Reports and updates are still coming in on a car accident in Reno on Interstate 80 from earlier today, and the details of it remain fairly sketchy. No word yet whether or not anyone in the two vehicles involved in the accident were injured, killed, or walked away without a scratch. There has been no word as of yet even how many people were involved in the accident, whether there were multiple people in each car or not. This is somewhat surprising, as these details are usually the first ones reported in a situation like this, especially involving such a delay on the roadways as this one did. If you were in this accident and injured, however, your best bet for moving on with life after your injury is to hire a good lawyer. Contact Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law today for a free consultation to discuss your legal rights.
One of the big things to remember about recovering from an accident is that the hidden costs add up. You will likely need days off of work, if not weeks, and that increases. Food bills may go up as you are unable to cook or shop as you normally would. Physical therapy may be needed for some time to come, and psychological help may also need to be utilized if your accident was traumatic. This is on top of often the biggest ticket items: ambulance bills, hospital stays, medication, and replacement of vehicles or other property. Your life can suffer, too, as you are unable to do the things you love or be with the people you love.
This is why a good attorney is essential. You need someone who knows the true costs of an accident or injury, and can wring every last dollar out of unwilling insurance companies. Benson & Bingham have those rare lawyers who will go to bat for you to the bitter end, and treat you like a valued customer all the way through the process. Even if you’re hurt out of Northern Nevada, we can help – we have top car accident attorneys in Las Vegas as well, and all types of personal injury specialists. Contact us today for a free consultation to discuss your case, your situation, and your options.
If your loved one dies in Nevada from a prescription drug overdose or complication stemming from an interaction of multiple prescription medications, it’s worth asking why and how this happened. It may just have been bad luck, unforeseen and accidental. But it may also be the fault of an entirely foreseeable and preventable set of circumstances. If that’s the case, you could easily have cause to bring suit against a pharmaceutical company, hospital, or doctor to help you cover the costs of medical bills, funeral costs, the costs associated with settling an estate, your lost time and wages at work, and perhaps most of all, your pain and suffering.
One of the main things that can help reduce extra stress and worry and heartache in this situation is having a lawyer who understands what you’re going through, and understands how to help. Above all, it’s about taking the details off of your plate. You’ve just lost a loved one, the absolute last thing you want to have to worry about is fighting an insurance company or jumping through legal hoops yourself.

We are reminded of cases of medical malpractice in Nevada as more news comes out about the untimely death of a candidate for Mayor of Reno. By all accounts, the man died of an overdose of the drug methadone. This is a drug that people off use to help kick opiate-family drug addictions, like heroin or morphine. However, it has been leading to a number of deaths around the country, and people are beginning to ask questions about its possible over prescription and availability. If you’ve had a loved one die from an overdose of methadone in Nevada, contact Benson & Bingham today. We offer free consultations, and are happy to sit with you and learn the specific details of your situation, and offer our best legal counsel.
A very bad multi-vehicle accident in Reno today involved all types and sizes of motorized transport, including a motorcycle, a cement mixer truck, and seems like everything in between. As many as seven people were said to have been taken to the hospital with all types of injuries, including toddler. No deaths are fortunately being reported that we have seen, which is positive, at least. However, the fallout from this accident remains far from determined now. The injured child, for instance, said to have suffered some kind of a head trauma, which is never positive news for adults, much less children. The six other people said to be injured as well in this chain reaction car crash in Reno’s Golden Valley area.
Chain reaction collisions like this can be really, really damaging to life and property. They can also be tricky to investigate and determine a specific fault and negligence, at least for those unfamiliar with them. Benson & Bingham’s experienced multi-vehicle car crash attorneys in Northern Nevada understand that traffic rules of thumb, like the person at the back of the accident is at fault, are not hard and fast rules nor set in stone depending on the unique circumstances. That’s why Benson & Bingham offers free consultations so you can tell us the individual circumstance of your accident and injury, like a multiple car crash in Reno, and we can help you determine your legal options and rights.
For example, there is the early speculation of the Nevada Highway Patrol, via Trooper David Gibson at the scene, that the accident started with a cement mack truck hitting a passenger vehicle from behind, and the Chevy being shoved off the road and into the guardrail. What happened next is anyone’s guess. If you’re in the middle of the pack of injuries it can be especially hard to initially get an insurance company to take responsibility. They may claim secondary negligence or contributory negligence and drag you back and forth on your own. That’s why you need lawyers like Benson & Bingham.
