Services & Practice Areas
At the intersection of criminal and civil cases, there are tort cases which reveal some of humanity’s gravest injustices, but also the greatest opportunities for a jury to make things right.
If the actions of another person, business, or institution has caused you catastrophic injury, the death of a family member, or significant economic harm, Roger Davidheiser can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Serious Personal Injury
A plaintiff in a serious or catastrophic personal injury case suffers from long-term or permanent disability and disfigurement (or death), often causing the inability to work in the plaintiff’s chosen field, or any field. The injured person or surviving family member is entitled to compensation, or “damages,” for all losses resulting from the injuries and their effects. Victims should receive enough money to pay for medical and other expenses as well as the pain, suffering, and loss of quality of life resulting from the injury. This is what’s referred to as “making the plaintiff whole,” and it is your attorney’s duty to ensure that you are made as whole as possible.
Roger Davidheiser is available to try serious personal injury cases involving, but not limited to, the following:
- Trucking and serious car accidents
- Traumatic brain injury
- Assault, Battery and other intentional torts
- Product liability
- Premises liability Corporate wrongdoing/negligence
- Wrongful death
Compensation in catastrophic injury cases can be much more significant, but the facts and arguments needed to prove the extent of those losses are more complex. This is why it is so important to hire an experienced trial attorney with the resources needed to thoroughly present your case.

A Former Client:
- June 24, 2016, Las Vegas, NV
Roger Davidheiser obtained a $2 million award from a Clark County Nevada jury on behalf of a woman run over in a road rage incident in a Target parking lot in Las Vegas. Jean Kohl suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spine and ankle injuries when she was run over by a pickup truck owned by a local business, Dakem and Associates, driven by its employee, Edward Reed. At trial the defense argued that Mr. Reed was justified and acting in self-defense, and that Ms. Kohl and her boyfriend were at fault and caused Ms. Kohl’s injuries because they decided to get out of their car and continue the confrontation. The jury rejected these arguments and found Mr. Reed at fault, the cause of Ms. Kohl’s injuries, and responsible for her damages. The jury found Dakem liable for the conduct of its employee, Mr. Reed. The jury awarded $522,086 in past and future medical costs and $1.5 million in past and future pain and suffering. Additionally, the jury found that punitive damages were warranted. Just before the start of the punitive damages phase of the trial, the case settled for a confidential amount.
