Our Practice Areas

Personal injury law covers any situation where a wrongful act results in injuries or financial loss. This can include an expansive area of negligent and reckless behaviors. That’s why our legal team handles all the following case types:

Personal Injury

When another party’s negligence or reckless acts cause you injury, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses. 

Bicycle Accident

Nevada is one of the most perilous states for bicyclists. Some of our cities actually rank among the most dangerous in the nation. 

Boat Accident

Whether you’re on Lake Mead or a friend’s private pond, a boating accident can cause significant injuries. 

Car Accident

Did you know that driving a vehicle is one of the most dangerous activities you’ll do during the day? Negligent drivers often make Nevada roadways unsafe. 

Casino Injury

If you suffered an injury inside a casino, the establishment may be liable for your damages. 

Catastrophic Injury

Injuries that cause long-term consequences can change a person’s entire life. It’s important to hold negligent parties responsible. 

Child Victims of Sexual Abuse

Nevada law offers some of the most significant protections for child victims of sexual abuse. It’s possible to hold predators accountable long after the fact. 

Dog Bite

Although our state’s “one-bite rule” can make seeking compensation difficult, it’s far from impossible with a Nevada personal injury lawyer on your side. 

Drunk Driving Accident

Nevada has a serious problem with drunk drivers. If you or a loved one were injured due to an intoxicated driver, it’s important that you seek justice. 

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals have a significant duty of care to their patients. When they violate this duty, they may be financially liable. 

Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycles are fun, but negligent drivers far too often put bikers in danger. If you’ve been hurt, you may have a valid personal injury case. 

Nursing Home Abuse

Abuse in nursing homes has become an epidemic since COVID-19 hit the scene. Don’t let the harm your loved one faced go unanswered. 

Nursing Home Negligence

Abuse in a nursing home isn’t necessary to cause harm. Simple negligence can result in significant injuries. 

Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrians have very little protection from motor vehicles, so physical harm in these accidents is often severe. 

Sexual Abuse Victims By Doctors

Sexual abuse is a tragedy when it occurs, but when the predator is a healthcare professional, cases are particularly disheartening. 

Slip & Fall Accident

Personal injury lawyers in Nevada see slip and fall injuries on a daily basis. Falls are the most common unintentional injuries. Negligent property owners may be liable. 

Truck Accident

Large trucks present a disproportionate hazard on America’s roadways. Seeking compensation may be the only way to pay for what could turn into years of treatment. 

Uber & Lyft Accident

Rideshare companies provide a great service to the people of Nevada, but they also increase potential roadway dangers. 

Workers Compensation

You shouldn’t have to fight to get benefits after a workplace injury. If you’re having trouble, a workers’ compensation lawyer can help. 

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence is one of the most disheartening experiences on earth. Make sure you hold liable parties accountable. 

Product Liability

Consumers expect the products they buy to be safe. If this doesn’t happen, they may have a valid personal injury claim. 

Premises Liability

Property owners and occupants have a responsibility to those who visit their property. This is sometimes even true for trespassers who enter the premises. 

Head on Collision

Head-on collisions are particularly devastating car accidents. Make sure you have a personal injury lawyer in Nevada on your side to fight for maximum compensation. 

Rear End Collision

Contrary to popular belief, not all rear-end accidents are caused by trailing drivers. A car accident attorney can help prove your case. 

Bus Accident

Bus drivers and companies have a significant duty of care to passengers and others on the road. They must be held accountable when they violate this duty. 

Brain Injury

Suffering a serious brain injury can result in life-changing consequences. Securing financial recovery is a necessity. 

Spine Injury

A spinal injury can require a lifetime of care. This will quickly get expensive. That’s why you need a Nevada personal injury attorney on your side.
