Here is some basic information about personal injury in Las Vegas as you prepare to meet with one of our attorneys.
Las Vegas Personal Injury and Auto Accidents
One of the most common forms of Las Vegas personal injury is an injury suffered from an auto accident. As a state that uses a traditional tort system for auto accidents, Nevada has significantly fewer restrictions on bringing a lawsuit to court when an accident has occurred. Many people mistakenly assume that auto insurance coverage effectively eliminates the need for a Las Vegas personal injury tort action. Yet, Nevada has some of the lowest minimum requirements for auto insurance coverage. A driver need only carry $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person and $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident to be in compliance with the law. (Minimum property damage coverage is only $10,000.)
Thus, if you’re seriously injured in an accident and need intensive medical treatment, long-term care, and have otherwise suffered personal injury, the other driver’s insurance company may not cover all your damages. Likewise, not every driver on the road has taken the responsibility of obtaining auto insurance coverage before they get behind the wheel. Often times, extensive legal action is unnecessary to recover damages, but when it is, Cogburn Law Offices will make sure you recover all the damages owed to you as the result of an auto accident.
The sudden loss of a loved one leaves many people unable to process the reality of the tragedy. At Cogburn Law Offices, we represent the rights of families that are pursuing wrongful death claims for the loss of loved ones due to the negligence of another. We help you through the process during your mourning.
Other Types of Las Vegas Personal Injury
Dog bites, work-related injuries, medical malpractice, open swimming pools, and unsafe products and services are all common causes of personal injury, but they’re not the only ones. Likewise, not all auto accident damages involve collisions with other, at-fault drivers. Faulty design, shoddy repair work, stolen airbags, and other intervening factors may lead to their own cause of personal injury. In fact, any injury that is the result of negligence or wrongdoing and where liability can be demonstrated may be cause for a personal injury suit. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions and details about your personal injury. Quick action is often critical in pursuing a personal injury claim.
Las Vegas Personal Injury Recovery
An injury can be physical or psychological and can have direct or indirect effects on your quality and quantity of life. Yet, a personal injury must still fit one of the many categories of personal injury and recoverable damages, some of which are easier to demonstrate than others. Here’s a list of the personal injury recoveries:
- Future medical expenses
- Household services
- Loss of consortium of a child
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of society and companionship
- Lost earning capacity
