David Boehrer, Travis, and his law firm were great from the beginning. They handled the case for us very well and fought for us until the end. Every time we had a question we would email or call and would get an answer within a reasonable time, which was very important for us!
Great lawyers! The whole process was extremely easy. I would definitely recommend. Freddy was honest and upfront during the whole process. If you need a lawyer don’t hesitate to call them. Front office staff is always so nice too!
This firm was excellent in handling my case from start to finish and I will definitely use them again! Anyone looking for good representation should call David and Liz at Boehrer Law.
Without a doubt the best law firm I’ve ever dealt with. Freddy goes out of his way to get you taken care of. He does amazing work on your workers' compensation issues, he’s compassionate and dedicated to his clients. I cannot recommend Freddy or this firm enough.. truly amazing people.
...when other firms wouldn't even consider taking my case. Not only did they take my case, but through their diligence and attention to detail, I had a favorable outcome.

The steps you take after a can accident can help you in the long run with the challenges you face in the future. Seeking negotiations with the insurance company without the guidance of an attorney, failing to follow the advice of your medical treatment team, posting on social media, and even missing a deadline or filling out the wrong form could cost you significantly.
Nevada is a “fault state”, meaning that you can sue the other driver for compensation when you are in a car accident. In addition to being a fault state, Nevada is a comparative negligence state. This means that when determining fault in a car accident, the court will check whether you share a part in the fault.
If you do, the degree of fault that is yours will be taken into consideration when determining the compensation you are entitled to. Thus, if the jury finds the other party to be about 75% at fault and you are 25% at fault, your compensation will be reduced by 25%.
Involve authorities: call 911 for help and give a statement when the police arrive. Make sure that you do not admit to any fault when giving your statement.
Take pictures of the accident scene and get medical help if you have sustained injuries. Even if you do not see any immediate injuries on you, it is a good idea to get yourself properly examined by medical personnel. Some injuries do not present until sometime after the accident – after the adrenaline rush is over.
