Accident Injury cases also include instances that involve insurance companies, specifically when one declines to pay or demonstrates poor faith tactics.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases Seen by Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers

Legally, personal injury refers to any act of negligence that leads to someone becoming injured due to someone else’s conduct. In Nevada, some of the most common claims related to personal injuries include:

  • Vehicle Accidents:

    Bicycle, motorcycle, car, truck, trolleys, watercraft, public transportation, golf cart, ATV, and scooter crashes and collisions fall under this category. These accidents commonly involve drunk or distracted drivers operating these vehicles.

  • Boating and Aircraft Accidents:

    This category includes collisions involving fishing boats, helicopters, airplanes, jet skis, yachts, and other watercraft vehicles. Negligence is ordinary in these cases.

  • Pedestrian Accidents:

    When someone crashes into or strikes a person crossing a street, running, walking, or standing, and the pedestrian suffers a significant injury, the case falls under this category.

  • Slip and Fall Accidents:

    These injuries commonly occur in public and private residences. They involve cases where hazardous conditions existed, but those in charge failed to warn other parties, eliminate the threat by making necessary repairs, or investigate the hazard, which resulted in someone slipping, falling, and getting hurt.

  • Dog Bites:

    When a dog attacks or bites a person who does not own the animal, this situation could lead to the person filing a personal injury claim against the dog’s owner.

  • Defective Products:

    Product liability exists when a manufacturer produces an item with imperfections or flaws in the design that lead to one or more people becoming ill or getting injured.

  • Dangerous Drug Injuries:

    These cases involve injuries caused by safety code violations, product flaws, inaccurate testing, negligence, and other unknown side effects due to using dangerous drugs.

  • Nursing Home Injuries:

    These claims generally involve neglect of older adults or inflicting emotional, physical, or sexual abuse against older adult patients housed in a nursing facility. These patients and their loved ones have the right to file claims against the facilities or their staff for negligence or misconduct.

  • Food Poisoning:

    When a restaurant or other professional establishment causes illness due to improper food handling, preparation, or storage, an individual can file a personal injury claim against the business. Diseases and deaths caused by food recall also fall under this category.

  • Medical Malpractice:

    These injuries result from improper medical care from doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. Injured parties or their heirs may file claims to seek justice for such acts.

  • Wrongful Death:

    If a person dies due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct, the deceased’s surviving heirs of family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit to compensate them for their losses. Some of the most common failures in these cases include funeral expenses, wage losses, and loss of companionship.Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers - De Castroverde Law Group

Nevada Personal Injury Laws

Nevada, known worldwide for its vast deserts and exciting casinos, is no stranger to personal injury suits. The Las Vegas Strip attracts drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians daily, some of which suffer from accidents commonly caused by negligence. When an accident occurs, Nevada personal injury attorneys can help individuals in cases that need to establish who is liable, whose insurance will take care of what, and where to start.

According to the State Bar of Nevada, these accidents fall under personal injury law. Its primary goal is to uphold the rights of those unfairly injured due to another person’s negligence. In other words, this category of law gets injured individuals back into the situation they would have been in had the accident not occurred. Since a court doesn’t have the power to go back in time and prevent the injury from happening, it tries to make up for it by providing the plaintiff with financial compensation.

As an injured party in Las Vegas, Nevada you may recover benefits and wages lost from the accident. You may also be entitled to past, present, and future medical expenses, pain and suffering damages, and funeral and burial expenses. A judge may award punitive damages to punish the responsible party when the act that caused the accident is considered egregious.

Legal Support for Your Accident and Injury Case

Most injury and accident cases operate based on a negligence theory in Nevada. If you are hurt, it is up to you to prove to the court that another party’s actions or failure to act in a situation caused your injuries.

This claim is not always easy to prove, even in an era of camera phones and CCTV footage. When you file a lawsuit, you are not just fighting against the responsible party. You are entering into a legal battle against the defendant’s attorney, any insurance companies involved, and highly paid attorneys who represent these companies. Go it alone, and you may not win the battle.

You need a local professional who knows the law and will fight on your behalf. De Castroverde Law Group – Accident & Injury will fight hard to help you win your Henderson personal injury case. Contact us for a free consultation today.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Are Some Common Accidents in Nevada?

    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.

  • What Are Some Common Injury Types?

    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.

  • What is the Cost of Injuries in Nevada?

    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.

  • What Are Non-Economic Damages that Can Be Claimed?

    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.
