In an aggressive driving lawsuit, you may claim any kind of tangible or intangible loss that you have because of the accident. Our attorneys ensure that you include all types of compensation in your claim.
It’s possible that a case can be both criminal and civil. If you’re the victim of an aggressive driver, it’s possible that the defendant will face criminal charges. Having the defendant answer in a court of law is important. However, it’s typically not enough for the victim to receive the monetary compensation that they deserve.
The purpose of a criminal claim is not to compensate the victim; it is to have the defendant answer to society for their actions. For you to receive a finding of responsibility and full financial compensation, including pain and suffering, you must bring a civil claim. Whether or not there is a criminal action because of what occurred, you may (and you must) bring a civil claim to receive fair compensation when you’re hurt because of aggressive driving.
Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I was at a stoplight and I heard some screeching and I looked in my rear-view mirror and I saw a truck go around me real quick, but the car behind him didn’t have a chance and hit me.
A friend of mine told me about Adam Kutner and so I went in to see them and it was very, very pleasant under the circumstances and they handled everything, and I wasn’t worried about anything, it was great.
The first thing they did was they helped me find a chiropractor and I went a few months and I feel better now.
I was really happy with my settlement, in my opinion he is the best lawyer in as Vegas.”
