After a car accident, the individuals involved may require legal assistance but don’t know how or where to get started. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, the experienced Las Vegas car accident attorney at the Law Office of Rodney K. Okano can help. We’ve been helping clients navigate the legal process for more than 15 years, giving us the necessary knowledge, skills, and resources to guide you from start to finish.
After being involved in a vehicle accident, it’s important that you follow these legal representation steps:
Seek Immediate Medical Attention
The very first, and perhaps most important step after being involved in any type of accident is to seek medical attention right away. Regardless of whether or not you believe you’ve been injured, it’s always best to be checked out by a medical professional. Oftentimes, injuries aren’t noticeable until days or weeks after an accident, and they can worsen over time if left unattended. When seeking medical attention, a traumatic injury physician is the best option. At the Law Office of Rodney K. Okano, we work with some of the best trauma physicians in the city and can help you get the medical attention you need, even if you don’t have health insurance. Contact our firm to learn more.
File an Insurance Claim
Filing an insurance claim after a car, truck, or other vehicle accident is a difficult process. Opening and maintaining a claim is both time-consuming and complicated. If not handled correctly, it may actually damage your case. When soliciting information about your claim, insurance adjusters are often searching for reasons to devalue or outright deny your claim. An experienced Las Vegas car accident lawyer has the necessary experience to properly file an insurance claim on your behalf. This lets you avoid the strenuous process and instead focus on recovering from your injuries.
Gather & Preserve Evidence
In order to present the strongest case possible, it’s important to gather any and all evidence that supports your claim. As time goes on, evidence can be lost. Witnesses’ memories fade, medical records are more difficult to get ahold of, and insurance companies are better able to deny or devalue your claim. At the Law Office of Rodney K. Okano, we can help you properly compile relevant evidence from the very beginning.
Have Your Vehicle Repaired
Recovering from a car accident applies to more than just your physical injuries—it’s very likely that your vehicle needs repairs as well. When we take on your personal injury case, our firm will also assist you with vehicle repairs. We strive to hold responsible insurance companies accountable, covering the cost of necessary vehicle repairs, rental vehicles, and other associated expenses. We push insurance companies to complete their investigations in a timely manner, presenting them with key evidence as we fight to hold them liable.
Fight for Fair Compensation
When you’re injured as a result of someone else’s bad driving or negligent behavior, you shouldn’t have to deal with the resulting medical bills, lost wages, and other damages on your own. At the Law Office of Rodney K. Okano, we help you fight for the fair financial compensation you are owed. While it won’t negate the pain and suffering you’ve been through, financial reparation can help you with some of the unexpected costs that follow an accident.
The Las Vegas car accident attorney at the Law Office of Rodney K. Okano provides skilled legal support throughout every step of the process. We have been providing strong legal representation since 2001 and will strive to recover fair compensation on your behalf. Our firm will draw on our vast experience to devise a strategy that’s tailored to your unique situation.
