The law firm of Edward J. Achrem & Associates provides tough legal representation for people who have been injured in an accident. With offices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Westlake Village, California, the law firm has been handling personal injury claims for well over two decades. Whether you live in Nevada or California, we can help you. Some years ago, Mr. Achrem obtained one of the largest civil judgments in Nevada history, with an unanimous jury verdict of $21, 000, 000.00, and the successful verdicts and settlements that have been achieved in California and Nevada now total well over $45, 000, 000.00. In addition to injuries sustained in automobile accidents, Edward J. Achrem & Associates also handles motorcycle collisions, medical malpractice claims, near drowning pool cases, slip and fall and trip and fall injuries, dog and animal bites, injuries to children and to the elderly, and insurance bad faith. Edward J. Achrem & Associates also provides a host of other professional legal services, including setting up corporations, preparing wills and trusts, preparing contracts and general legal consultation to residents of Nevada and California. For our hourly clients, we also accept credit cards as payment. On our contingency fee cases ( the majority of what we handle ), our firm does not take a fee until we have settled or won your case. A personal injury claim arises when one person is injured by another, and the other person acted intentionally or negligently in causing the injury.
