Almost any type of accident can cause a serious injury. Whether you’re dealing with physical injuries, emotional damages, or both, your accident may have an impact on the quality of life that you’re used to living — some injuries might even lead to death. In one brief moment, you could be faced with lifelong damages due to no fault of your own, and your future could depend on the outcome of your personal injury case.
If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in an accident, don’t waste time contacting just any attorney. The De Castroverde Accident and Injury Lawyers in Las Vegas specializes in serious personal injury cases, and we can provide you with the legal representation you deserve.
How Do I Know if I Have a Valid Legal Case?
For a personal injury case to have merit in court, you must have sustained substantial injuries or damages due to the negligence of another person. A full investigation of your claim and an examination of all the evidence involved will determine if your case will hold up
in court. When you meet with one of our attorneys, we’ll go over the type of accident, injuries sustained, and any other damages, such
as medical bills that you’ve incurred due to the injury. At De Castroverde Accident and Injury Lawyers, we handle the following types of cases:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Fire accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death
Liability in a Personal Injury Case
One of the most important aspects of a personal injury claim is determining who was liable for the accident. Deciding who was at fault in an accident and for injuries that occurred as a result will impact the entire case. Our team of skilled personal injury attorneys will prove who was at fault as they investigate the evidence, then they’ll present your case and prove who was responsible for the accident and that your injuries are a direct result of that accident, and you’ll get the compensation you deserve.
Statute of Limitations for Serious Injuries
In a personal injury case, it’s essential to move quickly, so the statute of limitations as defined by NRS 11.190 is not exceeded. This statute covers personal injury cases, including car accidents, wrongful deaths, slip-and-falls, and other types of serious injuries, and for most cases, the timeframe is limited to two years from the date of the accident to file a civil action lawsuit. Within this time frame, you’re advised to seek legal representation if you feel it’s appropriate. Once legal action on your lawsuit commences, you’re no longer limited to a specified timeframe before the case is presented and compensation is claimed.
What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?
When a person sustains serious injuries in Las Vegas, the financial compensation awarded in a personal injury claim may be significant. This is due to the fact that extensive medical bills, lost wages and future damages are involved in these claims. To properly evaluate the worth of your catastrophic injury case and to represent your interests and financial needs, an injury attorney at our offices will typically work with medical professionals as well as expert witnesses in economics and psychology.
Different types of compensation include economic, non-economic, and punitive damages:
- Compensation for economic damages covers any financial losses you’ve experienced due to your accident and injuries, such as medical bills, rehabilitation and therapy costs, long-term care, and lost wages.
- Non-economic damages include emotional pain and suffering and the loss of your quality of life. If the injuries resulted in wrongful death, you could also be compensated for the loss of financial and emotional support, the loss of companionship, and more. Consulting with an attorney will ensure that you receive the full amount to which you’re entitled.
- Punitive damages are often included as a means to further penalize the negligent party.
How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help?
People who were seriously injured in an accident due to the negligence of others are sometimes awarded a substantial compensation that helps them pay for any medical bills they’ve accrued, lost wages or a complete inability to work, and future damages that may happen as a result of their injuries. An attorney will make sure that your evidence is fairly presented and that you aren’t left with thousands of dollars in bills due to an accident that wasn’t your fault.
At De Castroverde Accident and Injury Lawyers, our attorneys will diligently fight to ensure you’re represented in court by someone who’s on your side. An appointment with one of our personal injury lawyers will give us a clear picture of your case, which will help us present your case appropriately. We’ll work with medical professionals and other experts to put together a defense in your favor.
Even though you can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit on your own, the other party’s insurance company will likely offer you a settlement that’s lower the compensation amount you ought to receive. This is why choosing the right personal injury attorney is essential. You should work with someone who has your best interests in mind and who won’t be discouraged if your initial claim is denied. You won’t need to accept the initial amount, because working with the right attorney will mean that you’ll have more options.
