You might wonder what you can expect after making the difficult decision to file a personal injury lawsuit. Many things happen from the time your personal injury lawyer decides to take your case to the conclusion of the trial. A lot of work goes into the preparation of a personal injury trial, so it is important to choose a legal team that you trust to represent your case.
Do you want to work with a dedicated Nevada personal injury attorney that looks out for you and protects your best interests? Reach out to an experienced lawyer today at Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers at (702) 878-2889.
Our team of Nevada personal injury lawyers will handle all aspects of your case, including preparation for, and representation during, the trial. These are just a few things we will do to prepare for your upcoming trial.
Your Attorney Will Collect Evidence
Personal injury claims require that we demonstrate fault. We begin collecting evidence to support the claim that the defendant is directly responsible for your personal injury. This might include:
- Tracking down photographs or videos from the scene of the accident
- Communicating with witnesses who can attest to the events of the accident
- Communicating with expert witnesses, including medical or employment professionals
- Collecting medical records, to demonstrate the severity of the injury
- Collecting earnings and benefits statements to demonstrate a loss, or reduction, of income
- Collecting property damage reports
These documents are important in demonstrating that the other party not only owed you a legal duty of care, but that they acted in a way that was negligent.
Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers Will File All Necessary Paperwork
Filing a personal injury lawsuit with the Nevada court system requires the timely filing of certain paperwork. Nevada law also requires additional paperwork, such as notifying the responsible party of the pending lawsuit. Your personal injury lawyer will manage all paperwork, including sending demand letters, preparing pleadings, conducting discovery, and filing for a trial date.
The state of Nevada sets strict statute of limitations on personal injury filings. We have just two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Failing to meet this due date could mean that you lose out on any compensation that you deserve. Because it takes time to build your case, it is important to reach out to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
A Lawyer Will Determine a Value for Your Case
Before discussing the possibility of negotiations or settlements, it is important to determine the value of your case. The value of your case describes the compensation that you deserve. This is a combination of cost including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages and benefits
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
Personal injury lawyers have the experience and knowledge necessary to come up with an appropriate value for your case. Determining this amount ahead of time can help us prepare for any potential negotiations.
Potential Negotiations Between Parties
Negotiations will likely be a part of your personal injury case. However, communication with the responsible party and their legal team is an important part of the process. Whether we are dealing with an insurance company or other type of representative, your Nevada personal injury attorney will manage all communications on your behalf.
Leaving negotiations to a personal injury lawyer will help you avoid making claims or statements that could hurt your case. Personal injury lawyers are familiar with the tactics commonly used by the defense, ensuring that your rights and needs are fairly represented.
Represent You During Trail
Your personal injury case may or may not go to trial. If we are unable to come to an agreeable negotiation with the defense, then we will discuss your trial options. If you decide to take your case to trial, then we will begin the process. This means filing for a court date and preparing you for trial. Personal injury lawyers are familiar with the proceedings and can guide you on how to respond and what type of questions you might expect during trial.
Get the Personal Injury Representation You Need
A personal injury can be overwhelming by itself. You may not be able to work and you might wonder how you will cover your bills. The thought of building your case and seeking compensation for your injuries doesn’t have to be difficult when you choose the right lawyer. You deserve a personal injury lawyer who will walk you through the entire process, while handling the majority of the work so you can focus on your recovery.
