Douglas A. Reed's practice is largely limited to Personal Injury and Probate cases. Although most of his personal injury cases are car accident cases some of his more interesting cases include:
Playground injury: A young child in daycare was pushed off a slide during recess at school and broke his arm. The major issue here was whether the day care had adequate supervision.
Elderly lady whacked by automatic door at her doctor's office: A malfunctioning automatic door knocked down an elderly lady at her doctor's office. The case was complex not only because of her injuries but because, the landlord, the door manufacturer, and the maintenance company hired to maintain the door all denied liability.
Failed Medical Malpractice Cases that became Legal Malpractice Cases: Although we don't do medical malpractice cases we will consider legal malpractice for failed Las Vegas injury cases. Two of these cases that Douglas handled involved complicated medical issues.
A unique experience that Douglas has that most personal injury attorneys lack is that he has filed a federal admiralty lawsuit in California involving a boating accident--federal admiralty law can be more favorable to plaintiffs than state personal injury law.
Douglas also takes uncontested California Probate Cases in any county if the estate is worth $400,000 or more and gives a discount from the statutory attorneys' fee.
