The Travelers Insurance Company elevated Craig to the position of its major case unit trial attorney in Nevada in recognition of Craig’s distinguished trial skills and his tenacious commitment to his clients.
Before devoting his career to exclusively representing injury victims, Craig represented doctors in medical malpractice cases, and major Las Vegas hotel/casinos in premises liability cases. He represented insureds on behalf of Allstate Insurance Company, Farmers Insurance Company, State Farm Insurance Company, Progressive Insurance Company, Geico Insurance Company, Hertz Rent-A-Car Company, and Avis Rent-A-Car Company. Craig has taken his insider’s knowledge and now exclusively represents seriously injured people and their families against the major insurance companies and corporations who are responsible for his clients’ injuries.
