Personal injury claims in Nevada are subject to statutes of limitation, or time limits, on filing a claim, so it’s important to contact a Las Vegas accident attorney right away. A personal injury claim begins when the injured party, or plaintiff, files a complaint in the applicable court of law. The attorneys at Cogburn Law Offices will help you file a timely personal injury claim and provide legal representation in Nevada courts to help you win damages for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whatever the extent of your injuries, we will work diligently to win your case, so you can focus on recovery.
In order to pursue a personal injury claim, the injured party must show that the defendant is liable by proving the following:
- The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care
- The defendant did not comply with his or her duty of care
- The plaintiff suffered injuries as a result of the defendant’s actions or inaction
- The defendant’s failure to comply with his or her duty of care was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s injuries
The defendant in a personal injury case will have an opportunity to dispute the facts of the case, and may also attempt to refute the plaintiff’s claim of liability through various defenses.
Whether injuries from an accident are minor or severe, they often result in emotional stress, chronic pain, physical disfigurement, and long-term disabilities. If you win your personal injury case, you may be awarded monetary damages for current and future medical and rehabilitation expenses; disability benefits; pain, suffering and emotional distress; current and future lost wages; and property damages. In some personal injury cases, Nevada courts allow an injured party to recover punitive damages to punish the defendant and deter future misconduct and negligent actions.
