Firm Overview

The experienced Nevada car accident attorneys at Howard Roitman & Associates have a long history of excellent personal injury representation. Our attorneys provide aggressive, effective advocacy with an understanding of your unique needs. We have proudly served hundreds of Nevadans in over 1000 car accident cases, fighting for their needed compensation.
To recover money damages for your claim in Nevada, the injured must show that their injuries occurred as a result of the car accident, that the other party was more than 51% at fault, and the amount of financial loss that resulted from the accident.
Car Accident Evidence Is Complex
Car accidents happen, even if you are an excellent, careful driver. They can be caused by a variety of factors from the reckless driving of others to faulty vehicles. Carelessness at the wheel comes from myriad distractions - dropped cellphone, texting, driver fatigue, intoxication, bad weather, and poor road conditions - to name a few. The attorneys at Howard Roitman & Associates know that an immediate investigation and detailed attention to evidence can change the outcome and amount of damages you receive.
Crashes are increasingly common as a result of cell phone use. Texting, accessing the Internet, and hand-held cell phone use while driving are illegal in Nevada as of January 1, 2012. The at-fault party's cell phone records can be obtained to prove that they were using their device at the time of the crash.
Nevada has a basic driving rule that drivers must use a reasonable and proper speed. Accident reconstructionists can analyze a car and determine whether a driver was going over the posted speed limit at the time of the accident. The severity of the crash increases with the rate of speed that is being used, as does the driver's liability for recklessness.
Driving under the influence can lead to civil liabilities in addition to a criminal charge. It is illegal to drive with a .08 blood alcohol level or drive while impaired by other illegal drugs or prescription medication. The criminal liability of an at-fault driver can hinge on the results of a blood test, but even a driver whose blood alcohol level is below the legal limit may still be civilly liable to person he or she injures.
Get Legal Help For Your Case
The attorneys at Howard Roitman & Associates tirelessly pursue all evidence tending to connect responsible parties with your injuries. Eyewitness statements that are recorded close to the time of the accident are generally considered more reliable and reflective of what happened. Quick retrieval is often essential, and our attorneys know what needs to be obtained before memories fade, data is deleted, or records are lost. Often times insurance companies will attempt to extract a statement from you while your mind is foggy from medication and you are overwhelmed with recovery and car repair. It is always best to have the experienced counsel of Howard Roitman & Associates at your side BEFORE any statements are made.
Our office also knows what you need to provide to the court to show the extent of your injuries and the amount of damages you have incurred. Compensation needs go beyond hospital bills, and the attorneys at Howard Roitman & Associates will use every legal avenue available to maximize your compensation. If the actions of the at-fault driver show wanton or willful disregard for the safety of others you may be entitled to punitive damages.
When you are injured in a car accident, your main priority should be recovering your health. Howard Roitman & Associates understands this and works to unburden you of the stress generated from pursuing a car accident claim with insurance companies. Our attorneys aggressively seek to provide you with what you need to get back to your life. If you have been injured in a car accident and seek the help of experienced advocates call our office at 702-631-5650 for a free, private consultation.
