Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle
How do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?
There are many different ways that people can be injured and hurt. If you have been the victim of a personal injury, whether it was due to negligence or recklessness on behalf of another person who caused your injuries in some way, then there is a good chance that this other party will be found liable for what happened.
For example if someone ran into me while I was walking down the sidewalk they could easily become responsible for any damages incurred as well as my medical expenses which would include hospital bills and even loss wages from work missed because of treatment appointments. So if somebody has done something wrong against you either intentionally or accidentally we recommend contacting an attorney right away so that legal action can proceed.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Case in Nevada
Nevada’s statute of limitations for personal injuries are two years from the date of the accident, and three years from the date when the harmful act or omission that caused damage occurred. Medical malpractice claims have a three-year statute of limitations.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions
In most situations, the personal injury lawyer will receive 33% of the total amount awarded in a case. However, litigation-based cases generally have additional costs. The goal of this fee structure is to limit the client's financial risk in bringing an attorney on board.
Most personal injury settlements are paid out in a lump sum payment. This means that the injured party will receive all of the money at once, and they will be responsible for any outstanding medical bills or other expenses related to the accident. There are some exceptions to this rule, however, and some personal injury settlements may be paid out in installments.
The IRS cannot take your personal injury settlement directly. However, if you have outstanding taxes owed, the IRS can put a lien on your settlement proceeds, which means that you will have to use the money to pay off your tax debt.
There is no upfront cost for a personal injury attorney. We work on a contingency fee basis. We only charge when we win.
A contingency fee is a percentage of the case settlement or court award. Typically it will be between 33% - 40% depending on the complexity and nature of the case.
The value of a personal injury settlement is calculated by taking into account a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, the expected cost of your medical bills, the amount of time you will miss from work, and the pain and suffering you have endured.
Common types of damages included in a personal injury settlement are medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.
