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!!

What To Do After Being Involved in a Big Rig/Semi-Truck Accident

Semi-Truck-AccidentsBig rig/semi-truck accidents are some of the scariest and intimidating. Truck drivers are supposed to be trained and licensed professionals, but in some cases, they can fail to attend to their duties on the road here in Las Vegas. If you or a loved one have been injured by a truck accident or a collision with another commercial vehicle, you deserve compensation. Don’t let the trucking industry’s powerful attorneys push you around.

Right after a serious truck collision, it can be tempting to call your insurance and immediately file a claim. There are immediate medical costs and property damage costs to cover, in addition to the trauma of such a serious accident. But insurance companies may not be your best allies, for a number of reasons.

At the end of the day, both the trucking company and the insurance companies will look out for their own interests. When you try to negotiate with them or contact them for a claim, they can minimize the amount of money awarded to you for the injury. They can also try to lower the amount estimated for medical costs and property damage costs to the victim and their loved ones. For example, if the injured driver suffers serious whiplash after the accident, the companies may agree to cover the immediate hospital visit and initial costs of treatment, but they won’t cover all the costs of long-term rehabilitation and pain management. There’s also the issue of any lost wages from the victim’s disability and resulting inability to work.

The attorneys of Gazda and Tadayon have been recognized by the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum for winning millions in compensation for our clients. Our ethical standards have also been highlighted by the law directory Martindale-Hubbard. When you work with Gazda and Tadayon on your semi-truck accident case, you will receive proven representation with full integrity.

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.

What Happens in a Truck Collision

No one wants to be injured in a car accident or truck accident, let alone one involving a huge 16 wheeler or 18 wheeler. Trucks are much bigger, heavier, and much more dangerous than any other vehicle on the road. They can weigh up to 20-30 times more than the everyday car, and sit much higher off the ground.

Because of their immense weight and size, they can cause horrible damage in the event of a crash, including severe bodily injury or even death, in addition to the extensive property damage. Most cars get totaled in a collision with a truck. Unfortunately, a disproportionate number of these accidents lead to fatalities. 

Some of the most common reasons for truck accidents include:

  • Drunk driving, or driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Loose or bad cargo loading
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Distracted driver
  • General disregard for traffic laws
  • Failure to yield right of way

The at-fault driver might also be fatigued. Truck drivers can sometimes drive more than 8-12 hours per shift or more, and although laws exist to prevent overtime to protect other drivers on the road these laws can go unheeded. They might have been texting while driving, or they may have fallen asleep for a few moments at the wheel after deciding to drive while fatigued.

Nevada has one of the highest rates of DUI in the nation, so a significant portion of these traffic accidents involves alcohol or intoxication.

After the auto accident, the truck driver’s condition is usually noted by law enforcement. This record can be used to determine the truck driver’s level of fault in the accident. In some cases, the injured victim is partially liable, but the injured victim can still file a claim as long as the truck driver has even greater fault in the accident. If you are injured in a truck accident, it is important to seek legal counsel before speaking to any insurance company, since anything you say is on the record and can be used against you when you attempt to file against them.

Truck Accidents FAQs

Yes, if you decide to file a lawsuit, your truck accident lawyer will review all potential damages. In addition,  Your recovery in a personal injury action can include payment for income lost through missed work, plus compensation for any loss of earning capacity resulting from the accident

It depends on whether an employment relationship is established between the truck driver and the trucking company. If such a relationship is shown, the company can be held legally liable for the driver’s negligence under a legal theory known as “respondeat superior.”

It relies upon the level of your fault. Under the legitimate principle known as “comparative negligence,” the measure of another gathering’s obligation for the mishap is controlled by contrasting their imprudence and your own. That gathering’s part of risk decides the level of the subsequent harms the person must compensation.

In  limited conditions, the shipper of such risky materials can be considered legitimately capable if injury came about because of the truck’s payload, particularly if the shipper neglected to prompt the driver or the trucking organization of the unsafe idea of material contained in the cargo.

A commercial truck, such as a “big rig,” is a vehicle used in the course of business and/or for the transport of commercial goods. Examples are eighteen-wheeler tractor trailers, tanker trucks, delivery vehicles, and other large freight trucks.

las-vegas-semi-truck-accident

Even in a safe car with proper maintenance, a victim in a semi-truck accident can often suffer severe injuries after an truck accident. Most injured victims will have been transported to a hospital, where a full inventory of their injuries will be taken, but certain injuries may not be so immediately obvious. It can sometimes take days or months to see the full extent of the damage.

Some of the most common injuries sustained in truck accidents are:

Victims often have general mobility issues after such a serious accident, and some may be disabled for life. Such a traumatic episode can also prevent the victim from being able to drive due to a developed phobia after the accident.

If injury from the truck accident is demonstrated and documented and the truck driver is found at fault, the victim can be entitled to substantial compensation. They can claim for a number of damages including:

  • medical treatments
  • surgery
  • long-term rehabilitation services, including physical therapy
  • medication for chronic pain
  • lost current and future income (lost wages)
  • property damage to the vehicle

Truck accident attorneys

We leave no stone un-turned to help you get back the quality of life and peace of mind you deserve.

Every single detail can make or break a traffic accident case. After we take on your case, we conduct our own independent examination of the accident. We will work hard to seek any evidence that suggests violations, including:

  • Reviewing the truck’s black box
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Investigating the scene
  • Making sure you have adequate medical treatment
  • Consulting with specialists regarding your case
  • Seeking compensation for your injuries

We know the hardships that come with being involved in an accident, that’s why we fight for the maximum amount. If you have suffered permanent or severe injuries your case can result in millions of dollars in compensation.

In most cases, the insurance company does pay out; however, they will try their best to not pay out as much as you need and deserve. Their aim is to withhold money. That way, they hold onto their profit. In a situation were the truck driver’s insurance company is hassling you, it’s time to call a lawyer to have it sorted out. Only a board certified lawyer can help you get the settlement you deserve. 

We also understand that your legal fight is just one part of your journey to recovery. Our friendly staff is there to make the legal process as smooth and comfortable as possible. At Gazda and Tadayon, we truly care about your personal and legal success.

Because the truck driver is usually backed by their employer’s legal team, it is critical that you choose an attorney with the confidence and experience to take on even the most complex personal injury cases in Las Vegas.

It’s also important to note that Nevada state law limits the amount of time after an accident that you can file for damages and compensation, so be sure to act quickly to get started. Contact us today to assess your individual case in a timely manner.
