HOW MUCH IS MY ACCIDENT CLAIM WORTH?

Posted by David Jacks | May 17, 2024 | 0 Comments

Calculating compensation for pain and suffering is a crucial aspect of personal injury claims in Las Vegas, Henderson, and throughout Nevada. Pain and suffering encompass both physical pain and emotional distress experienced by injury victims. The two primary methods for calculating this compensation are the multiplier method and the per diem method. The multiplier method involves multiplying actual damages by a number between 1.5 and 5, while the per diem method assigns a daily rate to the victim's suffering. Exceptions to these methods may apply depending on the unique circumstances of each case. Factors such as the severity of the injury, duration of recovery, and impact on daily life influence compensation amounts. Insurance companies often try to minimize payouts, making it essential to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. David Jacks at The Jacks Law Group can help navigate the complexities of your case and negotiate for maximum compensation.

Understanding Uber's Driver Insurance Policy: A Critical Look at UIM/UM Coverage Gaps in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada

Posted by David Jacks | May 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

Uber's insurance policy in Nevada has significant gaps, particularly regarding Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UIM/UM) coverage. Nevada law requires that UM/UIM coverage be offered by insurance companies, but Uber does not provide this coverage for drivers and passengers​​​​. Uber’s insurance covers different phases of the ride, but only offers $5,000 in Medical Payments (MedPay) coverage and no UIM/UM coverage in Nevada​​​​. Without UIM/UM coverage, victims may face substantial out-of-pocket expenses if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured. Personal auto insurance policies also do not cover rideshare activities unless specific ride share coverage is opted into​​. Major insurers like GEICO do not offer ride share insurance, while others like Progressive and State Farm do, but at an additional cost​​. This can leave drivers and passengers financially vulnerable. Understanding these limitations is crucial for anyone using Uber in Las Vegas and Henderson. Disclaimer: This blog is not legal advice and is for entertainment purposes only. If you need legal advice, please contact The Jacks Law Group at 702-834-6300. If you have been in an accident while using Uber and you were not at fault, call The Jacks Law Group for a consultation.

Understanding Child Custody in Nevada: A Focus on the Best Interests of the Child

In Nevada, determining child custody revolves around the best interests of the child, guided by specific factors outlined in NRS 125C.0035.

The Need for Adequate Auto Insurance in Nevada: Beyond the State Minimums

Posted by David Jacks | May 02, 2024 | 0 Comments

In Nevada, the state-required minimum auto insurance coverages are often insufficient to fully cover damages and medical expenses from serious car accidents. With limits of $25,000 for bodily injury per person, $50,000 per accident, and $20,000 for property damage, these amounts quickly fall short in serious incidents. Given the high costs associated with medical care and vehicle repairs today, this coverage does not suffice, especially in accidents that involve severe injuries or multiple vehicles. To protect against the financial risks of being underinsured, Nevada drivers should consider enhancing their coverage with uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) policies. These additional coverages help bridge the gap between what the at-fault driver's insurance covers and the actual costs incurred in an accident, offering crucial financial protection and peace of mind. For comprehensive guidance on auto insurance options, Nevada drivers are advised to consult insurance experts or check the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles for more detailed information.

Romano v. Romano

Posted by David Jacks | Feb 20, 2022 | 0 Comments

What is the standard to change custody after it has been established? In Romano, the Nevada Supreme Court held that “a court may modify a joint or primary physical custody arrangement only if (1) there has been a substantial change in circumstances affecting the welfare of the child and (2) the modification serves the best interest of the child.” Moreover, the Nevada Supreme Court further stated that “we overrule Rivero to the extent it indicates that a district court must first determine what type of physical custody arrangement exists before considering whether to modify that arrangement.”
