Las Vegas personal injury lawyer, Allen A. Cap, of the law firm Cap & Kudler, has settled a case on behalf of his client who was a victim of a car accident while stopped for a red light on Fort Apache at Spring Mountain Road. As the client was waiting for the light, she heard screeching brakes just as a Buick collided into the back of her Nissan and forced it into the car in front of her resulting in damage to both ends of her car.
The client suffered from injuries to her neck, upper back, and right arm. She also had headaches as a result of the accident. She received care for her personal injuries caused by the other driver’s negligence from Primary Care Consultants, Southwest Neck and Back, Dr. Andrew Cash, and Dr. Marjorie Belsky of Integrated Pain Specialists, and received diagnostic tests at Advantage Diagnostic Imaging Group. The treatment, which cost several thousand dollars, helped the client recover from the injuries caused by this motor vehicle accident. We helped our client with the property damage and rental car as part of our regular service to our clients.
We settled the Claim
We were able to settle the claim against the adverse driver for the minimum coverage limits provided by the adverse driver’s liability insurance. Unfortunately, the client had not purchased Underinsured Motorist Coverage for a situation, such as this where the at fault driver’s coverage was insufficient to compensate her for the pain and suffering she experienced as a result of this personal injury car accident. its. Our office and the medical providers reduced our bills in an effort to give the client a more fair recovery.
Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer, Allen A. Cap, says “It’s too bad that so many drivers are unable to afford sufficient insurance to protect others and that victims of personal injury accidents such as this client are not aware of, or cannot afford, Uninsured/Under Insured Motorist Coverage or Medical Payments Coverage in their own policies. We hope that Nevada will finally raise the $15,000.00 minimum coverage limits required under NRS 485.185 as it clearly does not fully compensate many people injured in car accidents.”
