When you think of a car accident, what images come to mind? Twisted metal, emergency vehicles and a road strewn with debris? While all these things may be present after a car accident, many accidents aren’t so dramatic. Car accidents happen every day in Reno that may appear minor on the surface, but in reality can cause significant pain and suffering for the victims and their families.
Pain and suffering is a term that refers to the mental and emotional anguish a victim can suffer after being involved in a car accident. It refers to the physical injuries and the loss of enjoyment of life in the months or years after the accident. These are all very real losses, and if they were caused by another driver’s negligence, Nevada law allows the victim to recover monetary damages.
At Bradley Drendel & Jeannie, we know how real the pain and suffering from a car accident can be. We have seen countless clients who suffered these and other losses. We work hard to get our clients the compensation they deserve, whether in a jury trial or in settlement negotiations with the negligent driver’s insurer.
At our law firm we do everything in our power to ensure a favorable outcome for our clients. Pain and suffering is just one category of damages that can be claimed. There are other compensable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, scarring and disfigurement that can be sought after a Reno car accident injury.
