What Types Of Damages Can I Seek After Suffering A Personal Injury?
No matter how a personal injury occurs, whether it is through a auto vehicle or bicycle collision, a defective product or construction site incident, the victim is going to require medical care to assess their overall injuries and to determine the next steps to recovery.
At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, our team of experienced personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas have relationships with qualified medical professionals throughout the State of Nevada that allow us to help our clients seek the quality care they need — even when they do not have insurance.
How Can Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith Help Me Seek Compensation For My Injuries?
The financial damages we seek on behalf of our clients includes the cost of medical care and treatment. Once we know what the short- and long-term physical and emotional needs are, we can design an aggressive and unique approach to holding the negligent party responsible for their negligent actions.
Our first priority is to make sure our clients get the medical care they need to recover from their injuries. If you cannot afford medical care, our firm will assist you in locating a chiropractor, physician, or therapist who will treat your injuries in compliance with the Nevada medical lien laws and ensure they are fully documented while we develop your case to hold the responsible party accountable.
What Financial Recovery Options Are Available For Personal Injury Victims?

This can include compensation for:
- Medical treatment, including current and future bills, medication, and rehabilitation
- Long-term care for catastrophic injuries
- Lost wages, including current and future lost income that results from the injuries
- Lost earning capacity, when the injuries keep our clients from returning to their previous employment position

What Are Punitive Damages And Am I Entitled To Them After Suffering A Personal Injury?
Punitive damages are not awarded to clients based on their injuries or losses. Their judicial purpose is to punish the wrongdoer for behavior that was outrageous and to deter others from behaving in a similar way.
Intentional conduct and other direct factors can lead to the pursuit of punitive damages, and raise the burden of proof to include clear and convincing legal evidence that allows the jury to award the victim the extenuating damages accordingly. Your unique personal injury case will dictate the damages our accomplished law firm pursues on your behalf.
Your personal injury case is unique and requires professional legal representation. If you have been hurt during a collision or other harmful incident, contact our personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith in Las Vegas at (702) 830-7380 to learn about the financial damages you are entitled to today.
