With his guidance, you can navigate the roads confidently, prioritizing safety for yourself and fellow travelers.

1. Call the Police – Staying Cool Under Pressure

The moment you’re involved in an auto accident in Las Vegas, your first move should be to dial the police. As the desert sun heats things up, emotions can skyrocket. Angry, frustrated drivers might be ready to confront you, but here’s the magic: the arrival of a police car tends to have an almost miraculous calming effect. It’s like they know they’re caught when those flashing lights approach. Your safety is paramount, and having law enforcement on the scene helps defuse potentially explosive situations. Make that call, and watch the tension simmer down.

2. Secure Witness Statements – Eyes and Ears Matter

Witnesses play a critical role in the aftermath of an accident. If you spot someone who saw what happened, don’t let them drive away! Their account could make all the difference in your case. In fact, Morris Injury Law has seen cases where witness statements were the linchpin. In one case in particular, the at-fault driver was claiming innocence, but our star witness had seen it all. He noted the speeding and recklessness even before the collision. A statement like that set us up for a substantial $1.1 million settlement. Witnesses are your allies; make sure their voices are heard.

3. Collect Video Evidence – The Truth in Your Pocket

The digital age has given us incredible tools. When a collision occurs, grab your phone and hit record. Document the aftermath, and you might just capture a moment of honesty. Ever heard someone mutter, “I didn’t see you”? That could be gold. One of our clients had a video of the responsible party apologizing at the scene. But when his insurance company came calling, he sang a different tune – “It wasn’t my fault.” We sent that video over, and the case was as good as won. Sometimes, a little recording can save you a lot of hassle.

4. Prioritize Your Health – Immediate Care Matters

A word of advice: if your vehicle took a significant hit, don’t underestimate potential injuries. Even if you feel okay initially, things can take a turn. It’s a common tale – folks head home after a crash, hoping the discomfort will fade. But instead, they’re hit with throbbing headaches that send them calling for an ambulance. If the ambulance is there and you have health insurance, get the care you need. It’s not just about the car; it’s about your well-being.

Remember, Morris Injury Law is here to guide you through these moments. Don’t hesitate to connect for guidance, support, and justice. Stay safe out there, Las Vegas!

I can not even begin to express the level of professionalism, grace, class & just ultimately the overall experience of greatness I received with Morris & his crew! Not gonna lie I was really uneasy about going the attorney route especially when I came in on a casual Friday & they were dressed comfortably & so bubbly I thought “this is just for show!” nooooooo they are GREAT! They made my entire process so stress free & I couldn’t be more thankful to them for that!

I was referred to Morris Injury Law by a friend after I was rear ended. From the first interaction they came across as people who are genuinely concerned about me and my well being. Their level of professionalism and courtesy has been superior. I reside in California but they took my case anyway and I can say that I have been nothing but pleased with the services provided. They located a chiropractic service close to my home and kept me up to date and informed about every step in this process. I am elated with the outcome of the case and I feel that their fees are more than fair for the services I received. Morris Injury Law comes across as a caring group of people who happen to perform their jobs at a very high level and signing with them has been one of the best decisions of my life. I would refer them without hesitation.
