Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyers

In some instances, a negligent person or company deviates from the standard of care by taking some action that a “reasonable person” would not have taken in the same situation. Alternatively, a negligent party might fail to take some action that a “reasonable person” would have taken in the same situation.

In cases where a person or entity acts negligently and causes bodily injury or death, the accident victim or their family could pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party – or the at-fault party’s insurance company. For example, if a negligent driver fails to yield the right-of-way at the appropriate time and causes an accident that leads to injuries, the accident victim could file a personal injury claim with the responsible driver’s motor vehicle insurer.

Do You Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you sustained injuries in any accident resulting from another person’s negligence, no matter how big or small, it is extremely important that you retain skilled legal counsel to represent you in your case as quickly as possible. If you choose to represent yourself, it almost guarantees that the insurance company will refuse to take your case seriously. This is because insurance companies and their adjusters often assume that self-represented individuals lack the necessary legal skills and qualifications to negotiate a favorable settlement let alone litigate their case to a favorable conclusion in the court system.

Protecting the Rights of Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

All drivers have the duty to follow traffic laws and drive reasonably. However, anyone who spends time on Las Vegas roads knows that many drivers ignore this duty and put others in harm’s way. If a speeding, distracted, or otherwise careless driver hits you and causes you injuries in any type of vehicle crash, the legal team of Cloward Trial Lawyers is ready to help.

We handle many types of accident cases, including:


Car accidents.

According to the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), around 66 percent of all fatal crashes in Nevada take place in Las Vegas. More than 300 people die in car crashes in the state, with many more suffering severe injuries. These injuries and deaths have direct and costly effects on the Las Vegas community.


Truck accidents.

Whether someone drives a delivery box truck, a large pickup for business purposes, or any other type of heavy truck, these vehicles can cause serious damage when they collide with a smaller passenger vehicle. People drive trucks for many reasons in Las Vegas, and they might collide with cars, motorcycles, or pedestrians. In two-thirds of cases, injuries and fatalities happen to those who are not in the truck.


18-wheeler accidents.

The National Safety Council reports that seven percent of crashes involve a commercial vehicle. I-15 is a major corridor for commercial trucks that are either delivering goods to Las Vegas residents and businesses or simply passing through to head further west. With all the traffic congestion and confusion on I-15, the addition of large trucks makes it all the more dangerous.


Motorcycle accidents.

The OTS reports that Las Vegas has the highest number of motorcycle crashes in the state, with 70 percent of Nevada’s fatal motorcycle accidents happening in Clark County. Most accidents happen on urban roadways, on the weekends, and during daylight hours. Many motorcyclists who suffered serious injuries or died were wearing helmets at the time.


Drunk driving accidents.

In recent years, the number of alcohol-related fatalities on Nevada roads has sharply increased. Last year, over 58 percent of deadly crashes involved at least one drunk driver. Las Vegas invites residents and tourists alike to feel free to let loose and enjoy themselves, but this should never spill over onto the roads. Drunk drivers should be fully accountable for the harm they cause in Sin City.


Uber accidents.

People use Uber and Lyft constantly throughout Las Vegas, whether it’s because they plan on drinking alcohol, want to avoid driving in traffic, or don’t want to pay for parking. Having transportation at your fingertips is convenient – until you are injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft. Then, you face a long road of navigating a complex web of insurance companies and policies.


Taxi accidents.

As rideshare driver numbers dropped sharply in 2020 and have not fully rebounded, the taxi industry is still constant in Las Vegas. With more than 3,250 cabs in the city’s fleet, it is unavoidable that one of them will be in an accident at some point. If you suffer injuries due to a taxicab driver, getting the compensation you deserve can be a complicated and uphill battle.


Pedestrian accidents.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) ranked Nevada as tenth in the nation for pedestrian fatality rates and studies show that a whopping 90 percent of these accidents happen in Clark County. With thousands of people walking around Las Vegas every day alongside impaired, distracted, or aggressive drivers, the risk to pedestrians is serious.


Bicycle accidents.

Another convenient way to avoid parking fees or high gas prices is to ride your bike around the city. Like pedestrian accidents, the large majority of bike crashes and fatalities – 86 percent – happen in Clark County, according to OTS. The fact is that Las Vegas drivers simply don’t watch closely enough for cyclists.


Boat accidents.

Many people come to the Las Vegas area for its surroundings, including Lake Mead and other waterways. Just like most types of vehicle crashes, recreational boating accidents are on the rise in Clark County and the injuries from boat crashes can be serious or often fatal.

Notable Motor vehicle accidents Verdicts




Bus transportation negligence





Wrongful death


The CDC reports that injuries are a leading cause of death in the United States. After a fatal accident involving your close family member, no amount of money will bring them back. However, seeking compensation through a wrongful death claim can bring you closure, financial support, and a sense of justice.

Dog bite injuries


There are more than 236,000 households in Las Vegas and many of these households have dogs as pets. If a dog suddenly attacks, it can leave you with life-altering injuries. Dog bites can cause permanent disfigurement, often to the face, even after multiple reconstructive surgeries.

Spinal cord injury


Many types of accidents can cause trauma to the spine, which can have devastating effects. Damage to the spinal cord can disrupt functioning and a complete severance of the spinal cord will result in permanent and irreversible paralysis for the rest of your life. Living with a complete spinal injury can cost millions each year.

Brain injury


If you suffer head trauma in an accident, you might sustain a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI). Hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized every year for TBI and many of them experience permanent cognitive, physical, or behavioral impairments.

