Lawyer Representation for Las Vegas Car Accident Injury
Car Accident Attorney Rodney K Okano represents people injured by the negligence of others. Since 2001, Mr. Okano has successfully obtained financial recoveries for his clients to compensate for medical bills, damage to vehicle, loss of wages, pain and suffering and future medical expenses. We can arrange for medical treatment, take the burden of communicating with the insurance company to get your vehicle repaired or replaced, gather crucial evidence and pursue your claim to obtain the maximum recovery for you.
Yes. Nevada law entitles an injured party to be made whole through financial compensation from the at-fault party. The injured party bears the burden of proof to demonstrate that the other party was negligent or at fault, that such negligence caused injury, and prove the amount of money required to compensate for such injury.
Mr. Okano has been successful in proving all of the elements of an injury claim in hundreds of cases. From the first day of representation, Mr. Okano will gather evidence in your case, monitor your medical treatment and expenses, prove your case, and obtain fair legal compensation for you. It is our job to provide you with excellent customer service and to obtain the maximum financial recovery for your injuries. The Law Office of Rodney K Okano will evaluate the strengths of your injury claim in a free initial consultation.
The value of your personal injury claim is based on the nature of your injuries. The greater the injury, the greater the value of the claim. Monetary compensation for your injury is based on the legal theory that a negligent party must pay for the damages caused by his negligence. Medical expenses. All medical expenses that are necessitated by injuries sustained in the accident are recoverable. In order to be compensable, the type and length of the medical treatment must be necessary and reasonable, and the charges for such service need to be customary for the community. Also, the need for future medical expenses may be recovered based on the evidence.
Pain and Suffering. Bodily injuries will cause a person to endure pain and suffering. Neck and Back pain, Spinal Injury, Head Injury, Broken Bones, temporary or permanent loss of use of a body part and/or a regular activity, and others, are all examples of injuries that cause pain and suffering. There is no precise formula to determine the amount of compensation for pain and suffering, but rather it is based the evidence of the injuries and how these injuries has impacted your life.
Loss Earnings. Injuries that cause you to lose time from work or your business, or require you to use your sick time or vacation time are recoverable from the at-fault party.
For the intentional wrong doer, not only will he be held to pay for the actual damages caused, but may also be liable for punitive damages. Punitive damages are in addition to actual and are designed to punish the wrong doer.
One should never take a motor vehicle accident lightly. One can be significantly injured, but not feel the symptoms until days after. The Law Office of Rodney K Okano handles all car accident injury cases from simple neck and back strain to catastrophic disabling injuries, including death. If a new client has not had any medical attention since the accident, we will quickly recommend and even arrange for immediate medical attention.
Even if you do not have health insurance, the Law Office of Rodney K Okano can assist you obtaining medical treatment for your accident injuries with no payment required at the time of treatment.
Life threatening and disabling injuries are medically treated at the scene and hospital regardless of whether the injured person has health insurance. Likewise, the initial medical evaluation and treatment at the hospital for people transported by ambulance are treated regardless of health insurance. However, sometime later, after your hospital visit, you will receive a bill. Probably a very large bill for the ambulance, the emergency room visit, x-rays, medication and physician visit. You are entitled to recover all of this money from the at-fault party.
After you are discharged from the hospital you are probably going to require follow up medical treatment. The Law Office of Rodney K Okano can assist you in obtaining initial and follow-up medical treatment even if you do not have health insurance. If we accept your case, we will work with Las Vegas doctors and other medical providers to make sure that you receive the best medical attention.
Yes. Use your health insurance for all of your emergency and initial medical services. Using your health insurance is a way to limit your responsibility for the payment of medical services. This includes ambulance services, hospital, and prescriptions.
However, after your emergency medical services, you may elect not to use your health insurance. It may be because the medical provider that you want to see after the hospital may not accept your health insurance. Or using your health insurance may result in unaffordable co-payments. In such a case, the Law Office of Rodney K Okano may advise you on your options in obtaining future medical attention.
Yes, in almost all cases, you will not be fairly compensated for your bodily injuries without the assistance of a competent personal injury attorney. Automobile insurance companies want to settle your injury claim for the lowest dollar amount possible. In fact, it is the insurance company’s job to scrutinize your claim to determine whether any injuries even exist, whether injuries are pre-existing, and to weed out fraudulent claims. Of course, the insurance company performs its examination of claims with any eye to deny and to devalue your claim.
In court, the burden of proof rests with you, the injured party. The injured party, referred to as plaintiff, must prove his or her case by a preponderance of the evidence. This means proving that the other party was more likely than not to be the cause of the client’s injuries.
The Law Office of Rodney K Okano is always prepared to use the law to present your injury claim to achieve the maximum recovery for you. The insurance company is much more likely to pay more on your injury claim if they are convinced you can prove your case and its value. So having an attorney that has taken the insurance to court makes sense. The rules governing court procedure and evidence are not something to be learned overnight. Valuation of injuries is also a skill set that is acquired over a long period of time from working on many injury cases seeing how juries, judges and arbitrators value cases.
At the Law Office of Rodney K Okano, attorney fees are charged only upon successful recovery financial compensation. So no payment is required to get started and a fee is not charged until you make a financial recovery. Please see the following rule regarding attorney contingent fee.
