Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You could have a personal injury case after almost any type of accident. Someone else must have been responsible for your injuries or losses.
These cases frequently arise after car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and other injury-causing events. These cases are typically based on negligence but may trigger strict liability for certain injuries like dog bites or product defect injuries.
The best way to determine if you have a personal injury case is to schedule a consultation with a legal expert.
Why Should I Hire a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney?
A personal injury lawyer can be a great asset when you are pursuing an injury claim.
- They can level the playing field. There is a huge disparity of power between you and the insurance company. They have almost unlimited resources to fight your claim. They will use their economic might to bully you into a low settlement. An attorney can put you on equal footing with the insurer. They can provide you with your own resources and protect your interests during the life of your claim.
- You’ll have experienced legal representation. Your lawyer can investigate your situation to gather evidence to prove your claim. They can file all claims and lawsuits — on time — and negotiate favorable settlements on your behalf.
- You’ll be blamed. Insurers are infamous for blaming victims for their own accidents. Nevada follows a modified comparative fault rule. If the insurer can prove you were 51% at fault for your injuries, you get nothing. If you are less than 51% at fault, your compensation will be reduced. Your personal injury attorney can protect you from unfair, untrue accusations of comparative fault.
- You need time to rest. You need time to heal and recover. You can’t do that if you are constantly working on your claim. Your lawyer can take over all aspects of your claim, while you focus on resting after your injury.

How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Your personal injury case is unique. Therefore, no lawyer can analyze its value without knowing the facts of your situation and the extent of the damages you’ve suffered.
The value of your claim will depend on several factors, including:
- The severity of your injuries
- The amount of your medical bills
- The extent of your lost income
- Whether your earning capacity has been diminished
- The amount of insurance coverage available
- Whether you share fault for your incident
- The strength of your evidence
Typically, cases involving serious injuries are worth the most. Still, the best way to determine your case’s worth is to schedule a free consultation with an injury lawyer. Reach out to us for help calculating your claim’s value.
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit After an Accident in Nevada?
This time limit is called a statute of limitations. It encourages injury victims to file their claims while witnesses and evidence are still available and relevant.
Consult with a personal injury attorney to determine the deadline to file your claim.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing unless they secure a favorable result in your case. The lawyer will receive a pre-agreed-upon percentage of your awarded compensation.
The percentage is based on the complexity of your claim, the severity of your injuries, and the parties involved. During your initial consultation, you’ll discuss the payment arrangement and agree on a percentage that the attorney will get if they win on your behalf.
At Battle Born Injury Lawyers, we offer a free initial consultation, and you pay absolutely nothing unless we secure a settlement or verdict in your favor. Contact us to learn more about creating an attorney-client relationship.
What Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?
Economic damages cover the financial costs associated with your injuries, including:
- Past and future medical costs
- Lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Out-of-pocket expenses, such as the cost of nursing care or prescription medications
Non-economic damages cover your personal losses that are more difficult to value, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Physical impairment
- Loss of quality of life
If the defendant acted maliciously, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. These losses are awarded to punish the defendant and set an example to deter the bad conduct.
What If I’m Partially At Fault For the Accident?
Nevada follows a modified comparative negligence law, meaning that the injured party can still get compensation as long as they aren’t more at fault than the defendant(s). In other words, you cannot be 51% or more at fault for the accident. If you share partial blame, your award will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
For example, a jury determines that you are 40% at fault for the accident. Your awarded damages will be reduced by 40%. If the jury awarded you $100,000, you’d only be entitled to $60,000. You can’t recover anything if you are assigned 51% or more of the blame.
Nevada Personal Injury Laws
Nevada’s personal injury laws can be confusing, especially if you are unfamiliar with them and facing challenges after an accident.
Here are some important state laws to familiarize yourself with:
- Statute of limitations: Victims typically only have two years from the accident date to file a lawsuit. There may be exceptions, so it’s crucial to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights to compensation. If you miss the deadline that applies to your situation, you’ll forfeit your right to hold the responsible party liable for your losses.
- Modified comparative fault: Individuals can get money from the at-fault party even if they’re partially at fault for the accident. However, you cannot be more at fault than the defendant. You can get a financial award if you’re no more than 51% to blame. However, your losses will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
- Fault-based auto insurance law: Nevada is a fault-based auto insurance state. You must prove that the at-fault driver caused the incident to recover compensation from their bodily injury liability insurance provider.
If you have questions after being injured because someone was careless, don’t hesitate to reach out to our personal injury attorneys for assistance.
What is Negligence and How Do I Prove It?
Negligence is the failure to act with reasonable care, causing another person harm.
The four elements of negligence are:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care. For example, a doctor owes their patients a duty to act with a reasonable standard of care. Drivers owe those sharing the roads a duty to drive carefully and follow traffic laws.
- The defendant breached their duty of care by acting carelessly (or intentionally).
- The breach directly caused your injury, and the harm was a foreseeable result.
- You sustained damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and inconvenience.
To prove the elements of negligence, we’ll gather evidence, including medical records, accident reports, photographs and videos of the scene and your injuries, and expert opinions.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
Whether your case goes to trial depends on the facts and circumstances. All personal injury cases are unique. However, most of them settle and don’t go to trial.
The factors that may affect whether your case goes to court include:
- The parties involved
- The willingness of the insurance company or defendant to settle for a fair amount
- The severity of your injuries
- The complexity of your claim
- The amount of damages you’re seeking
Our attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance companies, but we’ll be ready to battle them in court if they refuse to cooperate.
What Steps Should I Follow After an Accident?
The aftermath of an accident can heavily impact your claim for compensation from the at-fault party.
Here are a few quick steps you should take in order to protect your interests:
- Contact the authorities. Calling 911 is the easiest way and is required by law in some circumstances.
- Receive medical attention. Even if you aren’t obviously injured, it is worth going to a doctor. Some ailments are not immediately apparent, and documenting your injuries with medical proof is important.
- Stay at the scene. If you flee the scene, it will be much more difficult to obtain maximum compensation.
- Collect evidence. Take down insurance and contact information from those involved, if possible, as well as photos and videos of any losses you’ve incurred.
- Do not accept blame. Making statements of blame could reduce or prevent your claim for compensation.
It’s also an excellent idea to hire a personal injury attorney. A lawyer can guide you in real-time on how to proceed. Call us for a free consultation.
