Experienced Car Accident Attorneys in Las Vegas
Whether driving to work, going to the store for groceries, taking children to school, or driving to a casino or other tourist attraction in Las Vegas, dealing with traffic and driving hazards is a daily necessity for most of us. Unfortunately, the roads and highways in our area are particularly dangerous due to the high number of out-of-town visitors that come here for both work and pleasure.
If you or a family member were hurt in an auto collision caused by a negligent driver, our dedicated and compassionate Las Vegas car accident lawyers are here to fight for the justice and compensation you deserve. We gladly represent both residents of Las Vegas, as well as out-of-town guests.
Types of Car Accident Cases Our Experienced Las Vegas Attorneys Handle
Some of the many types of car accidents our accident lawyers in Henderson handle at Jones Wilson include:
Distracted driving is an extremely dangerous practice that takes a driver’s eyes and minds off their driving. Talking on a cellphone, texting, reading a GPS, taking care of personal grooming, and eating and drinking are a few of the distractions that cause accidents.
Driving when drunk or drugged reduces reaction time, judgment, vision, and other crucial driving skills. This can cause a driver to engage in reckless behaviors—such as speeding, making unsafe lane changes, or driving the wrong way on a highway or street—that cause a tragic, preventable wreck.
Given the fast pace of most people’s lives, many motorists drive when they are too tired to do so safely. Unfortunately, drowsy driving is as dangerous in many of the same ways as drunk driving.
Driving at an excessive speed, tailgating another driver, engaging in aggressive driving, and changing lanes when it is unsafe are common types of reckless driving behaviors that result in devastating car accidents.
Not Driving for Weather Conditions
Fog, rain, and ice can make roads and highways treacherous in Henderson. When drivers fail to reduce their speed, an accident—sometimes a multi-vehicle pile-up—can occur.
Not all crashes are caused by negligent driving. In some cases, a motor vehicle defect can cause the auto to malfunction and the driver to lose control of it. If this is the cause of the collision, a victim may have a product liability claim against the car and parts manufacturers.
Car Accident Injuries Are Often Catastrophic and Permanent
Depending on the severity of an accident, injuries can range from the minor to the traumatic and life-altering. We feel that regardless of how injured you are, you deserve financial compensation for all necessary medical treatment and the best legal representation available.
Medical care can be very expensive, especially if your injuries are severe. That’s why we pride ourselves on fighting to get you the full compensation you deserve instead of the lowball settlement the insurance company will offer to cover a portion of your treatment.
Common Injuries You or a Family Member Could Suffer Include:
- Lacerations, fractures, and broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal injuries and paralysis
- Back and neck injuries
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
Types of Car Collision Cases We Handle

Leading Reasons Negligent Drivers Cause Car Accidents in Las Vegas
Five Reasons Retaining a LAs Vegas Car Accident Attorney Is Important
Many victims of car accidents are out-of-state residents. However, whether you are a resident of Las Vegas, or you’re just visiting, you need a skilled local attorney to represent you if you want to receive all that you are entitled to in your settlement as they would understand the law here better than an attorney out-of-state.
At Jones Wilson Injury Lawyers, our car accident attorneys live and work in Las Vegas, which makes us even more committed to obtaining justice for our local clients. We also help many out-of-town visitors and understand the unique stresses a car accident can cause when you’re hurt in a strange town. Here are five ways that hiring a local lawyer from our firm can help you:
Understanding of The Law
Our attorneys practice in Las Vegas courts and understand the Nevada laws that apply to your accident and the local court procedures you must follow. We know what you need to establish in order to prove the other driver’s negligence and the compensation you should receive for your injuries.
Negotiating Your Settlement
We have extensive experience negotiating with local insurance companies and understand the unfair negotiating tactics they may employ to try to deny your claim or get you to accept a settlement that is far less than you should receive.
Investigating Your Crash
Because we live and work in the community, we will be able to visit your accident scene and conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your collision. In addition, we can collect the evidence you need and hire qualified expert witnesses, if necessary, so that you receive the maximum recovery in your settlement.
Filing Your Lawsuit
Only an attorney licensed in Nevada can file your lawsuit if you are unable to settle your claim. Our lawyers know the deadline—referred to as the statute of limitations—to file your complaint and are committed to taking your case to trial if the insurance company will not offer you what you deserve.
Valuing Your Claim
Our legal team has helped many auto accident victims successfully settle their claims with the negligent drivers’ insurance companies. We can accurately value your claim so that you do not accept a settlement offer that does not fully compensate you.
