They have been extremely honest, trustworthy, they gave me a lot of security. This has been my first experience in a crash but both the person who recommended them to me and they themselves gave me that confidence of knowing that everything would be fine and it was.

What is My Car Accident Case Worth?

This largely depends on the conditions of your accident. Your case can be worth anywhere from a few thousand to millions of dollars depending on those involved, the circumstances, how badly you were injured, how long your medical conditions will persist, and more. Talking with an experienced car accident attorney is the best way to determine what your case might be worth. Contact us for free case evaluation and settlement estimate.

Nevada law follows the rule of “shared fault” or “comparative negligence” in personal injury claims. This means that if you are partially to blame for causing the car accident, the damages in your claim are reduced based on your level of contribution.

For example, if you file an insurance claim for $10,000 and a court finds that you are 40 percent responsible for causing the accident, you can only recover $6,000. However, if the court finds your actions to have been 50 percent or more responsible for the accident, you are automatically barred from being able to seek compensation.

Maximum Compensation for Car Accident Victims

Compensatory damages are the most common damages awarded in personal injury law. They are generally broken into economic and non-economic damages. With a trusted lawyer, you may be able to maximize your compensation to quantify the actual loss caused by a vehicle accident and be protected from owing money for future related medical care.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Las Vegas

About Our Car Accident Attorneys

Henness & Haight’s car accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in settlements & verdicts in over two decades of serving clients in Las Vegas. We build logical, factual arguments to debunk the false claims of car insurance companies and demonstrate to insurance adjusters or juries why our clients deserve fair compensation. Our commitment to our client’s case is so strong that Mark’s motto is: “Insurance companies can choose to pay, or we’ll make them pay.”

Partner Michael D. Haight

As a previous defense attorney, co-founder Michael D. Haight has valuable insight into the tactics used by insurance companies when handling insurance claims after automobile accidents.

He has since been nationally recognized as a “Top 100 Litigation Lawyer” by the American Society of Legal Advocates and a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer” by The National Trial Lawyers organization. He has also been awarded an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest possible rating in terms of both legal ability and ethical standards.

Partner Mark G. Henness

Mark G. Henness has been an attorney for 29 years. His entire career is devoted to standing beside his clients and holding insurance companies accountable for their losses and suffering. Mark has expertise in all car crash injury cases, including injury causation analysis, biomechanical trauma, and human anatomy. His peers often joke that Mark knows as much about the physics, science, and human anatomy surrounding car crash injuries as the doctors who care for Mark’s clients.

Mark’s expertise is invaluable in personal injury cases because insurance companies go to great lengths to deny fair compensation. They often use junk science or untruths to protect themselves from being held liable.

Similarly, a motorcycle operator must follow the same traffic laws as other motorists and wear standard safety equipment that provides adequate protection in an accident. Suppose a motorcycle operator neglects to ride or operate their vehicle safely. In that case, our Las Vegas motorcycle accident attorneys can also assist you in determining liability for the accident.

Our Las Vegas auto accident attorneys can help you obtain evidence that proves the other driver was at fault and should be held liable for your damages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a car accident attorney in Las Vegas?2024-05-22T10:36:46-07:00

Having an advocate by your side from the beginning ensures your car accident claim is handled correctly and thoroughly. We handle any complications that arise, investigate and gather all evidence needed to build a robust case on your behalf, directly communicate with any insurance companies involved, and fight for the best settlement on your behalf. You can avoid complications and the stress of submitting claims while trying to recover and receive the best outcome possible. No matter the cause of your car accident, our Las Vegas car accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim and fight for the compensation you deserve.

What injuries are often associated with car accidents?2024-05-10T11:08:02-07:00

Some of the most common injuries often associated with car accidents include:

  • Brain injury
  • Head damage
  • Neck damage
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Death

As a personal injury law firm, we have developed strong ties to the Las Vegas, Nevada medical community. We can connect you with the health practitioners needed to treat your injuries or discover any hidden conditions.

