Firm litigates auto accident, premises liability and wrongful death claims
- Automobile accidents — Even a minor automobile accident can trigger back, neck or internal injuries that may have lasting, adverse effects. If you have been injured in a car or truck crash, our experienced personal injury attorneys can provide legal representation to help you recover appropriate payment from the at-fault driver and their insurance company.
- Premises liability claims — Property owners and others who are responsible for maintaining safe conditions at a given location could be held liable for falls and other types of accidents that occur on their premises. These claims can occur at supermarkets, in parking lots or other venues where the public gathers, such as stadiums and amusement parks. In premises liability claims stemming from falls and other incidents, we perform an honest evaluation of our clients’ case and offer superior legal advice regarding their options.
- Wrongful deaths — In the event that an accident injury led to the death of a loved one, you and/or other immediate members of the decedent’s family may be able to make a wrongful death claim against the person or business who contributed to the fatality. Family members who relied on the decedent for financial or emotional support could receive damages for income the victim would have earned, funeral expenses, household services and the companionship they provided.
No matter what type of incident has compelled you to seek legal relief, you can rely on us to make every legal effort to investigate the accident, locate key evidence, identify witnesses and establish the defendant's fault. Under Nevada’s statute of limitations, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit.
Types of damages available in Nevada
Under the law, victims are entitled to various types of damages from the people or businesses whose negligence led to their injury. Even if your case never goes to trial, the potentially recoverable amounts will form the basis of a demand during settlement discussions. Tangible costs, otherwise known as economic damages, that can be reimbursed include medical bills, lost income and rehabilitation expenses. Plaintiffs who prove defendants’ negligence can also be compensated for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and disfigurement or scarring that results from the incident.
Accomplished lawyers take on catastrophic injury claims
Out of nowhere, a catastrophic injury can devastate your life and leave you with a permanent impairment. These injuries usually affect the nervous, skeletal or muscular systems, often forcing a victim to undergo arduous medical treatment and rely on loved ones for assistance. Our team of attorneys can help you and your loved ones get the medical and/or psychological treatment that is often a necessary part of rehabilitation after a catastrophic injury. We will also assist in recovering reimbursement for costs involved with treatment related to the injury, such as transportation expenses or modifications you need to make to your home.
Proving negligence in a personal injury case
To recover payment in a Nevada personal injury lawsuit, four elements must be present. First, the defendant must owe a duty of care to the victim. This is relatively simple in vehicle accident cases, because every driver is partly responsible for the safety of those around them. This can be trickier if someone who was not invited is hurt on someone else’s premises. A negligence plaintiff must also prove that the defendant did not take reasonable safety measure and that failure was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injury. Finally, a victim must prove the damages that he or she has suffered as a result of the defendant’s negligence.
