What are Hours-of-Service Regulations?

Depending on certain factors, Nevada companies that employ truck drivers may be required to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Hours of Service Regulations. These rules establish limits on the work hours of drivers in order to reduce their fatigue, which can prevent accidents and improve drivers’ overall health.

The basics of a contract

Many Nevada companies rely on contracts for a variety of their everyday business functions, such as order fulfillment and employee confidentiality. We at the Aldrich Law Firm are very familiar with the workings of contracts in these types of business contexts. Although these legal agreements can be quite complex, they do share some basic commonalities.

16-year-old cited for causing car accident

There are many young people who come to Las Vegas to relax and enjoy the night life. This can certainly be fun in the appropriate environments, but when rambunctious behavior carries over into driving, serious accidents can result. When this occurs, the victims of these car accidents may choose to pursue civil litigation against those responsible for their injuries and property damage.

Las Vegas man killed in motorcycle accident

Many people consider motorcycles to be excellent means of transportation. It is easy to see why; these vehicles are adept at navigating in tight spaces and are ideal for sightseeing. With the fantastic scenery available along Las Vegas roadways, many city residents and tourists opt to use these vehicles. However, because motorcycles do not have as much protection as other types of vehicles, accidents can easily lead to serious personal injury and fatalities for motorcyclists.

Dissolving a partnership may involve a lawsuit

There are many situations in which it makes sense for Las Vegas entrepreneurs to end a company—low profitability, business disputes or even simple boredom can be enough to make business owners go their separate ways. Here at the Aldrich Law Firm, we understand that while some partnerships can conclude cleanly, others require extensive negotiations and perhaps even litigation in order to reach a resolution.

Unsafe outdoor areas can lead to premises liability suits

When someone is injured because a property was not maintained properly, that injured person (the plaintiff) may be able to pursue a premises liability claim against the property owners or possessors (the defendants). If such lawsuits are successful, the defendants can be held responsible for the losses plaintiffs incurred as a result of their injuries.  

What is the process for filing a civil appeal?

If a party to a civil lawsuit is unhappy with the outcome of the trial, it is possible to appeal the case if there is a chance the ruling court made an error in applying the law. Those who would like to change or reverse the decision of a civil trial court in Las Vegas must follow certain procedures in order to successfully initiate an appeal.

Paris Hilton’s brother causes car crash

Las Vegas is a city that attracts a number of tourists, many of them young people who are looking for an exciting vacation. Sometimes these people exhibit poor decision making skills, choosing to drive under the influence or at reckless speeds. When accidents result from this type of behavior, these drivers may face personal injury lawsuits.
