Las Vegas Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

A catastrophic injury can cause severe bodily damage and psychological trauma in an instant. These injuries often require ongoing treatment, resulting in devastating financial losses. Fortunately, if you suffer a long-term or permanent injury due to the negligence of another person, you could have grounds for civil recourse.

An experienced Las Vegas catastrophic injury lawyer at our firm could be an essential ally when seeking compensation from a negligent party. By working with our hard working local attorneys at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm, you could improve your chances of a full recovery of your past and future losses.

Types of Permanent Injuries

By definition, catastrophic injuries cause severe harm to a person’s body and mental well-being. In most cases, this type of harm is long-term, if not permanent, and could drastically impact your way of life.

Injuries that are often considered catastrophic include:

  • Severe burns
  • Paralysis and spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of mental capacity
  • Crushing injuries
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Death

These injuries can prevent you from engaging in your hobbies, continuing at your place of work, or even performing daily tasks. As such, it is important to work with a local attorney who could take into consideration the long-term implication of your catastrophic harm when calculating your recoverable damages.

How Do People Get Catastrophically Injured?

While any accident could result in a serious injury that could be labeled catastrophic, certain types of cases are more likely to cause devastating harm. These include:

  • Heat, chemical, or electrical burns
  • Defective products
  • Sports and recreational activities
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slips and falls
  • Workplace accidents

If you suffered a traumatic injury, it is important that you reach out to a qualified Las Vegas lawyer at our firm. Our team at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm could help you gather the necessary evidence to prove another person is responsible for the accident that caused your harm.

Statute of Limitations in Las Vegas

Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 11 sets forth different time periods in which a personal injury case must be filed, known as the statute of limitations. Depending on how you suffered a catastrophic injury, different deadlines may apply, making it important to work with our local attorneys. Failure to file by the applicable time limit will most likely result in dismissal of the case without consideration of its merits.

A typical personal injury case resulting from an accident is two years from the date of the injury. This time limit also applies to cases of wrongful death, where a loved one was lost as a result of their severe injuries. A two to four-year statute of limitations period exists for medical malpractice cases and product liability lawsuits, depending on the nature of the claims and damages.

Shoham was kind, patient and knowledgeable in explaining how to qualify my mother for Medicaid long term care. I did not even know my mother was eligible. There are so many aspects to paying for long term care that so many people — including myself — do not know about. One would be lucky to have this firm in your corner navigating you through it.

My parents don't know much about the best way (or any way) to plan their estate. My sister and I have been trying to get them to figure things out for a decade but they never do because it made them too nervous. I got recommended to Mr Segal by a friend and now the ball has started rolling! He made my parents feel comfortable...
