Car Accidents

The Rose Law Office has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for its clients since 1998.

When you choose The Rose Law Office to handle your case, you will not be brushed aside to some paralegal. Rather, you will be working with Sean Rose and his team of professionals. Sean has over 25 years of experience handling auto accident cases and providing first-class representation. As a result, The Rose Law Office has become known as a reputable law firm that can handle the most complex, expensive and sophisticated cases.

The Rose Law Office handles all types of auto accident cases, including:

  • Rear-end accidents
  • Drunk and impaired driving accidents
  • Distracted (texting, eating, putting on makeup etc.) driving accidents
  • Exhibition of speed (racing) accidents
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Improper turn
  • Running traffic control device (red light/stop sign)
  • Improper lane change
  • Other negligent conduct

Since 1998, The Rose Law Office has maximized the recovery for our clients, many of whom had incurred significant medical bills, lost significant earnings and suffered severe injuries.

The Rose Law Office is unlike most other personal injury law firms. We see our job not only to recover the maximum amount under the law from the At-Fault party but, more importantly, to maximize the monies that go into our clients’ pockets. By taking advantage of Nevada’s personal injury and insurance laws to its client’s benefit, The Rose Law Office is able, in most cases, to increase the funds that go into the client’s pocket.

Most personal injury firms pay minimal attention to such items as medical provider liens, health insurance subrogation liens or medical payment coverage under the client’s auto insurance policy. By ignoring or not understanding those items, the attorney can be costing their clients thousands of dollars.

At The Rose Law Office, we specifically focus on those areas to maximize our client’s recovery. For instance, we insist that medical providers bill the client’s health insurance for treatment of injuries suffered in an accident, which can add tens of thousands of dollars to the amount a client puts in their pocket. In many instances, we will fight with hospitals for wrongfully asserting hospital liens in order to increase the amount the hospital recovers as compared to the amount it would receive from the client’s health insurance.

Likewise, The Rose Law Office will pursue collection of their client’s Medical Payments Coverage under the client’s auto coverage, rather than allow those funds to be paid directly to the provider. Again, potentially putting thousands of additional dollars into the client’s pocket.

At the end of a case, The Rose Law Office, unlike other personal injury attorney’s, will use our comprehensive understanding of health insurance subrogation rights to negotiate reductions of the client’s health insurer’s subrogation lien. In many cases, those reductions can be in excess of 50%, which again results in potentially putting thousands of additional dollars into the client’s pocket.

Most importantly, The Rose Law Office, unlike some other personal injury firms, does not charge an additional fee on the additional funds paid to the client due to the savings on these liens. Most firms charge a percentage contingency fee on the funds recovered for the client, whether from the At-Fault party, underinsured motorist benefits and/or medical payment benefits. Then, if the firm happens to negotiate a reduction in the amounts to be paid on either the provider or health insurance subrogation liens, the firm will charge a contingency fee for the savings realized on the client’s behalf. For instance, if the health insurer’s subrogation lien was $100,000 and the firm is able to negotiate a reduction of $30,000, the firm will charge a 33.33% contingency fee against the $30,000 saving. So the client would receive $20,000 and the firm would receive $10,000. However, at The Rose Law Office, a separate fee is never charged against the negotiated savings. Hence, the client would put the full $30,000 savings in their pocket.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE IN A CAR ACCIDENT      

  1. If possible, do not move your vehicle. However, if it is unsafe to leave your vehicle on the roadway, move it to a safe location off the roadway.
  2. Call 911. While the police will not always respond to an accident, it is always best if there is an accident report prepared. Hence, at the very least, you should attempt to have the police respond.
  3. If the police will not respond, exchange information with the At-Fault party. If possible, take pictures of the insurance card, driver’s license, vehicle damage (both vehicles) and accident scene.
  4. If the police did not respond, you should complete an accident report with the appropriate police agency as soon as possible to memorialize all the facts of the accident in an official record.
  5. If you are injured, seek immediate medical attention by either being transported by ambulance if your injuries justify such or being transported by a family member or friend. Frequently, individuals that have been in an accident do not fully comprehend the full extent of their injuries for several days due to such things as the adrenalin rush from the accident, insufficient time for swelling and tension to have occurred or simply due to the nature of the injury. While you may not believe you suffered a substantial injury, it is always best to seek immediate medical attention to prevent exacerbating any unknown injuries.
  6. If you have health insurance, make sure and have any medical provider bill your health insurer for your treatment. Under Nevada law, by having your health insurance pay your medical expenses, we can substantially increase the amount of money that goes into your pocket.
  7. After receiving the necessary medical attention, contact The Rose Law Office.
  8. If you chose to report the accident on your own, contact your insurance company and the At-Fault driver’s insurance company and report the accident. However, limit your report to the general facts of the accident and to general statements regarding your injuries. DO NOT state that you are not injured, agree to give a recorded statement or give the At-Fault driver’s insurance company authority to obtain your medical records.
  9. It is recommended that you have your property damages addressed by the At-Fault driver’s insurance company and not your own auto insurance to avoid having a claim against your insurance. In pursuing your property damage claim, DO NOT SPEAK WITH THE ADJUSTER ABOUT YOUR INJURIES OR THE FACTS OF THE ACCIDENT.
  10. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS, NOT EVEN YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY. THEY ARE THERE TO PAY YOU AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE.

If you do not have health insurance and cannot afford medical care, our firm can assist you in getting the necessary care and treatment. We have a network of various physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, imaging centers, surgery centers, hospitals, psychologists, and other medical professionals who we work with that treat our clients on a lien basis. In other words, these medical providers will agree to treat you and will await payment out of your personal injury recovery. Understand, other than referring to these medical providers, we do not receive anything and do not give anything to these providers. We refer to these providers because we believe they are excellent providers and will provide the best care and treatment to our clients.

With our contingency fee arrangement, our firm takes no fee unless we make a recovery on your behalf. Consequently, there are no attorney’s fees or costs of pursuing your claim for our client’s to worry about. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, let The Rose Law Office pursue the At-Fault driver and maximize your recovery. Let us concentrate on maximizing your recovery so you can concentrate on healing your body.
