Spine Injury

Nevada’s Spine Injury Lawyers

Injuries to the neck and back, surrounding nerves and spinal cord are often permanent and life-changing. They have a dramatic effect on nearly every aspect of the lives of injury victims and their families. Lawyers knowledgeable with these types of injuries will Increase the value of your claim. We handled thousands of these cases, ranging from simple soft tissue “whiplash” injuries to cases involving permanent paraplegia and quadriplegia. Spine injuries are frequently caused by the negligence of others and are always undervalued by both the people that cause them and the insurance companies responsible for them.

You are already a victim of an injury due to another’s negligence. We are here to make sure you do not get victimized again. Insurance adjusters and investigators will try to get you to make admissions and recorded statements that will hurt or eliminate the value of your claim. The insurance company will do anything to cheat you out of the money you rightfully deserve. Do not try to negotiate with an insurance company yourself. You will always come up shortchanged against this multi-billion-dollar industry. We have recovered millions of dollars for people who, according to the insurance industry and their lawyers, did not have a valid claim. Remember, you are not trained on what to do, where to go, and how to handle injury claims, unlike the insurance adjusters who will ultimately adjust and make decisions about your claim. They are professionally trained to minimize any potential exposure for each claim they receive. They will act as if they care about you and have nothing but the best intentions to make things right in your life. You are nothing more than a number or statistic to the insurance industry. They do not care about the extent of your loss and how the injury affected your life. They only care about one thing, making money by collecting by premiums while minimizing the amount paid for each claim, and all to line the pockets of its executives and shareholders. The more adjusters save the insurance company and wreck your life, the more money and praise they will receive from their superiors at their insurance companies.

You are always better off hiring a law firm who specializes in handling these claims to communicate with an insurance company if for no other reason than to avoid making statements that will inevitably be used against you. Do not wait for an insurance company or investigator to contact you after an injury, and if they do, please call our office before making any comments about your case. After obtaining as many damaging admissions as possible from you, the insurance companies will ultimately refuse to adequately compensate you while convincing you that they are generous in compensating you for your losses. The services of our personal injury attorneys will ensure the parties responsible are held accountable to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health.

Only lawyers with specific expertise in the medical, physical, financial, and emotional impact on the victim know how to handle cases, most of which involve traumatic brain and spine injuries. Our attorneys are experts who have represented hundreds of clients who sustained catastrophic injuries and understand that injuries to the spine and brain have long-term consequences. We know that these injuries must be addressed early to ensure all necessary treatments are received timely and provide the best recovery. We will make sure you receive the just compensation you deserve, including past and future lost wages, past and future medical care, and past and future pain and suffering.

The National Center for Injury Prevention has stated that more than one million Americans suffer a severe injury to the brain or spine each year. Children account for almost a third of those injuries. The costs to care and support a victim of a serious spine injury over his or her lifetime are staggering. When those injuries are the result of another party’s negligent actions, we can help. Our attorneys investigate and pursue your claims with a firm resolve to mitigate the cost of medical care to you and place them where they belong, squarely on the shoulders of the responsible party.

Nevada limits the amount of time to file a claim or lawsuit in a civil case, so it is critical that you or a family member contact our attorneys as soon as possible after an injury or accident. Some common causes of accidents that result in spine injuries include:

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Automobile accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Inadequate security
  • Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
  • Cracked pavement, sidewalks, uncovered utility access points, and dangerous landscaping
  • Products liability cases including malfunctioning car seatbelts, car seating, airbags, tire failure, furniture failure, electrical products, and other products
  • Items falling from a height, failed balconies, stairway railings, and inadequate lighting are other common causes of injury

We understand every person has a case that is unique. We treat you with the respect and integrity you deserve. We investigate each case to establish liability and determine value after meeting with each client individually and learning about the effects of an injury. Our experience taking cases to trial has proven that insurance companies tremendously undervalue cases and that they can be forced to pay full compensation for subjective claims. These include such claims as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. We have also been successful in proving claims for punitive damages (not damages for compensation to an injury victim but damages designed to punish and deter future similar undesirable conduct).  Punitive claims typically involve cases where a defendant consciously disregards public safety. We successfully achieved a multi-million dollar settlement against a national fast-food chain who prided itself on a culture of speed that included extremely fast delivery that ultimately destroyed a young man’s life.

The skill and experience of our spine injury lawyers and staff increase the probability that you will receive full compensation for all past and future loss of earnings, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and related costs. We can arrange for top-notch medical professionals to treat our clients who lack personal health insurance and would otherwise not have the means to obtain necessary treatments themselves.
