Las Vegas Personal Injury Laws
Personal injury cases are subject to numerous State and local rules of procedure and the substantive rules of law in the area referred to as “tort law.” Tort law in Nevada as it applies to personal injury cases generally includes a focus on the elements of negligence. It is the responsibility of the injured person to prove that a person or entity who caused the injury to prove negligence. This accomplished by accumulating evidence, including photos, videos, expert reports, scene diagrams, witness statements, police and incident report, medical bills, and medical records, and using that evidence to prove that not only did the responsible person have a legal obligation to act in some manner or to not act in some manner, but that they failed to do so and that such failure was the cause of the accident.
Most personal injury cases are met with a fairly high level of opposition from the responsible person, company, and/or their liability insurance company. This opposition is typically handled be a person generally referred to as an adjuster. It is the adjuster’s job to evaluate fault and to adjust the claim to a more favorable value. They do this by scrutinizing the incident and the medical treatment, in the hopes of preventing the injured person from proving liability and to minimize their damages. Combating these efforts to pay you less money is no small task, and requires knowledge of personal injury law, organization, persistence, and ruthless negotiating.
The complexities of a personal injury case necessitate scrutiny on behalf on the injured person in selecting a personal injury attorney. It is wise to avoid taking the easy route and placing a phone call to the personal injury attorney whose television ads you have seen the most.

Car accident cases fall into a category of law called Tort Law. Torts generally involve the cases that arise between people or between a person or persons and an entity. Typically, the claims in tort law involve some type of damage or harm to someone interests, property, or person. These cases are typically prosecuted by personal injury attorneys. A personal injury attorney should have knowledge and experience in the laws and procedures that are specifically applicable to auto accident cases. For example, many attorneys may not be familiar with the Rules of the Road, codified at NRS 484B, which legislatively codify many of the rules for operating a motor vehicle in Nevada. The Rules of the Road exist in conjunction with, and at times in place of, common law (judge-made law). Combined with Federal, State, and Local rules of procedure, the cloud of applicable laws can easily confuse the inexperience auto accident attorney.

- Call the police. The will result in an office coming to the scene, who will assign fault…this is valuable evidence. If you are hurt, this call will also get medical personnel to the scene.

- Examine your surroundings. Take note of where you are, where your car is, and where other people and vehicles are.

Sometimes auto accident cases result in conflict between the injured person and the responsible person (or their liability insurance carrier or attorney) that simply cannot be resolved amicably. Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible. If their offer is not acceptable, personal injury law in Nevada gives the injured person the right to file a lawsuit. This is a serious matter, and you need serious help. Not all attorneys are equal, and you need an attorney who is not afraid to file the lawsuit and litigate the lawsuit aggressively to get you the money your case is really worth. Make sure you retain the best possible representation in your auto accident case. You don’t want an auto accident attorney to get you headed in the direction of a trial without getting your case properly prepared.
