If you are injured in Las Vegas, you need protection and guidance by injury attorneys you can trust. Our personal injury lawyers only represent injured victims, never defendants. There is NO FEE for our services unless we recover money from the responsible parties. The lawyers at Cogburn Law Offices operate under a contingency fee, meaning that you pay only if they recover.
Whether you were injured in a car crash, on a slippery floor, by a healthcare provider or by a dangerous dog, our team of attorneys, paralegals, investigators and experts can give you the space to heal while we fight the insurance company and defendants. Since 2005 we have represented those injured by the negligence of another. When someone hurts you because they were careless, it was not an “accident” and you are entitled to recover for your injuries.
There are many types of personal injuries. Among the most common are motor vehicle crashes (including truck, motorcycle, car, ATV), medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect and dog bites. Increasingly guests are injured at a business that fails to provide adequate security (known as negligent security).
Compensation varies from case to case, but may include loss of current and future wages, medical costs, pain, and suffering.
After your free consultation with one of our attorneys, here’s what to expect if we take your case:
We can refer you to excellent doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors to increase the likelihood of a full recovery. If you need a mechanic, we know many good ones in Las Vegas, Henderson and throughout Clark County. Once we have your medical records, we will negotiate with the insurance company. If we can persuade them to make a reasonable offer that compensates you for your personal injuries and property damage, nothing more may be needed. However, should the insurance company be unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement, we are prepared to go to trial.
Legal documents that include your complaint and the defendant's response. The filing of your complaint with the court initiates the case.
Where a judge or jury decides if the defendant is responsible for your injuries. One of our attorneys will represent you throughout the trial, using what he or she learned from fact gathering and discovery to present a case to the court.
The process of gathering information from the other party. This include depositions, interrogatories and requests to admit facts.
A complicated process as there are times when the defendant cannot or will not pay. One of our attorneys will help you through such a circumstance, should it arise.
Requests lawyers file with the court to obtain a ruling on a particular matter. Your attorney may file a motion that will end the dispute before trial.
A review of the decision by an appellate court. Appeals do not require the parties to be present. One of our injury attorneys would do everything required to file or defend an appeal, if one is necessary.
A negotiated settlement that may resolve the case before trial. Your attorney will advise you as to whether it is best to accept a settlement or continue to trial.
