Las Vegas Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys

Spinal cord injury is one the most challenging injuries a family can face. Usually caused in a catastrophic car wreck, drunk driving accident or truck accident, spinal cord injuries can happen in the blink of an eye, changing your life or that of a family member forever.

If you have sustained a traumatic spinal cord injury, including injuries to the neck or back, or paralysis, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses due to the actions of a negligent driver. Enormous hospital and doctor bills are piling up, followed by countless hours of rehabilitation and therapy, and lost work time. Victims of catastrophic spinal cord injury often need additional supports in the future, including a handicapped-accessible vehicle, job training for a new profession and adaptive equipment for the home and workplace.

All of this costs money, and at the Law Offices, we believe that the negligent driver (and their insurance company) should be held accountable for his or her actions.

Get a Seasoned Advocate in your Corner

We have been helping clients win compensation for serious injury for more than 10 years. We focus exclusively on personal injury, and have

extensive experience in negotiating with insurance companies. If we need to be tough, we will. The last thing you need during this stressful time is to remain on “hold” until you get to talk to an insurance adjuster.

Our attorneys have a long track record of success in getting insurance companies to honor the policies they write. We can help you get the money damages you need if you have been injured by an uninsured or under insured motorist.

We Refuse to Cut Corners

We take pride in investigating your claim thoroughly, and holding the careless driver accountable. Since establishing our practice in 1998, we have discovered time and again how important it is to remain patient in negotiations. The insurance companies do not as a rule, look out for the best interests of their policyholders; they often protect their bottom line by settling quickly and for far less than you will need.

We prepare every case for trial. If negotiations break down, or the offered settlement is less than you need, we are ready to go to court to protect your interests and YOUR bottom line. Because we work on contingency, you owe us no attorney fees unless we win compensation for you.

Las Vegas Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dangerous dog or exotic animal, you have the right to pursue legal action for your injuries. Many pet owners fail to take responsibility for their pets, letting them go off the leash when pets should be controlled, or keeping exotic pets which are not suitable for the home. Dog bite injuries by themselves can be quite serious, leading to scarring, disfigurement and the trauma of being bitten by an aggressive mammal with 42 sharp teeth!

The attorneys at theĀ  law firm have been representing clients injured by the carelessness of others since 1998. In that time we have gained the

respect of clients we serve in the Las Vegas area and throughout Nevada, because the Law Offices put their interests first.

For a confidential consultation with a skilled dog bite injury attorney, contact our Las Vegas or Pahrump, Nevada law office.

Pursuing Compensation for your Losses

Small children are most likely to sustain serious dog bite injuries, which often include the following:

  • Scarring and disfigurement on the face or neck requiring plastic surgery
  • Serious injuries to the hands, arms or legs
  • Psychological trauma requiring long-term therapy
  • Painful rabies shots if the dog cannot be located for testing
  • We understand that serious injuries warrant serious compensation. Our attorneys pursue money damages through the pet owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy. We have deep experience in working with insurance companies due to our focus on personal injury law, and look at present and future needs.

Will reconstructive surgery be needed to restore mobility? Have you lost work time due to being bitten by a dangerous dog or exotic pet? Is your child awakened by nightmares after the attack? We will not rest until you and your family member are awarded maximum compensation.

Investigating your Claim

Every pet bite case is unique. A Nevada dog bite injury lawyer will investigate the accident thoroughly, talking to eyewitnesses, obtaining copies of the police report, and gathering medical evidence. We look at the claim from every angle, considering the long-term health effects on the victim. Is the dog considered dangerous? Was the dog or exotic pet under control of the pet owner when the attack occurred? Has this type of incident happened before on the premises?
