Motor vehicle accidents
You likely take every precaution to ensure your safety on the road. But there is a limit as to what we can personally control. The truth is that the actions of the other motorists who share our roads can adversely affect us.
Our Enterprise personal injury attorneys handle a number of cases involving auto accidents, including:
- Truck/bus accidents
- Taxi accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Cyclist accidents
- Car accidents
We understand that each personal injury case is unique. For example, taxi accidents or truck accidents often involve a commercial insurance policy. Motorcycle, pedestrian, and cyclist accidents often cause serious or extensive injuries, perhaps even lifelong damage.
When you work with one of the car accident lawyers with Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, you can have the confidence that your case is in good hands. Our entire team is passionate about justice and stands ready to do what it takes to fight for your legal right to compensation.
We all have the right to assume that the establishments we visit (and the surrounding properties) are well-kept and in safe, working order. When a property owner, management company, or tenant in the Enterprise area doesn’t fulfill his or her responsibility in this way, injuries can result. When this happens, the negligent party should be held responsible.
Some common examples of premises liability cases include dog bites and slip-and-falls. Many accident victims may not know their legal rights in these cases. If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property, contact us today for a free consultation. We can provide you with the legal advice you need to plan your next steps.
When you’re receiving medical treatment, you rightly expect that the professionals responsible for your medical care have the training and knowledge necessary to do their jobs in a safe manner. But healthcare providers are capable of the same errors in judgment and negligence that may be seen in any profession – except there may be much bigger stakes.
A medical malpractice personal injury case could stem from situations like:
- Missed diagnoses
- Wrong prescriptions
- Surgical errors
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the actions of a healthcare provider, an Enterprise personal injury lawyer may be able to help you file a claim to receive compensation for your injuries and related damages.
Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability benefits are in place to help those who are unable to work due to a disability. When you are in need of these benefits and get denied, you may feel helpless and discouraged. Many applications are denied because the applicant either failed to submit important information or made an error when completing the documentation.
Our Social Security Disability attorneys have extensive knowledge of the SSD application process and are here to help our clients receive the benefits they need. If you currently can’t work because of a disability, you want to make sure your application or appeal is filed the right way to give you the best chance, and working with an experienced personal injury lawyer will give you that chance.
We all benefit from the countless number of safety regulations and boards that exist to ensure that the products we use are safe. Despite these efforts, hundreds of Americans are injured due to malfunctioning or poorly designed products month after month.
A product liability personal injury case can include:
- Dangerous drugs
- Product malfunction
- Insufficient safety warnings
When an Enterprise resident is injured due to a malfunctioning product, he or she may be entitled to compensation for damages suffered. A free consultation with one of our attorneys can inform you of your options for your individual case.
A person who suffers an on-the-job injury that impacts his or her ability to work should receive benefits to help them while they recover. Workers’ comp benefits are in place so workers can receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses caused by their injuries.
Nevertheless, some workers have found that receiving these benefits is not an easy process. Employers and insurance companies may look for ways to deny a claim or downplay an injury to reduce payout. This is when working with an attorney who has extensive knowledge of the laws surrounding workers’ comp claims and benefits can especially help.
The workers’ comp attorneys at Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm have the resources and experience necessary to build a strong case withstand the insurance company’s resistance to payout. Our Enterprise legal team is ready to help you with your workers’ comp case, whether it is a new submission, an open case, or an appeal you are facing.
Sometimes the negligence of someone else sadly leads to death. When this happens, whether as a result of an automobile collision or any other accident, there is untold trauma and emotional suffering for the family and friends of the victim.
In addition to the psychological and emotional effect a wrongful death can cause, the victim’s family is often left with a large financial burden as a result of the death. While nothing can erase the accident and fully compensate for your loss, Nevada law offers certain provisions for those who have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence.
A wrongful death attorney can help you and your family receive a settlement that includes compensation for both (1) financial losses like funeral expenses and medical care, and (2) emotional losses such as pain and suffering and the loss of consortium.
A free consultation with a personal injury attorney at our firm can help you understand Nevada law surrounding wrongful death claims, including:
- When a claim is possible,
- Who can file a claim, and;
- Who is eligible to receive these benefits
