Top-Rated Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys
If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence or dangerous actions, the physical pain is just the start. Personal injuries also take a massive financial toll due to costly medical bills and lost wages, and the emotional strain is overwhelming. The other party’s insurance company will be making matters worse as well. Insurance companies have a reputation for trying to settle these cases for a fraction of what they are worth, and you are likely worried about what the future will bring if you don’t receive the money you deserve.
As a former insurance company defense attorney, Eric Blank understands your situation. He has seen insurance companies mistreat victims and now serves as an advocate for these victims. Contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today for a free strategy session. You can find out immediately if you have a claim against the at-fault party.
Eric Blank Injury Attorneys handle various personal injury cases. Our practice areas include:
Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys will evaluate the evidence to see if you have a claim against another party. Your case must meet four criteria for you to move forward and pursue damages. First, the other party must have owed you a duty of care, and second, that party must have breached it. For example, if someone runs a red light and hits your car, he or she has breached their duty of care.
Third, our attorneys must prove legal causation. This means that the other party’s actions caused an accident or injury. In the example above of someone running a red light and smashing into your vehicle, if that causes your leg to break, our attorneys can prove causation.
Fourth, you must have suffered damages to have a claim. To have a successful claim, you must have experienced an injury, property damage, or another loss. If you meet these four criteria, our personal injury lawyers can move forward with a legal claim.
When preparing your claim, our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys will help calculate the damages. You might be eligible for economic and non-economic damages, depending on the nature of the claim.
Economic damages consist of money you have lost due to the injury. For instance, you can collect damages to pay your medical bills and replace lost wages.
You also might be able to collect non-economic damages. These damages are more challenging to calculate since they are not associated with money you paid out of your own pocket. For instance, you might collect damages for pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury lawyer from our firm can assess your situation and determine what you are eligible to collect. Next, our attorneys can file the claim and pursue damages.
Most personal injury claims do not have damage caps. That means our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys can calculate a fair amount and then work toward a settlement or try the case before a judge or jury. However, non-economic damages are generally limited to $350,000 in medical malpractice cases, while damages are capped at $200,000 for claims against public employees. There are also other potential caps, including those for punitive damages. Consult with our personal injury attorneys to learn more about damage caps and see if they will impact your claim.
The clock starts ticking as soon as you are injured, and you only have two years in most cases to resolve a claim or file a lawsuit. If you file after the statute of limitations has expired, the other attorney can move to dismiss the case. While you have up to two years to file, you should not wait to retain an attorney to build your case. Evidence in these cases can disappear quickly, so it is important to take action to preserve video surveillance, track down witnesses, and more. Thus, contact our firm today to consult directly with one of our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys. Then, we can begin collecting evidence and building your case against the other party.
