Why Do I Need a Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer?

Lawyers act as a sort of insurance because they verify that you are pursuing your claim effectively and on solid ground. Lawyers guide you through the legal process, handling several responsibilities at a time.

An attorney gathers evidence for your case through their investigative process. The methods of evidence-gathering an attorney employs differ depending on each specific case. Some of the services a lawyer can provide include:

  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Investigating the scene of the accident
  • Looking into evidence you’ve previously presented
  • Contacting expert witnesses to gather case-specific information
  • Utilizing their team as an investigative resource

What Types of Cases Do You Handle?

We specialize in personal injury and liability lawsuits. If you’ve sustained damages resulting from the negligent actions of a third-party, we can help you request fair compensation. Some of the common areas we work within are:

How Do You Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Claim?

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.

What is the Statute of Limitations in Nevada Injury Cases?

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 the 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.

How Much is My Personal Injury Case is Worth?

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)

Who Pays for the Cost of My Claim?

The payment of the costs associated with filing a claim commonly come out of the final compensation the court awards to the claimant. In an ideal situation, the responsibility of payment falls onto the defendant/defendant’s insurance carrier. However, liability depends solely on the outcome of the claim. If your claim is unsuccessful, your court-related fees come out-of-pocket. This is why it is wise to consult an attorney before filing your claim unless you believe your case has undeniable grounds or proof.

When looking for the right firm to stand behind your case, look at their track record and customer testimonials. At Cogburn Law, we understand the impact a personal injury has on the individual and their loved ones.
