Wrongful death actions result when one person’s actions lead to the death of another person. These cases are often time-consuming and expensive.
Although you can file your insurance claim on your own, the other party’s insurance company is likely to offer you a settlement that is below the true value of your claim.
Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for Nevada residents aged five through 44. The most common accidents that result in injuries (both fatal and non-fatal) include:
Statistics show that young children are particularly vulnerable; in fact, more than 9,100 deaths occur in a single year in children under the age of fourteen. Nevada has one of the highest child injury death rates in the nation due to incidents such as these. Drowning is particularly troublesome in Nevada, which has the third highest rate in the country. It’s unclear what types of outlying factors – such as swimming ability, health problems or the use of a life jacket – could have contributed to drowning accidents.
However, fatal injuries are only a small fraction of the total number of people who sustain injuries caused by various accidents. For example, there were more than 30,000 deaths associated with falls nationwide, but that only accounts for approximately 1.3 percent of all injuries due to falls.
Many victims of accidents sustain injuries of varying degree. Common types of injuries that occur from the accidents listed include:
How much will this injury impact a life? How long will it take for a victim to recover? These answers vary depending on the degree of injury a victim suffers with after an accident. Usually, an injury takes a certain amount of time to heal, and a victim can fully recover and move forward with their lives. However, severe injuries like a brain or spinal cord injury, on top of taking months or even years to fully heal, may not allow a victim to ever return to a completely normal life.
On average, unintentional personal injury leads to more than $19,000 in medical expenses for victims in Nevada. However, more serious accidents can lead to much more disastrous consequences and significantly higher medical bills. While medical bills and lost wages are easy to quantify, provided all the paperwork is in order, the loss of quality of life can be a more difficult thing on which to place a dollar figure.
Quality of life can mean many different things; driving a car, exercising or even doing household chores can all be included here. If you are in an accident, the injuries sustained can have a permanent effect on your ability to do the things you used to do every day. These are known as non-economic damages.
Emotional anguish, loss of consortium, or even the inability to cook dinner for your children fall under this umbrella. If you led an active lifestyle and can no longer play sports in any way, then compensation can be sought for the loss of what once was a normal life for you. If your children lose the guidance and support they once had from you, then your family can seek compensation for that as well.
An experienced attorney can fight on your behalf for fair compensation when non-economic damages are apparent. Broken bones and lacerations will heal, but the lasting damages can remain long after the cast has come off. Therefore, your personal injury lawyer will wait until you have achieved maximum recovery to file the claim. That way undiscovered injuries caused by the accident will reveal themselves in full, thereby allowing you to be compensated for them.
