Las Vegas and Henderson are two of the fastest growing cities in the United States. As a result, our highways have become increasingly congested. Heavy trucking traffic, partying tourists and drunk or reckless drivers, add up to dangerous conditions that unfortunately frequently result in traffic accidents causing serious injuries or even death. Having a dedicated and experienced Las Vegas personal injury attorney during these trying times is of the upmost importance.
At Ghandi Deeter Blackham Law Offices, we represent people injured in Nevada car, truck, motorcycle and bicycle accidents. Our attorneys look carefully at every case, and have successfully tackled many that other firms have refused to handle.
Whether you need help negotiating a fair settlement with an insurance company or fighting an auto defect case in court, we can help to ensure that you get justice and fair compensation in your motor vehicle accident case.
It is important to know that following a car accident, it is common for an insurance company claims adjuster to contact you at the hospital while you are still groggy with pain medication. The adjuster will ask you questions about the crash and offer you claim forms to sign. This visit or call is designed to trap you into making statements that may permanently damage your case.
Before you sign anything, talk to an attorney who is on your side — not the side of the insurance company. Call our office at (702) 878-1115 so that we can discuss your case to ensure that you receive a fair outcome.
Our law firm works with medical and investigative experts to determine the cause of a motor vehicle accident and help us build an effective case for financial recovery for all of our clients’ physical injuries. We will diligently explore all avenues for compensation to ensure that justice is served.
Was your accident claim denied?
Insurance companies often deny legitimate claims, particularly claims involving uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. If your claim has been denied unfairly or your insurance company is unresponsive, our office will fight to get you the benefits you paid for.
Understanding your legal rights if your loved one died.
Often what a family wants in the aftermath of a fatal car accident is an advocate and counselor who will listen to their concerns, who will ensure their rights are protected, and who will support them through this devastating time of loss. You deserve a zealous advocate who will ensure that justice is served. At Ghandi Deeter Blackham Law Offices, we are there for you.
A wrongful death lawsuit can give your family an opportunity to get answers about the cause of the fatal crash, as well as to gain accountability from the negligent party. You can be compensated for the loss of financial support and the loss of companionship and assistance that follows the death of a loved one.
As Nevada personal injury attorneys, it is our job to ensure that our clients’ medical problems are fully identified and that a course of treatment and the costs associated with that treatment are well understood. We understand that litigation is a confusing process, and we will work to ensure that your questions are being answered every step of the way. We will present the insurance company and/or the jury with a compelling case regarding the value of your claims to ensure that justice is served.
What do I need to do immediately after the accident?
Following an accident, you may be confused as to how to best proceed. Follow the steps below in order to preserve your claim, as well as your right to be compensated. By taking a few simple steps after your accident, you may be able to increase your chances of having successful case. The personal injury attorneys at Ghandi Deeter Blackham Law Offices recommend taking the following steps following an accident:
Collect contact information.
- Gather the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the other parties involved, or any witnesses of the accident. Have these contacts handy so you can share them with your personal injury lawyer and case manager.
- If you didn’t collect the contact information of anyone at the scene, you can find this information in the police report. To pick up a copy of the police report, visit your local police station or contact the police station where your accident occurred.
Seek medical care.
- Sometimes injuries take time to present themselves, so even if you don’t think you’re hurt, we recommend you visit a doctor after your accident. This is true particularly for soft tissue damage, which is typically difficult to diagnose.
- Take notes about how you feel after the accident, what the doctor says, and your recovery process. Detailed information about your condition, medical treatment, and time that you’ve had to take off work because of your injury can all be useful information when your attorney and case manager are preparing your case.
Don’t sign anything without talking to us first.
Don’t sign anything without talking to our office first. Once you have secured representation from an attorney at our firm, we will communicate directly with the insurance company for you. If your insurance company or the insurance company of the other party contacts you, call us so we can make sure your rights to compensation are protected.
