Building Your Case for Compensation
When you work with our personal injury attorneys, we have a specialized process in place for successfully building your case for compensation. We take calculated steps to use the legal discovery system to your advantage to build strong evidence to show the other side why you deserve the compensation you are asking for. First, your injury attorney works with you to gather all the facts surrounding the incident, including the initial police or injury report. If possible, they may also investigate the actual scene of the accident. Next, we utilize our extensive network of specialists, including accident reconstruction experts, medical specialists, vocational experts, and forensic specialists to help us use the facts of your accident to prove what is asserted in your claim.
We may also work with your doctor to identify your prognosis and a complete care plan for recovery. Throughout your case, we file essential legal documents, including the initial complaint, a summons, and motions if necessary. Our personal injury lawyers also work to diligently and accurately value your claim. Valuing your case is a crucial part of getting the full amount of compensation you are owed, so we make sure to include all categories of damages possible, including both economic and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress. While we are building your case, we also participate in negotiations with the other side in hopes of getting you a settlement before trial. However, we are willing to take your case to trial if the other party doesn’t agree to compensate you fairly for your injuries. It’s important not to delay in contacting an experienced injury attorney to begin working on your case immediately.
Reach Out Immediately – Don’t Settle!
If you’ve been harmed by the careless actions of a third party, it’s important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Every state has its own statute of limitations; if you try to file a personal injury suit after that statute of limitations has expired, chances are the court will refuse to hear your case.
Even in instances when an insurance company is prepared to offer you compensation for the injuries or property damage you sustained in a motor vehicle accident, it’s often worthwhile to consult with an attorney. Insurance adjusters are beholden to the companies they work for after all, and their primary concerns will be to save those companies money. Studies from the Consumer Panel Survey of Auto Accident Victims and other research organizations suggest that attorney representation increases settlement amounts substantially even when cases don’t go to court.

Stages in a Personal Injury Case
When you first meet with a personal injury attorney at Adam S. Kutner & Associates, he or she will ask you pointed questions about the incident that’s motivating you to file a personal injury claim. He or she will ask for the names of witnesses as well as for access to relevant police and medical reports. In most cases, a factual inquiry will need to take place before you receive a settlement offer or file a lawsuit.
If you decide to go forward with a lawsuit, you will have to file a number of legal documents with the court on a highly structured timeline. Once a summons is served on a defendant, he or she will also file legal documents that serve as a response to your complaint. There will also be a discovery phase in which both sides disclose all facts and documents that may be relevant to the deposition of the case. Here are some things to consider before going to your deposition.
Far more personal injury claims are resolved through settlements than through court trials, and a settlement offer may be made and accepted at any point during a court trial. Settlements typically stipulate that in exchange for compensation, a plaintiff will agree to waive any future legal action related to the personal injury incident. PIP coverage and med pay can also have an impact on your settlement. Don’t confuse the two together, there are similarities and differences between PIP and med pay. There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to determining settlement payments. If a personal injury lawsuit proceeds to trial in Nevada, all 12 members of the jury must reach a unanimous decision. The party that loses the court case also has the right to appeal that decision if they believe that an error in the application of the law contributed to the trial court’s decision.
Most Common Types of Personal Injury Claims
Auto accidents happen every day, this is why they are the most common type of personal injury case. For the most part, auto accidents happen because someone is being careless and breaking the rules of the road. While many motor vehicle accidents involve carelessness on the part of a driver or other pedestrians, others involve vehicle malfunctions, which may reflect negligence on the part of the motor vehicle manufacturer or the manufacturer of components used in a motor vehicle.
Slip and fall accidents happen all the time. A customer slips on a wet floor and injures herself. A neighbor falls down from defective stairs at your house. These types of incidents occur often which is why slip and fall claims are very popular. The majority of these accidents are due to property owners not maintaining the public area. It is the property owners responsibility to keep public areas safe to prevent serious injuries. If you were involved in a slip and fall accident, the injured person needs to prove that the accident was caused by the property owner’s negligence.
Doctors and other healthcare professionals aren’t perfect by any means. Mistakes happen often in the medical industry. Medical malpractice claims occur when a doctor or healthcare professional fails to give competent care and as a result, the patient is injured. If you were involved in medical malpractice, you must be able to prove that the healthcare professional violated guidelines of treatment and that you were harmed as a result. Medical malpractice is another common and very complex type of personal injury case.
Dog bites are very common and are becoming more of a serious issue for people. Dog bite claims continue to rise every year along with the costs. For the most part, dog owners are financially responsible for bites and other injuries that their dog causes. The laws on owner responsibility will vary depending on the state you live in. Some states go by the “one bite” rule and others go by “strict liability”.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials
“I needed an attorney because I couldn’t deal with the accident on my own, so I needed someone else’s opinion about my accident.
Well I heard about Adam Kutner through an associate of mine and I chose to seek him because I heard of him before also, so I thought he would be the best option for me.
I was very happy with my settlement and it came quicker than I thought, in just a couple months I received a check in the mail.
When I recommend Adam Kutner I would tell them that the settlement comes very quickly, and he is very helpful with transportation and whatever else you may need.”
