What to Expect During Your Personal Injury Case

If you’ve been injured, you may not realize it, but the clock on your case is already ticking.

You need an attorney who knows personal injury law inside and out and knows the tricks other attorneys and insurance companies play.

You need a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney. Douglas Crawford Law can help you.


Las Vegas Personal Injury Case Timeline

You may be one of those people who think you can handle a settlement yourself. Don’t. Perhaps you’re in a rush for cash. Impatience is normal—trust me, I suffer from it, too. But representing yourself is not a wise choice. Insurance companies are businesses, pursuing profit, and they are professionals in managing claims. Unless you are, too, the fee I will charge for your final settlement will almost always lead to a larger check than you could negotiate for yourself.

This is important: the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) Chapter 41 have time frames to file claims and limitations on damages for certain injuries. I know this law inside and out. If you wait too long, we may miss our opportunity to file. Don’t let that happen.

When you decide to enter into a personal injury case, many things need to happen. Several things are required to begin moving your case forward: police reports, photographic evidence, testimony from you and other people involved and potential witnesses, consideration of the severity of the accident, general and special damages, and medical issues like possible limitations to your ability to manage your life physically and emotionally.

Remember what I said above: insurance companies are businesses. They have the means to drag on settlement proceedings when you may not. Most people need the steady income from a job from week to week—a break of a few weeks to a few months can mean financial hardship on even the most responsible family. Some cases can be settled in as little as two weeks, but more complex cases will take more time. We will get you the fairest settlement available by law.

Some injuries from accidents are worse than others. Some may not show up immediately and may manifest themselves later. This is another good reason not to rush into a settlement: to make sure there are no ailments that have been undetected right away. We also do not need to hold off on necessary medical procedures before working toward a settlement—if you’re injured, and you need surgery to fix something, we can get the medical work done and add those payments into the final agreement. 

Your long-term health should not suffer just because of a desire for a quick settlement. This is another great reason you need to hire an attorney—accepting a fast settlement on your own will make it very difficult to get justice down the road if more medical issues show up, which they sometimes do.

However long your case takes, I promise it will get my full attention and we will get you the biggest reward we can by law. It may take a little time and patience, which is hard when you’re hurting, I know, but the wait will be worth it.
