Is a Reno Personal Injury Attorney Really Necessary?
Nevada law does not require you to hire a lawyer in order to file a personal injury claim. However, there are many, many reasons to work with an attorney when navigating the personal injury litigation process.
In most cases, after an accident, you will file a personal injury claim with the at-fault person or party’s insurance provider. Not only does this require proving that another person/party was at fault for the accident or incident that caused your injury, but it also involves negotiating with the involved insurance company for a fair settlement. Insurance adjusters are not on your side. As businesses, the primary goal of any insurance company is making money. As such, adjusters will often use various tactics to dispute, devalue, or even deny your claim altogether. An attorney will not only know how insurance adjusters operate but will also be able to fight back against these tactics and advocate for the maximum settlement to which you are entitled.
In some cases, the insurance company simply refuses to acknowledge fault or offer a fair settlement. In such instances, your attorney will be able to begin litigation and, if necessary, pursue your case in court. This might be appropriate when you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury requiring extensive medical treatment and ongoing future care, as well as in any other situation in which the insurance company refuses to provide a fair settlement to cover the cost of your damages.

If We Don’t Win, You Don’t Pay!
An accident can result in a huge amount of unexpected expenses for victims, including sizable medical bills. Combined with everyday living expenses, these additional costs can mean significant financial stress for a victim and his or her family—especially when the victim is unable to work due to his or her injuries.
At Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P., we understand that the last thing an injury victim needs to worry about is finding additional money to pay for the legal help they need after an accident. That’s why we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.
With contingency fees, there are no upfront costs to begin a personal injury case. The client only pays their attorney if they win the case. Attorney fees are taken as a percentage of the recovery, which means that the client doesn’t pay anything out of pocket. This arrangement makes it possible for everyone to have access to legal help, regardless of their financial situation. With free case evaluations for injury cases, there is absolutely no risk, so do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible.
What To Bring When You Meet With Your Personal Injury Lawyer
You should bring the following to your initial consultation:
- A timeline of your vehicle accident (this includes what you were doing prior to the accident, where you were headed, the time of day, the weather conditions, your recollection of the collision, your observations, and what happened afterward)
- All of the information you have about the at-fault driver, including their contact information, driver’s license number, date of birth, and employer
- Information about the responsible driver’s vehicle, including license plates, the type of vehicle, and whether it is a company car or truck
- The insurance company that covers the responsible driver, whether you or a representative has had any contact with that company
- Information about your own auto insurance policy and your coverage
- A copy of any police reports generated, the badge numbers of any officers that left their cards, and any traffic citations that were issued
- Any photos or videos that you or anyone else took at the scene of the collision
- Photos of your vehicle or the other driver’s vehicle
- A copy of your driver history record
- Medical records, medical bills, and a list of any specialists seen as a result of the wreck
- Your insurance information, including your auto and medical insurance cards and policies
What to Expect When Meeting With Your Personal Injury Lawyer
At your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney, you are trying to determine whether an attorney is a good fit for you. At the same time, your attorney is analyzing all of the available information to figure out whether there are any legal claims, who your claims would be against, what sort of damages you may be entitled to, and your chances of success under the law. This is an important meeting for both sides of a potential team.
While a personal injury attorney is able to gather information by issuing subpoenas, conducting discovery on other parties, and obtaining records, they cannot do so unless you retain them as your attorney. Therefore, it is in your interest to provide as much information as possible at your initial consultation.
