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.

  1. 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 well being.
  2. 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.
  3. Take photographs of the scene, of any property damage, and of your injuries.
  4. 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. To learn more about car crash injury lawsuits, contact one of our experienced Las Vegas car accident lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.

How Is Negligence Determined in a Personal Injury Case?

Negligence plays a key role in most personal injury cases in Nevada. The burden of proof in a typical personal injury case requires the plaintiff to establish through a preponderance of the evidence (meaning more likely to be true than not true) that the defendant was negligent and that his or her negligence caused the injury in question. Determining negligence often takes an in-depth analysis of the facts of the case.

A Las Vegas injury lawyer from Claggett & Sykes Law Firm can help with claim investigation in Las Vegas. We can send investigators back to the scene of the accident, gather evidence such as police reports and medical documents, interview eyewitnesses, and hire experts to help prove your case. Our attorneys can also identify the defendant in your injury claim on your behalf. The defendant could be a driver, a doctor, a property owner, an employer, a product manufacturer, the government or a combination of parties.

How Much is My Injury Claim Worth?

The value of your personal injury case may depend on the extent of your injuries, whether you have a disability, how long you will be out of work, how much the accident impacted your life, the actions of the at-fault party and many other factors.

Types of Damages You Can Recover

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.
