Some drivers have little or no respect for the rules of the road, other people’s safety, or their own. 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 can cause severe 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 when one of their drivers causes an accident, but they want to pay as little as possible. This is true even if their client’s actions caused severe injuries, property damage, or fatalities.
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, such as:
The clock starts ticking once the other party’s insurance company finds out about the accident. They want to reach an agreement and minimize 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. Most 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 at the negotiating table and how to build a strong case for you.
We will begin preparing for court if we can’t reach a settlement agreement. We strive to get you the financial relief you deserve while minimizing your legal fees and allowing you to move on from the accident as quickly as possible.
In addition to a civil claim, you may be able to press criminal charges against the reckless driver. The outcome of a civil lawsuit won’t impact that of a criminal case and vice versa. While the reckless driver could face criminal penalties such as jail time for their conduct, a civil claim can help you recover compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
Some forms of reckless driving are easy to spot, while others aren’t immediately obvious. An accident caused by a reckless driver might be unavoidable in some cases, but recognizing the signs of a dangerous driver and driving defensively could help you escape serious injury.
