motorcycle accidentIf you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident it is a wise decision to consult with Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright. There are are several reasons for this advice. Number one is that at the time of an accident, the parties are typically concerned with their physical well-being and the condition of their vehicles. Once the initial shock wears off, however, there are often more questions than answers. This is where the attorney plays a vital role.

The Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright are trained to handle the day to day negotiations with insurance carriers, medical offices and defense counsel. A plaintiff should focus on their recovery solely since recovery is a full-time undertaking. Injured plaintiffs typically suffer serious, severe and sometimes permanent personal injuries that require 3-4 days of chiropractic care and physical therapy at the outset of any personal injury case.

Consulting with and retaining an attorney immediately will relieve the plaintiff of the burden of filing insurance claims, negotiating with medical professionals, dealing with insurance adjusters and/or defense attorneys. The plaintiff’s attorney is set up with the staff to deal with the telephone calls and incoming mail that is inevitable at the outset of a personal injury case. The plaintiff is simply not in the metal frame of mind to deal with insurance adjusters and medical billing offices when they are trying to simply return to some semblance of their normal life.

The role of the personal injury plaintiff’s attorney is to offer a steady hand at a time when a plaintiff has experienced a traumatic injury. Many plaintiffs are unable to return to their activities of daily living at the outset of a personal injury case. The reason for this is because they have sustained injuries to their neck and back which prevent them from sleeping, lifting, bending, carrying, shopping, gardening etc. Fielding phone calls from insurance carriers while trying to locate claim numbers and medical billing information is a daunting task for a person who has not been injured, much less for someone who is suffering from possibly permanent personal injuries.’

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, contact the Las Vegas personal injury attorneys at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright today to schedule a consultation so your rights and remedies may be explained to you in full detail and so you may begin on the road to recovery and realizing a maximum settlement to compensate you for the injuries you have sustained.
