Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Las Vegas

You may have grounds for a wrongful death case if the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another caused your loved one’s death. This type of claim can help heal parts of your family’s suffering as well as help alleviate the financial burden of losing a loved one.

After an unexpected death, there are many costs the surviving family members could face. These unexpected costs can pile up, causing a dire financial situation. When determining how much money to award the deceased’s heirs, the court will consider:

  • Loss of earnings and financial support;
  • Medical, burial, and funeral expenses incurred;
  • The savings of the deceased;
  • Loss of companionship and service;
  • Mental anguish, grief, and sorrow.

A wrongful death lawsuit is meant to help fix this situation as much as possible, and compensate your family for your pain and suffering as well.

Who May File a Wrongful Death Case?

Nevada law, under Nevada Revised Statutes § 41.085, permits the heirs of the decedent or their personal representative to file a wrongful death lawsuit. An “heir” is any person who would be able to inherit under the decedent’s estate if the decedent had died intestate, or without a will. A personal representative is often the executor of the estate or other named representative permitted to handle the decedent’s estate.

The right family member or personal representative is permitted to hire a Las Vegas attorney to help them through the complex legal procedures of handling a wrongful death case.

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...
