Representing clients in several practice areas, as outlined below
Every day the average American driver spends an hour behind the wheel of a car. The majority of drivers log 25 miles a day between our early morning commutes, trips to the grocery store, dropping our children off at school, and everywhere else our busy lives take us. For the whopping 222 million drivers in this country, that time on the road becomes an almost mindless and integral part of the day. So nothing is more of a shock to our daily routine than the sound of brakes screeching and the crash of cars colliding.
Motorcyclists in Las Vegas are entitled to the same protections on the road as are afforded to the drivers of larger vehicles such as cars and trucks. Despite their smaller size, motorcycle riders on the road have the the same expectations to safety as the motorized vehicles around them. Often times drivers overlook the rights of a motocyclist and their negligence can cause serious injury and damage. Since motorcycle riders are unprotected by the bulk of an autombile frame they are left even more vulnerable to injury and road conditions.
Last year fatal car crashes in Nevada hit a 10-year high. Many of those accidents are caused by drivers operating vehicles under the influence. Despite the emergence of ride-share apps, and increased awareness of the dangers of impaired driving, many Las Vegas residents continue to engage in reckless driving.
Nevada home and business owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for customers and guests.
Whether you call Las Vegas home, or you are here on vacation, you have the right to a secure environment anywhere you go. Every day we visit stores, homes, and offices; and we have an expectation that the premises are kept safe from danger. We have an expectation that a reasonable effort has been made to mark areas frequented by people safe.
Commercial Truck Accidents
The difference in size between an 18-wheeler and a 4-door sedan makes it self-evident why collisions involving commercial trucks can be so devastating. These oversized vehicles can leave a path of destruction when they are operated recklessly. Sadly, a high percentage of these accidents usually result in a fatality, and even the non-fatal injuries are often life-altering.
Las Vegas is the 21st most dangerous metro area for pedestrian deaths in the U.S. The majority of these deaths were avoidable. Distracted and negligent drivers are often to blame. Many pedestrian accidents happen mid-block, or while crossing the street. But they can also happen while standing in a parking lot, or by cars backing out of driveways.
Slip and Fall
Business and home owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment for their visitors. When they fail to do so, they are negligent. Slip and Fall accidents fall under the legal umbrella of Premise Liability, which means they are liable for accidents that happen on their premises— but generally only if there is negligence.

How much will hiring an attorney cost me?
At Accident Attorneys of Southern Nevada we take no fee unless we recover money for you. We will review your case for free and let you know what you can reasonably expect for recovery. If we fail to get you money, we do not get paid.
Do I need a Laywer?
There is nothing in the law that requires you hire an attorney if you have been hurt in an accident. But, standing in the way of your just compensation is an insurance company– and behind them, lawyers. The insurance companies low-ball parties who do not have attorneys as a matter of policy.
How much Can I expect to Recover for My Injuries?
It depends. It depends how badly you are hurt. It depends on how well you have documented and treated your injuries. It depends on whether your injuries are permanent. It depends on the lawyer you hire and how experienced they are in presenting your claim.
