All too often, people injured in an accident, on another’s property, or in the course of medical procedures and treatment fail to understand their rights as victims and the ways in which they may be eligible to receive compensation. At Shook & Stone, we have heard countless stories of individuals who were injured as the result of another party’s negligence, many of whom felt as if there was nothing they could do and many more who resigned themselves to settling for unfair compensation proposed by large, intimidating corporations and insurance companies.
Our firm wants to put an end to uncompensated and poorly reimbursed victims in the Las Vegas region and surrounding communities. We know that education can play a large role in ensuring that victims and their families know the facts about injuries and accidents and how the personal injury or wrongful death claim process can help them. In an effort to provide our legal insight and genuine support, our experienced attorneys have compiled answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear upon first meeting with clients.
Motor Vehicle Accident FAQ
Road traffic accidents are the leading cause of personal injury incidents and fatalities in America. Many victims injured in an accident caused by another routinely settle for unfair settlements offered by insurance companies whose main priority is to pay as little as possible. Whether you were in a car or truck accident, or if you were injured by a vehicle as a pedestrian, these frequently asked questions can be an indispensable tool in helping you begin your personal injury claim process.
Wrongful Death FAQ
When a death occurs due to another party’s negligence, then relatives and loved ones may be eligible to file wrongful death claims in order to obtain compensation for the emotional and economic damages they suffered. As legal worries can be an additional source of stress during these already unfortunate times, having a clear understanding of the facts and information can help your case run smoothly and swiftly toward a favorable resolution.
Serious Injury FAQ
Serious and catastrophic injuries can place extreme burdens on victims and their families. In these cases, compensation becomes essential to alleviating the many inherent financial burdens that result. Costly medical bills, lost wages and reduced future earnings from the inability to work, and the potential for life-altering changes in a victim’s quality of life can lead to numerous questions.
While we provide these answers to frequently asked questions in order to offer injured victims and their families a starting point for legal procedures involved in personal injury and wrongful death claims, we know that it can still be a complicated process. In addition, we understand that injuries, illnesses, and deaths can be some of the most difficult experiences to endure and that any additional issues can easily overwhelm victims and their loved ones.
