We Are Familiar With Many Different Types Of Accidents
There are tens of thousands of serious accidents in Nevada every year. Some of these are clearly the fault of one party, and others are aggressively contested by everyone involved. Many times the negligent party may work for the government or a large company, or maybe they even ran away from the scene and still must be identified. Your accident must be addressed immediately, and your Las Vegas accident attorney must have experience in investigating and recovering damages in cases such as yours.
No matter what the details of your case may be, state law does provide you the right to seek compensation. This can only happen if your accident attorney can determine exactly what happened when you were hurt. Paul Padda Law has decades of experience investigating every detail of injury-causing accidents. This attention to details allows us to build the strongest possible argument for your recovery, through aggressive negotiations or even a trial, if you do not receive an offer that is sufficient to meet your needs.
Paul Padda Law has investigated every detail of cases that include:
- Motorcycle Accidents
Being in a devastating bike accident may be followed by the other side unfairly seeking to reduce their liability by arguing that you were negligent. We understand how important it is for you to receive financial recovery during this time, and we know how to secure the help you need as quickly as possible.
- Aviation Accidents
These cases are often complex and involve aggressive insurance providers working for large companies, seeking to pay you as little as possible. Paul Padda Law has decades of experience investigating highly complicated and technical cases and collaborating with expert witnesses for our clients.
- Boating Accidents
Recreational and commercial boating accidents are often deadly or cause severe injuries. Our office has a significant understanding of how state and federal maritime law will apply to your case.
- Postal Driver Accidents
These types of accidents are very common, but unfortunately, many lawyers are not well-versed in recovering damages in accidents caused by government employees. Your lawyer must know how parcel or postal injury cases proceed through the legal system.
- Bus Accidents
People are badly injured every day in bus accidents on major highways or city streets. Paul Padda Law can help you whether you have been injured by a privately owned commercial bus or a municipally owned or operated a public bus.
- Pedestrian Accidents
Unsuspecting pedestrians are often killed or injured by motor vehicles in Nevada. We have helped many clients recover the damages they require after these needless and horrific accidents.
- Bicycle Accidents
Cyclists have legal rights to travel around town or long distances throughout Nevada. We will not let a negligent or careless party avoid paying you the compensation that you deserve.
Many Motor Vehicle Accidents Result In Devastating Injuries
There are hundreds of annual motor vehicle fatalities in the Las Vegas area alone. However, while most vehicle accidents do not result in death, we annually see thousands that do result in serious injuries that will greatly impact the lives of the victims. No two accident cases are the same, and your lawyer must put themselves in your shoes in order to properly understand how your accident will limit your life in the months and years to come. Paul Padda Law makes sure to gain a complete understanding of our clients’ injuries and limitations caused by their accident. Gaining this in-depth knowledge allows for us to successfully argue for all of the necessary compensation during this difficult time.
The various physical injuries possible after a terrible motor vehicle accident may include:
- Muscle tears, sprains, and strains
- Painful cuts, punctures, and lacerations that can leave permanent scarring
- Broken and fractured bones
- Organ damage
- Severe burns
- Damaged joints resulting in limited mobility
- Back and neck injuries
- Head injuries and brain damage
- Spinal column damage that can result in paralysis
At Paul Padda Law, we help you get the compensation you deserve.

Nevada’s Statute Of Limitations Law Will Affect Your Action To Recover
State law requires that injured people bring their cases for compensation within a limited amount of time or else risk not being able to sue for damages. These statute of limitation laws are meant to prohibit people or companies from being sued for something that happened in the distant past. As the years go by, memories fade and evidence might become lost. It’s considered to be unfair for a defendant to have to fight a lawsuit if too much time goes by. The ability to recover accident compensation after a motor vehicle wreck will be affected by the following Nevada statute of limitations rules:
- Personal Injury – These suits must be filed within two years of the date of the accident that caused the injury.
- Medical Malpractice – Injured patients must sue within three years of the negligent act by a medical professional.
- Wrongful Death – These suits by the survivors of accident victims must be filed within two years of the date of death.
- Property Damage – You have three years after an accident to file a claim for property damages that you sustained.
Statute of limitation laws are much more complex than a simple list of times during which a lawsuit must be filed. These rules are full of exceptions that might affect your case. For example, the statute of limitations can be delayed to begin until you notice you injuries. This rule requires it to be reasonable that your injuries went unnoticed, and it often applies to spine or joint injuries that are sustained in a vehicle accident. Another exception applies to injured children. Of the many rules here, a victim child’s statute of limitations may in certain cases be postponed until their 18th birthday.
Do not think that you have a lot of time because you may still have over a year to consider your case before calling your lawyer. Several years may feel like a long time, but they are not in most vehicle accidents. Your accident lawyer will have to build a strong case for court if settlement negotiations fail. Paul Padda Law will work to recover everything that you and your family need, but you must not delay too long before calling our office.
Recovering The Damages That You Need After A Terrible Accident
Succeeding in an accident injury claim requires an experienced legal team. Paul Padda Law has an extensive background of working with accident victims to secure what they need on the long road to recovery. From the very beginning, your lawyer will strive to show that the other party was negligent, their negligence caused your accident, and that your injuries were the result of the accident. This might seem straightforward, but the insurance companies involved will fight hard to keep from paying you any more than absolutely necessary. Your accident lawyer must know how to build a strong case for your benefit. Among the many pieces of evidence that we will gather and study as we fight for you may include:
- Police and first responder reports
- Witness statements
- All sources of photographic and video evidence
- Pertinent medical records
- Maintenance records of all vehicles involved
- License and background records of all drivers involved
- History of companies which operate or own the vehicles in your wreck
- Toxicology reports
- Accident reconstruction data
- Driver logs
- Reports of defective or recalled vehicle parts
- Expert witness testimony and reports
Many people feel as though they are better off seeking a settlement offer themselves. However, insurance companies trying to reduce their liability are known to offer much less than what they think the case could be worth. They will consistently do this if the injured person is unrepresented, or has a lawyer unfamiliar with these types of cases. Only the fear of going to court and facing a costly ruling for damages will make the insurance companies serious about making an appropriate settlement offer.
Steps To Take After A Serious Car Accident
Before calling a lawyer, you must make sure that you get to safety in the moments after your vehicle accident. This may be difficult or impossible if you are badly injured, and you must keep in mind that your accident scene can still be very dangerous after the wreck. Other passing vehicles and sharp debris all too often cause further harm or even death to accident survivors.
After getting to safety, and in addition to calling your lawyer, do the following:
- Call 911 for emergency help immediately
- Be sure to give the responding police a full report of the accident
- Write down a list of all witnesses and their contact information if possible
- Write down a timeline of the events as you remember them; this will be very helpful to your lawyer
- Keep up with your doctor’s orders and advice in the weeks and months after the accident
- Be sure to ask your doctor about the future ramifications of your injuries, and how your life might be limited
