Southern Nevada and Clark County has seen much growth in the past twenty years; Las Vegas is also the home of entertainment, and the most visited travel destination in the country. Due to this, many car accidents occur on our roadways and injuries happen within the hotels and casinos. Many times these are slip and fall cases or hotel / casino injury due to the negligence of the resorts. There are many victims injured in taxi cabs shuffling through the busy streets of Las Vegas daily. Taxi cabs and their passengers account for a large portion of city accidents. Nightclub violence either by bouncer or patron is also a major emphasis for personal injury law suits; many times the guest of a hotel actually becomes the victim of the hotel’s breach of reasonable care.
Benson and Bingham handle many out-of-state clients, and often travel out-of-state to interview witnesses and medical providers to prove the tenets of the case. If your accident occurred in the state of Nevada, you will need an attorney licensed in Nevada to prosecute your claim. If you are represented by an attorney outside of Las Vegas, or Nevada, make sure they are a member of the State Bar of Nevada, or they will not be able to file suit in the State without applying with the local District Courts. In addition, Benson & Bingham have affiliates throughout the country to assist in an injury related claim or lawsuit, and only refer to the highest qualified lawyers.
