Make An Additional $10,000 with Medical Payment Coverage in Nevada! posted by: admin | view post | comment
April 15, 2014
In Nevada, your auto insurance carrier has no subrogation for payments made from your Medical Payment coverage. Why do you care? Because this could mean an extra $5,000 or $10,000 in your pocket! How? Consider this:

You are in an auto accident and need medical assistance. You call me, your Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney, and I help put you in touch with doctors who not only know how to treat your condition, but who know how to document your treatment to preserve your rights. At the end of your treatment, your medical bills are $10,000. Your case settles for $20,000. Out of this settlement, you have to pay your legal fees and medical bills and are left with around $4,000.

Now, consider if you have $10,000 in Med Pay available. In this scenario, your Med Pay pays all your medical bills, making your net settlement $14,000! Why? Because "no subrogation" means Med Pay cannot take what they pay from your settlement like your doctors and medical insurance can. In many states this is not the case, but the Nevada Supreme Court has consistently held that your auto insurance carrier CANNOT double dip, ie, they cannot charge you for Med Pay and then take back what they paid because you already paid for it through your premium.

LESSON: Do not listen to anyone who tells you NOT to purchase Med Pay because you have health insurance. There are many moving parts to a viable Personal Injury case and the attorneys here at MLG Injury Lawyers ensure your rights are preserved. But if you have sufficient Med Pay in place when you call us, we can always get you more money!

Legionella / Legionnaires Disease Exposure in Henderson, NV posted by: admin | view post | comment
November 14, 2013
 

We have unconfirmed tips that persons in Southern Nevada (Henderson, NV) may have recently been exposed to Legionella, which causesLegionnaires Disease, in November 2013. After exposure to legionella bacteria, legionnaires' disease usually develops within 2 to 14 days. It frequently begins with the following signs and symptoms:

  • Headache

  • Muscle pain

  • Chills

  • Fever that may be 104 F (40 C) or higher


By the second or third day, you'll develop other signs and symptoms that may include:

  • Cough, which may bring up mucus and sometimes blood

  • Shortness of breath

  • Chest pain

  • Fatigue

  • Loss of appetite

  • Gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

  • Confusion or other mental changes


Although Legionnaires' disease primarily affects the lungs, it occasionally can cause infections in wounds and in other parts of the body, including the heart.

A mild form of Legionnaires' disease known as Pontiac fever may produce symptoms including fever, chills, headache and muscle aches. Pontiac fever doesn't infect your lungs, and symptoms usually clear within two to five days.

How to Beat A DUI

In Nevada, there are 2 ways for the prosecution to prove your DUI:
1st is by showing your breath or blood had a BAC (blood alcohol content) of .08 or higher within 2 hours of the stop.

2nd is by having the officer's testimony on your driving pattern (swerving), Field Sobriety Tests, smell of alcohol, etc.

To defend you in a DUI case, a good attorney MUST know how the officers were trained in giving Field Sobriety Tests and must understand the chain of evidence laws to prevent the blood or breath from coming into evidence. As a former DUI Prosecutor, I was trained several times per year in both.

Call today for a free consultation and discuss how to beat your DUI!
