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!!

Things To Know About Personal Injury in Southern Nevada

In Southern Nevada, we see a higher than average amount of personal injury incidents, due in part to our status as a tourist city. The majority of the injuries in Las Vegas are from motor vehicle accidents including auto collisions, rollover accidents, pedestrian hit and run, and motorbike accidents. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by a reckless driver or someone driving under the influence.

After auto accidents, some of the other common injuries in Las Vegas include injuries sustained on the job, injuries from faulty equipment, and bodily injuries due to inadequate maintenance of buildings and public spaces. Poor working conditions contribute a lot to these accidents, as does general negligent behavior.

It’s the unfortunate reality of living in a big city like ours, but luckily if there are also great resources for recovery and rehabilitation once you’ve secured the compensation you deserve.

What Type of Personal Injury Claim Do I Have in Nevada?

There are many types of personal injury claims that victims can file, and knowing which type of claim you have can help you gain confidence as you move forward in the legal process.

Bodily Injury

Wrongful death claims – When someone dies from injuries caused by another person or entity. This includes deaths as a result of traffic accidents, work-related incidents, at school, in a public space. The liable party can be held responsible for bills from medical treatment, funeral services, and emotional damages to the family. In Las Vegas, this is most often filed on behalf of the victim by a spouse or their minor children. Occasionally family members can also be eligible to file a claim.

Head and brain injury claims – Also known as traumatic brain injury (TBI) claims. Any injury to the head or brain can be severe and often involves intensive medical care and rehabilitation. Symptoms may not be immediately obvious, and can develop over time after the accident. Victims often develop cognitive trouble, loss of coordination, chronic pain and can be disabled, resulting in an inability to work.

Dog bite injury claims -Dog bites are the most common injury from animal attacks in the United States. The owner of a dangerous dog can be held liable for the attack, especially since dog bites can result in infection (such as rabies and tetanus). Infected dog bites are especially threatening to children, the elderly, and patients with pre-existing medical conditions. Dog attacks can also cause severe lacerations, bone breaks and fractures, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other bodily injuries that can require medical care and rehabilitation.

Spinal injury claims – The spine is one of the most important parts of the human body, and a spine injury can lead to paralysis (either paraplegia or quadriplegia), mobility issues, trouble breathing, sexual dysfunction, and a host of other complications. Symptoms may not be immediately obvious, and can develop over time. Many spinal cord victims are unable to return to work after the accident.

Neglect & abuse claims – Also known as elder abuse or nursing home abuse, a neglect and abuse case is one of the most heinous acts. In these cases, the victim suffers physical, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse at the hands of their caregivers in a home care, facility, or nursing home environment. Sometimes, victims cannot speak up about the abuse or their injuries because they are intimidated by staff or otherwise unable to communicate. It is critical to investigate elderly neglect and abuse claims and hold the liable parties responsible.

Traffic Accidents

Car accident injury claims – After a collision on the road, injured drivers or passengers can claim damages for costs of hospital visits, medical bills, rehabilitation, and medication, as well as for emotional damages (like PTSD) as a result of the car crash. Some common injuries that can be covered by auto accident claims include whiplash, brain and head injuries, spinal injury, and paralysis. Even if the injured driver or passenger is partially at fault, they can still file a claim as long as the other driver is held more than 50% responsible. Insurance often cannot cover all the costs of the accident, making it critical to pursue legal action after the traffic accident.

Truck accident claims – No one wants to be injured in a truck accident. Trucks can be 20 to 30 times more heavy than most vehicles, and truck collisions often result in severe and sometimes fatal injuries. In truck accident claims it is usually the trucking company that is held responsible. It is crucial not to communicate or accept direct settlements from the trucking company’s insurance, as they will often attempt to minimize the truck accident injury claim.

Motorcycle accident claims – Car drivers are often at fault for these accidents, as they fail to check their blind spots or make wide turns, injuring the motorcyclist. Motorbike accidents often lead to severe and sometimes fatal injuries, with a significant percentage of paralysis, disability, spine injury, and traumatic brain injury reported in these crashes. Insurance rarely covers all the costs of the motorcycle collision, making it necessary to pursue legal action and demand compensation after the bike accident.

