A personal injury accident can happen anywhere in Clark County, at any time. If the negligence of another party caused an accident that left you injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Taking legal action one a way to hold that party accountable and recover compensation for the damages you have suffered as result of the accident.
We know the challenges you’re going through
When you’re injured, everything changes. Your days become an array of diagnostic tests like CT scans, MRIs, and X-rays; medical procedures and surgery; second opinions and new medications; physical therapy and follow-up appointments with specialists. You may not be able to work, take care of your family, or do the things you love. These are all real, debilitating losses that you need fair compensation for in order to move forward.
But recovering compensation can be challenging. The negligent party may deny responsibility, or they may blame another party. You may even be blamed for the accident that left you hurt.
You also can't rely on insurance companies to do the right thing. They are mostly concerned with their bottom line. To keep their profits high, they try to spend as little as possible on resolving claims. They won't hesitate to deny a claim if given the opportunity. And they have teams of lawyers looking out for their best interests.
A passion for justice
That's why you need a personal injury attorney who is dedicated to helping his clients obtain the justice they deserve. Colin knows the obstacles that insurance companies put up in personal injury cases. He also knows how to overcome those obstacles and can help you recover the compensation you need and deserve for your injury.
Colin begins his investigation in every case by meeting with his clients and reviewing the facts. He obtains documents related to the accident - including accident reports, photographs, witness statements, medical records and other documents that are needed to support each claim. He also identifies witnesses and interviews them himself, or sometimes hires a private investigator. If needed, he can also consult with one or more experts and other specialists to support your claim.
All this work allows Colin to build strong cases that insurance companies can't ignore. When insurance companies realize their usual defense tactics won't work, they usually make a settlement offer. But ultimately the decision to accept or reject any settlement offer is up to our clients.
We seek compensation for all the damages our clients have suffered. This may include past and future medical expenses related to your injury. It may also include lost wages if your injury left you unable to return to work. In virtually every personal injury case, Colin also seeks compensation for the client's pain and suffering and emotional distress. There may be additional damages available in some situations, depending on the facts in each case.
