Death to a loved one places a great burden on a family. It can be even more devastating when a loved one passes away due to someone else’s negligent or violent actions. On top of outstanding medical bills, funeral costs, and mortgage payments, family members may be experiencing intense mental anguish and anger at the at-fault person.
Pursuing compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit may bring justice for the deceased and comfort for their surviving loved ones. A Spring Valley wrongful death lawyer could explain the legal aspects of these cases and help gather the necessary evidence for a strong claim. At LVNV Legal, our dedicated attorneys are here to help you and your family through this difficult time.
Any death in the family is a tragic event, and although money cannot bring your loved on back, there are specific circumstances for a wrongful death lawsuit to be appropriate. Generally, a death is considered wrongful if the decedent would have had the right to bring a personal injury case against another party had they survived the event. For instance, fatal car accidents, slips and falls, and medical malpractice incidents may all give rise to a wrongful death claim.
According to Nevada Revised Statute § 41.085, only people who would have been heirs to the decedent’s estate or the decedent’s personal representative may serve as plaintiffs in wrongful death actions. These lawsuits exist for the sole purpose of allowing these parties to collect compensation for their losses connected to the death. A Spring Valley attorney at our office could provide more information on the legal aspects of a wrongful death claim.
The goal of a wrongful death case is to collect the payments needed to make heirs and personal representatives whole. Under Nevada Revised Statute § 41.085, heirs may make claims for:
Personal representatives may also join in these lawsuits. However, these parties may only claim compensation for losses connected to medical expenses or funeral costs. A knowledgeable lawyer could help both heirs and personal representatives in Spring Valley to understand their roles in wrongful death lawsuits and successfully recover compensation.
The sudden death of a family member or loved one can place great strain on you and your family. If another person or entity caused the death, you may have options for recovering medical bills and funeral costs. Wrongful death lawsuits help many families protect their financial futures and gain a sense of accountability for their losses. A lawsuit may demand compensation for economic losses as well as loss of companionship.
At LVNV Legal, our Spring Valley wrongful death lawyers help heirs and personal representatives pursue these cases. We can work tirelessly to prove another party’s fault and properly measure the impact of the tragedy on your family. You do not have to go through this difficult time alone.

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...
