Understanding the Law and Personal Injuries
With several years of practicing law in the Las Vegas area, personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith have been working hard to provide the highest level of legal representation. We offer both our experience and our knowledge on the following sections of the law.
When we talk about personal injury, what we mean is that you’ve suffered an injury because of someone else’s negligence. If that’s the case, then you have the right to seek monetary compensation and file a lawsuit against the responsible party, be it a person or a business.
According to Nevada state law, every victim of a personal injury has a limit of 2 years to file a lawsuit and claim compensation from the accused. Of course, no one deserves to wait that long in order to get satisfaction from the legal system. That’s why the firm of Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith is ready to take your case and give you the counsel and support you need today.
In the legal profession, there’s a term that we frequently use when we talk about the responsibilities of others: “duty of care.” This standard requires that a property owner—such as a homeowner or business owner—may be responsible for the general health and safety of everyone who legally comes onto the premises.
However, that doesn’t mean people still aren’t subjected to injury-causing negligence
Every landlord, homeowner, business manager, and proprietor is responsible for making sure that their premises are kept safe and clean. They’re responsible under the law for warning their customers, tenants, or visitors about any dangerous spaces or open hazards. And they’re responsible for listening and acting on every complaint by a customer or guest concerning the safety of their property. If they fail in this duty, they may be responsible for and resulting damage and/or injury. Get the help you deserve by talking to one of our attorneys about a premises liability lawsuit.
Chapter 616A.030 of the Nevada Revised Statutes defines an accident in the workplace as “an unexpected or unforeseen event happening suddenly and violently, with or without human fault, and producing at the time objective symptoms of an injury.” What this means is that, if you’ve been injured while on the job, it isn’t necessarily your fault. Consider the place where you work and how safe or clean it’s being kept. Ask yourself if your supervisors or coworkers are really doing their part to comply with state and federal regulations?
At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, we’re dedicated to both your present well-being and your future compensation. You deserve access to immediate medical attention, medical and insurance benefits for you and your family, and a chance at vocational rehabilitation. We’ll work to help you get an examination, care, and work to prevent you from losing any benefits in a case against your employer’s legal team.
