We understand what you are going through after a car accident. Whether you are the victim yourself, or the loved one of a person who has been injured or killed in a crash, we know the fear and sadness you are experiencing. Injuries from a car accident can be tragic, and it is not uncommon for a car accident victim to develop psychological injuries – in addition to their physical ones – immediately after the crash, or during the recovery process.
Coping with these emotions and knowing what comes next can feel overwhelming. That’s where we want to help – while we cannot change the fact that the car accident occurred, we can help you to understand your rights and recover the money you deserve. While we know that all the money in the world is not enough to undo the wrong that you have suffered, financial recovery can provide you with the resources that you need to begin to build your future. We are committed to helping Las Vegas auto accident victims who are in need of legal assistance.
The Las Vegas auto accident attorneys at Ladah Law Firm, PLLC know how the insurance companies think. There is no such thing as a fair settlement with their first offer. Previously, Ramzy Ladah worked for the insurance companies that pay out personal injury claims. He has been inside the belly of the beast, as it were, and he understands their strategies and motivations. Before you settle for an amount that seems to be fair, give us a call. The last thing you want is to be stuck with costly expenses after your settlement money is gone.
A car accident creates a complicated process to receive a fair settlement. The main goal of the insurance company representing the responsible party is to pay you as little as possible. Our goal is the opposite. We go over all the details of the accident, your personal injuries, and your goals to make sure you receive a settlement that offers you a hopeful future. Anything less isn’t justice.
In order to recover the compensation that you deserve, you will need to prove that the other driver did something negligent to cause the car accident. Common causes of car accidents in Las Vegas (all of which are acts of negligence) include:
The above are not the only causes of car accidents; acts of aggression, illegal lane changes, tailgating, driving fatigue, illegal turns, and multiple other dangerous behaviors can cause car accidents, too.
The costs of injury in a serious car accident can be great. This is especially true when the injuries sustained cause lasting or permanent damage, physical or psychological. In this sense, damages are often far greater than just medical costs or a property damage claim to for a vehicle’s repairs; instead, they may extend to include:
In addition to the above, a car accident victim may be awarded a settlement that accounts for all economic and noneconomic losses suffered, and in some cases, punitive damages as well.
All drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles responsibly. When a driver violates their duty of care during operation due to an act of negligence, resulting in a car accident, they may be held liable. Examples of negligence, or a breach of the duty of care, include speeding, texting while driving, driving drunk, changing lanes illegally, running a stop light, driving distracted, driving aggressively, and any other acts that a normal person would consider to be unreasonable.
In a truck accident, liability is often more complicated as there are more parties involved. Not only are there two drivers – the truck driver and the victim of the accident – but there is also a trucking company, a shipper of goods, and perhaps additional third parties. Finding out who was at fault can be more complicated, and more than one party may be named in a claim.
It is also important to note that in Nevada, liability may be shared between the defendant and the plaintiff. Insurance companies will capitalize on this, often trying to blame the accident on the claimant so that they can reduce the amount of damages they are liable for.
In order to recover your full compensation amount, you will need to prove negligence and liability. Useful pieces of evidence that can be used include witness testimony, expert testimony, video footage, police reports, physical evidence at the accident scene, and photos. You should be sure to speak with a Las Vegas car accident lawyer for help with your case.
Talk to anyone in any city in the United States. It’s frustrating and even dangerous to be around a gawking driver from out of town. Las Vegas, with 40 million visitors per year, has more than its fair share of rubbernecking tourists, making driving in Las Vegas riskier than normal.
If you have been injured in a car accident in Las Vegas, it doesn’t matter where you are from, you will need experienced Las Vegas Car Accident attorneys to help you secure financial recovery for your injuries and losses. Help us help you: 702-252-0055.
You should check to make sure that everyone is okay or whether they need an ambulance to come out to the scene. Check with everyone in your vehicle first and then go to any other vehicles involved in the crash to check. If someone is badly hurt, call emergency services. An ambulance will come right out. Remember, that nothing is more important than people’s health.
Of course, if you are the one who is badly injured, ask someone else to call for an ambulance.
