What Are the Most Common Causes of Personal Injuries in Henderson?
Probably the most common type of personal injury comes from auto accidents, and there are personal injury attorneys who are entirely dedicated to car accident injuries.
However, there are many other ways people are injured, including:
- Dog bites – You’re out walking around – the neighborhood, a park, a store – and a dog bites you. The law is tricky here. Dog bite injuries can be serious and you may be entitled to compensation.
- Electrocution – Faulty wiring? Poor electrical design? Poor maintenance? Electricity is all around us. You should not have to suffer just because someone failed to properly design, install, or maintain an electrical system.
- Medical malpractice – The people in charge of caring for our health work hard, and the stakes are high. When a medical professional makes a mistake, or simply fails in their duty, you shouldn’t have to pay the price.
These are just a few examples. Call us at 1-866-900-7078 and tell us about your injury. We’ll evaluate your case for free, and with no obligation.

How Do I File a Personal Injury Case in Henderson?
Are you filing a claim or a case? A claim is something you file with an insurance company. Let’s say you get a nasty burn at a local restaurant. You could make a claim with the business’s insurance company. They may offer you something, or they may deny your claim. Even if they do offer you compensation, how will you know it’s enough?
A case is something you file through an attorney. It includes the claim, but it’s more than that. An attorney will deal with the insurance company – and there may be more than one! We can also deal with the business itself if necessary, and have experience with injuries and what the real costs are. For example, medical bills are obvious. But did you miss work? Lose wages? Miss out on family time?
You could possibly be entitled to compensation for these things – and a Henderson personal injury attorney can help.
What If I Know the Person Who Injured Me, but I Don’t Want to Sue Them?
You don’t have to sue someone to have a personal injury case. In fact, most cases never make it to litigation. Plus, many if not most personal injury settlements come from insurance companies, not individuals.
Let’s say you’re injured at a friend’s house because the railing on their deck gives way. You fall and break your arm. You don’t have to sue your friend – their homeowner’s insurance should compensate you. The issues become:
- How much compensation should/could you receive depending on your injury?
- How quickly could you receive any possible compensation for your injury?
Do I Need a Henderson Personal Injury Lawyer?
You can decide for yourself if you need the services of a personal injury attorney. Just ask yourself a few direct questions:
- Do you know what to say and not to say to an insurance company?
- Do you know how to build a detailed case?
- Are you aware of tactics some insurance companies may use to reduce the amount they offer?
- Do you have a good grasp of how much your injury could actually cost to treat?
- If you’re able to negotiate a settlement, do you know how to determine whether it’s fair?
If you answered “no” to any of those, you should probably consult with an experienced Henderson injury attorney.
