Client Reviews

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.

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.

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!!

How to File a Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse Claim in Las Vegas, NV

Neglect Abuse Attorney

If you suspect that a loved one is being neglected or abused in an extended care home, contact us immediately at Gazda and Tadayon, Las Vegas’ most trusted attorneys for nursing home neglect and abuse injury. We deal with many personal injury cases in Nevada as one of the city’s most experienced law firms, but we take neglect and abuse cases very seriously. Let us help you fight for your family’s rights and due compensation.

When you trust your loved ones to the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility, they have a duty to provide them the best care and attention possible. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. One out of every four nursing homes has been cited for neglect or elder abuse, a shockingly high number, and many victims are unable to communicate with family back home about the incident. They can suffer for months or years under the abuse of a negligent or malicious caregiver, and this can lead to unneeded medical complications and emotional distress.

We Can Help You

  • Determine if there is neglect or abuse taking place
  • Gather concrete evidence of abuse or neglect
  • File the necessary paperwork
  • Consult with medical experts on the true costs of treatment and long-term care
  • See your case through either to trial or to a settlement
To get started, schedule a free consultation for your neglect & abuse claim or read what our clients have to say on our Gazda and Tadayon reviews page. You can also visit us in person at our welcoming and compassionate law firm, located at 2600 S Rainbow Boulevard, Suite 200, Las Vegas, NV 89146.

Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse FAQs

A victim of Nevada nursing home abuse is entitled to hire a private attorney in order to file a civil lawsuit for compensatory damages for the violation of any of the resident’s rights. Subsequently, nursing home abuse or neglect can result in an investigation and fining by an adult protective services agency, a civil cause for action or lawsuit to recover damages on behalf of the victim, and a criminal prosecution intended to punish malicious and intentional conduct.

Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect are all too common of an occurrence. If you believe that your loved one may be a victim, it is important to confront the situation right away. With the help of a Nevada nursing home attorney, you and your loved one may be able to pursue legal recourse. If you suspect that your loved one is being abused or neglected, contact an experienced Las Vegas nursing home negligence lawyer to begin exploring your legal options and to, more importantly, put an end to the abuse.

Yes, nursing home residents or their dependents (in the event of wrongful death) who have suffered an injury caused by misconduct or negligence in a Nevada nursing home can sue the facility, regardless of whether they have a contract with the home.

There is no set time-frame in which a Nevada nursing home injury claim will be settled. Depending on the case, it can take several weeks to several years for injury victims to receive fair justice and compensation for their lawsuit. Nursing home negligence cases are usually complex with extensive medical records, bills and the burden of proving that the facility or medical staff was negligent in their treatment of the resident.

It is important to contact an experienced attorney before discussing the situation with anyone, especially if they are affiliated with the facility where the injury occurred. The objective of a nursing home representative or risk manager is to save the facility money by settling injury claims quickly and out of the courtroom. Additionally, you have the right to consult with an attorney as well as to have a lawyer present when meeting with nursing home representatives.

Nevada nursing homes are regulated by both state and federal authorities. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulates nursing homes on a federal level. On the Nevada state level, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health via the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (BHCQC) and the Aging and Disability Services Division all work towards regulating nursing homes and overseeing health care quality.

It depends on whether the violations pose an immediate threat to the safety of residents. If a Nevada nursing home is found in violation of regulations but resident’s safety is not directly or immediately affected, the facility is given the opportunity to create a Plan of Correction to enforce necessary changes. If resident safety is threatened, a facility can be fined by regulators, new supervisors can be appointed, new admissions and the nursing home’s license may be suspended in addition to other repercussions.

Watch for signs of nursing home abuse or neglect, including:

–      Bedsores

–      Emotional withdrawal

–      Silence around caretakers

–      Changes in behavior

–      Changes in the elderly patient’s will

–      Changes in the elder’s power of attorney

–      Sudden financial problems, such as unpaid bills

–      Unexplained bruises

–      Bleeding

–      Bruises or marks near the elder’s genitals

–      Sudden or unexplained infections, viruses, or diseases

–      Physical discomfort

neglect & abuse lawyerIt can be hard to tell at first if there’s something wrong at the nursing home. Many cases of neglect or elder abuse are not reported because patients might be unaware of the situation, or out of fear that their caregivers will retaliate. If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your loved one, don’t hesitate to ask questions and demand answers.

Here are a few signs that may suggest that a neglect and abuse situation is on-going:

  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Falls and fractures
  • Physical or chemical restraints
  • Signs of physical or sexual abuse

It’s better to be safe than sorry. You don’t want to take any chances when it comes to your loved one’s physical and emotional well-being. If you suspect they are being abused or neglected, call us today at 702-220-7128 for a free consultation and get the most experienced personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas on your side.

neglect & abuse lawyers nevadaAnybody who suspects nursing home neglect should act right away. There are certainly false alarms, but there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain when we prioritize the well-being of our families and loved ones. Patients can suffer from very serious mental and physical problems even after just a short time of neglect, and in extreme cases abuse can lead to serious injury or even death.

Neglect and abuse is illegal in Nevada, and as personal injury lawyers with more than 50 years of experience, we are well-equipped to help you take legal action. The mistreatment of your loved one may have already caused you and your family immense grief and anger, in addition to the extra costs of medical treatment and recovery. At Gazda and Tadayon, we use all available resources to help get you the compensation and peace of mind you deserve.

The amount of compensation varies from case to case, but some of the costs that can be covered include:

  • additional medical treatment or surgeries
  • transfer to another nursing home or facility
  • therapy
  • rehabilitation
  • loss of wages caused by time spent on the case
  • costs of travel

These cases can sometimes be settled out of court, but at times we need to litigate, or pursue a lawsuit against the liable party. Many lawyers are proficient at settlements but lack the knowledge and experience to pursue litigation, especially for a complex personal injury case like neglect and abuse. Luckily, you have us on your side. Our law firm is known for our confidence in personal injury litigation, and we work tirelessly until your case comes to a conclusion.

Should we choose to litigate, the case will go to court and be seen by a judge or jury. Settlements are often faster, but in some cases a trial can be the best way to pursue monetary compensation and justice for the victim. As always, we are a no fee law firm at Gazda and Tadayon, which means we cover all legal fees until we collect from a case.

One more important thing to note: Nevada is a limited statute state, which means there is a limited time frame for people to file a personal injury claim, like nursing home neglect and abuse. Even if the abuse occurred in the past, there could still be time to file for compensation. It is critical that you work with an attorney with extensive knowledge of these types of cases, and who can work on your case as soon as possible

Once a person has picked up on signs of nursing home abuse, they have a duty to report the incident. If the person is a doctor, social worker, or other form of government worker, the person is required by law to report nursing home abuse cases. There are also specific states that require all citizens, regardless of vocation, to report suspected nursing home abuse. It is important to include specific details of the elder abuse or neglect when reporting nursing home abuse.

To report nursing home abuse, a person can contact their local state authorities through the following methods:

–      Contact the Eldercare Locator, at 1-800-677-1116, during weekdays to find out any specific state information that may apply.

Effective July 1, 2019, Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) received legislative authority to receive and investigate reports of abuse, neglect, exploitation, isolation or abandonment for vulnerable adults age 18-59, in addition to persons 60 years and older, collectively referred to as vulnerable adults. The Elder Protective Services (EPS) program is now referred to as Adult Protective Services (APS). Adult Protective Services serves all of Nevada.

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.
