What Steps Should I Take After An Injury?

The steps you take directly after an injury are important to the overall success of your personal injury claim. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities as soon as it happens. This might be the police, your employer, or a supervisor. Request medical care if you notice you have injuries or visit the hospital if you aren’t sure if you’re injured. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, can have delayed symptoms. Prompt medical attention is important to your overall health and wellbeing.

Remain at the scene of the accident to collect information if you can or have a trusted friend do so for you. Gather information such as the names of all parties involved and of any eyewitnesses. Get the other driver’s insurance information as well if you were in an auto accident. Take photographs of the scene, of any property damage, and of your injuries. Get copies of any police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies. The more information about your case you can take down, the stronger your claim will be.

We recognize the importance of a team effort

We recognize the importance of a team effort at our firm. We assign at least six people to work on every case – three lawyers and three other team members. We have attorneys who specialize in specific aspects of personal injury cases. The ideal team member will take over the case when it reaches his or her specialty. This optimizes our legal services and gives each client the attention of a full legal team, not just one attorney or a paralegal.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

It is impossible to estimate the value of a case without consulting with an attorney about the specifics of your accident. Each case is unique and will have a different worth according to the types and extent of damage the victim suffered. However, the types of damages you may be eligible for remain the same throughout the state of Nevada.

You may be able to recover losses for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, lost quality of life, and loss of consortium. Family members can also receive payment for funeral and burial costs if a loved one passes away. The Las Vegas courts will generally give greater compensation awards for more serious injuries. You will likely be eligible for greater recovery if you suffered catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, or amputations.

What Is a Statute of Limitations in Las Vegas?

All states have a “statute of limitations,” or deadlines, for filing personal injury claims. Statutes of limitations exist to prevent plaintiffs from waiting an unfair amount of time before bringing a claim. The law pressures plaintiffs to bring the claim in a certain amount of time to ensure a fair legal process, with timely evidence and accurate eyewitness accounts. Statutes of limitations vary from state to state and according to the type of legal claim. The statutes of limitations are as follows in Las Vegas, Nevada:

Personal injury: Two years

Property damage: Three years

Product liability:  Four years

Medical malpractice: Three years or shorter

-Wrongful death: Two years

Their results speak louder than my words

I associated Sean Claggett and his firm on a catastrophic injury case that arose in Las Vegas. My experience and my client’s experience with them has been outstanding. I have super high standards and Sean and his team continually perform at the highest level. Hire them if you want the best.

Brian Davis, Esq.

He’s one of the most dedicated trial lawyers I know.

Sean hates seeing or hearing about an injustice.  Within moments of talking with Sean, you see his passion to want to “make things right” take over.  Then, he gets to work, figuring out how to hold wrongdoers accountable. He’s one of the most dedicated trial lawyers I know.

Steve Bronson, Esq.
