Liability when a Nevada child is injured on another's property


Some in Nevada say, "It takes a village to raise a child," and it is true that children are naturally curious, especially when something seems enticing to them. Unfortunately, children are still learning and developing, so they may not understand when a situation is dangerous and when it is not. Therefore, the law imposes a responsibility on property owners to keep their premises safe for children who may be on it. This is known legally as the "attractive nuisance" doctrine.

Safety of Uber autonomous vehicles an issue prior to crash


Technological advancements are increasing at an astounding rate to the point where technology that once seemed to be the stuff of science-fiction novels is becoming a reality.

Don't deal with your personal injuries alone


Life can change in a split second for Las Vegas residents, whether they are suffering from a personal injury or whether they have decided to end their marriage. The result of one incident can have life-altering events and change the trajectory of one's life from the known, the routine, and the mundane to the unknown and overwhelming. For some, dealing with the legal system is more stressful than the actual incident itself, which is why they might decide to forego their legal right to a personal injury lawsuit or accept a divorce settlement that provides them with less than what they deserve.

Nevada saw a high rate of fatal motorcycle accidents in 2016


Motorcycling is the primary mode of transportation for some Nevadans who want to leave less of a carbon footprint, enjoy the savings at the gas pump, or who simply find riding a fun way to get from point A to point B. Whatever the reason, it is important to recognize that motorcyclists are in a vulnerable position while on the road. Not only does a motorcycle lack the structural protection offered by an automobile, but they also weigh significantly less than an automobile. This means that in a crash between a motorcyclist and an automobile, the motorcyclist could be gravely injured or even killed.
