Las Vegas Car Accidents
With so many cars on the road at once ranging from the Las Vegas Strip to Interstate 15, it’s critical for all drivers to obey the rules of the road at all times. When drivers take their attention away from the road for a split-second or fail to observe traffic laws, an accident can happen in a heartbeat. Often, these accidents can take unsuspecting motorists by surprise and result in serious, potentially fatal injuries. Auto crashes are extremely common in Las Vegas, where the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported 43.3 percent of all 51,664 crashes in the state in 2010, according to the state Department of Transportation. In total, there were 22,358 traffic crashes reported by the police. Of that number in 2010, 9,849 involved injuries and 75 were fatal.
At our personal injury law firm, our experienced legal team understands that car accidents have a wide variety of causes. On busy Las Vegas roads and highways, some causes of accidents are more common than others. Perhaps the driver who rear-ended you on South Main Street was distracted by a text message or speeding through a red light. A driver involved in a high-speed collision on Interstate 15 or US 95 may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Car accident injuries can be severe, taking months or years to fully recover from. Yet the person who caused your accident may deny wrongdoing. Their insurance company may even try to deny your claim to pay you as little as possible. When you’re facing skyrocketing medical bills, lost wages due to an inability to return to work and other damages related to the accident, that’s not fair.
That’s why we are here. At our personal injury law firm, we fight aggressively to protect the rights of car accident victims injured in Las Vegas car wrecks. We collect evidence. We interview witnesses. We pore over police and medical records. We have access to medical experts and reconstruction teams. Our legal professionals will do whatever it takes to fight for your rights. We strive to recover maximum compensation for clients after car accidents.
Las Vegas Truck Accidents
Trucks are a familiar sight on Las Vegas roads and highways. But while most drivers may not think twice about sharing the road with 18-wheelers and other large commercial vehicles, drivers of passenger vehicles are often involved in serious accidents involving trucks. Whether your accident occurred on the Las Vegas Freeway, a busy Downtown city street or near the Canyon Gate Country Club on West Charleston Boulevard, your accident may demand tough legal representation from an experienced attorney.
What causes truck wrecks in Las Vegas?
A tractor-trailer accident can have a variety of different causes. Truck drivers and trucking companies each have legal responsibilities to keep themselves and others safe while on the road. Driver error – such as when a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted or fatigued – is common in serious truck accidents. In other cases, a trucking company may willfully ignore maintenance issues, falsify hours-of-service records or even destroy log books after a crash.
Our personal injury law firm understands how serious truck accidents can be for accident victims. You and your loved ones may face medical bills, lost wages and other accident-related expenses that seem insurmountable. Take a stand against negligent truck drivers, trucking companies and insurance representatives that too often work tirelessly to keep the compensation you deserve out of your pockets.
Las Vegas Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles are a popular method of transportation in Las Vegas, where thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts take to the streets year-round and share the road with larger vehicles. But while most motorcyclists generally are law-abiding citizens who obey traffic laws and keep their distance from other vehicles, accidents can happen in a flash due to negligent drivers of cars and trucks. At our personal injury law firm, we understand that the physical, emotional and financial impact of a motorcycle crash can be devastating for injured motorcyclists and their families. Accidents in Las Vegas involving motorcycles occur at an alarming pace. In 2010, there were 30 fatal accidents in Clark County, more than any other county in the state. Statewide, there were 1,042 motorcycle accidents, and more than 80 percent of them involved injuries.
How do motorcycle accidents happen in Las Vegas?
An accident can occur for any number of reasons. Sometimes drivers don’t see a smaller motorcycle that is using another lane on a highway. The motorcycle rider might get sideswiped as the driver is switching lanes.
In many cases, drivers are dealing with distractions or making other reckless choices. They may be using a cell phone, speeding, or may choose to fail to yield the right-of-way at an intersection. Alcohol-related accidents are also not uncommon, as drivers who are drunk lack proper judgment. This can be especially dangerous around motorcycles.
If you’ve been injured or a loved one was injured or died in a motorcycle accident, take action immediately. Our attorneys are experienced litigators who leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of compensation. We collect evidence, examine police and medical records and interview witnesses. We have access to medical experts and crash reconstruction teams. Simply put, we know what it takes to help clients recover compensation after an accident.
