We represent injured clients throughout all of Nevada, including those in Elko County, Eureka County, Whitepine County, Lander County, Humboldt County, Pershing County, Churchill County and Washoe County.
Clients throughout Nevada rely on our law firm to obtain the compensation they need in all types of personal injury cases. We handle a broad range of accidents, including:
Auto accidents — With insurance companies paying out less money on claims than ever before, it can seem impossible to obtain a just settlement after an auto accident. Kidwell & Gallagher uses our professional reputation, skills and determination to help negotiate with auto insurers to get a fair settlement. When necessary, we provide the representation you need in lawsuits against insurance companies and negligent parties.
“Big-rig” truck accidents — Because of the enormous size and weight of large commercial trucks, such as big rigs, semi trucks, and 18-wheelers, accidents involving these types of trucks frequently result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Further, commercial vehicles and operators are subject to a multitude of laws and regulations that passenger cars are not. We guide you through a serious truck accident claim to obtain compensation for your injuries or the loss of a loved one.
Motorcycle accidents — When a driver is negligent or reckless and hits a motorcycle, it can cause life-threatening injuries to the rider or even death. We help victims recover for motorcycle accidents, even when you are partly at fault — as long as you are less at fault than the other party.
Dog bites — Dog bites and animal attacks can cause permanent, and sometimes disfiguring injuries. These kinds of attacks often cause severe emotional distress. We help you recover for these traumatic injuries by holding dog owners liable for the injuries their animals cause.
Back and spinal injuries — Back and spinal injuries can leave you with long-term injuries, ranging from a painful herniated disc to even paralysis. With our experience in dealing with these types of catastrophic injuries, Kidwell & Gallagher can help you obtain compensation for the life-changing effects of your injuries.
Head injuries — Head injuries may result in serious traumatic brain injury and are often misdiagnosed or even missed in many motor vehicle crashes. We work closely with many doctors to help you obtain the treatment you need.
What Should You Do If You Are Injured?
If you were recently in an accident at work, in the community, or on the road, follow these steps:
- Seek medical care.
- Write down everything you remember about the accident. Include names and contact information for witnesses and police officers at the scene.
- Take pictures of the scene. If you were in a car accident, take pictures of your car and the other cars involved. If you tripped over an object on the sidewalk, take a picture of the object.
- Do not make any statements to insurance company representatives until you talk to a lawyer from Kidwell & Gallagher.
By following these steps, you can gather evidence to help your case. Each personal injury lawyer at Kidwell & Gallagher, Ltd. uses this evidence and other resources to fight for your rights.
Our lawyers have represented clients in all court levels, from Reno, NV district courts to the state supreme court. Despite our extensive trial experience, we are a smaller firm that aims to stay personable and approachable.
