Our approach is unique; as trial lawyers, we are passionate about securing justice and will take a case to court for a decision when necessary.

Personal Injury Cases in Las Vegas – The Basics of personal injury law

The statute of limitations in Nevada is a critical point in the ability to recover compensation. Nevada law NRS 11.010 restricts the time in which an injured person has the right to file suit against a negligent party:

  • Personal injury and wrongful death: A case must be filed within two years of the injury or death, [Nev. Rev. Stat. § 11.190(4)(e)].
  • Product liability: Cases of injury from a faulty or defective product must be filed within four years.
  • Medical malpractice: These injury or wrongful cases must be acted upon quickly, as the statute of limitations allows for one year to file from the date the condition, illness or disease is discovered, although some extensions may be possible (NRS 41A).
  • Cases filed against city, county, state or other governmental agency: These cases have specific filing requirements that must be managed correctly.

Should the time in which you have a right to file expire, you may be unable to recover damages. Some circumstances may allow for legal tactics to extend the time or file a claim under a different law or legal theory, but essentially – timing is a critical matter in achieving a positive outcome in a personal injury case.

Establishing Merit in an Injury Case

For a personal injury case to be successful, certain elements must be proven, including:

  • Breach of Duty: Another party breached the “duty of care” by acting in a negligent manner.
  • Causation: The action or failure to act of the other party can be established as the legal cause of the injury or death
  • Damages: The plaintiff suffered damages – physical, financial, and emotional as a result of the negligent act.

Types of Damages

Personal injury law covers a range of situations in which an individual has suffered bodily injury, death, or emotional pain due to an act of negligence. In injury cases, a plaintiff (the injured party) files a claim against a negligent party to recover monetary compensation, or “damages.” Under Nevada law, the types of damages that can be pursued in a case of serious injury include:

  • Cost of medical care, past, present and future
  • Lost wages, loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, physical and mental
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of quality and enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium (the companionship and support of a family member)
  • Punitive damages (compensation awarded to punish a negligent party)