They pretty similar, to be honest. However, one big difference is that the insurance policies for car accident cases usually have lower limits. For example, Nevada only requires that drivers carry $25,000 per person in bodily injury liability insurance. In many cases, this insurance policy is the upper limit that a person can recover.
Of course, you might also have underinsured motorist insurance, which can significantly increase the amount of compensation available, especially if you have a “stackable” insurance policy.
In other cases, such as personal injuries in a business, the insurance policies should have higher limits. The same is also true with someone’s homeowners’ insurance policy for injuries sustained on someone’s property.
You must follow your doctor’s advice. If you don’t, then you will not only make it harder to recover fully. You will also make it harder to receive full compensation for your injuries.
Every car accident victim owes a duty to mitigate their damages, and this includes receive prompt medical attention, following your doctor’s advice, and attending regular checkups.
For example, if your doctor advises that you stay off your feet while you recover, then you should certainly do that. You should not go out partying or riding a bicycle, which only risks harming yourself even more.
Car accident victims should also avoid self-diagnosing their injuries. Wikipedia is not a substitute for a doctor’s advice. If you do not feel you are improving, then reach out to a different doctor for a second opinion. But do not simply start self-medicating yourself.
Pain and suffering damages often make up the bulk of our client’s settlements. Many people can receive much more in pain and suffering than they do in medical care and lost wages. But proving pain and suffering has always been a challenge. Some jurors are skeptical when victims claim to be in pain, wrongly believing that the victim is exaggerating or lying.
At Ladah Law, we realize that pain might be invisible to the naked eye but that it is no less real. We help clients document their pain by advising the following:
By collecting this evidence, we can paint a vivid picture for the jury about how the car accident has dramatically changed your life for the worse.
This is a great question! The simple fact is that insurance agents do not represent you, the victim. They do not have what is in your best interest at heart. Instead, their sole goal is to hopefully settle the dispute for as little money as possible.
One thing many adjusters tell victims is that they must give a recorded statement about the accident. No, you don’t! In fact, you can wait until you have hired a lawyer—who represents your best interests—before you talk to the insurance company.
Other insurance adjusters claim that you will be better off without a lawyer. Wrong again! The fact is that an experienced car accident lawyer is better poised to maximize the amount of your settlement by aggressively negotiating with an insurance company.
Finally, many insurance adjusters might tell you that they are only authorized to offer up to a certain dollar amount. While this is sometimes true, the larger truth is that more money is often available. The insurance adjuster just needs approval to increase the amount they offer.
In Nevada, any motor vehicle collision that results in an injury or in at least $750 in property damage should be reported to the police. If you were involved in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, it is strongly in your interests to make sure that a police officer responds to the scene of the wreck. Among other things, this law enforcement officer will draft an official crash report. You can obtain this report by using the official online records request system set up and maintained by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).
Valuing a car accident claim is a complicated process. In Nevada, injured victims have a legal right to seek financial support for their economic and noneconomic damages. This means that your car accident claim should be worth the same amount as the value of your damages. Of course, certain damages, such as pain and suffering, can be very difficult to put a precise value on. During a free consultation, an experienced Las Vegas car accident lawyer will be able to review the specific nature of your collision and help you understand the likely range of the value of your case.
Not necessarily. The overwhelming majority of auto accident claims are settled outside of the courtroom. In fact, in many cases our Las Vegas car accident attorneys reach full and fair settlements without ever filing a lawsuit. That being said, getting maximum compensation from an insurance company always requires building a strong, compelling legal claim that demonstrates to the insurer that you would eventually prevail in court — should your case move to litigation. Our car accident attorneys help our clients put together all relevant evidence in the strongest possible claim so that they can get access to every dollar that they deserve.
No. You have no legal obligation to give a statement to the other driver’s insurance provider. It is simply not in your interests to do so. Insurance companies train their adjusters to probe accident victims to look for any information that can be used against them to reduce the settlement value of their case or, worse yet, to deny a claim altogether. They may twist your words. The best thing that you can do to protect your rights is to let your Las Vegas, NV car accident attorney handle all correspondence and negotiations with the insurance company.
