You could have grounds for civil litigation if someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness led to an accident, resulting in your injury or a loved one’s death. However, it falls on you to prove the defendant is at-fault, making the guidance of a seasoned attorney essential.
If you or a loved one were harmed in an accident caused by another’s negligence, do not hesitate to speak with a Paradise personal injury lawyer at our firm. Our experienced team at LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm can provide reliable representation to help you recover the compensation you are owed.
In personal injury cases, “damages” refers to both your losses and the financial compensation you may be entitled to. Compensatory damages aim to put an injured person in the same position they were in before the accident. These include both economic and non-economic losses, including:
Under Nevada Revised Statutes § 42.005, punitive damages may be awarded if the defendant is found to have behaved maliciously or recklessly. Punitive damages, which must be sought at the trial level, are designed to discipline individuals who have participated in particularly egregious conduct. Our accomplished personal injury lawyers in Paradise can advise you on the various forms of damages that might be available.
To obtain damages in a personal injury lawsuit, you and your local attorney must prove that the defendant was negligent or did not behave as a rational individual would in a similar situation. Additionally, Nevada courts will use adjusted comparative fault laws. This means a court will look at both the defendant and your actions and assign you each a percentage of blame. Your total recoverable damages will be proportionately reduced by your assigned percentage of fault. If you are determined to be more than 50 percent to blame, you could be barred from recovery entirely.
Under NRS §11.190(4) , the time available to an injured party or their family to file a civil claim against the responsible party is limited. Whether your personal injuries were caused by an auto collision, slip and fall, harmful medication, or dangerous property, you only have two years from the date of the injury to file a claim.
Failure to meet this strict deadline could prevent you from recovering the compensation you are due. In order to avoid this unfavorable situation, it is essential that you contact LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm as soon as possible after suffering personal injuries in Paradise to ensure that you file your claim on time.
Your time to bring a claim against a responsible party is limited. Do not waste time while your medical bills pile up. Our law office represents claimants in personal injury cases and we have the knowledge and resources to help you get the compensation you deserve. Please contact LVNV Legal | Injury Law Firm to speak with a Paradise personal injury lawyer right away.
I consulted with Mr. Segal on a business matter, and found him to be very detail-oriented and analytical. His legal knowledge and thorough analysis enable him to strategically position clients for success. I also found that he conducts himself in a professional manner and truly cares about his clients' interests.
Shoham's keen analytical mind, strong business sense and straightforward approach to litigation makes him a strong force to be reckoned with if you ever have to face him in the courtroom, and an even stronger ally to have when working on a case with complex legal issues. I endorse this lawyer.
Mr. Segal has handled several real estate deals for our company. His service is always professional, efficient and prompt. His response time is very quick and helpful. looking forward for working with him in the future. Best experience!
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.
Knowledgeable, professional and patient. Mr. Segal was always available to us and was able to take care of all of my family’s legal needs. I am so grateful that he was there to guide us through everything. Highly recommended!
Shoham has been handling my foreclosure case and I am beyond satisfied with the results so far. Beyond being very knowledgeable and professional, Shoham is very accessible and his demeanor is of an attorney who thoroughly calculates and strategizes his every move. I highly recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer for any sort of litigation.
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...