Seeking medical attention is essential after any serious car crash and can provide you with an accurate assessment of the actual damages you or your loved one have incurred. Any medical records will also provide documented evidence of any injuries sustained due to the accident.

How long will my car accident case take?2022-02-24T10:27:34-08:00

The time it will take for your case to resolve can vary depending on several factors such as:

(1) How long your medical treatment lasts;

(2) If the case has to go to court; and,

(3) What insurance company we are dealing with, among others.

 

We will never rush you through the treatment process because we want you to have every opportunity to obtain a full recovery from your injuries before we start negotiating with the insurance company. However, as a general rule, it typically takes anywhere from 3-5 months after your treatment ends to obtain a fair settlement.  But stopping your treatment too soon is a massive mistake because this would negatively affect both your long-term health and the value of your case.

How much is my car accident case worth?2022-02-24T10:29:02-08:00

While putting a value on a case is never an exact science, our experience has shown five key factors to consider when assessing case value. These are the:

(1) Amount of your medical bills;

(2) Severity and duration of your pain and suffering;

(3) Amount of any wage loss;

(4) Amount of your out-of-pocket expenses; and,

(5) Likelihood of future pain, suffering, or medical expenses.

 

We won’t know the extent of these five factors when you are first injured.  As your case moves forward, we will gather all of the evidence needed to prove the extent of these five categories of damages. For example, generally speaking, the longer you treat and the higher your medical bills, the more your case is worth.

What if I need recommendations for doctors?2022-02-24T10:54:19-08:00

We are happy to refer you to excellent doctors and specialists who can help you recover more quickly from your injuries and who can better document your pain and suffering. You need to know that not all doctors are equipped or even want to handle personal injury cases following a car accident. In fact, many “family doctors” will flat out refuse to see you if you have been involved in a personal injury-type case.

Consequently, we often help our clients find medical professionals to fit their treatment needs. Over the years, we have vetted and established relationships with many qualified medical professionals and specialists adept at helping our personal injury clients.

How long will my medical treatment last?2022-02-24T10:55:02-08:00

We encourage you to take full advantage of your treatment options and continue treating your injuries until you obtain a full recovery. Ideally, your medical treatment should last until you are just as healthy as before your car accident happened. Never rush the treatment process! Doing so will detriment your health and the value of your case. Insurance companies always assume you have fully recovered when you stop getting medical treatment.

Should I tell my doctors my injuries are from a car accident?2022-02-24T10:32:51-08:00

Yes! Please remember to always tell EVERY medical provider you see, even for non-accident-related care, about all of your physical injuries, symptoms, and complaints from head to toe you believe may have been caused by the auto accident. This is important because insurance companies and their lawyers will obtain copies of ALL of your medical records, including non-accident-related care. They will try to use the absence of any reference to the accident or your symptoms in these unrelated medical records to discredit you. Unfortunately, this tactic can be highly effective.

Do I need to tell my doctors about any prior injuries?2022-02-24T10:56:04-08:00

Yes. Always be open and honest with your car accident lawyer and with your doctors about all prior injuries. It is better if your doctors know all about any prior injuries so they can be prepared to address them adequately. Our law office will do the same thing in our negotiations with the insurance company. For instance, prior injuries to a person’s neck or back can make them more susceptible to future injuries.

However, be certain to tell your doctors if any prior injuries were made WORSE because of your car accident. For example, “I had mild back pain before the car wreck, but now my back pain is major.” Also, try to differentiate your present pain symptoms from any you may have had in the past. For example, “I had intermittent dull back pain prior, and now my back pain is sharp and constant.” Or, “I had a prior accident that caused me neck pain, but after this car accident, I now also have low back pain.”

Should I talk to insurance companies about my car accident if they call?2022-02-24T10:35:25-08:00

No! Do not talk to any insurance companies, even your own, unless getting prior approval from your car accident attorney.
