Las Vegas Gridlock Can Lead to Negligent Drivers

by | Jul 14, 2017 | Firm News


The Las Vegas personal injury lawyers at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright know there are few cities in the nation with the traffic gridlock of Las Vegas, as they deal with traffic accident injury cases on a daily basis. Of course, accidents that occur in gridlocked traffic can be very complicated, especially when multiple vehicles are involved, because every driver and their insurance company will have a competing version of events in an effort to reduce their comparative negligence percentage when the case is being settled. The negligence laws in Nevada require any injured driver who is pursuing damage recovery for medical bills resulting from a car accident to have a comparative fault rating that is less than the respondent party, which means that accidents occurring during gridlocked traffic hours can be very contentious when being settled.

What Your Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney Can Do

Once you retain legal representation from Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright, your attorney can immediately begin a full investigation into the actual case facts in the crash, including questioning accident reconstruction specialists and attending police officers. Accidents that occur at a high rate of speed, which is common in gridlock crashes on the open highway, can result in extensive damage and drivers will often give differing statements to police officials. Your attorney can also inspect other vehicles involved, along with evaluating the accident report regarding illegal activity by any drivers. This can be very important when the case is being negotiated with insurance companies.

Dealing with the Insurance Companies

Insurance company claims adjusters are trained professionals who are always looking to control a claim from the very beginning, especially regarding the fault level of their client. Your Las Vegas personal injury attorney is a trained negotiator who knows what to expect from the insurance companies that many times act in bad faith when they think a claimant will not retain legal counsel.

Never let a bad faith insurance company deny your right to personal injury recovery following a gridlock accident in Las Vegas. Always contact the professionals at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright for a full free evaluation of your injury claim potential.
