25+ Years of Legal Experience in Nevada
When you’re facing a serious legal problem, you can’t afford to not have solid representation. Representing yourself or choosing a firm that doesn’t have your best interests in mind can result in negative consequences that will impact your future and the lives of your loved ones. At Christiansen Trial Lawyers, our Summerlin trial lawyers have over 50 years of combined experience that we’ve used to get our clients the results they need. If you’re facing a personal injury or criminal defense issue, we can walk you through your case and offer you options you didn’t know were available.
For over 25 years we’ve been devoted to serving Nevada residents, as well as people from other states and countries who’ve experienced problems when visiting our state. We make ourselves available to clients no matter how busy we are because we understand you might have questions or concerns at any time of the day. We also extend our services to clients in both English and Spanish.
If you lost a family member, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent party responsible. Wrongful death claims are similar to personal injury claims in Nevada in that you can recover damages and have two years to legally file a claim. Where they differ, however, is that not just anyone can file for wrongful death. In Nevada, the representative of the person’s estate, spouse, or heirs are legally allowed to bring a claim for damages. In some cases, the surviving parents or financial dependents can secure compensation, too. Our team is happy to sit down with you to explain what your options are.
Call us for high-quality legal services in Summerlin at (702) 357-9977. We know Nevada laws and statutes and can help you move on with your life after being arrested or injured.