This is a common misconception. You can always afford to retain a top Las Vegas car accident attorney. Our legal team handles personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. We do not charge our clients out-of-pocket costs. Our law firm will recover our legal fees as a percentage of your settlement or personal injury verdict. If we do not win your case, then we will not get paid. It is as simple as that. You do not have to worry about getting stuck with additional bills.

Although most car crashes are caused by at least one of the party’s negligence, it is not uncommon for accidents to occur as a result of a vehicle malfunction. While some problems are not expected and cannot be prepared for because they’re the result of a design or manufacturing defect, other issues can be prevented by performing routine maintenance.
We understand that not all car owners are mechanics and that in-depth and expert inspections and repairs are not usually practical or affordable. There is some maintenance, however, that drivers can do themselves, or can have completed by a mechanic for a relatively low price, that could end up saving them from sustaining serious injuries or having to make expensive vehicle repairs down the road. Car owners who take the following steps will be able to decrease their chances of being involved in an accident caused by their own vehicle’s malfunctioning:
While making regular inspections does not guarantee that you will not be involved in a car crash, it does significantly increase your odds of arriving safely at your destination.

Some of those who are involved in car accidents are lucky enough to escape with only a few bumps and bruises or no injuries at all. However, it is unusual for a vehicle that has been involved in a crash to end up with no signs of damage. Dents and scrapes are common in almost all types of crashes and many cars sustain much worse damage in serious accidents. While these minor problems can be repaired relatively quickly, other damage, especially to the engine or transmission can take weeks to fix. In many cases, vehicle damage is so severe that entire parts need to be replaced. Replacement parts can take weeks to be delivered, especially for older cars or vehicles that have been discontinued. Alternatively, a car may be so damaged that it is considered a total loss, in which case, the car’s owner will need to purchase a new one, a process that could also take a significant amount of time.
Fortunately, car accident victims can get reimbursement for the cost of renting a car while their own vehicle is being repaired or replaced. Nevada law requires car owners to purchase minimum liability insurance of $10,000 for property damage, which includes reimbursement for renting a car. However, if a car is in the shop for a significant period of time, this amount may not cover both the damage and the cost of renting. In these cases, the victim’s uninsured motorist coverage will help offset the remaining cost. Otherwise, a person who has been injured in an auto accident, has the option of filing a claim against the at-fault party to recoup those losses.
For help determining who will pay for your own rental car after an accident, please contact the injury attorneys at Ladah Law Firm at 702-252-0055. We realize that accidents can happen at any time and so are available to address your questions or concerns on a 24/7 basis.
Here is another source where you can find more information about renting a car after an accident.
Many car accident victims are in a state of shock after a crash or are so pumped full of adrenaline that they don’t initially realize that they are injured. For example, even minor car crashes can place a significant amount of stress on a person’s joints and muscles. However, these effects may go unnoticed until many hours have passed since the accident when a victim begins experiencing pain. This is often the case for whiplash victims, who may not notice their pain until the morning following the crash. Immediate treatment is key in these cases, so if you have been in an accident, it is important to visit a doctor as soon as you notice any pain.
Concussions are another type of injury that may go unnoticed after a car crash, but can have serious repercussions if left untreated, so as soon as car accident victims recognize any of the following symptoms they should seek medical aid immediately:
Obtaining medical help immediately after noticing an injury can make all the difference in a victim’s chances of making a full recovery.

Car crashes can take a significant physical, emotional, and financial toll on both victims and their families. Injured parties may be required to pay for surgery, therapy, and prescription medications along with other medical expenses, all of which can quickly drive a family into debt. Fortunately, injured parties can collect compensation from the individuals responsible for their accident, so if you were injured in a car crash, please contact the car accident attorneys at Ladah Law Firm by calling 702-252-0055 and a member of our dedicated legal team will help you set up a free consultation.

Traffic Fatalities by Type 
Nationwide, traffic deaths are on a downward trend (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). However, Nevada in general has experienced a 7% increase, due to a slight uptick in the state’s rural counties. In Metro’s jurisdiction, more pedestrians died than drivers.
In 2013, there were 70 deaths and the numbers grow year over year. Nevada Department of Transportation
When someone has been injured or killed in a motor-vehicle accident in Nevada, the victim and their family members are left with medical bills, lost income, and other costs.
