Filing Personal Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Get a Fresh Start Through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

At the Law Offices of Barry Levinson, we understand that anyone can get overwhelmed by debt. Perhaps a costly medical emergency starts it off. Maybe an adjustable rate mortgage brings some surprises. No matter what the reason behind your debt load, there are options available to help you find relief.

Filing Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy is one of those options.

We will look at your bills. We will take great care to make certain that you only move forward if it truly makes sense in your situation.

How Does It Work?

In theory, Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves a process called asset liquidation. This does not mean that all of your assets will be taken away. You will be able to hold on to certain property. For instance, most filers are able to keep their home.

At our law firm, we take pride in helping people who qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy to eliminate debt while keeping their lives intact.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is fast. Once you have filed, it usually takes only a matter of months before everything is resolved. You could be free of debt in less than a year.

Las Vegas Bus Accidents Attorneys

More than 150,000 residents in the greater Las Vegas area ride Citizen Area Transit or CAT buses each week to get where they want to go quickly and easily. More than 25,000 Las Vegas visitors ride the popular Route 301 or Deuce on the Strip each week to see the sights and avoid the hassles of renting a car. The Las Vegas area is also served by Greyhound buses, as well as many charter buses, hotel shuttle buses and scenic tour buses.

Most riders arrive at their destination safely, but too many suffer injuries due to driver negligence or dangerous roadways. We represent bus riders, automobile drivers and their passengers and pedestrians.

You may be entitled to compensation for your losses, but you will never know unless you schedule a free initial consultation with an accomplished personal injury lawyer at our firm.

Observing the Statute of Limitations

In Nevada you have only two years after the accident happened to bring a lawsuit against a bus company for negligence. If you file after that, you will not be able to get compensation for losses. These often include:

  • Doctor, hospital and emergency room visits
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitation therapy

When we accept a case, we mount a thorough investigation into the causes of the hotel van or scenic tour bus crash, including driver negligence, the safety record of the professional driver and the maintenance schedule of the van, public transit bus or tour bus. We also consider the condition of the road at the time of the accident, as well as the frequency and types of accidents on that street or highway. We talk to eyewitnesses, obtain copies of the police report and build as strong a case as possible.
