wasn't the case here!!!! We are so thankful that this was resolved! I would definitely recommend this attorney purely because they area honest and did the right thing for us, so they'll do what's right for you too!Hopefully we won't need to hire an attorney again, but if we do, I'd definitely go with them!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Common Causes of Auto Accident Injury and Collisions

car accident attorny nevada

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:

  • Speeding
  • 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.

Common Car Accident Injuries

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:

  • whiplash
  • 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.

At Gazda & Tadayon, we use all possible resources at our disposal to get results, including our insider knowledge of insurance companies. We have formerly served as defense counsel for these insurers so we know how the “other side” thinks. This is a huge asset when handling a car accident case – we know exactly what questions to ask, and the right steps to take in order to get the compensation you deserve.

After a car crash, every single detail can make or break a case. To cover all our bases, we make it a point to conduct a thorough investigation of the accident site, questioning witnesses and evaluating every detail that may contribute to your case. When you choose us to handle your auto accident case, you choose lawyers that care about your personal and legal success.

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.
