Las Vegas Car Accident Attorneys Bernstein & Poisson

Las Vegas Car Accident Lawyer

60+ Years of Legal Experience On Your Side

An accident, by its general definition, is an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance. From a legal standpoint, an accident may be described as an unpredictable incident that causes injury or loss, due to no fault of the victim’s. As such, if you were injured in an accident, you have a legal right to hold negligent parties accountable and pursue compensation for your losses.

If you've been injured in a car accident, or a family member has been hurt or killed, it is highly recommended that you work with a car accident lawyer in Las Vegas in order to obtain the maximum financial compensation from the liable parties and insurance companies.

Bernstein & Poisson has 60 years of combined experience winning favorable results for clients who have been injured. Most professionals who deal with the aftermaths of car accidents in Nevada are well aware of our reputation.

Why Do You Need An Attorney?

Car accidents are common, and as such, many people choose to handle them on their own. As a result, many victims of injury do not receive the amount of compensation they need to cover medical expenses, physical damages, or loss of quality of life.

  • You get a dedicated advocate to negotiate with the insurance company
  • You get a knowledgeable advisor, helping you compile evidence to support your case
  • You get a fierce litigator fighting for your best interests either in or out of court

Bernstein & Poisson understands that we will never live in a world where car accidents do not happen, and where people are not needlessly injured or killed as a result of them. As a result, we are committed to fighting for your rights to ensure you rightfully recover damages for your injuries and suffering.

Our Las Vegas accident lawyers started representing injury claims in 1983 and are highly experienced. As we exclusively represent the injured, our legal team has honed its skills in this area of the law. We are prepared to put our talents to good use as we pursue maximum economic and non-economic damages in order to help our clients rebuild their lives.

What Should You Do After An Accident?

After an accident there are important steps you can take to protect a potential injury claim. If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact our team of experienced Las Vegas auto accident attorneys. We have a comprehensive understanding of motor vehicle accident claims and are prepared to assist you with the process.

  • 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.

  • Know Your Coverage: It is imperative for you to review, know, and understand your insurance coverage before speaking with your agent. This information can be found in the Coverage and Exclusion sections of your policy. Consider if any other insurance policies, such as umbrella policies, credit card policies, or homeowner policies cover any damages or injury. Often times, damages will be covered under one or all of these.

  • Put Together Evidence: When attempting to file a claim, it is important to have as much evidence as possible. After the accident occurs, take pictures of the damage to your vehicle and any injuries sustained on your person. Keep copies of any medical reports as further proof of any injuries.
  • Keep Records: Keep all receipts for expenses related to your accident including medical bills, meals, lodging, repairs and other purchases made in connection with pursuing your claim or recovering from your injuries.

  • 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 accident attorney at Bernstein & Poisson can do just that, handling your case so you can focus on healing.