Public transportation injury claims – After a traffic accident involving an airport shuttle, hotel shuttle, limousine, taxi, or other form of public transportation in Las Vegas, the operating company can be held liable for any injuries caused to passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, or other motorists. Many of these companies will attempt to minimize the claim and settle out of court with a small payout, but it is crucial to avoid these offers and instead pursue full and complete compensation for the public transit injuries.

Bus accident injury claimsPoor maintenance or reckless driving can cause a serious bus crash or collision, injuring the bus rider, pedestrians, or other motorists. This can happen on an RTC transit bus, school bus, or any other private or public bus in Las Vegas. It is the operating company that is usually held responsible for these bus collisions, but note that they will often try to avoid the claim and/or settle with a small payout which often neglect to cover all the damages owed to the victims. Legal action is often pursued instead.

Roll over accident claims – If a driver or passenger is injured in a roll over accident in their car, they can pursue legal action against the car manufacturer for defective products or other manufacturing defects and safety issues in the vehicle, or against a negligent or reckless driver at fault who caused the accident. Rollover accident injuries are some of the most serious traffic accidents in Southern Nevada. While they make up a small percentage of the vehicular accidents in Las Vegas, they are the most likely to cause severe injury, disability, or even death. The high medical costs and intense emotional damages from these rollover incidents can be covered by compensation won in an injury claim.

Pedestrian accident injury claims – Negligent and reckless drivers, including drunk drivers (DUI) and those texting while driving, can hit a pedestrian at a crosswalk or on the road and cause severe injury. It is almost always the fault of the driver in these situations, but even if the pedestrian is partially liable for the accident, they can still be eligible to file a claim. If the at fault driver has not been identified, the case is classified as a hit and run, but the driver can still be found and held liable with efforts from law enforcement and an experienced injury law firm who can help collect evidence and interview witnesses.

Bicycle accident claims – Bike accidents are unfortunately quite common in Nevada, since many drivers and even pedestrians neglect to share the road with cyclists. These bicycle crashes can be complicated by poorly marked roadways or bike lanes. Even when wearing a helmet and appropriate safety gear, riders injured in a bicycle collision often suffer severe injuries that require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. In cases there the bicycle rider is partially responsible for the accident, they can still file a claim and receive damages as long as the other party is more liable for the accident.

Personal Injury Claim Check List

Important Information About Your Personal Injury Claim

After any accident the full extent of the injuries may not be obvious at first, and it can take time for any complications and symptoms to develop. Seek medical assistance after any accident so that medical professionals can take a full inventory of all injuries. This medical documentation also helps us file for full and complete compensation to cover all medical bills, costs of care, and rehabilitation in your case.

Whether it’s physical evidence from a car crash or photos, videos, and audio recordings from the site of the accident, collect as much evidence as possible. Take photos from different angles, take down contact information from potential witnesses, and retain these to share with a lawyer once you pursue legal action. These are critical pieces of evidence that can strengthen your case and maximize your claim.

For injury claims in Nevada there is a statute of limitations, which means that there is a limited time frame during which the victim can file for damages and claim compensation from the liable party. In most cases, that time period is two (2) years from the date of the accident. It is critical to file as soon as possible for all personal injury cases in Las Vegas. In some extremely rare cases, a claim can be submitted and collected after the limited statute period.

After the accident, especially in traffic accidents or car crashes, it’s common to exchange insurance information with anyone else involved. The insurance companies will then proceed to call any injured victims to gather information and potentially settle any damages out of court. Do not settle with the insurance company. Do not provide any evidence or information from the accident. Their business model runs on awarding less money than they bring in from their policyholders, which means they will attempt to minimize financial compensation. Anything that you disclose to the insurance company can be put on the record and used against you in court, which can jeopardize your ability to collect full compensation.
