How Long Do I Have To Claim A Personal Injury Case In Las Vegas?

Personal injury in Las Vegas and Nevada is much like any other state when it comes to statutes. There is a deadline associated with each personal injury case, and that time is two years from the date of injury. Three years from the date a negligent act or omission causing the injury, or one year from the time you “discover” you were injured. In some cases, the injury takes a while to be known or to understand its extent. You can find out more about the statute of limitation or NRS Chapter 11 here.

How Do I Know If I Have A Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case can be complex. Therefore, you should contact a personal injury attorney in every and any case. It is your right to see if you may gain compensation for your injuries. It’s the smart thing to do.

When meeting with a personal injury lawyer, we will go over a three-step process to determine whether or not it makes sense to hire a lawyer.

  1. Liability
  2. Source of Compensation
  3. Damage Level

What Damages Are Subject To Compensation In A Las Vegas Personal Injury Case?

There are two basic categories of damages awarded in a personal injury case, those being compensatory damages and punitive damages:

Compensatory Damages

Compensatory damages put a dollar amount on the victim’s injuries to compensate the party financially, physically, and emotionally. They cover two categories: the victim’s monetary loss or special damages and the non-monetary losses or general damages.

Monetary Losses Are:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Cost of Living with the disability caused by the accident
  • Loss of Wages
  • Repair or Replacement of Property
  • Funeral Expenses

Non-Monetary Expenses:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium

Punitive Damages

These damages are used to punish the defendant for the infliction they have caused the victim and is meant as a deterrent from doing the same again. Not all personal injury cases are awarded punitive damages, and compensatory damages must be considered first. A court typically limits the amount of punitive damages to less than ten times the amount of compensatory damages.

Payments for Damages Awarded

There are two ways to be paid for the damages in any personal injury case. The first is a lump-sum payment, and the second is known as a structured settlement, which disburses the payments monthly or annually. The benefits of having a structured settlement is that it reduces the federal and state tax burden of the recipient. Every personal injury client’s needs are different; therefore, consult first with your attorney and a financial planner.

How Is Pain And Suffering Compensated In A Personal Injury Case In Las Vegas?

Typically, if you have been injured in an accident in Las Vegas, insurance companies add up the total amount of medical bills and multiply that number by five. The more severe the injury, the higher the multiplier.

Is it worth hiring a personal injury attorney?

How much does a personal injury attorney cost?
