Las Vegas Accident Attorneys

Injured in an Accident? Bernstein & Poisson Can Help.

An accident, by its general definition, is an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance. Merriam-Webster offers a more descriptive definition as “an unfortunate event resulting especially from carelessness or ignorance.” From a legal standpoint, an accident may be described as an unpredicted incident that causes injury or loss, due to no fault of the victim’s, and for which he or she can pursue legal relief.

At Bernstein & Poisson, we represent victims of accidents across the Las Vegas area. We help those who have been injured themselves and those who have lost family members and loved ones. Our Las Vegas accident lawyers are highly experienced, with a history of representing the injured that began in 1983. As we exclusively represent the injured, we have honed our legal skill in this area and are prepared to put our talents to good use as we pursue maximum economic and non-economic damages that can help our clients rebuild their lives.

To find out how we can help, call (702) 602-8869. Your consultation is free and private.

After an Accident

What you do – and do not do – after an accident can have a direct impact on your ability to hold the negligent party accountable and pursue maximum compensation for your injuries or losses. As Las Vegas accident attorneys, we can offer helpful suggestions of steps to take to preserve your rights. It is important to remember, of course, that every case is different and therefore your approach may need to vary depending on the situation at hand.

If you were injured in an accident:

  • Try to remain at the scene, if possible, to gather information and evidence. This may include taking pictures with your phone and getting the contact information of any witnesses or other parties involved.
  • Do not admit fault. This is an important step, as apologizing or saying you were to blame could limit your ability to recover financial compensation in the future. Do not admit fault to anyone, not even to your own insurance company. Only a full investigation into the accident will reveal its cause – and you may be surprised to find that you were not to blame.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as you can. Be sure to see a doctor after an accident, even if you feel you have not suffered severe injuries. Some injuries, like whiplash or head trauma, could take some time to cause pain or other symptoms. See your doctor and explain what occurred so he or she knows what type of injury to look for.
  • Talk to an attorney. After an accident, you need someone in your corner who will support you and fight for your rights. An experienced Las Vegas personal injury attorney at Bernstein & Poisson can do just that, handling your case so you can focus on healing.
