WHEN YOU NEED TO WIN

Have You Suffered A Personal Injury Accident In Las Vegas?


People experience accidents in our state every day. Fortunately, most of these incidents are minor in nature. Just think of how many times the average person stumbles on their shoelaces or bangs their head leaning over a table. Unfortunately, there are many times when such incidents are anything but minor. Nevada emergency departments see around 3 million visitors yearly — a significant number considering our state’s sparse population.

Of course, not all accidents are considered personal injuries. This is a fact that leads many people not to seek compensation. After all, bad things simply happen on occasion. However, there’s often someone liable for such incidents, even if you don’t realize it. Even in an accident that seems to have no clear at-fault party — such as motorcycle accidents caused by road gravel or injuries resulting from falling branches — it’s often the case that someone is liable.

A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN LAS VEGAS CAN HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHETHER A THIRD PARTY WAS THE CAUSE OF THE LOSSES YOU’VE SUFFERED.

Do You Have A Valid Injury
Claim For Damages?


Knowing that someone else caused your injuries doesn’t necessarily mean you have a valid insurance claim or lawsuit. Unfortunately, knowing that someone is to blame and proving that they’re to blame are two separate endeavors. Any successful lawsuit will require an injury victim to show that a third party acted negligently or recklessly and that it was those actions that resulted in their losses.

It’s important to remember that “losses” may not always be what you’d expect. While hospital bills, lost wages, and other expenses immediately come to mind, you may also be entitled to additional damages that aren’t financial in nature. Pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment in life, and other non-economic losses are common in these cases.

A LAS VEGAS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY CAN HELP YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO.

QUESTIONS

Frequently
Asked Questions

After being injured in an accident, you’ve no doubt got plenty of lingering questions. As you’ve already learned, every case is different — so sitting down for a free case evaluation is the best way to get your questions answered. However, here are a few general questions that apply to nearly all personal injury claims.

What Should You Do
After Suffering An Injury
in Las Vegas?


How you respond to an injury will depend on the nature of the event that caused your harm. In many cases, contacting local authorities is the right move. Getting a police report on record can prove invaluable to your claim. This is particularly the case if you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident or experience sexual abuse. The method of reporting other injuries may vary — such as alerting a manager of workplace accidents or animal services of a dog bite — but establishing a record early on is imperative.

You’ll also need to make sure to seek medical care. Many of the damages that injury victims are entitled to relate directly to their medical expenses. Failure to seek care could result in you being unable to cover hospital bills. The simple fact is that not all physical harms are immediately apparent. Delayed symptoms are possible with many injuries. Failure to get a diagnosis and follow the doctor’s instructions can seriously derail your case.

What Type Of Damages
Might You Be Entitled To?


If you’ve been injured due to wrongful acts committed by another party, the damages you’re entitled to will depend on the circumstances of your case. Your personal injury lawyer in Las Vegas will be able to give you a better idea of what to expect, but all potential damages basically fall into three separate categories. Schedule a free consultation at High Stakes Injury Law today, and our legal team can help you understand whether you’re entitled to each:

SPECIAL
DAMAGES

The economic losses you face — such as medical expenses, lost income, and burial costs — fall under special damages. This is the most common form of financial recovery in personal injury cases.

GENERAL
DAMAGES

Non-economic losses can also be compensated. Chronic pain, emotional distress, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment in life, and loss of companionship all fall into this category. There is a cap to these damages in Nevada medical malpractice cases.

PUNITIVE
DAMAGES

In exceptional cases, the courts may award punitive damages to injury victims. These are not meant to compensate the victim. Rather, the goal is to punish the liable party. There is a cap on punitive damages in Nevada for most personal injury cases.


While you may also be entitled to recover compensation for things like attorney fees and court costs, the aforementioned three categories are the damages available in most cases. However, it’s important to remember that all claims are different. There’s no guarantee that you’ll be eligible for all these damages. Additionally, these may never even come up if your Las Vegas personal injury attorney can negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

HOWEVER, KNOWING WHETHER YOU’RE ELIGIBLE FOR DAMAGES STARTS WITH A SINGLE PHONE CALL. CONTACT HIGH STAKES INJURY LAW TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.

Why Choose
High Stakes Injury Law?

When you’re harmed due to the wrongful acts of another party, it’s important that you have a determined legal advocate on your side. Of course, there is no shortage of personal injury law firms in Las Vegas to choose from. So, why should you go with High Stakes Injury Law? We believe the following facts explain why:

Decades of
Legal Experience

You want an experienced Nevada personal injury attorney on your side, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at High Stakes Injury Law. Our law has a lifetime of legal experience — all focused on securing you the best outcome.

Locally-Based
Attorneys Serving You

Experience is one thing, but local experience is what really matters. Our law firm has been in the Clark County area spanning over four decades, and we’ve also served all the surrounding areas during this time. This has given us time to establish the local relationships necessary to successfully advocate for our clients.

Focused
on Personal Injury

You’ll come across many law firms that promise to handle “all your legal needs,” but should a personal injury lawyer in Las Vegas really handle criminal law and estate planning in their free time? High Stakes Injury Law focuses solely on personal injury, so you know your attorney has the focus and experience necessary to win.

We’re
Trial Lawyers

The majority of personal injury cases end up getting settled before ever going to trial. This is typically best for all parties involved. That’s why many law firms build their practices completely around settlement negotiations. Not High Stakes Injury Law. If the insurance company won’t pay a fair settlement, we’re ready to take them to court.

No Upfront
Costs

No one’s financial situation should dictate whether they’re able to secure justice. Far too many people don’t seek legal advice after suffering an injury because they don’t think they can afford it. That’s not the case at High Stakes Injury Law. We offer free consultations and work on a contingency-fee basis. That means you won’t owe a dime if we fail to recover compensation on your behalf.

Proven
Results

Any law firm can claim that they’ll fight diligently for their clients, but results matter far more than words. Our personal injury lawyers in Las Vegas have secured several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients. Just take a look at some of our Case Results, and you’ll see that we’re serious about securing maximum compensation.