Justice for Property-Related Injuries

People in Las Vegas spend a lot of time in casinos, whether it’s your local watering hole or a massive complex on The Strip. When you enter a casino, the last thing you expect is to suffer an injury. In fact, casino owners have a strict duty to maintain safe premises to avoid injuries to visitors, even in massive compounds.

Unfortunately, many hazards are allowed to exist in casinos that lead to serious injuries.

You might trip over something and fall, have a swimming pool accident, or even suffer injuries in an assault due to inadequate security. When this happens, and the casino is to blame, you deserve compensation for your injuries.

Thousands of people file accident reports due to casino injuries each year, citing conditions like concussions, soft tissue injuries, fractures, spinal injuries, and more. But many of them fail to hold the casinos accountable for allowing dangerous premises to cause an accident. Anyone injured in a casino needs an aggressive legal team that will not back down. Cloward Trial Lawyers will fight for full financial recovery from casinos and corporations that cause your property-related injuries.

While casinos are a hotbed for slip and falls, these accidents are common in many places around Las Vegas. Whether you are shopping at the Fashion Show Mall, having dinner in The District, or simply picking up groceries at Smith’s, slip and falls are possible.

About one million people visit the ER each year for slip and fall injuries. These injuries can be surprisingly serious and they can result in extensive economic and non-economic losses. When you are a customer and a business is negligent in causing your injuries, that business should be responsible for your medical bills and other damages. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle your injury claim following a slip and fall accident.


Hold Corporations Accountable for Defective and Dangerous Products

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports on millions of product recalls each year. These recalls happen because something on the market is defective or unreasonably dangerous, resulting in serious injuries or death. Manufacturers have a strict duty to design and produce products that are safe. They also have to warn us if a product has certain risks. However, too many companies put dollars over safety and put defective or dangerous products on the market.

Many companies shamelessly fail to care about consumer safety, from pharmaceutical giants to automakers to electronics manufacturers. Whether it’s a smartphone or an infant’s clothing, a defect or failure to warn can result in costly and life-changing injuries or deaths. At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we firmly believe these corporations should be held accountable for lining their pockets at the expense of consumer safety. Not only do we want our injured clients to receive full compensation, but we also want to see these dangerous products off the shelves so no one else has to suffer an injury.

We handle complex product claims, including class actions. Our legal team has the experience and resources to stand up to corporations that cause injuries to people who buy their products. Our goal is justice for your injuries and anyone else harmed by the same product.

Personal Injury Law FAQs

Following an accident that results from someone else’s negligence, many accident victims are unsure of the steps they must take to recover monetary compensation. First, it is important that you go to a local emergency medical facility, such as an urgent care center or hospital emergency room, for medical treatment.

Have a different question?

ask an attorney


Every personal injury claim or lawsuit is different so the amount of time it takes to resolve a case will depend upon the circumstances. Some factors that affect the length of time it takes to resolve a personal injury claim include:

  • The circumstances surrounding the accident which led to the accident victim’s injuries
  • The type of accident that occurred
  • The venue or court where the personal injury case is pending
  • The length of time it takes the accident victim to complete all of their medical treatment
  • Whether the case is able to settle out of court or the parties must litigate their case in the Nevada Court System
  • The insurance company and the settlement adjuster with whom you’re dealing

By retaining a skilled attorney at Cloward Trial Lawyers to represent you, you can rest assured that your personal injury claim or lawsuit will resolve as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Personal injury lawyers do not require payment of upfront fees or expenses. Rather, personal injury lawyers operate solely on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorney does not get to collect a fee unless and until they recover monetary compensation on their client’s behalf. This compensation may come in the form of a monetary settlement from the insurance company – or via a favorable jury verdict or binding arbitration result.

Pursuant to the terms of a contingency fee agreement, the attorney’s fee will be a certain percentage of the total gross monetary recovery in the case. This percentage could range anywhere from 25 to 40 percent of the accident victim’s total recovery.

At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we can answer all of your legal questions about our contingency fee agreement and will only charge you a fee if we win your case and collect monetary compensation on your behalf.

The value of personal injury claims and lawsuits varies. The final damages that an accident victim recovers through settlement, jury verdict, or binding arbitration award depends upon various factors, which may include:

  • The cost of the accident victim’s medical treatment
  • The specific injuries that the accident victim suffered
  • The overall pain and suffering that the accident victim had to endure due to their injuries
  • Whether the accident victim sustained a permanent injury in their accident that is unlikely to get better over time
  • Whether the accident victim had to miss time from work to recover from their injuries – and the amount of time that the accident victim had to miss

Medical expenses are typically paid out of the total gross recovery that an accident victim receives at the end of their claim or lawsuit. Therefore a “good” settlement offer should compensate an accident victim for all of their related medical expenses, including initial hospital visits, doctor appointments, medical procedures, and physical therapy costs. Moreover, an effective settlement should compensate an accident victim for any anticipated medical treatment that they may need to undergo in the future due to the accident.

At Cloward Trial Lawyers, we can help you begin the process by filing a personal injury claim on your behalf with the appropriate insurance company. In most instances, we can file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer. We do this by submitting copies of your medical records, medical bills, police reports, witness statements, lost wage documents from your employer, and other relevant documents to the insurance company adjuster for their review. We can then negotiate with the adjuster and work to pursue a favorable settlement offer on your behalf.
