What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law is a system in which accident victims can seek recovery for the damages that someone else’s negligence caused. The civil justice system permits injured parties to collect financial compensation for their economic and non-economic losses relating to the incident if the plaintiff can prove that the defendant is at fault. The majority of personal injury law cases do not need to go to court. Instead, the plaintiff and the defendant (or the defendant’s insurance company) settle the case before going to trial.

Our firm has a history of securing record-setting verdicts, a national reputation for excellence, and the financial resources to conduct thorough investigations and hire trusted national experts.

Personal injury claims can arise in almost any situation that results in injury or death if someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness contributed to the accident. In our years of serving clients, we’ve handled claims involving workplace accidents, auto accidents, truck accidents, animal attacks, slip and falls accidents, defective products, acts of violence, medical malpractice, dangerous premises, wrongful death, and more. Contact an attorney to discuss your accident before assuming you don’t have a claim.

Nevada Personal Injury Laws

A plaintiff must adhere to specific statewide laws while filing a claim to successfully recover a settlement or jury award. Certain burdens of proof, elements of a case, and rules for filing exist in Nevada. Our attorneys know the state’s personal injury laws inside and out. We can help you navigate them easily through knowledgeable legal counsel. We believe a few of the most important Nevada personal injury laws to know as a plaintiff are:

  • Statute of limitations. Nevada enforces a strict deadline by which all plaintiffs must file personal injury claims – or lose the right to recover compensation. You have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim in Nevada. Different civil cases will have different deadlines, however, so contact us for more information.
  • Fault auto accident laws. When it comes to recovering from auto accidents, Nevada is a “fault” state, meaning you must identify the at-fault party and seek compensation through his or her insurance company. Fault laws permit injured parties to pursue recovery through civil claims, if necessary.
  • Shared fault personal injury laws. With all personal injury claims, Nevada courts will abide by modified comparative fault rules when determining compensation. This means a plaintiff may share fault for an accident and still receive partial recovery. The courts will reduce the compensation award by the plaintiff’s percentage of fault.

Nevada has many different personal injury statutes that may come into play in your case. County-specific laws for Clark County may also play a role, such as county bicycle or cell phone laws. Work with an attorney to gain a deeper understanding of the regulations your case might address. Our lawyers can handle the legal matters and legwork of your claim while you focus on getting well.
