You have been in a collision and you don’t know what your next step should be. Our car accident attorneys in Las Vegas understand your confusion. We know that you are probably concerned over how you are going to pay for your medical care, how you should file a claim with the insurance company and how long it may take you to return to work.
The first thing we do is sit down with you to learn the details of your case. Maybe the other driver was drunk? Was there distracted driving involved? Did the design of the road contribute to your accident? Did a commercial company fail to properly maintain its vehicle? Once we understand the contributing factors, then we look at the circumstances surrounding your injuries. How severe are your injuries? Will you require future medical care? Will you suffer permanent disability? Will you be able to return to your current job?
Compensation and Auto Accident Lawyers in Clark County
After our Las Vegas car accident attorneys have a clear understanding of your situation, we can help you calculate an appropriate amount of compensation to ask for. In personal injury cases, there are a few different types of compensation that you may be entitled to. These types include the following:
- Monetary damages – under this category, you can ask the other party to cover your financial costs associated with the accident. This includes repairs to your vehicle (or replacement of your vehicle), medical care, personal items lost in the accident such as electronics or jewelry, and lost income
- General damages – often in a car accident you suffer more than just monetary losses. You may have experienced emotional trauma, struggle with anxiety or depression from the accident, a reduced quality of life, or you may suffer with ongoing physical pain.
- Punitive damages are usually reserved for accidents involving company vehicles. This damage is often referred to as a financial punishment to a company for failing to properly train its drivers, encouraging dangerous behavior or for not taking care of the fleet vehicle’s regular maintenance.
At George T. Bochanis Law Offices, we believe that at-fault drivers and/or companies should pay for the sufferings and losses you have incurred as a result of their actions.
