Compensation You May Be Able to Recover
It can be easier to imagine securing a financial award for the things for which you have receipts. Economic damages can include medical costs (hospital stays, emergency treatment, follow-up doctor visits, prescriptions) or damage to your vehicle.
Things like repayment for the cost of in-home help while you were bedbound or any lost wages or benefits could also be types of damages for which we could fight.
You could also collect compensation for things like pain and suffering and loss of limb. You might never have imagined that you would need to put a price on something intangible like turmoil. However, an accident can entitle you to damages of all kinds. We can help you valuate all of your intangible losses, as we have done so for many parties before you.
Your Next Steps
If you have not sought medical treatment since your North Las Vegas accident, we encourage you to do so immediately. The sooner you can get a physical examination and diagnosis of any accident-related injuries, the easier it can be to connect your doctor’s visit to the accident itself. Do not give the insurance adjuster an excuse to claim that you are not as hurt as you claim because you waited to get treated.
Keep all documents together so that it is easier to provide us with as much evidence as possible. If you have photos, videos, or receipts relevant to your vehicle damage or bodily injury, send them to your North Las Vegas personal injury lawyer.
We also recommend that you do not speak to your friends about the accident. It can be tempting to express your frustrations, but we encourage you not to post on social media about the accident or reach out to any other party involved in the accident. You might accidentally admit fault and jeopardize your right to compensation. Your admission of fault could count as evidence that the other party can use to claim that you should not collect as much compensation (or any at all).
Hire an Attorney to Represent Your Interests
You do not have to retain a lawyer under the law. However, having a professional by your side can make things less stressful. You do not have to take on this fight alone. Our team can walk you through the process.

How Your Lawyer Will Help You
A representative could perform many actions for you so that you do not have to. They can also handle tasks that you may be unable to. A lawyer might have access to certain contacts and resources that you do not have. These could include a support staff that can carry out tasks to save you time and energy or medical experts that could provide testimony supporting your claim.
The Bernstein & Poisson staff will do the following:
- Gather evidence and use it to build your case
- Record eyewitness testimony
- Argue that you are entitled to fair compensation
- Represent you in court (if necessary)
- Negotiate with insurance companies
- Valuate your losses
- Explain the insurance claims process
- Protect your rights
Who Might Be Liable for Your Injuries
Depending on your accident, several parties could be liable for your injuries. If you suffered a motor vehicle accident, one or more drivers could have been negligent. A trucking company or mechanic could also be liable.
A driver might have been speeding or driving while fatigued. If that person was a commercial truck driver, they might have been encouraged to do so by their boss. This could make their employer vicariously liable for the crash.
Slip and Falls
A casino, restaurant owner, or property manager could also be held responsible if you broke your leg due to slipping in a puddle they knew about and failed to clean up. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe. If they failed to do this, we can prove that they are liable for your fall.
A medical staff member could have filed your information incorrectly, a surgeon could have left a tool inside your body, or a doctor could have failed to properly diagnose your condition. Any of these factors could make you eligible for a financial award. A hospital or practice could also be liable for the action (or inaction) of one of its employees. Your North Las Vegas personal injury lawyer can help you prove that you suffered due to medical negligence.
