Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. An injury resulting in physical damage, bruising, tearing, or bleeding to the brain is a traumatic brain injury. A concussion usually heals over a few weeks, but severe TBI is likely to be chronic and can cause various debilitating problems.

Cuts and bruises Soft tissue injuries often heal quickly, but severe lacerations or contusions may affect internal organs or deep muscle tissue. Cuts or bruises to the eyes can result in permanent vision loss.

Broken bones. If ribs are fractured or bone ends are displaced, the injury can cause life-threatening complications by injuring internal organs.

At Lawyer One, we understand how traumatic car accidents can be for victims, especially if it occurred because someone else was reckless or negligent. Let us help you recover damages for your losses, pain, and suffering.

Las Vegas Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is best to do after a car accident?
  • Get Medical Treatment - If you think you have been injured in a car crash, get medical help immediately.
  • Notify Your Insurance Companies - You should notify your insurance company. You should state that you were involved in an accident and where and when the accident occurred.
  • Collect Evidence of the Accident - The better the evidence you have, the more successful your claim will be. Take pictures showing damage to any of the vehicles.

  • Contact An Attorney - You will need an experienced attorney like Lawyer One If you have been injured in an accident to help you negotiate with the insurance company to get the appropriate amount due to you.
How long can I take to file a claim? 
The Statute of Limitations in a car accident case is the amount of time you have to dispense with your claim with the insurance company or file a lawsuit. If that time passes, and you haven't settled your claim, you will lose your right to sue the at-fault party. After the limitations period, your case is closed.

Lawyer One attorneys understand the intricacies within each state and will make sure our claim is filed promptly.
Should I settle with the insurance company?
You shouldn’t settle with the insurance company before consulting a qualified attorney. The insurance company’s claims representative is a trained professional whose job is to settle your claim at the least cost to the insurance company. They will often contact you the same day the accident occurred and advise you that you do not need to pay a car accident attorney because they can settle it for you quickly.

You may not realize the total extent of your injuries, the expenses you will incur, or anticipate the magnitude of your pain & suffering until much later. You do not want to accept a low offer only to find it was not enough later.

  • Do not give the insurance company any written information about your accident, whether your company or the other party is involved.
  • Don’t sign anything. Never sign a release, waiver, or document without consulting with your Nevada car accident lawyer. You could be signing your rights away.
  • Do not take any money. The insurance company may offer you money, but it may be less than you deserve.
An experienced car accident lawyer will negotiate directly with the insurance company to obtain the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled.

Types of Car Accidents

Lawyer One car accident attorneys have experience handling a variety of car accident cases, including: 

Distracted Driving - Distracted driving is an action that takes a driver’s mind and eyes off the road and their hands off the wheel. Driving distracted is the primary cause of traffic accidents in the U.S.

Speeding - Driving above the speed limit is a common practice for many motorists. It’s also illegal behavior that increases the risk of losing control of a vehicle and causing an accident. Speeding is the second highest cause of road accidents in the United States.

Aggressive or Reckless Driving - Reckless driving usually involves a motorist that’s speeding, changing lanes without looking, tailgating other motorists, and ignoring road signs. It is an illegal driving habit that’s now the fourth most common cause of road accidents in the United States.

Drowsy Driving - Sleep deprivation and being tired from other activities or driving for too long can negatively impact your reaction time, reduce vigilance, and impair concentration, which are the common culprits of an accident.

Drunk or Intoxicated Driving - In Nevada, it is illegal for a driver under the age of 21 to have a blood alcohol concentration level greater than 0.02 percent for drivers under the age of 21, for commercial license holders 0.04 percent, and for all other drivers 0.08 percent. When people drive after consuming alcohol, their response time, and the ability to focus on the road is reduced, increasing the risk of an accident.

When to Hire a Car Accident Attorney

Do you want to face professional attorneys and adjusters who work full-time for insurance companies whose motive is to settle for the lowest possible amount?

There are many benefits to hiring a car accident attorney, such as Lawyer One, when you've been injured, especially if your injuries are serious.

  • Attorneys are professionals experienced in dealing with insurance companies in car accident cases.
  • Having an Attorney offers you leverage, so the insurance company does not take advantage of you.
  • Attorneys can advocate for you and prepare the accident demand package. The demand package includes documentary evidence of your claim, such as police reports, witness statements, medical bills, lost time and income from work. We use supporting comments from your employer and other parties involved who were affected by the accident, and any additional information that supports your claim.  
  • You need a negotiator; someone to explain why your case deserves more money than the insurance company might think it is worth. The accident demand letter will detail all suffered losses and include language to minimize the insurance company’s potential claims of comparative negligence. Your car accident attorney will use evidence and testimonies to block the insurance company’s attempts to split responsibility for the accident between you and the responsible party and reduce your settlement.  
  • An attorney can evaluate the insurance company’s offer to determine whether you are receiving fair compensation.

Car accident victims usually do not know what to do or not when dealing with an insurance company. They may say something to damage their claim, sign something that limits their rights or forget to include information that could affect the amount of their claim.

At Lawyer One, we believe that you deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have experienced, and your rights should be fully protected. We are experienced car accident attorneys who will stand up for you and work tirelessly to hold a reckless, careless, or negligent driver accountable for their actions and recover the highest settlement for your claims.

Let Us Help You Recover Damages

In law, damages are an award of money to be paid to a person as compensation for loss or injury. The purpose of damages are to restore the victim financially, physically, and emotionally for specific, documentable losses.

Our team of qualified, experienced attorneys is here to advise you on how to recover the maximum possible damages so that you can heal and move forward. Below are examples of special damages that we can help you recover:

Medical expenses - Injuries sustained in car accidents range from the most minor to the most debilitating, and some of these injuries do not present symptoms right away. If your doctor believes you may have future medical expenses resulting from the accident in question, we can factor those projected costs.

Common medical expenses that can be recovered include:

  • Ambulance fees
  • Hospital stays
  • Doctor's visits
  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Necessary in-home services
  • Physical therapy

Loss of wages/income - The injuries caused by a car accident may leave you unable to work either temporarily or permanently. If you are in the hospital for any amount of time, we want to help recover lost income during that period. Additionally, you may lose wages due to doctor’s appointments or physical/cognitive therapy appointments following your car accident. In the case of permanent injuries, we can seek professional help to determine the loss of earning capacity over your lifetime.

Pain and suffering - Pain and Suffering are one of the most commonly misunderstood terms in law.  For legal purposes, pain and suffering means physical and emotional damage. It includes discomfort caused by medical treatment of the injuries, limitations to daily activities, depression, scarring or disfigurement, and post-traumatic stress disorder caused by the accident. We can have professionals determine a fair compensation number and seek recovery for your pain and suffering.

Loss of companionship - Loss of companionship includes the loss of emotional support, intimacy, and friendship. When a loved one is severely injured, they are no longer able to be there for their spouse or children, help with chores, or take children to games. We can help seek compensation for the hardship their family faces.

While you focus on your healing & rest, let Lawyer One focus on recovering damages for our losses, pain, and suffering.
