Car Accident Cases

Car accidents in Las Vegas occur frequently, but each inflicts unique harm on its victims. Every day throughout Las Vegas, car crashes cause injuries that force drivers and passengers to contend with trauma, life disruption, and financial strain—difficulties made all the more burdensome when someone else’s wrongful actions caused them.

If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a Las Vegas car accident, you may claim monetary damages from the parties at fault and their insurers. The experienced Las Vegas car accident attorneys at Steven Parke want to help you understand your rights and explore your options. Contact us today to learn more.

Car Accidents Take a Heavy Toll in Las Vegas

Tens of thousands of car accidents happen in Las Vegas annually, according to Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) data. Dozens of people die and thousands more sustain injuries in those crashes, causing untold physical, emotional, and financial pain.

The data also show that most car accidents in Las Vegas are preventable.

They happen because of poor decisions and dangerous actions like:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drug-impaired driving
  • Speeding and aggressive driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Ignoring traffic signs, signals, and lane markings
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Failing to maintain reasonably safe roads
  • Manufacturing and selling defective cars and car parts

At Steven Parke and Associates, we’ve seen firsthand the devastation car accidents can cause for individuals, families, and communities throughout Las Vegas. We fight to hold at-fault parties and insurance companies accountable for that harm so our clients can pay their expenses and return to living their lives.

Compensation for a Las Vegas Car Accident

Nevada law generally entitles you to seek compensation when someone’s wrongful actions cause a car accident that leaves you injured. At Steven Parke, we work hard to identify all parties at fault for a Las Vegas crash that harmed our client and to analyze the insurance coverage available to pay our clients’ damages.

Who Owes You Money For Your Car Accident Injuries?

A wide range of parties and insurance companies could have a legal obligation to pay for the harm you suffered in a Las Vegas car accident. The skilled car accident lawyers at Steven Parke dig into the facts of every car accident case we handle so our clients can benefit from every potential source of compensation available.

No two car accidents are identical.

But our team may determine that one or more of the following parties owes damages to our injured client:

  • Negligent drivers who cause crashes and their auto liability insurance carriers
  • Employers of negligent drivers who crash work vehicles, and their liability coverage
  • Workers’ compensation insurance companies, if our client crashed while driving a work vehicle
  • Automotive manufacturers who produce defective cars or car parts
  • Social hosts who serve alcohol to an underage drunk driver who causes an accident
  • Government agencies and contractors who fail to maintain reasonably safe streets for driving

These are merely examples, however. Steven Parke & Associates understand that your Las Vegas car accident was a unique occurrence requiring an experienced lawyer’s careful examination. We never treat car accident cases as cookie-cutter matters. Our focus is always on the facts of your crash and the parties who should face accountability for your injuries.

Who Owes You Money For Your Car Accident Injuries?

Under Nevada law, you generally have the right to demand compensation from at-fault parties and insurance companies for every harm you suffered in a Las Vegas car crash. Many car accident victims who seek our counsel at Steven Parke & Associates are surprised to learn about the wide range of damages they can claim.

Car Accident Injury Damages

Every case differs, as we’ve said.

But our team can usually pursue compensation for our injured clients’:

  • Past and future medical expenses related to treating car accident injuries and resulting health complications
  • Past and future out-of-pocket expenditures for replacement services, mobility equipment, and other goods and services necessary for living with a car accident injury
  • Costs of repairing or replacing a damaged car or other personal property
  • Past lost earnings due to missing work with a car accident injury
  • The value of paid time off used while out of work
  • Future lost earnings, if our client can’t return to work in their previous capacity or can’t pursue their chosen occupation
  • Physical pain and discomfort caused by an injury or medical treatments
  • Emotional suffering and mental health disturbances like anxiety, depression, or PTSD
  • Daily inconvenience and disruption
  • Diminished quality of life and personal or intimate relationships
  • Scarring and disfigurement

At Steven Parke & Associates, we work diligently to assess our client’s injuries and to understand their impact on our client’s life. We aim to get you money that fully compensates you for all harm you have suffered.

Car Accident Wrongful Death Damages

In the tragic case of a fatal Las Vegas car accident, our team can often pursue damages on behalf of the deceased victim’s loved ones and legal estate.

Those wrongful death damages can include compensation for:

  • Loss of the victim’s income and financial support
  • Loss of the victim’s companionship, guidance, society, or consortium
  • The victim’s pain and suffering
  • A surviving spouse’s or family member’s pain and suffering
  • The victim’s medical and accident-related expenses before death
  • Funeral and burial expenses

The Steven Parke & Associates team recognizes that a damages award can never make up for a tragic and preventable loss of life. But the financial support we can secure for our clients often goes a long way in assisting them in paying expenses and rebuilding their lives in a meaningful way.

Punitive or Exemplary Car Accident Damages

In some cases, an attorney at Steven Parke & Associates can convince a Las Vegas judge or jury to award punitive or exemplary damages to our injured client. Those damages punish an at-fault party for extreme or intentionally harmful misconduct. Contact our team today to learn about the potential types and ranges of damages you might claim in your Las Vegas car accident case.

Tips for Las Vegas Car Accident Victims

We encourage you to contact us at Steven Parke & Associates today for your free Las Vegas car accident case consultation. But until we have a chance to connect, following these tips may help to protect your rights.

Seek Promt Medical Attention

Always go to the doctor after getting into a Las Vegas car accident, even if you feel ok. And never wait for aches and pains to worsen before seeking care. Some severe injuries may not show immediate symptoms. Delaying a visit to the emergency room, urgent care center, or your family doctor could put your health or your life at serious risk.

Plus, by seeking care, you can also safeguard your rights to compensation. A doctor visit generates medical records, which can help prove your claim for damages. Going to the doctor also protects you against charges by insurance companies or defense lawyers that you made your condition worse by not taking care of yourself.

DON’T AGREE TO SETTLE WITHOUT CONSULTING A LAWYER FIRST

The at-fault party’s defense lawyer or insurance company may contact you directly to offer you a settlement of your Las Vegas car accident claim. Do not agree to their proposal, and do not sign anything they send you. Quick settlement offers like these seldom compensate you for your damages. If you accept them, you could sacrifice your valuable rights and end up not having enough money to pay your bills and recover your health.

Say no thanks to quick settlement offers and leave the negotiation of your claim settlement to an experienced car accident attorney. Steven Parke & Associates can almost always get car accident victims far more from insurance companies and at-fault parties than what they initially offered as a quick settlement.
