While the percentages of serious injury caused by airplane accidents are small, planes are the safest mode for transportation. However, injuries such as severe whiplash, slip and falls and even death can occur when airlines negligently fail to provide and uphold the standards of safety for their passengers.
You buy insurance to protect your health, belongings, and businesses. The interests of insurers and insureds diverge when a claim is filed, and it is in the best interest of insurance companies to limit the payments made to the people that own the policies and are paying the premiums. Insurance fraud and bad faith insurance occur when the goal of limiting compensation for losses violates the intent of the contract.
Bicycle accidents can be devastating and any of the injuries, from broken bones to permanent physical limitations, can lead to substantial medical bills, missed work and loss of pay.

Airbags are supposed to be used to prevent deaths and avoid serious injuries in an accident. They should deploy after the initial impact to help prevent second impact injuries to the driver or passengers. A defective airbag system may contribute to the severity of second impact injuries or can even result in no protection at all.
Defective Child Restraints
Most people do not know how to properly install car seats for children or infants. An astounding 80% of these seats are improperly installed due to poor instructions provided. Typically the instruction manuals are too complicated or unclear which could lead to improper installation resulting in car seat failure, child injury and death.
You have the legal right to seek compensation from a dog owner’s insurance carrier if you or a loved one has suffered from a bite and the canine owner is found to be negligent. When a dog bites you and you are injured, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney who has experience representing victims all over the State of Nevada. The attorneys at Mainor Wirth Injury Lawyers have handled many of these types of cases.
Gas Tank Explosions
Gas tank explosions in motor vehicles cause thousands of people every year to suffer severe physical injuries, which can often times be fatal. Certain vehicles were designed with side saddle gas tanks, in which the tank is located on the outside of the vehicle’s frame, rather than inside the frame which poses a higher risk for an explosion.
In the legal field, professionals are responsible for cases worth up to millions of dollars. When a client retains the services of a legal professional it is fair to assume that their matter will be handled responsibly and competently.
Physicians have taken an oath to uphold a certain standard of care. No doctor is perfect, but they should never fall below the appropriate standard of care that they promised to uphold. If a physician or nurse has failed to diagnose or properly treat disease or injury, or has negligently used a defective medical device during the course of your examination or treatment, you should consider consulting a medical malpractice attorney immediately.
Every year over 65,000 motorcyclists are injured in America. Usually, drivers involved in an accident with motorcycles fail to see the motorcyclists until the moment just before impact. Motorcycles do not have the kind of protection that cars or trucks have.
In Nevada, when someone has been the victim of a criminal assault, a negligent security attorney will investigate and determine whether the owner of the premises provided appropriate and adequate security where the assault took place. The general common law principle is that there is no duty to protect against harm caused by the criminal act of a third party.
According to the National Traffic Safety Administration 4,743 pedestrians died in 2012 in single vehicle accidents. Crossing the street can be dangerous, even if you look both ways.
Many people believe that if someone is injured on someone else’s property, then the property owner is responsible. This is an oversimplification of the law. The issue becomes complex when you begin to explore the many definitions of property, ownership, and of what it means for someone to “visit” the premises.
In Nevada it is expected that when people make a purchase, they are being provided with products which are safe and free from unreasonable harm or risk of injury. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
Rear End Accident
In 2008 an article in the Science Daily indicated that roughly 30 percent of all car accidents in the United Stated are rear end collisions, and the yearly cost for treatment of the neck and back is about $8.5 million.
School Bus Accidents
A school bus is an enormous vehicle. The size and weight of a bus can mean that it has extreme consequences for the passengers within, most of whom are not provided with restraints or seat belts. Adding to the danger of passengers on school buses are unsafe roadways, congestion, drivers who don’t understand the rules of the road, improperly trained bus drivers, malfunctioning parts, the list goes on and on.
Many victims of rape or sexual assault are left feeling that the justice system failed them. All too often, victims do not even realize that there is more than just a criminal prosecution. They can also pursue a case in civil court for monetary damages. When a rape or sexual assault occurs in a mall, parking lot, apartment building, shopping center, dorm, or other commercial area, a victim can file a premises liability claim against the owner of the property or the property management company.
Slip and Fall
People or corporations who own property have an obligation to maintain their premises in a reasonable and safe manner. When malls, grocery stores, apartments, restaurants, and other businesses fail to properly protect visitors from slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, they can be held responsible for the damage caused by their negligence.
Sometimes drivers of SUVs, trucks, or minivans are forced to take evasive action in order to avoid hitting other cars or objects in the road. When they do this, it is possible to rollover their vehicle. The vehicle designs of some cars have no protections for safety against rollover accidents as required.
Texting While Driving
Too many people view texting and driving as an innocent act, but, here at Mainor Wirth Firm, we believe it is a direct act of disregard for other drivers, and those responsible must be held accountable.
