Speak with a Reno Family Lawyer: 775.284.8888

Divorce and other family law proceedings – including those involving child custodyalimony, and other issues – typically result in a court order that establishes the obligations and responsibilities of the parties involved. These orders may outline your responsibility to provide payments to an ex-spouse for spousal support or child support, or detail a visitation schedule for parenting time. As is a common fact of life, however, circumstances can change, and these changes may impact your ability to comply with a family law order.

As such, we provide clients who have experienced major changes with the representation needed to modify existing family laworders that better fit their current situation. We can help determine if you may be able to modify an order during an initial consultation.

Why Modify a Family Law Order?

To be able to modify a support or visitation order, it must be shown that there has been a substantial change in your circumstances. There are many reasons why a substantial change may occur that can justify a modification, including:

  • Job loss or wage cut that results in a change in financial circumstances
  • Accidents, illnesses, or injuries that prevent a person from working or being able to care for dependents
  • A change in a parent’s ability to provide for the best interests of a child, including drug or alcohol dependency, or other instability
  • Parental relocation
  • The preferences of a child, if they are mature and old enough
  • Domestic violence or abuse, or criminal charges

Every individual and family is unique, and every case is different. Whatever your needs may be, our Reno family law attorneys can evaluate your situation, explain your rights, and determine how we may be able to help you modify an existing court order if you have experienced a substantial change or if you are seeking a modification due to other changes in circumstances, including changes involving a child or ex-spouse.

How to Claim Car Accident Injury

Every victim of a car accident has the right to file a personal injury suit against the driver who caused the collision. It is important for victims to remember that in order for a claim to hold true, they must be able to prove the following components of a car crash claim:

  1. Duty of Care. Each motorist has the duty to operate their car or vehicle in a safe manner in order to protect other individuals and their property. So then, motorists are expected to abide by speed limits, traffic signs, traffic laws, turn signals, and other things put in place to safeguard other roadway users.
  2. Breach of Duty of Care. A victim filing a personal injury claim must first prove that the at-fault motorist breached his or her duty of care, causing the vehicle collision. Often, these breaches of duty result in injured pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists. Minor breaches of duty of care can result in severe collisions. More egregious breaches, such as reckless driving, drunk driving, and running red lights can cause catastrophic and, in the worst cases, fatal injuries. In some cases, an at-fault driver can be criminally punished.
  3. Causation. Next, the victim must prove that the motorist’s breach of duty directly caused his or her injuries. Causation can be considered cause-in-fact or proximate. Causation is considered cause-in-fact when the breach is a direct cause of the victim’s injuries. Causation is considered proximate when the breach does not directly cause the injury, but the injuries would not have occurred if the breach never occurred.

Medical Payment Coverage: Leaving More Money in Your Pocket

If you have medical payment coverage on your own auto policy, it is important to exhaust this coverage first. If you are in a car accident and your health insurance pays for your medical bills, we will have to reimburse your health insurance out of your settlement. However, we do not have to reimburse your auto insurance company for the money it pays toward your bills.

If You Cannot Afford Treatment, We Can Help

Sometimes clients don’t have insurance or the ability to pay for medical treatment at all. In such cases, we work with physicians, psychologists, and other medical professionals who will treat clients on a lien basis. In other words, we can often arrange for you to be seen and treated by a doctor who will agree to be paid out of your personal injury settlement money.

With our contingency fee arrangement, our firm takes no fee unless your win your case, so there are no out-of-pocket costs to worry about. If you’ve been severely injured in a car accident, let our attorneys hold those at fault responsible and help you get the care you need. You cannot take back your injuries, but youcan take back your future.
