Personal Injury Cases We Can Handle
With over 40 years of experience under our belts, the attorneys of Edward Bernstein and Associates can represent clients in various personal injury matters.
According to the Henderson Police Department, more than 4,000 traffic collisions happened over a recent year in Henderson, resulting in around 700 injuries and nearly a dozen deaths. Many of those accidents resulted from negligent or reckless decisions by someone other than the injured or deceased victim. Nevada law gives those victims substantial rights to compensation for their losses.
Car accident cases constitute a core part of our law practice at Ed Bernstein and Associates. Contact us to learn how we can help you recover compensation after a car accident in Henderson harms you or someone you love.
Commercial trucks frequent Henderson’s highways, thoroughfares, and neighborhood streets, delivering packages and transporting goods to homes and businesses. The massive size and weight difference between large trucks and passenger vehicles often lead to widespread destruction and catastrophic injuries in a collision.
At Edward Bernstein and Associates, we fight to hold truckers, trucking companies, and others accountable for negligent actions that lead to harmful truck accidents in Henderson. Our team has the resources and know-how to navigate the often complicated and contentious legal proceedings that characterize many truck accident cases, making us the go-to lawyers for truck accident victims who need compensation to pay for their expenses and rebuild their lives.
According to the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), Nevada has seen a spike in motorcycle accident fatalities in recent years. Seventy percent of the state’s motorcycle accidents occur on urban roadways, with the Henderson area accounting for the lion’s share. Nearly all motorcycle crashes in Henderson lead to a biker suffering injuries, and many sustain severe trauma like brain injuries, spinal cord damage, facial lacerations, and extensive road rash.
The Edward Bernstein and Associates team fights to ensure injured bikers in Henderson receive the justice and fair compensation they deserve for their injuries. We have what it takes to back-down big insurance companies when they try to give motorcyclists less than fair payments for crash-related losses.
CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS
Henderson’s rapid growth since the turn of the century shows little sign of slowing down. Everywhere you look, there’s a construction site for a new house, office building, shopping center, or logistics hub. But with that progress comes injury risk—accidents at Henderson construction sites routinely cause harm to workers, often leaving them incapacitated and unable to earn a living.
Lawyers at Ed Bernstein and Associates fight for injured construction workers in the Las Vegas Valley. Through lawsuits and workers’ compensation claims (see below), we can secure the money they need to replace their lost income and heal from their injuries. Our team firmly believes that all Henderson construction workers, regardless of national origin or immigration status, deserve justice and fair compensation for their job site injuries. (Se Habla Español.)
We trust that the products we use and consume every day at home, school, and work won’t unreasonably endanger our health and safety. But sometimes, a product contains a defect that makes it unsafe for its intended use—putting innocent consumers and users at risk of catastrophic injuries.
Any consumer or industrial product can contain defects, including cars and car parts, food, medication, toys, playground equipment, power tools, household appliances, building materials, and industrial cleaners.
Nevada law generally holds product manufacturers strictly liable when the goods they make and sell cause injuries and illnesses. At Edward Bernstein and Associates, we have the resources and track record to hold even the largest companies accountable for the harm their defective products cause.
Dogs live in and enrich the lives of many Henderson households. But sometimes, a dangerous dog inflicts severe trauma on an innocent victim. Dog bites can cause dangerous infections, broken bones, and permanent scarring and disfigurement, especially in young children. Victims of dog attacks often have the right to claim compensation from the dog’s owner or keeper.
Edward Bernstein and Associates understand the physical and emotional trauma that can accompany a dog attack in Henderson. We work tirelessly to secure compensation to assist victims in healing from bite injuries and the lasting distress they cause.
SLIP AND FALL CASES (A.K.A. PREMISES LIABILITY)
Owners and tenants of Henderson’s commercial, residential, and public property owe a general duty to ensure the safety of visitors to their premises. That obligation requires them to take reasonable steps to fix, warn about, or keep visitors away from hazards that could trigger harmful accidents.
