We have extensive experience in dealing with insurance adjusters, going up against major corporations, evaluating claims, and ensuring that you receive a fair settlement. I would equate it with asking yourself whether you need a doctor when you have a broken leg.

Personal injury is the field of law that involves a plaintiff’s injuries and a defendant’s negligence, recklessness or carelessness. If one person (the defendant) causes another person’s (the plaintiff’s) injuries, the defendant may owe the plaintiff financial compensation. At Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, our Las Vegas injury lawyers help clients pursue and obtain fair compensation for their damages across many different claim types.
In our law firm’s history, we have helped clients with all types of personal injuries: broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burns, spinal cord injuries, traumatic amputations, lacerations and more. We tailor our legal efforts according to each client’s unique case type, injuries, needs and goals.
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 well being.
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.
Negligence plays a key role in most personal injury cases in Nevada. The burden of proof in a typical personal injury claim 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 personal 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.
Once we have determined who caused your personal injury in Las Vegas, we can fill out the proper claims paperwork to initiate a lawsuit in the Clark County civil courts. It is up to you to file a personal injury lawsuit; the police or the city will not do so for you. Our attorneys can assist you with the legwork it takes to bring a claim in Las Vegas, including handling confusing paperwork and making sure you meet the statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations is a state-mandated deadline to bring a civil claim. Statutes of limitations enact time limits by which claimants must bring their lawsuits – or else forfeit the right to demand compensation, in most cases. These deadlines vary from state to state, as well as between different case types. Nevada’s personal injury statute of limitations is two years of the date of the injury or injury discovery, with a few exceptions. Speak to our injury lawyers as soon as possible if you have a personal injury to ensure you do not miss your deadline.
The value of your personal injury claim 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. The types of damages you could potentially receive compensation for during a Las Vegas injury claim include medical expenses, lost income, property repairs, pain and suffering, and punitive damages. Talk to our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers about the potential value of your personal injury claim for more details.
Many injured accident victims in Las Vegas hesitate to hire attorneys for fear of the cost. At Claggett & Sykes Law Firm, we solve this problem by offering our legal services on a contingency fee basis. This attorney fee arrangement means your lawyer will always cost you $0 out of pocket – no matter what, win or lose. We will bill you nothing upfront. Our personal injury law firm will front all the costs of your claim during negotiation or litigation.
If our lawyers win your case, we will not bill you directly for our representation. Instead, we will automatically deduct our fees as a percentage of the settlement or verdict we won on your behalf.
The percentage we charge is something we will arrange with you beforehand. We never leave you in the dark about how much our services will cost. Should we fail to secure financial compensation for you, you will owe us nothing for the services already rendered.
