It was a beautiful fall day in Las Vegas. Sunny, clear and a nice temperature. For whatever reason, the lady driving the car did not see the motorcycle in the oncoming lane of traffic approaching the green light at the intersection. She started making a left hand turn. She turned directly into the path of the oncoming motorcycle. At that point the collision was unavoidable. The motorcycle crashed into the side of the lady's car in the intersection. The lady was clearly at fault for causing this … [Read more...]
A common question from people in Las Vegas car crashes is whether they can accept the at-fault driver's insurance policy limits and still sue the at-fault driver for more money. This question is usually raised when the at-fault driver's insurance is not enough to pay the medical bills, lost income, property damage and other damages. In Nevada, a driver is only required to have liability insurance of $15,000/30,000. That means that in a Nevada or Las Vegas car accident, the minimum amount of … [Read more...]
When is an Injured Person Entitled to the Medical Records of the At-Fault Driver in Nevada Injury Cases?
I received a call recently for a Las Vegas personal injury car accident case. The caller said something that I hear on a regular basis. The injured person said that she "suspected that the at-fault driver was on drugs and was impaired." There were reasons stated for the suspicion. However, the Las Vegas Metro police officer investigating the Las Vegas auto accident did not conduct any type of field sobriety tests and the at-fault driver who caused the Las Vegas car crash was not given any … [Read more...]

It is true. We have a tendency to go from day to day expecting the best. In most cases, we do not expect a life-changing event. However, I have a law that often will arise when least expected or wanted. Yes, the dreaded "Murphy's Law." In a nutshell, Murphy's Law states: "if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong (at the worst possible time)." That is the way it seems to happen to a lot of people involved in Las Vegas traffic accidents. Everything seems to be going along well. You are working … [Read more...]

This morning I was thinking about the posts I put on this blog. I was questioning whether they are worth the time and effort. I questioned if anyone ever reads them. They take time and effort.

I received a call from a Las Vegas resident who read my post about the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) blood filters manufactured by Bard … [Read more...]
Not all Las Vegas injury lawyers are the same. Not all Las Vegas injury law firms are the same. In fact, they are all different. That is no surprise. Call a couple of different Las Vegas injury lawyers or law firms and you will see (or hear) the differences right away. Or maybe you won't. Maybe you will find that there is virtually no difference. You will talk to a receptionist who transfers you to a call center or intake person. You do not get to talk to the lawyer you called to speak with. … [Read more...]
