Do You Need to Hire a Reno Personal Injury Attorney?

Handling your injury claim without the help of a personal injury lawyer puts you at risk of being taken advantage of by an insurance company. Insurance companies and their claims adjusters have training and experience in devaluing injury claims. With a lawyer by your side, however, an insurer will have no choice but to offer a fair amount. Otherwise, your lawyer can take the insurer to trial on your behalf.

Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case is a type of civil suit that seeks financial compensation from one or more parties (known as defendants) for causing or contributing to a victim’s (plaintiff’s) injuries. To have grounds for a personal injury case in Nevada, you generally must be able to prove three elements as more likely to be true than not true:

  1. Duty of care owed. A duty of care means that the defendant had an obligation to treat you with care and in accordance with the law.
  2. Duty of care breached. A breach is an action or omission that falls outside of the bounds of reasonable care.
  3. The defendant's breach of duty must have resulted in your accident and injury, along with the compensable losses you sustained.

If you suffered a physical or emotional injury from the neglect, default or wrongful act of another person, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Filing a personal injury lawsuit allows you to seek justice. Our attorneys can review your case if you are not sure whether it has merit.

Compensation Available in Reno Personal Injury Cases

If you or your personal injury attorney is successful in proving the elements of an injury claim, an insurance company or jury may offer financial compensation to cover your past, current and future associated losses. Many different types of damages are available during a claim, both economic and noneconomic:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and earning capacity
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

The value of your lawsuit is something we can discuss in more detail after reviewing and understanding the full extent of your injuries and losses. Although no type of financial award can make up for what you suffered, a fair and full amount of compensation can enable you to pay your bills and move forward.
