What Is a Personal Injury Attorney in Las Vegas?

As you go about your daily routine, it's likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A personal injury lawyer in Las Vegas represents those who have been injured because of another party's carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed Las Vegas personal injury attorney can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court.

Although personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes several broad types of cases personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.

Motorcycle Accidents

Traveling by motorcycle in Las Vegas, Nevada is inherently riskier than taking a car, especially if the motorist or passenger isn't wearing a helmet. Motorcyclists and their passengers suffer severe injuries and even death at higher rates than other motor vehicle occupants. Their bodies have more potential exposure to outside forces since they don't have the protection of seatbelts, airbags, rollbars, and other luxuries passenger vehicles afford. Without protection, motorcyclists in Las Vegas frequently have severe road rash, broken bones, and head injuries. Nearly 5,000 motorcyclists were fatally injured in 2018, and approximately 82,000 suffered other injuries in 2018 alone. To help prevent and reduce the number of injuries and deaths, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) encourages Las Vegas motorcyclists to make themselves visible to other motorists, use U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant motorcycle helmets, and avoid riding after alcohol or drug use. A personal injury attorney in Las Vegas can help injured motorcyclists, their families, and their passengers pursue compensation for their losses.

Traffic Accident Injury Cases

Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.

Premises Liability Injury Cases

In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.

Product Liability Injury Cases

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaintsof injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don't warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product's chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.