You may have a claim against a Henderson property owner or tenant if you suffer injuries because of a dangerous condition on their property, such as if you:
- Fell because of a slippery floor, uneven carpet, loose railing, or cracked pavement;
- Sustained burns from scalding liquids, open flame, or hot appliance;
- Were assaulted in a bar or mugged in a poorly lit parking lot.
Ed Bernstein and Associates have decades of experience securing compensation from property owners and tenants whose dangerous actions or inactions endanger others.
Workers’ compensation is a form of no-fault insurance that most employers in Henderson must provide for their employees. It pays benefits to workers who suffer work-related injury or illness, including medical treatment and lost earnings.
Injured or sick Henderson workers should easily obtain workers’ compensation benefits, but that’s not always the case. The Edward Bernstein and Associates team knows how to prepare winning claims, negotiate with workers’ compensation insurance companies, and fight claim denials, to get you the workers’ comp benefits you deserve after you get hurt or sick because of your job.
Some accidents in Henderson lead to a tragic loss of life. In those cases, Nevada law generally permits the deceased victim’s estate and surviving heirs to pursue a lawsuit for wrongful death and survival damages, including death-related expenses and loss of the victim’s income, support, and companionship.
At Ed Bernstein and Associates, we understand that money is no replacement for a life cut short. But the funds our team can secure for grieving spouses and families can often serve as a measure of justice and provide crucial financial support for the future.
Potential Compensation for a Henderson Personal Injury
Nevada law generally entitles you to hold at-fault parties and their insurance companies financially accountable for your personal injury’s financial and non-financial impacts. The Edward Bernstein and Associates team fights to get you the maximum compensation available from as many sources as possible.
Every personal injury case we handle differs, but we can often secure payment for your:
- Past and future medical expenses related to treating and living with your injury
- Other out-of-pocket costs resulting from the accident and your injury
- Loss of earnings due to missing work because of an injury
- Loss of the ability to earn an income in the future
- Diminished quality of life and personal or intimate relationships
- Inconvenience and life disruption
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Physical pain and emotional suffering
In some cases, our team can also convince a court to award punitive damages to punish an at-fault party’s extreme or intentional misconduct. To learn about the amounts of compensation you might claim for a Henderson personal injury, contact us today for a free consultation.
Our Role in a Henderson Personal Injury Case

The steps we might take on behalf of a personal injury client in Henderson depend on the specific facts and circumstances.
But in general, our team can:
- Act quickly to meet deadlines or preserve critical evidence
- Investigate an accident to determine how it happened and who’s to blame
- Analyze insurance policies to identify all that might cover our client’s injuries
- Answer our clients’ questions promptly and explain their options clearly
- Prepare and file insurance claims and lawsuits on our clients’ behalf
- Negotiate with insurance companies and defense lawyers to achieve a favorable settlement whenever possible
- Go to court to fight for our client’s right to compensation when necessary
- Manage the process of collecting and distributing the money owed to our client
We provide clients with these and other personal injury services on a contingent fee basis. That means we do not charge clients upfront or as a case goes along. Instead, we only collect a fee from the money we secure for our clients. If we don’t win for you, in other words, you owe us nothing.
Your Next Steps Are Critical
The actions you take after suffering an injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault can affect your legal rights and financial future. Following the suggestions below can help to safeguard your ability to seek maximum compensation from the parties at-fault and their insurance companies.
GET MEDICAL HELP IMMEDIATELY
Don’t wait to seek medical treatment for any injury, even a seemingly minor one. Only a doctor can accurately assess your condition and diagnose trauma. Delaying care could worsen a treatable injury, harming your health and hindering your ability to claim compensation.
DON’T AGREE TO OR SIGN ANY SETTLEMENT OFFER
An at-fault party or insurer might offer you a quick settlement of your injury claim. Do not agree to it, and do not sign anything. Chances are that offer will fall far short of what an experienced Henderson personal injury lawyer can get for you. If you accept it, you could end up without enough money to pay your bills and recover from your injuries.
CONTACT A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER ASAP
In most cases, you have at most two years, and potentially as little as a few months, to claim compensation for your Henderson personal injury. Missing a critical deadline could cost you valuable legal rights. The sooner you talk to a lawyer, the better they can protect you.
