    Do I need a lawyer?

    There is no requirement for having a lawyer if you are filing a claim for compensation after a crash.

He will determine the true amount of damages you've suffered and build a strong case the insurance company simply can't ignore.

    Should I notify my insurance company?

    Yes. You are required to report the accident to your insurance company in Nevada. But stick to the facts. Simply inform them you were involved in an accident and share the information you have about the other driver. Don't make any statements about who was at fault or accept responsibility. If you are contacted by the other driver's insurance company, don't answer any questions. They are trying to get you to say something that makes it seem like you were to blame. Tell them you would like to get some legal advice first, then contact an attorney.

    I don't feel hurt. Do I need to get medical attention?

    Going to the hospital for a medical exam may be the last thing you want to do after a crash, but we strongly advise you to do so. This is very important for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that you may be hurt and not realize it. For example, you may have life-threatening internal injuries or may have suffered a concussion. The second reason is a medical professional can document any injuries you did suffer. Without this documentation, an insurance company may question whether you were hurt at all in your accident.

    What can I do if the other driver denies responsibility?

    It's fairly common for at-fault drivers to deny responsibility for an accident. The other driver's insurance company may even try to suggest that you were to blame for what happened. That's why we conduct our own investigation of your crash. We'll review police reports, medical records and other related documents. We'll identify and interview witnesses to the crash. If needed, we will consult experts. We know where to look for evidence that the other driver's negligence led to the crash that left you hurt. Then we fight to hold that driver accountable.

    What is the value of my case?

    We can only answer that question after reviewing the details of your case. The value of your claim will depend on many different factors. We will find out what really happened and determine how the accident has affected your life. For example, in addition to the medical expenses for treating your injuries after the crash, you may need other treatment for your injuries in the future. You may have lost income because your injury kept you from working. There are also other damages that can be suffered after an accident, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. We can review you case when you come in for a free consultation.

    How long will my car accident case take to resolve?

    There's no simple answer to this question, as each case is different. Simpler cases may be resolved within a matter of months. But more complex cases can take years to resolve. We are always focused on getting you the maximum financial compensation we can. And we always build a strong case to fight the insurance companies. Many times, we are able to negotiate a settlement that works for you. But if the insurance company insists on going to court, we're always ready in that instance. Al Lasso is an experienced litigator who has won many substantial verdicts for clients.
