No Fee Until Win

Auto Accident Attorneys

In the aftermath of a car accident, your mind may be racing with questions.

How will I pay for my medical bills?
How can I get a rental car for work and family obligations?
What if I can’t work due to my injury?

If you were hurt in a car accident that was caused by the carelessness of another driver, the Las Vegas car accident lawyers at Lloyd Baker Attorneys are here to help you. One of the most important steps you can take after a car accident is to contact our experienced team of car accident attorneys, who will meet you at the hospital or your home.

We can help you with your immediate needs, such as referring you to medical care with no out-of-pocket expenses to you. We can also arrange for your car to be fixed and assist you in finding a rental car.

The injury attorneys at Powerhouse Injury Attorneys can also help you pursue financial compensation for your car accident injuries and other related damages. Compensation in car accident cases may include money for medical expenses, lost wages if you are unable to work, vehicle repair or replacement, and pain and suffering.

A substantial number of car accidents in the Las Vegas area are caused by unlicensed drivers and underinsured or uninsured motorists. Because recovering compensation in these situations is complicated, it’s vital to have an experienced car accident attorney on your side.

You will also require aggressive representation even if you’re a car accident victim in which a fully insured driver is at fault. The Las Vegas car accident lawyers at Powerhouse Injury Attorneys understand insurance company policies and tactics, and we know that their initial settlement offers are typically inadequate to meet your needs.

Our personal injury attorneys have the knowledge, skills and tenacity to negotiate a fair settlement for you. We also have the experience to challenge insurance companies in court to ensure you receive just compensation.

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a car accident that was caused by the carelessness of another driver, please us for your free consultation. We value lifelong clients, and if you have been injured in an accident we want to be the one firm you call.

Auto Accident Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Seek Medical Attention Even Though I Seem Fine?

It is extremely important to go to the hospital immediately after the accident; at the very least, you should be seen by your physician. You may not notice symptoms immediately, especially if you have suffered a concussion or an injury to the soft tissue. A delay in seeking medical help can weaken your case. The insurance company may use your delay to argue that your injuries are not serious enough to justify compensation, that your injuries were not a result of the accident, or that you are attempting to secure as much compensation as possible without having a meaningful claim.

Will My Health Insurance Cover My Treatment?

If you have health insurance, the hospital or your doctor can bill your insurance company. The company can then seek to recover the cost of your care from the driver who was at fault. Depending on your policy, you may still be liable for copays or deductibles, but those amounts can be included in your suit.

What If I Do Not Have Health Insurance?

Certain hospitals and doctors will treat people injured in car accidents on a credit basis. It depends on the liability issues involved in your case and the provider’s policies. Furthermore, if your automobile insurance includes personal injury protection or medical payments coverage, you are probably covered. Your policy may have limitations, and your insurance company may be entitled to seek recovery from the other driver’s insurance company.

If I Live in Another State, Can My Attorney From Home Represent Me?

It is possible, but it is neither likely nor wise. First, your attorney would need to be admitted to practice law in Nevada. Second, a local attorney is much more familiar with the Nevada court system, the judges, and the resources that you or your case may need.

What If the Owner of the Other Vehicle Was Not the Driver?

If the owner of the vehicle gave the driver either implied or express permission to use the vehicle, the owner’s liability coverage extends to the driver. Express permission means that the owner gave explicit approval to the driver. Implied permission could be a history of the driver using the vehicle regularly. Furthermore, according to Nevada law, the vehicle’s owner is jointly liable for injuries caused by any member of his immediate family who resides in the home and who drives the vehicle.

What If the Other Driver Was in a Rental Car?

The driver’s insurance or the insurance he obtained from the rental agency will include liability coverage. If the rental agency failed to properly maintain the vehicle, rented to a minor, or was otherwise negligent in its duty, the agency may also be included in your lawsuit.

What Should I Do Immediately After an Auto Accident?

If you are injured in an auto accident, you need to call the police. The police report will be a critical piece of evidence in your case. If you are mobile, you can take pictures of the scene and the damages, exchange information with the other driver, or ask witnesses for their contact information. Do not make any statements about your fault or speculate about what happened. As soon as possible, report the accident to your insurance agent or company.

Should I Speak With the Other Driver's Insurance Company?

It is advisable to consult an experienced attorney and follow his recommendations. The defendant’s insurance company will work hard to find evidence to undermine your claim, so the company’s representatives will want to know about your prior injuries or ask you to make a statement, hoping that you will offer something that can be used against you. It is best if you simply refer them to your attorney.

Should I Accept a Settlement?

The first offer from the other insurance company is almost certain to be less than you deserve. However, after negotiating with the company, your attorney may recommend that you settle. It depends on your case.

What Compensation Might I Receive?

You may be eligible for a variety of economic damages as well as noneconomic damages. In some cases, punitive damages can also be awarded.

  • Economic damages are those that can be assigned a fixed monetary value. They include the repair or replacement of your vehicle, your medical expenses that are related to the accident, and your future and past earnings.
  • Noneconomic damages are meant to compensate you for damages that cannot be assigned a fixed monetary value. They include your mental anguish if you suffer a mental or physical impairment, your pain and suffering, and your loss of the ability to enjoy life.
  • Punitive damages can be assessed to punish someone where that was an intent to inflict harm, the driver was guilty of reckless endangerment, or the driver was driving under the influence or guilty of another type of criminal misconduct.

An attorney who has extensive experience in the area of auto accident law can be an extremely valuable member of your team. At Lloyd Baker Powerhouse Injury Attorneys, we will work hard to help you during this trying time. We have the experience and resources you need. We offer free case consultations, so schedule yours by calling 702-919-5756 or by contacting us through our website.

How Do I Know Whether I Have a Case?

There is no simple way to determine whether you have a case unless you consult an experienced attorney. In general, however, your fault should be 51 percent or less. You must also have suffered financial loss or an injury as a direct result of the accident.

I recently got my case handled at Lloyd Baker's attorney firm and Briseda did an absolutely wonderful job as my case manager as she was able to answer all of my questions and concerns. She was also helpful and kind enough to hand me the check even after their office was closed. I am very grateful for her and made me glad I took my case to Lloyd Baker's attorney firm. I will make sure to spread the good word for this firm. Thank you Bri!
