Personal Injury Attorney in Reno, NV
Frank W. Thompson has been representing accident victims and their families in the Reno, Sparks and Lake Tahoe area for more than 35 years. Working personally with clients and families, many of whose lives have been shattered by debilitating injuries or death caused by the wrongful conduct of others, brings Frank immense gratification. Your success in gaining a fair verdict or an equitable settlement is for Frank more than a monetary victory; it is also a win for justice, which for him is not only a legal but also an ethical reckoning.
Frank has an impressive track record of enforcing the rights of injured clients and their families by standing up to insurance firms, trucking companies, public utilities, heavy-handed government agencies, powerful businesses and unscrupulous land owners who have carelessly or intentionally inflicted injury or death.
Frank recently obtained a verdict of $3,200,000 for a long-haul truck driver who slipped and fell in a truck wash in Sparks, Nevada. Frank also reached a $13,500,000 settlement with a county government in Nevada that he alleged to have violated the civil rights of a private landowner. He recovered a settlement of $1,000,000.00 for severe injuries suffered by a young woman in a collision near Lake Tahoe and $800,000.00 from a national trucking company for injuries negligently inflicted on a motorcyclist.
These only begin a long list of successful results that includes:
- A settlement of $700,000 from another national trucking company for the wrongful death of an unmarried adult child
- Slip and fall or trip settlements from property owners in the amounts of $550,000, $500,000 and $325,000
- A $1,150,000 verdict against a public utility in Nevada for negligently causing severe high voltage electrical injuries to a young man
- A $2,650,000.00 settlement against a public utility in Nevada for wrongful death by electrocution.
Frank has also successfully prosecuted claims for high voltage electrical injuries against public utilities in California and Oregon.
As a trial lawyer representing accident victims who have suffered severe injuries and who do not have the resources to pay for legal representation, Frank advances for his clients the initial cost of investigating accidents, filing lawsuits, hiring expert witnesses and doing whatever else is needed to establish liability at trial. Frank then personally prosecutes all of his cases with one goal in mind: a fair and reasonable verdict or settlement that will serve as compensation for medical bills, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life and other general damages inflicted on those he serves.
Frank works on a contingent fee basis. If there is no recovery, you pay nothing – regardless of how much Frank has spent to prepare for your case. Many who have been seriously injured or lost a loved one believe it is not possible to extract justice from powerful interests. This is not so. You owe it to yourself and your family to hire a qualified, experienced trial lawyer who will personally prosecute your case against those responsible for your injuries or the death of a family member. Please call now for a free consultation. This first step could be the most important you take in gaining just compensation for your loss.
