FAQs with Las Vegas injury lawyers
What do you mean by “personal injury”? What sorts of cases does a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney handle?
“Personal injury” is a term that means any accident or occurrence that causes bodily injury. Some examples of the types of cases a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney handles include:
We don’t get paid until you do! We charge on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you will not pay us anything unless one of our Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys obtains a settlement or a winning verdict at trial.
Case costs are expenses that a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney incurs to get your case ready for presentation and trial. Examples include filing fees required by the court and expenses for depositions, medical records, and experts. Case costs vary depending on the complexity of the case, but we always have an up-to-date balance available if you want it. If we do not recover anything, you do not have to pay back the case costs. This is not true of all law firms, so if you choose not to use MLG Injury Lawyers for your case, please make sure you understand how your Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney handles case costs.
The “value” of your case depends on many factors, such as the extent of your injury, the amount of your medical bills, your condition after you have finished treating, etc. The calculation also involves the ability of the other party to pay a judgment, and whether you played any role in causing the accident.
We will not take your case unless we think it has a good chance of success. Even so, often through an insurance policy the State Bar of Nevada has been very clear that a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney cannot guarantee any specific outcome.
My insurance agent or adjuster says I can handle the case myself without a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney. Is this a good idea?
Since a consultation is free, it won’t hurt to ask us. Having worked as Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys for many years, we understand the compexities of your case, and insurance companies don’t like that. No matter how nice insurance adjusters sound on the phone, they have one goal in mind above all others: to pay you as little as possible. Insurance companies do not work for you and may not give you a fair assessment of the value of your case. Our Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys work for you. Make no mistake: the insurance company knows that it’s almost impossible to take a case to trial on your own.
If you hire our Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys, you will be a significant part of the case team. However, your main job is to work on your own recovery. We will ask you to help gather information that we will use to support your case. Just as we will keep you informed about your case, you will need to keep us informed about your medical treatment and physical limitations. Once you hire our Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys, we’ll handle the insurance companies, liens and disputes so you can start down a stress free road to recovery.
This can vary significantly in either direction based on the complexity of your case. In most instances, a lawsuit must be filed no later than two years from the date of your injury. However, there are instances when this timeframe is less. Our advice to our clients is to be patient. We are always willing to tell you exactly what is happening with your case. In the meantime, you have to trust that our Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys are working hard for you and how long your treatment lasts.
