Why do I need a car accident attorney?
If you were injured in a car accident that was caused at least in part by the carelessness of another driver, it’s important to contact the Las Vegas car accident lawyers at Lloyd Baker Attorneys as soon as possible. As an individual without legal experience and extensive knowledge of insurance company policies and tactics, you will likely not receive fair compensation from an insurance provider’s settlement offer. If it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit to recover damages, our attorneys can navigate you through the complex legal process while you focus on healing. We are often able to recover better settlements for our clients because of our willingness to litigate when necessary.
Should I seek medical attention after a car accident even if I don’t feel hurt?
Yes. Many car accident injuries, including severe conditions such as brain injuries, may not be accompanied by immediate symptoms. It’s important to undergo a medical evaluation for your own safety and to support your claim should you need to file a lawsuit.
What kind of compensation can I recover if I am injured in a car accident?
If you were hurt in a car accident that was the result of another driver’s negligence, you may be able to seek financial compensation that includes money for medical expenses, vehicle repair or replacement, rental vehicle costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. If the car accident was caused by a drunk driver, you may also be entitled to punitive damages, which is additional money intended to punish the liable driver for gross negligence and to deter others from driving under the influence.
Who determines fault in a car accident?
In most circumstances, a car accident can be attributed to one negligent driver. In other situations, multiple drivers or even poor road design may be responsible. Although fault may be indicated by the police report, insurance companies also assign degrees of fault to determine their compensation offers. When liability is in question, our Las Vegas car accident attorneys will carefully review all the available evidence, including police reports, witness statements, and photos or video of the accident site and vehicle damage. If necessary, we will collaborate with accident reconstruction experts to help support your case.
Can I still seek financial compensation if I was injured in a car accident and I was partially at fault?
If you are partially responsible for the car accident, you may be able to pursue compensation if another driver or drivers are determined to hold a higher share of responsibility.
Will I have to go to court to receive fair compensation?
Typically, a fair settlement can be reached through negotiations. However, if a just settlement cannot be achieved the Las Vegas car accident attorneys at Lloyd Baker Attorneys have the knowledge, expertise and willpower to fight for you in court. Our attorneys’ courtroom experience and willingness to litigate results in higher settlement and judgment amounts.
