We Handle All Types of Personal Injury Cases in Henderson, NV

Personal injury is a term that refers to a large area of tort law. There are many different types of personal injury cases. Most of these cases are based on negligence. Specifically, proving that someone’s negligence caused an accident that hurt another person. 

However, some personal cases are based on strict liability. In a strict liability personal injury case, there is no requirement to establish negligence or wrongdoing. All that matters is proving that an accident happened and that the defendant caused the accident.

Some personal injury lawyers specialize in a particular type of case, but we handle all of them. Some of our most common practice areas include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Slips and falls
  • Wrongful death
  • Construction accidents
  • Workplace injuries 
  • Product liability (defective or dangerous products)
  • Rideshare accidents 
  • Medical malpractice 

If you have experienced a different type of accident, we can likely handle that as well. Sometimes we represent clients who have rare and uncommon types of accidents.

What Is the Value of My Henderson, NV Personal Injury Case?

We always take the time to value your personal injury case early on in the representation. This is important so that we can negotiate to the best of our abilities. Without understanding your case value, we wouldn’t know what is a fair or unfair offer to settle.

The process of valuing your case is not always an exact science. Much of the valuation will come from our experience, especially as it relates to non-financial losses. Your Henderson personal injury lawyer may compare your case to other similar cases to get an idea of what to expect. 

When discussing case worth, your attorney will want to know about:

  • The medical treatment that you have already received
  • The medical treatment you must receive in the future
  • If the injury will fully heal or not
  • How the injury has physically affected (and will affect) you on a day-to-day basis
  • The emotional and mental impact of the accident and injury on your quality of life
  • If you have missed work or are unable to work 
  • If you have been moved to a lower-paying position because you can’t perform the same duties as before
  • The impact on your relationships and family life 

People who are permanently disabled or experience a catastrophic injury will recover more than people who fully heal. That said, everyone deserves compensation for their losses. 

You should keep in mind that the money you ultimately recover could be more or less than your initial evaluation. We fight to get the amount that will make you whole again.

What Damages Can I Ask for in a Henderson Personal Injury Case?

There are three types of damages in a Henderson, NV, personal injury case. The categories are economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.

Economic Damages 

Economic damages are actual financial losses. This money compensates a plaintiff for monetary losses that have happened or will happen in the future. 

Economic damages are very easy to calculate. It is also hard to dispute because you can easily prove the amount by showing receipts, bills, and estimates. 

Examples of economic damages are:

  • Emergency room visits
  • Cost of surgeries
  • Cost of medicine or medical devices 
  • Follow-up doctor visits 
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy 
  • Lost wages 
  • Lost future earning capacity
  • Property damage

It can also include other out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident or injury. This may include transportation to and from medical visits or domestic help, like childcare.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are non-financial and intangible losses. These are often emotional, like pain and suffering. It’s hard to put a dollar figure on your suffering, but you are entitled to money for it. 

Many of our clients receive payments for: 

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental suffering
  • The onset of mental illness like PTSD or anxiety
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of relationships or companionship
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability 

This type of loss is highly personal. It may feel uncomfortable to share these details with your lawyer but remember that it is in your best interest. By being honest with yourself and your lawyer, you can recover the money that you deserve.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are meant to punish a defendant for especially bad behavior. Whether or not you receive punitive damages will depend on the defendant’s behavior, not your losses. 

In a personal injury case, you must prove by clear and convincing evidence that you are entitled to punitive damages. Specifically, you must prove that the defendant acted with:

  • Oppression
  • Malice, or 
  • Fraud 

This often means that the defendant had an actual intent to hurt someone, or they consciously disregarded the safety of others. This is different from a defendant who made an honest mistake or even one who acted negligently (carelessly). 

While punitive damages are rare, we will always consider whether or not they are appropriate in your case. 

What Is the Statute Of Limitations for a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Nevada?

The statute of limitations is the time that you have to file a lawsuit. If you file after the deadline, then you waive your right to compensation through the courts.

In Nevada, you have two years from the date of the accident or injury to file. However, there are exceptions in some cases. A lawyer can keep track of this deadline for your particular circumstances to make sure that you don’t miss it. 

Remember that before filing a lawsuit, your lawyer will probably pursue an insurance claim and try to negotiate. If you don’t leave enough time, it may cut this process short. It is best to hire a lawyer ASAP after an injury so that you can pursue all avenues to compensation.

Is It Expensive To Hire a Henderson Personal Injury Attorney?

Henderson personal injury lawyers calculate fees differently than other types of lawyers. Instead of a flat fee or hourly rate, most Henderson personal injury attorneys charge a contingency fee.

A contingency fee is an arrangement where a lawyer takes a percentage of your final settlement. This percentage is instead of other payments. That means you don’t pay your lawyer until your case is over. When it comes time to pay, your lawyer will take their percentage before transferring the remaining into your account. If your lawyer doesn’t recover compensation for you, you owe them nothing in attorney’s fees.

This is very convenient for personal injury victims. It means your lawyer will work hard on your case because if they lose, they won’t get paid. It also means you don’t worry about paying them upfront or coming up with the cash. You always have the money to pay them since the amount is taken from your settlement.
