You Need a Reckless Driving Attorney After a Car Crash

Some drivers have little or no respect for the rules of the road, other people’s safety, and even their own safety. As you travel around the Las Vegas or Henderson areas, you’re likely to see drivers whipping in and out of traffic lanes, racing through yellow or red lights, and driving dangerously close to other vehicles.

In many situations, these actions don’t just frighten and intimidate other drivers—they actually cause every or even fatal accidents. When this happens, it is crucial to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Insurance companies are quick to try to cover for their at-fault drivers. They know they have to pay out when one of their drivers causes an accident, but they want to pay out as little as possible. This is true even if their client’s actions caused serious injuries, property damage, or fatalities.

Your attorney can help you make a game plan after you’ve been involved in a car accident caused by speeding. The long-term effects of an accident often require expert medical care and analysis. When you work with Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers, we will help you explore different types of damages that may be available to you:

  • Medical bills and other healthcare expenses: In crashes caused by reckless driving, medical bills are often extremely high. You may need help paying for ambulance fees, hospitals stays, surgical expenses, and other types of medical treatment. If your injury is particularly severe or long-term, you may also need money for lifelong care future treatments for injuries.
  • Lost income and future wages: Road rage cases can leave you unable to work or require you to switch career paths, leaving you with less income over the course of your life. With a personal injury lawsuit, we may be able to ask for money to cover time away from work and long-term changes in earnings.
  • Pain and suffering: Serious car accidents can leave victims with long-term or even lifelong pain. You may notice an overall decrease in your quality of life and an inability to enjoy activities you once looked forward to. Psychologically, the accident may even leave you unable to drive without serious fear and anxiety. If it’s appropriate, we will include pain and suffering in our negotiations with the insurance company or legal team.

Time is of the essence when you are injured in a car crash. Once the other party’s insurance company finds out about the accident, the clock starts ticking. They want to reach an agreement and they want to do so in a way that minimizes their payout. The sooner you secure legal representation, the easier it is for you to focus on healing while your reckless driving attorney negotiates on your behalf.

A personal injury case can go several different directions. The majority of personal injury cases never go to court. The involved parties reach an agreement that prevents the victim from suing while securing a fair settlement amount. At Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers, we have negotiated with many insurance companies throughout our careers. We know what to expect from the other side when we sit down at the negotiating table and how to build a strong case for you. Ideally, the other side will realize that their client was reckless and agree on a fair settlement. If not, we will begin preparing for court. We strive to get you the settlement you deserve while minimizing your legal fees and allowing you to move on from the accident as quickly as possible.
